No Comment 0 View



This has been a ensign year for gaming PCs, and gaming laptops in particular. Following glorious gaming systems from Lenovo, Asus, Origin PC, Razer and others, HP is adding a new entry, timed for a holiday season, called a Omen.

HP during one time constructed many gaming laptops and desktops, generally after appropriation a Voodoo code in 2006, though has of late left a PC gaming marketplace to others. The new Omen is, a association says, partial of a altogether consumer plan to expostulate expansion in new segments and interest to ardent business who know what they want.

The Omen is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop that pairs an Intel Core i7 CPU with Nvidia’s GeForce 860M graphics card, and 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. That’s remarkably identical to systems such as a Lenovo Y50 Touch, that has a same 1,920×1,080-pixel touchscreen (although a Y50 is accessible in an discretionary 4K configuration).



The simple black design, milled from a plain square of aluminum, is accented by slim edges with a orator grille along any side. That slim corner doesn’t seem to leave most room for ports and connections, so they’re all on a back. There’s also a red backlit keyboard with 6 programmable duty keys along a right edge. The Y50 has a identical red keyboard, though looks boxier and thicker compared to a Omen, that is about 20mm thick and weighs 4.68 pounds (2.1kg).

That bottom pattern will be accessible to sequence in a US starting Nov 4 from a Microsoft Store, BestBuy.com and other online retailers, and shipping a few weeks after that. The bottom pattern will be $1,499, with a 256GB SSD choice for $100 more, or a 256GB SSD and a 4GB chronicle of a GeForce 860M for a sum of $1,699.

At this time, general pricing and availability, including for a UK and Australia, was not accessible from HP, though we’ll refurbish this post when it is. The bottom cost of $1,499 translates to £940 or AU$1,715, though design final internal prices to change considerably.
