I bought it to replace my desktop and to use with Cycling apps so needed a great Graphics card. "Does what it says on the tin"

My wife isn't keen on the red keyboard and back lighting.

- Battery life isn't up to much, but then it's not really designed for that, so it doesn't bother me. - Once you have plugged in a Rift and the two sensors, you've run out of standard USB ports. I ended up buying a USB-C to USB adapter to plug in my...
