At CES last week Walmart had a booth showcasing their new range of EVOO 15" and 17" laptops, which are all well within the current Sapphire spec for vMix.
As soon as I got back to the UK I ordered one through a friend in California at $799 + local sales tax and £60 DHL Shipping. BARGAIN. Should be arriving tomorrow and will replace my ageing MSI i7 vMix laptop.
But the story gets better (or worse in my case) as when relaying this to a colleague who then went and bought one, the price has dropped yet again from an original $1299, to $799 and now a stonking $649!!

Comparing other better known brand gaming laptops in the circa $1500 category then this looks to be a no-brainer. Plus there are many positive reviews on the EVOO brand on YouTube.
When it arrives tomorrow and I get vMix 4K loaded on it I'll be happy to answer any questions interested forum user might be wanting to ask.

It's not really Sapphire spec. The GPU(1650) is a bit weaker than gtx 1060 or 1070, and it seems to be Optimus and not g-sync which is important for the performance in vMix.
