    Fix the problem of a laptop without proper ports for VR.
    Thanks to lower system requirements for Windows Mixed Reality (WMR), many laptops with nothing more than integrated graphics can indeed offer up a satisfying experience. However, many laptops without a dedicated graphics card (GPU) also won't come with the required ports (like HDMI) for a connection, so you have to look for an adapter. Likewise, if you're working with an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you might need an extra port or two for sensors or other accessories that only uses USB-A. Do note that the Rift and Vive are quite finicky when it comes to HDMI, and you might see positive results one minute and negative results the next when using an adapter. Your best bet is to connect straight to the HDMI port on your PC when using either VR system.
    Since most modern laptops seem to be using USB-C quite frequently, I've put together this list of USB-C adapters ― to HDMI or to USB-A ― that work with WMR and VR.
