VR is finally looking like it’s ready to take off in the mainstream. While it’s been a long time coming, we’re finally at a point where the best VR headsets are becoming more affordable and, crucially, runnable.

However, today you don’t need the best gaming laptop or the best gaming PC to build your virtual world.
