Acer Predator G6

This Acer desktop goes off the reservation in design, looking like an armored tank tread. It includes a front-accessible hard-drive bay, but the side panel needs a screwdriver to remove.

Lenovo Ideacentre Y900

This desktop is massive, with some red accent lights and a clear side panel. This config hits the Core i7/Nvidia GeForce 980 sweet spot, and includes a hefty keyboard-and-mouse combo with plenty of macro keys.

Falcon Northwest Tiki

Smaller than most, but also more powerful and more expensive. The Tiki from Falcon Northwest is one of the main machines VR developers use to create content.

Origin PC Chronos

A great-looking small desktop that's a fraction of the size of big tower models. The highly customizable system packs in liquid cooling and has some very clever magnetic rubber feet that make it easy to switch between horizontal and vertical orientations.

Origin PC Eon17-SLX

One of the only laptops that can run VR hardware, this massive overclocked 17-inch from Origin PC manages to squeeze in a desktop Core i7 processor and a newer version of the desktop 980 graphics card made by Nvidia to fit into oversize laptop cases.

Velocity Micro Raptor Z55

Two big selling points for this configuration are the VR-ready panel on the front, offering access to the HDMI and USB ports needed to hook up a VR headset, and the inclusion of the Nvidia 980ti graphics card, which is a step up from the standard 980 card.
