HP Omen 17 Review and Specifications
For the most part, gaming laptops are made to look aggressive, with angular bodies, multicolored lights on the lid and keyboard and big stylized fan vents. You might also find extra buttons or other controls on the keyboard deck, making these systems appear more like a mobile command center than a laptop. HP, however, took more of an “iron fist in a velvet glove” approach with the HP Omen 17. For the Omen, it’s mainly the components on the inside that make it a gaming system.
Gaming laptops have little purpose to envy their desktop counterparts anymore, and the HP Omen 17 ($1,299 starting, $1,799 as reviewed) exhibits why. This beastly notebook’s Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card and Intel Core i7 processor allow it to deal with gorgeous-looking PC video games and virtual reality with equal aplomb, and it appears great as well. If you can live with any heat and fan noise, the HP Omen 17 is, without a doubt, one of the best laptops for enjoying compromise-free gaming on the go.
