    Of course, all those ports of yours, and your "high speed SSD" and whatnot, PLUS your high-spec GPU, are sharing a single PCIe x4 interface. You might see some bottlenecking, there...

                                Entertaining video, no doubt. I find that many successful YouTubers have a disconnect to the actual average consumer. Many of them seem to forget that we cannot just dish out our half-year mortgage payment, we have many more items we HAVE to pay for before we buy something we might want but not necessarily need.

                                I feel like you could've put a shelf on the back of the drawers that could've held the eGPU instead of trying to put it into the back of the drawers and having to then cut down the drawer size. Based off the picture of the desk at 5:39, it appears that the drawers don't go the full depth of the desk so you'd still have room even if you had the desk up against a wall.

                                      The trick to g etting velcro tape to hold something upside down with weight to it, is to prime the woods surface with 3M VHB surface primer. It's used for their welding tape, and it gives the tape a really good surface to bite into. In fact the velcro may still fail, but it will be the velcro coming off it's own adhesive, not off the desk or the device.

                                            Is an EGPU really required in this setup or it is just to make the setup more powerful?

                                              I'd say not required at all depending on your laptop. You can buy gaming laptops with 2080's in them. You'd just wanna come up with a better cooling solution and perhaps hide the laptop in a drawer that has built in fans and some sound absorbing padding. That's what I'd do vs the external GPU setup.

                                                          I lose interest when I hear the words ‘our friends over at xyz were kind enough to hook us up with...’ AGAIN.
                                                          And when some or other required product is shown on its webpage, the price is not dwelled upon.

                                                          So how about giving us the final cost and bill of materials of all the required parts, at full price, at the start of the video?

                                                                              What mouse and keyboard is that?

                                                                              Really nice setup! :) But it's probably cheaper and simpler to use a cheaper notebook or tablet instead of a high end gaming laptop.
