If you want a full-on desktop replacement, check out this 17.3-inch model instead. It has the same Core i7-6700HQ processor, GTX 970M graphics card, and 8GB of RAM as the 15.6-inch model above, but the screen is significantly bigger. It does weigh-in at over eight pounds, but this huge laptop is still significantly easier to bring to LAN parties than a monitor and tower PC.

Prefer to go all-in on a high-end desktop gaming machine? This Area-51 configuration offers a six-core 3.3GHz Intel Core i7-5820K CPU, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card (with 4GB of memory), 16GB of DDR4 RAM (2133MHz), a 128GB solid-state drive, a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive, a Blu-ray drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support.

Dell has partnered with HTC to optimize this system for the HTC Vive, but this incredible machine can drive the Oculus Rift as well. The CPU and GPU exceed the recommended specs for both headsets, so performance should be no problem.
