What should i do

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need a new laptop to use for school before next summer, but I want to be able to run games after I can start my job. I have been thinking about getting a laptop with Thunderbolt 3, so I can run an external GPU when I can afford it. My current budget is only 300 but I will 600 by Christmas. Just wondering if this a good option to run my games and any good laptops with a core i5 8 GB of ram and 1 Thunderbolt 3 port

 

Storage and screen size/ resolution do not matter

E-gpu won't give you the full performance of the gpu. Maybe just snag a chromebook or something for school and save up for a pc?

I don't think you'll find any laptops with an i5, 8GB and Thunderbolt 3 with $300.

With $600 you may find a used laptop with a better dedicated graphics adapter, but that likely won't run any AAA titles at 60 fps.
