I mean it's not surprising but it's still impressive the amount of power laptops will have for sure. It'll also be impressive how expensive they get lol

Yeah, there is a reason why my current laptop is still Ivy Bridge and has a GTX670MX. Gaming-grade laptops are crazy money now.

Ah well, when I travel I don't play many games anyway, at least outside of Civ and Total War, both of which run OK at their lowest settings on my current setup.

Tbh I prefer something like a XPS 13 for a laptop. I dont see the need to have a dedicated GPU. Even then though for just a cpu and no dedicated graphics I still feel like those laptops('premium Ultrabooks) are expensive.

Outside of my feelings though I am actually wanting pretty bad to switch to a XPS 13 and external GPU, would love to clear up desk space and have the ability to unplug and go mobile. I'm just waiting for better support and most likely the next thunderbolt standard to ensure maximum performance (iirc there is a slight performance drop).

But many people game on laptops. A large portion tbh, so if they are willing then I don't see why I should stop them.

I use an Ivy Bridge Thinkpad T430 with an eGPU adapter via the expresscard slot for gaming atm, your choice of card & setup is fairly limited in terms of making good use of it though. NVidia blocked expresscard eGPUs with later 1000 series drivers, so some later cards (1050 line and down, realistically probably the best card you'd want to use with such a bandwidth limited link) don't work at all, not really sure why they did that but it limits you to AMD cards if you want something modern. I think there's similar adapters for the mPCIe slot from like £5 for a really basic one but that can get quite messy.
