70% HP Omen 17 (AN009TX) review: Playing it safe
Source: Gadget Show English
HP Omen 17 has one of the best gaming device with top-tier specifications you will find in any laptop. However, it is also not the only one in the given price segment. Even with those heavy specs, it is likely to witness a good amount of competition coming from rivals such as Dell, MSI, Acer and more.

Model:

With the proliferation of gaming laptops by companies like Asus, Lenovo, MSI and more, HP  has had to raise its game, too, in the past few months. The company released its new range of Omen-branded gaming laptops in February this year and has since then launched several iterations, among others another beefy gaming laptop, the new Omen 17 (17-AN009TX). The Omen 17 builds on the same design that HP has been carrying ever since the introduction of its dedicated gaming series. Being a gaming laptop, it is bound to be heavy and bulky. The laptop weighs 3.7kg, which is on the heavier side when it comes to gaming laptops. However, bulk and brawn are attributes that are associated with most gaming laptops as some even come with dedicated suitcases. The screen is a 17.3-inch anti-glare WLED-backlit Full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, it is sufficiently saturated and has that required punch while playing heavy games. The exhausts are placed strategically right at the screen hinge area, facing outwards. Exhaust grilles are also there on the underside. The two speakers can be found under the laptop alongside the rubber lids. The backlit full-size island-style keyboard, as already seen on other laptops of the Omen family, stayed the same. The traveling time of the keys is slightly more than what is found in traditional laptops. This will not take much time to get used to if a user is coming from a regular laptop. Gamers, however, may love it given that they use it in a rougher manner than others.

The new gaming laptop packs one of the most powerful processors under the hood, the  7th-generation Intel ‘Kaby Lake’ Core i7 processor. The notebook also boasts the Nvidia GTX 1070 GPU, which has 8GB of DDR5 RAM of its own. In general, the device can support up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB hard drive (7200rpm) and a 256GB SSD. Video chatting is also good on the Omen 17. It has a TrueVision Full-HD webcam coupled with microphones in case users do not have headphones at hand. As far as the operating system is concerned, Windows 10 performs just about fine. It comes with its own native features, including Windows Hello security technology. Users get some of HP’s native apps in the mix, such as HP 3D DriveGuard, Audio Switch, Documentation, ePrint, JumpStart, Orbit, Recovery Manager and more, to customize the gaming device further. On both sides of the body, there is a bunch of connectivity options, which pretty much fulfill the needs of a typical gamer. Users also get a USB 3.1 Type-C port, 3 USB 3.1 Gen-1 ports, 1 HDMI port, a headphone jack, a multi-format SD-card reader, and a Mini DisplayPort alongside the usual Bluetooth v4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac combo.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
