Dell says that the Visor will be available in a few months in the U.S. for $349.99, which is $2650.01 less than what you can expect to pay for the Development Edition of HoloLens today. These devices may not require external markers for positional tracking as seen with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but they still need a relatively powerful PC to run on. Last year, the company took a big step towards this when it announced that some of the world's largest PC manufacturers were working with it on Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

The Visor was made in partnership with Microsoft and is compatible with the Windows Mixed Reality platform. The company confirmed that headset and motion controller bundles will be available for the holiday season starting at $399 from hardware makers HP, Lenovo, Dell, and Acer.

Windows Mixed Reality PCs will consist of desktops and laptops with integrated graphics. 90 fps is undoubtedly preferable, but we don't know at what price these PCs will start at. The headsets will run at 60 frames per second when plugged into these PCs. It doesn't look like going all-in on Windows VR will be dramatically cheaper than grabbing a Rift or Vive, then. The upcoming Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be the first to power VR experience with built-in sensors to track the user's physical position without needing them to purchase and install external sensors in their room.

Dell also designed the headset to be comfortable with a durable quality to it.
