    On a technical standpoint, there's no reason for the controllers not to work with your laptop. The video card though might not be enough to handle VR games.

    You can always try the SteamVR Performance Test to see where you stand.

    You can also try Vridge, which allows you to run for 10 minutes sessions at a time without paying for it, and see how you fare with a couple of VR games.

    If you can get a decent VR performance from your current system then, sure, the controllers will work for you. Otherwise, you might be limited to only mobile VR games until you upgrade your computer.
