Can I use a laptop with VIVE Pro?
As long as your laptop meets the system requirements, you can use it with VIVE Pro.
If your laptop does not have a DisplayPort port but has a Mini DisplayPort port instead, you can purchase a Mini DisplayPort-to-Mini DisplayPort 1.2 or newer cable, and then connect it to the link box and to your laptop. Make sure that the cable you purchase supports Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K @ 60Hz or higher.
This workaround does not guarantee compatibility. Contact your computer or accessory manufacturer if you have questions.
