A GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q notebook at under S$4,000 is pretty attractive (considering Razer's Blade 15 costs nearly as much and and only features a GeForce RTX 2070), but it becomes a lot less so when you realise you have to pay extra for more RAM and install it yourself to unlock the notebook's full potential. Oddly enough, last year's Omen 15 is still listed on HP's website with 9th Gen processors and dual-channel memory, but it seems like the new model only comes in a single-channel configuration. Still, if you're familiar with your hardware and don't mind the extra expense, the Omen 15 remains a decent and relatively 'affordable' choice for a gaming notebook today with top specs. It's just difficult to recommend to someone who doesn't want to do their own upgrades (and they really shouldn't have to).

The HP Omen 15 2019 is, without a doubt, a powerful laptop, but like other devices, it has its flaws. It has a great display configuration, above-average gaming performance, and slim form factor. The only significant issues that I had here is that it has heating problems while its battery life is subpar. But overall, the gaming laptop is one heck of a performer and worthy upgrade if you have an older Omen. However, the pricing of this device will most likely affect your decision to get it.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
