For some bigger real is better and when it comes to laptops there isn’t anything bigger than a 17.3 inch display and even though these laptops are less mobile friendly they still give you a way of being much more mobile than a desktop PC while still having a large display to give you the best viewing experience while on the move. One of the latest 17.3 inch models to become available is the HP Omen 17-an014na and below we will be reviewing some of the benefits and downsides to this model to see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA plus 128 GB SSD
Screen: 17.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– It is hard to beat the viewing experience you will get a large display and the 17.3 inch screen on this model delivers great picture quality
– The powerful Intel Core i7 runs this device and provides some of the best processing power you can get in a consumer grade laptop
– No matter if you want the performance benefits of an SSD or large storage space of a SATA HP has you covered since both are included in this device
– Most modern games come with intensive graphics which put a high demand on your graphics card and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 card with 8 GB of dedicated memory is built to easily handle this
– No surprise this laptop is very heavy, at 3.8 Kg it is as much as twice the weight of a standard 15.6 inch model making on the go use a bit difficult
– HP has packed high end hardware into most areas of this laptop but surprisingly went light on the memory by only including 8 GB, This might cause some performance issues when playing high end games or running very demanding applications
For those that want the big screen experience the added weight of the HP Omen 17-an014na will just be something they have to live with as it is impossible to get both a large screen and lightweight all into one device and the other perks on this laptop make it for many a well worthwhile tradeoff.
