by the way, the NEW Threadripper 3 is going to change how we consume point cloud data...
You sir have a much more optimistic view on the pace of software development in this business than I do. ;)
EPIC!!!

I simple rule of thumb with computers ... If its to cheap to be true, run away...
Agreed, particularly with laptops where high-spec and low price often leads to a laptop that will burn out with thermal issues on the first sustained use.

Also looking forward to the threadripper 3 which I'm hoping will be a drop in replacement for my 1950x with double the core count, improved clock and improve IPC.

This is a the XPS with an i9.
I have been using an Alienware Area51 tower gaming PC for scan processing for the last 2 years (OC intel i9, gtx1080ti 11gb, 64gb RAM. I have had a ton of reliability problems with the gaming components (Card and RAM). Superfast when it is working but just not mission-critical work station.

I have been using a new Dell 7740 laptop for the last month because I needed to be more portable for some upcoming jobs. The 5GHz core clock is amazing how fast I can import and process scans. 128gb of ram really helps import larger and larger projects (200 setup single import no problem). As we know cyclone does not really use the g-card that much so its working great (real nice on photogrammetry projects tho). I will do a more in-depth review as I get several more project under my belt with it.
