There top-tier gaming machine, the OMEN by HP, gives you top of the line performance, at an equally high price. Almost double the amount of the HP Pavilion and ASUS models, it doesn’t give you twice the performance, but it will play the latest games at much higher settings. If you are crazy about speed and smoothness, this is an option to consider.
We still believe this sneaks in as affordable at $1,249 because many gaming laptops can be double this price. While not cheap, we’ve listed lower priced alternatives above, but for many, this is within their budget and could give them a better experience.
For this extra expense, you get yourself a 6-core, i7-8750H processor capable of 41.GHz. Perhaps more interestingly, you’ll also get a GeForce GTX 1060, the best GPU on this list by far. It has 6GB of GDDR5 memory, which is going to give you blistering speed and the ability to play on ultra high graphics settings.
As well, you’ll receive 16GB of DDR4 RAM, with space to upgrade and double the amount. Likewise, there is a 1TB HDD and a 126GB SSD. Indeed, you get everything you could want in a gaming laptop. Although it’s possible to get better GPUs and CPUs, you’ll be able to play every game you could want with this machine.
Reviewers noted how despite the expense they found it was good value for money. Given this, we think this would be a good choice for people who want to play new games for years to come, and who can stretch their budget to this price point. For the ultimate gaming experience, without breaking the bank, the OMEN is worth considering.
