I do think that it’s a beast of a machine, but unlike the Hummer, I don't think it's ridiculous enough to be spectacular.

The HP Omen X costs a huge premium in India, compared to what it’s retailing for in the US. This very same configuration costs roughly $3,490 (plus taxes), which translates to about Rs. 2,40,000. However in India, you’ll be paying Rs. 3,26,391, which is a big jump. In terms of competition, the Dell Alienware 17 is one of the few 17-inch laptops that comes to mind, with similar core features for around the same price. If you can live without the mechanical keyboard, then the Dell will get you a higher resolution G-Sync display (Quad-HD) along with a decently high 120Hz refresh rate and the company also recently refreshed its gaming line with 8th generation Intel CPUs.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Mobile: Pascal based laptop graphics card using GDDR5 graphics memory. Should offer a similar performance to the deskto GTX 1080. However, there is also a more power efficient "Max-Q" version that performs worse than the normal GTX1080 and is used in thin and light laptops.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.
A laptop in this weight range is a heavyweight that you rarely carry around. This is meant for desktops and the devices tend to score with a large display and high performance and replace desktop devices.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
