VR is slowly but steadily getting into the mainstream with technology companies making the tech affordable and accessible. So, let’s look at some more options of the VR-ready laptops.

Alienware 17


The Alienware 17 comes equipped with up to an NVIDIA GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, which is pretty much bananas. The GTX 1080 is near the very top of the NVIDIA line and will have no problem running your Rift or Vive. The 17.3-inch display is available in 1080p, 1440p, and 4K configurations.

With up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a big solid-state drive (SSD), you’re sure to have a great VR gaming experience with the Alienware 17. The device price starts from about $1,479.

Lenovo Legion Y720

The all-new Lenovo Legion Y720 is an Oculus Certified gaming laptop that comes packed with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and hybrid storage.

The display is 15.6 inch screen and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This laptop features built-in Xbox One wireless controller support and Dolby Atmos speakers for a premium audio experience.

Razer Blade



The new Razer Blade (prices starting at about $1,800) is only 0.7 inches (1.77cm) thick which is hard to believe when you consider there is an NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and up to a 1 TB PCIe solid-state drive inside the chassis. Don’t forget about the quarterback, a 7th-generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor that keeps everything running smoothly.

The 14-inch, 1080p display (also available in 4K) comes with three USB-A 3.0 ports, one Thunderbolt 3 port, and an HDMI port for easy VR connectivity.

Asus ROG Zephyrus

Best Max-Q Design - Asus ROG Zephyrus


The Asus ROG Zephyrus packs a powerful Nvidia 1080 GPU into a thin-and-light chassis thanks to Nvidia’s Max-Q design standard. A term borrowed from aerospace engineering, Max-Q refers to systems that are engineered for precise performance and power efficiency.

With a perfect balance of power and portability, Asus’ $2,699 ROG Zephyrus is a certified gaming beast, though its less than 2 hrs of battery life may turn you off quickly.

Acer Predator 17 X

If portability is not an issue with you, then Acer Predator 17 X’ VR-ready gaming performance is unbeatable. It sports a full-fat Nvidia 980 desktop graphics card and a built-in overclocking tool for your gaming needs. Add to this a row of customizable macro keys, fantastic heat management and a $2,800 price tag that’s hundreds less than many competing systems.

The 17 X also features the Killer DoubleShot Pro networking, which will automatically optimize your traffic for lag-free performance, and can even combine wired and wireless connection to give as much bandwidth as possible.

So, now that you know all about the best VR-ready laptops available in the market, take a pick and enjoy best-in-class VR gaming experience this holiday season.
