DESIGN
The HP Omen 15  is designed with Good looks, Bright, with  colorful display and Booming sound. The HP Omen 15 is a good-looking gaming notebook with a vibrant display and powerful sound for immersive play sessions.
The gaming Notebook has been redesigned with an eye-catching chassis, responsive Keyboard, and an easy-to-remove panel to upgrade the hard- disk drive, solid-state drive and RAM. Add in a bright, vibrant display and some nice, loud speakers, and you have a gaming notebook that will enthrall you. The only downsides  are the short battery life and a few plasticky areas of the chassis.
The lid is black, with four red lines forming an “X.” That X divides the lid into quadrants: two covered in carbon fiber and two in plastic made to look like brushed aluminum. The carbon fiber looks and feels premium and unexpected.  It comes with a  15.6-inch 4K display , surrounded by a thick bezel with the Omen logo. (The word “Omen” is spelled out again on the deck.) There’s a full island-style keyboard with a number pad. The WASD keys are in bright red, while the rest are black with red sides and letters.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a lighter 5.5 pounds but it is 1.5 inches thick; the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming is heavier, at 5.8 pounds, but it is also 1 inch thick; and the Razer Blade is the smallest all-around, at 4.2 pounds and 0.7 inches thick.
On the left side of the machine are a Kensington Lock slot , a Mini DisplayPort, HDMI output, an Ethernet jack, a USB 3.0 port, a Thunderbolt 3 portand headset and mic jacks. The right side of the notebook sports an SD card slot and another pair of USB 3.0 ports.
