Reviews for the HP Omen X 2S 15-dg0075cl
Like Asus, HP is convinced that two screens is better than one. While the second screen on the Omen X 2S 15 is definitely crisper than what the Asus VivoBook S15 has to offer, be prepared for a lot of glare and potential brightness issues.

The HP Omen X 2S is a powerful gaming laptop and has few equals when it comes to performance. However, unless you have a burning desire for a mildly useful second screen, you are paying a premium.

Whether the second screen is worth having will really depend on how you see yourself using it. But that certainly shouldn't be the only reason to eye-up this laptop. Overall, the Omen X 2S appears to be a well-rounded packaging and a gaming powerhouse.

Model: What I feared to happen is becoming a reality. Laptops with dual screens. At first, the layout of the base unit started to change with Acer models. Then, we saw Asus to come up with a small screen instead of a touchpad. Then, I was hoping this trend to die, but Asus took it one step further and came back with Zenbook Duo models which have two screens. One is the regular one and the other is with a strange resolution above the keyboard.
I am not gonna lie, I was hoping no one else would pick this up. But HP… They are quick to pick an untested trend. At least unlike Asus, they first want to experiment with something small. Something similar to earlier Asus Zenbook Duo models.
With early Duo models, the second screen was thought to be a kind of replacement for the touchpad. As the Zenbook series are mostly targeted at business users, the device had to stay compact. With the Omen X 2S models, there is also a touchpad, with an odd placement.
As you might easily understand, I am not a big fan of dual screens; especially in gaming laptops. Maybe for business devices, it makes a little sense due to productivity. With gaming devices, all I can see is that maybe you can follow your conversations from the screen above the keyboard. Let’s say you are a streamer and you want to follow your chat, there you go, now you have a second screen. Even though, most of the streamers have multiple screens, maybe this can happen, I don’t know.
One thing is for sure, this addition increases the overall pricing of the devices. The Omen X 2S models are between 2.000 to 4.000 USD. On average, I can say the extra screen is adding up about 500 USD. Is it worth the 500 USD? Well, that will be your decision.
Other than that, the Omen X 2S is a future proof model with latest hardware and connection possibilities. This 15-inch model is weighing around 2.4 kg without the charger, so it can be considered mobile. But, the RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics card consumes power, which means you will need to be connected to an outlet while gaming.
For me the question is, which one is more valuable. Having a second external screen or something that is only 6 inch and built-in? The decision is yours. The future might be for dual monitored laptops. But we are still in the early phases. Therefore it might be better to wait a bit longer for maturity of those kind of devices.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.
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.
i7-9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
