There are many Windows gaming laptops out there, but HP think there’s room for itself. That’s why the company has recently announced the new Omen gaming laptop line of products.
Of course, it is pretty hard for HP to compete with such veteran in gaming rigs like Asus, Dell, Razor and others. But it’s interesting to have a look at what the company is trying to produce in order to win the hearts of gamers from all over the world. Let’s have a look at the specs that it comes with:
- Intel Core i7 4710HQ CPU, running at 2.5GHz and boostable to 3.5GHz
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU
- SSD with 8GB of DDR3 RAM
- 15.6-inch, 1080p touchscreen
- 4.68 pounds
- Battery can last up to four hours and 45 minutes on its 4-cell, 58WHr lithium ion battery
Mike Nash of HP said recently the following:
“We know that 60 percent of the people who use PCs game regularly. We’ve got to get the performance right, specifically frame rates. We’ve got to get the portability right. And we have to create a unique gaming experience.”
The entry-level HP Omen will be priced at $1500 and will have a 128GB SATA SSD, but higher-end units will use PCIe for even faster performance. The laptop comes with a anodized aluminum chassis which includes a fully vented bottom panel, as well. There are two rubber feet that run almost all the way around the bottom besides openings at the front and back.
