Thank you for this guide, it's really helpful! This looks like a dream budget setup I could technically pull off with my new Dell Precision 7510 I just got at my new office! ...Unless it's not.

Actually, I'm wondering how feasible my use case would be. I'd be taking this hardware home from work and plugging it into eGPU setup via M.2 port. Then, in the morning (after yet another senseless night spent killing monsters as Geralt of Rivia) I'd be unplugging it and going to work as nothing ever happened. Given the access to the port is not a problem (I'd simply leave the back lid unscrewed all the time), would an everyday routine like that damage the M.2 port? It wasn't designed for such hotplug use. Also, wouldn't the software setup be a hassle? Would I need to go through many preparatory steps (like installing drivers, turning off iGPU) every day to get that Witcher 3 running in the evening?

Maybe this is rather a stationary setup, not meant to be plugged/unplugged every day, as it would be simply impractical. Would anyone more experienced with M.2 setups give me some insight on the mobile viability of this solution? Cheers!

Hi

I have some questions and I hope you can help me.
I have a 7567 too and i have some questions. I would be very happy if you could help me. 
 
We can't do this though the wifi card slot right?
When i remove the ssd can i plug it with the hdd with something like a multiplier? Or i must choose between ssd and hdd? If we can use both of them how can we do it?
 
Thank you in advance.

Gotuko, per opening post, your system has a 2.5" SATA and x4 3.0 M.2 drive slot. Hunew relocated his M.2 SSD to the 2.5" slot using an enclosure:

120GB M.2 SSD relocated to 2.5″ SATA drive bay via an enclosure. M.2 slot being used for my eGPU.

That free up the x4 3.0 M.2 slot for eGPU use. Alternative, you can wifi port but that will give you a x1 3.0 link only. An eGPU using the x4 3.0 M.2 slot as Hunew has done,  giving near-desktop levels of performance. The i7-quad CPU making this a powerhouse.

I am planning to buy the the core i5 with 1050 (non-ti) version. This eGPU implementation should work fine right?

what is the difference between this adapter:

and

https://egpu.io/go/to/pce164pn03m2 should work similarly right?

So in theory it should be possible in:

Have you heard of any other possible, considerable-cheap candidates?

I have a dell 7567 with a nivdia 1050 card. Can i install another 1050 card as my eGPU and have SLI/Crossfire enabled ? Because if i install something like a 980 i wont be able to use my 1050 and 980 at once right?

@nando4: I got an R43 arriving in a couple of days, the 4pin power connector for it is just the regular disk drive connector, right? So I can  just use a 4 pin molex to that small connector?

i am looking for a new laptop for gaming/work, i can buy a 7577 on ebay for about 800 bucks which is in the budget.

i assume since its part of the same model that both machines use the same chipset, bios, and the like so both should work in the same way you are describing above?

have you gotten a GTX 10XX card installed in this? id be curious to see the bench results compared to a TB3 setup

i cant find a 7567 that has a i7 in it, did you swap the board from a 7577?

Can't believe that it runs with internal display  😯 
1) Setup use only one 4-pin FDD and two GPU power lines?
2) How do you turn on your PSU? Is it starts automatically when you turn on your laptop?
3) Does length of M.2 cable affect result speed?
