HP's Omen 17 gives great graphical grunt for under $2,000Packed with a Nvidia GeForce 1070, the laptop is a few hundred dollars cheaper than comparably powerful machines.
[MUSIC] Hola, this bad boy right here is the HP Omen. It's a 17 inch laptop that can be configured with Nvidia's GeForce 1070. That means if you're a gamer, it's got what you want. That 1070 GPU will play pretty much everything you throw at it. The graphically demanding Rise of the Tomb Raider played at 30 frames per second in 4K, and at a glorious 60 frames per second in full HD. You run games like Overwatch in perfectly smooth 4K. That's if you choose the 4K screen that is. The Omen 17 gives you the option to choose between a 1080p or a 4K screen. I'd personally recommend the 1080p screen, I didn't find the extra resolution to be worth the drop in battery life. You'll pay at least $1,600 for a 1070 equipped Omen. If you're not all about gaming, the base model, with the GeForce 1050 GPU, starts at $1,100, and there are a few options in between. At 6.3 pounds, the Omen isn't exactly light, but it's lighter than many of its 17 inch competitors [MUSIC] It is decently mobile for a desktop replacement, but is still not something you'd take to a cafe or a park to do some work with. There are wider gaming laptops out there, and more powerful ones, too. Few of them cost under $2,000 though. [UNKNOWN] is a great laptop because it strikes a balance between affordability, might, and mobility. Head back to C net for more details and the full written review. [MUSIC]
