Reviews for the HP Omen 17-ck2000
Source: Laptop Media
HP has once again created a laptop that is absolutely packed with features. Audio is created by Bang & Olufsen, the sound card supports DTS:X Ultra, while there is a present 3.5mm jack. Not to mention the port selection, which not only features a Thunderbolt 4 connector, SD card reader, and a real HDMI 2.1, but also a Mini DisplayPort, three USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, and a LAN port. This is pretty much every port you’ll ever need in a laptop. Of course, the hardware is a big part of this setup. Its 55W 13th Gen Intel CPU is insanely powerful, while the RTX 4080 is capable of using its full 175W TGP budget. However, there are a couple of things regarding the cooling. For starters, it only uses three heat pipes, which sounds like madness in 2023. And while it can sustain the aforementioned RTX 4080, it doesn’t come without disadvantages. One price to pay is the high internal temperature. Another is the high noise. Last, but not least – it doesn’t quite get to the clocks reached by the Lenovo Legion 7 (16″, 2023).

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» 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.
