Thanks for the replies guys.
Through your recommendations and some searching on my own, I’ve found that there are in fact a few high end laptops that seem to be capable.
MSI makes a few laptops with Mobile versions of the Nvidia Quadro cards. Those look pretty promising, but from what I can tell the GPU specs ( cuda cores etc… ) are close enough to the GTX 1080 that it’s worth going with a gaming rig that has one in it like the Razer Blade pro or the MSI gaming laptops
I haven found any info comparing the mobile Quadros to the GTX1080s but I will look for it.
if you’re curious, These are all the highest end laptops I could find as of today:
Sager NP9873-S Notebook ( i7 / gtx 1080 )
Razer Blade Pro
MSI WT72 ( Xeon / Quadro )
MSI GT83VR ( 2 SLI gtx1080s / 18.3" Screen)
MSI GT73VR ( gtx1080 )
All these laptops go for around $4 K, they all have desktop specs.
Next I will look into lower priced alternatives, but frankly, I’m so tired of my current laptop being nearly unusable, that I’m prepared to spend $4K if it means I can work on the go.
Thanks for you help guys
