HP Omen review: HP's Omen offers high design, high performance

 

A slick midsize gaming laptop from a company not known for being on the cutting edge.

The HP Omen has a bold design, plenty of user customization options, a great keyboard, and something often missing from gaming laptops, a touchscreen.

The screen resolution is capped at 1080p, while the competition goes up to 4K. Routing all the ports and heat vents to the rear won't appeal to everyone, and the only graphics card available is decidedly mid-tier.

HP shakes up the world of gaming laptops with unique-looking and highly portable Omen. It offers very capable performance in PC games, despite being stuck with a last-gen graphics card.

HP Omen Review

 

The HP Omen 15t delivers solid gaming performance for the price in a sleek design, but there are more trade-offs than we'd like.

Sleek, attractive design; Decent gaming and overall performance; Affordable

Dim display ; Sluggish transfer speeds; Below-average battery life; Shallow keyboard

HP Omen Review

 

The word “omen” generally connotes bad juju for most people. For some longtime PC enthusiasts, however, it evokes fond memories of Voodoo PC's old beautiful and powerful desktops. While HP isn't bringing Voodoo PC back from the grave, it hopes to pay...

No hard-drive support; troublesome trackpad; not uber-powerful

HP Omen Review: This Gaming Laptop Does So Much Right

 

Laptops are about compromise. You can't fit everything inside. Thin machines always mean less processing power, or maybe less battery life. If you ask me, the HP Omen makes the wrong compromises. But gosh, does this gorgeous gaming laptop do so many...

A few stand-out features make this an enjoyable notebook to use as a main system

Excellent screen ; Relatively thin and light for a gaming notebook ; PCIe based solid state drive

HP Omen review

 

A most sophisticated and attractive gaming laptop

Bold, unique design ; Sublime screen ; Handles modern games with aplomb

Lacking screen brightness ; Uneven audio performance ; Pricey compared to competition

Mid level specs with high-end style, the HP Omen is a fantastic gaming laptop that sets a high bar with a unique design and excellent performance.

HP Omen review: Mid-range gaming on a wonderfully designed expensive laptop - Tech2

 

HP Laptops are generally known for their utilitarian looks. When it comes to stunning gaming laptops, the Alienwares and Razers of the world clearly have had an edge. But with the Omen, HP is planning to change that perception. But does it succeed at...

HP Omen is priced at Rs 1,59,990 and even by gaming laptop standards, the price is on the higher side. But then again, HP Omen does not look like any other gaming laptop. And this design will certainly command a premium pricing. A quick look online,...
