    I have a question, do you need a laptop for the razer core to function? Or can you use it as an actual desktop?

    Hi there. Not exactly sure what you mean by using the Core as an actual desktop. The Razer Core is just a box that holds a power supply, USB hub, and a desktop GPU (like the GTX 980 for example). If you just plug a monitor and some peripherals into it like you would with an actual desktop, it's still missing the CPU (and other components that a computer needs to run).

    I would say you need a laptop for the Core.

    No, you need a laptop with thunderbolt 3 connector.
    The razer core is a external desktop graphic container, with thunderbolt 3 you can connect it to your laptop to get a desktop graphics potencial in a laptop, since the biggest problem for a gamer laptop is a great graphics card.
