This Omen model is marketed as a gaming laptop even though it doesn’t quite match up in specifications with some of the other options available but does offer a price tag that is actually realistic to many potential buyers.

– The hybrid setup of the SSD plus SATA drives make sure you have both high performance and plenty of storage

– A powerful processor is important to best experience gaming or just day to day use and the Intel Core i7 is the top of the line currently available
– HP has done a great job of making this laptop easy to upgrade which is a great way to extend the life of your purchase as hardware requirements increase
– 3 USB ports are available so you have plenty of room for all your important external devices
– A bit big and bulky mainly due to the large display and it tips the scales at 3.8 Kg
– Just average battery life with the max being 6 hours of use on a single charge
– For a laptop that is designed for gaming it is quite surprising they have only included 8 GB of memory
The HP Omen 17-an011na is not the most powerful gaming laptop but still packs a decent enough punch for the average gamer.
