With PC gaming being one of the most popular hobbies of this day and age (due to us having to stay at home all the time), the gaming machine space has been growing increasingly competitive. Latest to enter the fry, is HP with new versions of their Omen and Pavilion Gaming laptops. With specs that should easily let you blow through the latest games requirements, you could say that they are an omen – of good times to come!
First up is the brand new Omen 15 – featuring a redesigned chassis with a smaller footprint and minimalist aesthetics (death to gamer aesthetics!), it features a GeForce RTX 2070 Super with MAX-Q Design, is powered by 10th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 H-series processors, packs an FHD 300Hz display, and ensures it stays at reasonable temperatures thanks to OMEN Tempest Cooling Technology. While we’re not sticklers for specs over here at eGG – just know that it’s going to have no problems running whatever you throw at it. Its best feature – expansion capabilities. Say, if you don’t feel like splurging on upgrades from the get-go, the Omen 15 will allow you to open it up to customize the hardware inside so you can make it a beastlier machine at a later date!
Next up we have the Pavilion Gaming 15 – a laptop that’s designed with entry-level gamers in mind (people dipping their toes into the hobby and don’t want to spend as much as an enthusiast). While it only has a GeForce GTX 1660TI, it still has a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and an FHD 144Hz display, so it’s no slouch in that department either. If you’re not gaming on it, it also serves as a perfectly capable work machine.
Both laptops, and HP’s new accessories – the Omen 27i Gaming Monitor, HP Citadel Gaming Chair, Omen Vector Mouse and Omen Blast Headset are all available now from HP’s Online Store.
