See What HP Is Offering Their Consumers

HP last week introduced several new additions to its Omen by HP gaming hardware line: 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch laptops, a desktop PC and a 32-inch Quad HD4 display.

The laptops will be available next month at HP’s website and at Best Buy stores, with a starting price of US$900; the desktop and display will be available in August at HP online and at select retailers, yet with undisclosed price.

The notebooks “address the gamer who wants … a gaming machine without breaking the bank,” said Mike Nash, VP of portfolio strategy and customer experience at HP.

Gaming hardware sales fell more than $41 million year over year in April, according to NPD, which raises the question of whether HP’s Omen line can make any headway in the market.

“When we look at the PC gaming market, we are extremely excited about the possibilities,” Nash told TechNewsWorld. “Things like DirectX 12 and new graphics cards, which we believe will spur the gaming hardware market forward, are in the process of being launched by our partners.”

What the Omen Line Offers

The laptops have a flat 62W battery positioned towards the front, Nvidia GTX graphics cards up to 965M, two fans, and up to 6th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processors.

The laptops have up to 16 GB of memory and a PCI3 SSD of up to 512 GB and up to 2 TB of storage for single storage options. Select models that offer a dual storage option come with a 128-GB SSHD and up to 4 TB of storage.

They are made with Wide Vision HD cameras. Intel RealSense Cameras, which offer 3D experiences and enable gesture control, are an option.

The most amazing story about these new HP devices is they charge faster and up to 10 hours of battery life.
