I like the thought of SSD drives..

but have never owned one.. My iMac has a fusion drive and I do see a difference in boot time of the iMac and of software.. If you don't do anything major with the laptop, I'd probably keep the costs down and go with a regular or fusion drive.. I know very little about laptops, tho.. I do take a PC laptop home, on occasion, to work from home, but I can only do 3D models and Unity stuff, which is what I build the VR presentations in.. but, since I don't have a Vive at the house, I can't test the stuff at home..

Question is, would do you do intensive stuff on laptop if you had the capability? I agree video editing will test your setup - especially rendering, but it might be cool to have a setup you can edit on while another vid is rendering.. I can do it both at the same time at home on the iMac, but its not as smooth as I'd like..

The Thunderbolt 3's are supposed to have twice the bandwidth of the Thunderbolt 2's.. That's what supposedly makes the difference with VR presentations.. The 2's probably can't transfer the frames fast enough and you lost frame rate, which ain't cool in VR.. Typically you shoot for 90FPS, which is difficult if you have a complicated environment, but I've gone down to 15FPS and it still looked good and I didn't puke.. lol..

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
