How are they powering the laptop with an electrical connection? I cannot imagine any laptop would run on a battery pack for more than a few minutes with a GPU strong enough to support VR.

I hope they use a Clevo based board. We could probably improve the run-time quiet a bit with a little 'Prema Touch'...

The P650RS has 4 RAM slots, the report only mentions two...

Why not something with a socketed desktop K-series CPU? It would be a shame to cripple it with a BGA turd CPU. It would be nice to be able to use if for something more than a VR backpack if one wanted to. This would be far too expensive to not have the capacity to pull double-duty as a full featured/full performance overclockable mini-desktop rig. BGA sucks.

Been using the Oculus Rift CV1 since release, I am hooked with VR. The experience is unexplainable when it works compared to monitor gaming, happy to see you are enjoying it also Prema.

Have you used any of these backpacks yet? As an owner of an HTC Vive in a decent sized basement I don't have any problems with cables. That being said I have plenty of space and in a smaller location it may be more beneficial for the backpack?

There's a Chinese add-on coming soon that makes the vive wireless. That would eliminate most of the function of this vr backpacks
