Hi All,


I'm looking at buying a new laptop for taking on training trips, sooooo many options though.  I'd prefer the base OS to be Linux, but may be swayed by OSX if the system is capable of dual booting linux in case it drives me round the bend too much.  I'd like to run Vulkan on it once the drivers roll out which may well mean OSX is out of the picture for quite a while as I haven't seen any noise about Apple adopting Vulkan.


So far my front runners are the Google Pixel 2015 and Macbook Pro 13 2015.  The later has better storage and basic capabilities of the OS.  However, I'm happy with dual boot so in theory should be able to make the Pixel more capable.


What experience do others in the community have on the laptop front?  How is the OSG/OpenGL experience on the latest Intel embedded graphics?


Cheers,

Robert.

Hi,Robert!

I use MSI GE62 with nvidia 965M on Ubuntu. Because of Nvidia Optimus I don't have V-Sync and it can't be disabled in BIOS. But overs OpenGL and CUDA features works well. Nvidia Prime works fine without tearing. Also I have i7-4720, that compiles very fast. So I add two Samsung SSD drives and have 300Mb/s speed. It's unexpensive 15.6 notebook. Also I managed to run Oculus on this notebook under Ubuntu, and can't do it under Win8.1. I'm happy with it for it's price.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Roman
