Having lived off of a 13" Acer Aspire S7 ultrabook for the past 4 years, I needed something new that could better handle CAD modeling and simulations. With VR becoming more and more prominent as the new HMDs are being released to consumers I needed to make sure I also had a rig capable of keeping up with that technology. The HMD technology I am eyeing includes the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, OSVR, Magic Leap, etc.
The goal was to build something I could upgrade in the future if necessary without having to replace every part.
Let me know what you think.
Update -- Ran a Steam VR performance test and passed with flying colors!
