Sorry about that. I copied and pasted from the reviews site and that was with the dock config they had. I will update it.

Compared to Razer's core and Stealth this is pretty good deal, yes u have to buy gpu but its futureproof

i'm in the market for a nice ultra portable for work but i'm also a gamer. my SLI 750m laptop is feeling a bit dated and can't play games like Just Cause 3 without being on the low settings. would this laptop make sense for both needs? cost isn't as much an issue. i would, however, like a bit of future proofing and the docking station is intriguing in that sense.

any advice or feedback would be much appreciated. i realize i could spend less on a gaming desktop but i do need a laptop as well so i thought this might be a great compromise.

thanks!

the laptop have to be docked in order to take advantage of the discrete gpu. therefore when docked you need a separate keyboard, mouse and screen in order to use it comfortably since the dock elevates the laptop off the surface. so if you are okay with that then why not, but the cpu is a bit dated. i really like the razer stealth thunderbolt 3 approach better just my 2 cents.
