HP has the mid-tier gaming laptop segment down pat at this point. The $1,299 HP Omen 15 gives you a laptop that can blend in relatively well in an office setting, but can still serve up great gaming performance. True, it’s not using one of Nvidia’s more powerful GPUs, but it can still deliver solid frame rates depending on the settings. Plus, you get a lovely display, good battery life (for a gaming laptop) and great performance and transfer rates.

If you're in the market for a new gaming laptop, the Ryzen-based HP Omen 15 is a decent place to start. Sure, you are paying a slight premium for the Omen branding, but that gets you a configuration that can handle most games at the medium setting and should be able to run popular titles like Fortnite cranked up. However, I do wish HP had opted for a better display and a bigger battery.

HP has been fairly clear with its messaging this year; Omen is for gaming and Envy for content creators. While the Intel variant still lends itself to content creation in a fairly strong capacity, the Ryzen variant falls flat in all aspects of creative needs. This is partly due to the severely limited amount of RAM on board and a display that isn’t bright enough or capable of reproducing the entire sRGB colour space. However, when it comes to gaming, the Omen 15 does not disappoint. When it comes to thermals, the Omen 15 once again impresses. It offers better upgradability than what you’d get in competing machines, so if you’re looking for a purely gaming machine that can double up as your casual daily driver, consider the Omen 15 Ryzen edition. If you expect more, go for a higher tier variant.
