Reviews for the HP Omen
Black, stylish, fast. HP launches a very compact and thin 15.6-inch gaming notebook with the Omen, which has a very good design and attracts gamers with powerful core components. The price of 1,600 Euros (~$1793) comes with high expectations for the ergonomics and the performance, but not all of them can be fulfilled.

HP might market this as a gaming machine, and it’s great for those of you who want a mobile gaming laptop rather than a custom built desktop PC, but as with many of the gaming notebooks that we’ve seen over the years, we think that it should also tickle the fancy of anyone who just wants a powerful luxury notebook.
