Seriously, his educational interest is in computer graphics, animation, gaming, etc., so I'm expecting that his "dream" laptop that he worked & saved his $$ for 1-2 years ago may fall a bit short at some point.
In all honesty, you could do a VR ready version of that notebook for about $4k. It blew me away that you could now price one north of $20,000. When I built mine last year, mine was as far as you could go at $8k. I have 3 hard drives, now you can get a 4th. Dear God!

But based on your reply, it might not be a bad investment. Pool his resources and augment with yours, and get him a nice rig. I'll be happy to help spec one out.
