HP Omen 15-ce011na Review

The all new HP Omen 15-ce011na is marketed as a gaming laptop but priced like a typical mid-range option, so which is it? At first glance it looks to have some of the must haves for a gaming laptop such as a dedicated graphics card along with a keyboard which is designed for gaming but for this price we probably cannot expect the same type of performance we would get out of a much more expensive option. Below we are going to review this laptop a bit closer and see just how well it stacks up to other gaming options available.

Specs

Processor: Intel Core i7

Memory: 8 GB of RAM

Storage: 1 TB SATA

Screen: 15.6 Inches

OS: Windows 10

Benefits

– HP has not disappointed with the processing power in this laptop as they have chosen the powerful Intel Core i7 which is one of the best processors available
– You will find plenty of storage space on this model due to its large 1 TB SATA drive
– Portability is not something that is easily found in the gaming market but this laptop weighs a very light 2.62 Kg making it easy to take on the go
– Talking about on the go use the battery life is also impressive with up to 12.3 hours on a single charge possible with this model
– A dedicated graphics card with 2 GB of memory helps handle most games quite well even on higher settings
– The HP Audio Boost technology helps give you better sound quality than you would typical expect from a laptop

Downsides

– The amount of memory in the system at just 8 GB is disappointing and equal with what you find in many cheaper laptop models
– The lack of an SSD drive also limits performance
– For gamers that like a big screen experience the standard 15.6 inch display size may not be up to their expectations compared to a larger 17 inch model
– While the graphics card is decent it falls behind what you will find in most of the more expensive gaming options.

Verdict

The HP Omen 15-ce011na doesn’t provide the same type of specifications you will find in many of the other gaming options available but it also lacks the huge price tag that you will in these other models. For those looking for a an option that is more affordable but still very capable of delivering a good experience this Omen model might be the perfect choice.
