DESIGN
The HP Omen 17 comes with an HP laptop, Avant-garde design, Powerful overall and excellent graphics Performance, Fast transfer speeds, vivid display and Upgradable. Now this is a good Omen. HP’s latest entry in its Omen line of laptops gives the 17-inch gaming machine a drastic, yet welcome redesign. Instead of playing it safe, the HP Omen 17 sports a daring look that’s sure to turn heads. And the shock and awe doesn’t stop there, as the company has added Nvidia’s powerful GTX 1070 GPU and paired it with an equally robust Intel Core i7 processor and a crazy-fast SSD. The result is laptop capable of delivering show stopping performance whether you’re playing games or crunching numbers.
After several iterations of Omens with handsome but safe designs and mid-level specs, HP is throwing caution to the wind. The $1,899 HP Omen 17 boasts an avant-garde design that’s a definite conversation starter. But beyond the new look lies a vivid 4K display, blistering-fast SSD, Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GTX 1070 GPU, making this a bona fide gaming and multitasking powerhouse. If you’re hankering for even more power, an Nvidia G-Sync display and a little more battery life, you’ll want to check out the $2,229 Lenovo Legion Y920. But if you’re looking for a powerful gaming laptop that’s relatively affordable with no shortage of panache, the HP Omen 17 is a great choice. The glossy fire-engine-red Voodoo logo gleams in the top- center panel accentuated by the four blood-red matte darts forming an X at the center of the lid. The lid then angles down gently with the center portion seamlessly transitioning into the hinge, with Omen stamped along the center.
The HP Omen 17’s interior panel is made of black brushed aluminum and a large keyboard with its red-lined keys is inset into a shallow depression in the deck. The power button, shaped like a glossy parallelogram, sits in the top left corner, leaving the bright-red Omen in the center and branding for Bang & Olufsen on the right. Below the keyboard is the silver chrome-lined touchpad. My favorite part of the interior is the small Voodoo emblem positioned along the bottom-center bezel. It holds your gaze as if it were casting a spell. It weighs 8.2 pounds, and measures 16.7 x 12 x 1.3-inch Omen 17 is in the middle of the pack.
 
 
DISPLAY
The HP Omen 17 comes with 3840 x 2160 matte 17.3-inch displays. The Omen’s panel produces 176 percent of the sRGB gamut. That means it’s more vivid than the desktop-replacement average of 130 percent.
 
 
AUDIO
The HP Omen 17 comes with some bottom-mounted speakers. Located on the bottom-front edge of the laptop, the pair of Bang & Olufsen-tuned speakers easily filled the test lab with loud, clear audio.
 
 
KEYBOARD AND TOUCHPAD
The Omen 17 serves up a 1.5-millimeter key travel and 68 grams of actuation force that makes for a comfortable typing experience. And the keys have backlight that would help for vision in dark places. The HP Omen has a 4 x 2.2-inch Touchpad with a pair of discrete mouse buttons.
 
GAMING, GRAPHICS AND VR
HP’s pulling out the big guns with the Omen’s Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU with 8GB of VRAM. That means this notebook is more than capable of the delivering the high performance gamers expect from premium gaming desktops, and it supports virtual-reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
As proof of its commitment to better graphics and overall performance, HP preinstalled its Omen Command Center software on the laptop. Similar to other higher-end gaming laptops, the software lets you check the CPU and GPU temperature. However, it lacks an over clocking tab so you can squeeze every drop of performance out of that GTX 1070. The software also allows you create custom macros and set network priority so your games have access to the fastest internet bandwidth.
 
PERFORMANCE
 The Omen 17 spots with a 2.8-GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 32GB of RAM. While neither is
Over lockable, together they make quite the multitasking and multiprocessing. I streamed an episode of BoJack Horseman on Netflix, with 30 additional Google Chrome tabs open running a myriad of messaging and social media apps with a few Twitch streams.
 
BATTERY LIFE
The device lasts for a duration of 2 hours and 18 minutes which is quiet poor for a great device as such.
WEBCAM
The 1920 x 1080 integrated camera on the Omen 17 is a nice camera for webcam.
