Reviews for the HP Omen 17-w104ng

80% HP Omen 17 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
HP has a solid entry into the high-end gaming notebook market with the new Omen 17. This 17.3-incher has excellent gaming performance, and it cranks your game frames with minimal heat and noise. Its revised cooling system is well-equipped to handle its Nvidia GTX 1070 chip and Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor. However, the HP’s native 4K screen resolution was a little too high for even the GTX 1070 to handle with maxed-out details in leading-edge games. The display scales down to 1080p rather well, but we’d really like to see a 1440p display offered to make the most of this card.

90% HP Omen 17 review: Great gaming performance at a great price
Source: PC World English
Despite the sedate style, the simple truth with the Omen 17 is that you’re getting top-of-the-line performance at a pretty good price. Our review model, for example, with its GTX 1070, quad-core CPU, 16GB of DDR4/2133 RAM, 256GB SSD, and 4K G-sync panel is $1,800. To get those parts in a 17-inch laptop from other vendors might cost you another $200 to $400. Of course, those other vendors will give you a more aggressive look, more flashing lights and more bling, but is it really worth it? That’s ultimately up to you. As it stands, the Omen 17 is hella fast and a hella good deal.

HP Omen 17 Hands On: Great Hardware, Uninspiring Design
Source: Lowyat.net English
All, I think that the HP Omen 17 may not be the most attention-grabbing gaming laptop around, but for those who don’t mind the looks, this gaming notebook should definitely be considered. Not only is it ‘portable’, it also packs a beast of a graphics card. If you are looking for a more exuberant gaming notebook that constantly screams for attention, you may want to look elsewhere.
Positive: Powerful hardware; solid workmanship; decent speakers; comfortable keyboard. Negative: Only 1 color backlit; relatively thick and heavy; no optical drive.

Comment

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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» 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.

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
