Reviews for the HP Omen 17-w100nc
We expect luxury machines from the Omen brand, but this laptop hasn’t quite delivered. It’s got the pace and the media chops, sure, but it’s thick, heavy, with a lack of software and underwhelming ergonomics. Those issues see it fall into mediocre territory – and that means it doesn’t live up to its Omen billing.

HP’s Omen brand is supposed to represent the last word in luxury and high-end gaming performance, but I’m a little underwhelmed by this machine. It’s fast, sure, but it doesn’t have the extra touches that I expect from a pricey gaming laptop. With all of that said, if you're looking for the cheapest GTX 1070 laptop on the market and are happy to put up with the compromises outlined above, this is a fine gaming laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: 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.
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.
