Hi there, I'm having a hell of a time finding a GPU anywhere to run a new simulator. I'm hoping I can find a decent price on a laptop capable of running these minimum specs at the recommended or high end level. Thanks!

Hello @Rickplaysbass and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. Per your specs, we'd advise to stick with the simulation recommended or high-end requirements. So for a 6 core processor and 16 gigs of ram on a laptop will cost more than the slightly higher than average laptop pc.
You can find the following laptop computers on Microcenter.com, just type in the SKU number and search:
Lenovo Legion Y740 refurbished gaming laptop sku# 111682
Lenovo Legion 5 sku# 105304
Msi Gf65 thin 10ue-97 gaming laptop sku# 237701
Dell XPS 15 9500 Sku# 137844
Take a look at those and let us know what you think.
