Portable laptop Vive compatible

Hello all,
I am orienting to buy a new laptop. I'm looking for a portable laptop to do some developing on location as well as to take it with me abroad to give demonstrations. 
Is there anyone that tried the HTC VIve + controllers with the new MSI gs63VR laptop? This laptop has optimus, would this constitute a problem? Anyone that tried it with the ASUS GL502? Any suggestions for other portable laptops that would suffice are very welcome! 
Thanks a lot in advance!
Best,

Yes the MSI GS63VR is VR ready. Another great, portable option in that range would be the Razer Blade 14" which also features the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.

Or you could go with a normal (light) latop that has a Thunderbolt 3 port - and then hook up an external GPU such as the Razor Core, Atikio Node or Asus ROG XG.  Put a GTX 1070  or above in the eGPU.

I've an HP Omen and with a miniport to hdmi adaptor it runs great,one proviso, don't ever run this laptop without power for anything as it will mess with your graphics card power setting
