The HP Omen 17 is a gaming powerhouse of a laptop. You can think of it as a sleeper car that pulls up next to your tricked-out car at a stoplight. When the light turns green, you expect the rusty old sedan to eat your dust but instead, you're shocked to see it blow past ahead of you.
Powered by an excellent Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and priced at about $1800, it is a great deal too. What's more! It comes in several models; is VR ready and falls within a friendly budget range!
In this post I will head deep into the review on HP Omen 17 and show you whether you should purchase it or not.
