Well, they seem to have discovered that eGPUs of today are not gaming laptop replacements, nor cost-savers Smile What the review(er) is clearly missing is that there are people who use laptops for uses other than (gasp) gaming-on-the-go. It already throws up a couple of red flags when someone says "you have to meet some very specific criteria, like not wanting to have two laptops or wanting to have a laptop without a powerful GPU". Well... From my perspective (especially when looking at the actual number and type of devices being sold), people who want multiple laptops or *don't* want their laptop to be more portable are the ones with the "specific" requirements Smile

So, yes, if you're a hardcore gamer and you're ok with having a gaming laptop - then the review is correct, this doesn't really help you. If you're not someone who wants a gaming laptop - then the review is irrelevant at best, slightly misleading at worst.

Hey, just saw that you own a Oculus rift too, did you try to run Bigscreen or stufs like that?

Take a look on this - ( ) ?
Is it possible to run it on Spectre x360

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
