Does anyone know if it's possible to rent a gaming laptop? If so where from? I want something quite grunty.

I want to play with an oculus rift dev kit 2 but I don't have a high enough spec machine hence the reason for wanting to rent.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks.   I emailed them re: the lappy with the 2GB GPU which I assume is the best.  I'll research tonight how good that GPU is.

Hi I would stay away from HP as a gaming laptop renting or buying in my experience they have been a nightmare old drivers and HP has their own version of windows so peripherals won't work properly.

After the latest Oculus/Facebook news I'm no longer going to buy a DK2 and thus no longer need a gaming laptop.

Thanks for your replies though, much appreciated.
