Gaming is predicted to grow to unprecedented levels in the next few years and most of the major computer manufacturers have been releasing their own lines that offer to the needs of the growing population of gamers worldwide.
In response to this emerging market, HP consolidated it's gaming arm into one brand, the OMEN by HP! In October, HP launched their latest computers at the Cyberzone, the Annex, SM city North EDSA where they unveiled several products in the Omen line. Two of the products we had a considerable amount of time to play with were their 15 inch and 17 inch Omen Laptops.
They both looked phenomenal and I was completely surprised that they were able to cram all that power in form factor that is less than inch thick! The laptops are made of sturdy materials with a premium textured feel with brilliant, bright and vivid monitors with great viewing angles. The keyboard keys are a little compact for our taste but the key travel is good with a good tactile feel with every tap. It would be great if we could have more time with the Omen!
The GTX 965M is perfect for playing the Blizzard games like Overwatch. They will also release a GTX 1080 model in March. SO for those who need the bleeding edge of graphics will have to wait.
They also introduced the OMEN X which emphasis on its unique design that lets gamers have the most powerful components with the best cooling system HP has ever made. It is also designed to be modular which makes upgrading a breeze! Several accessories like the OMEN mouse, OMEN gaming headphones and OMEN gaming monitor will also be available with it soon!
In summary, OMEN is off to a great start and we cannot wait to see what it can really do! Stay tuned for more details!
