Looks like a good price for a 1050ti laptop, everything else looks good too.

Slight possibility you might need more RAM but I doubt it.

Showing as 949.99 but the code BANK100 takes £100 off.

One of the cheapest 1050ti laptops I've seen.

Apparently you get Halo wars 2 free too!

Personally saving for a 1080ti...

Perhaps a mod can edit to add an image!

The way that you've worded the title, it could be misinterpreted as saying that there's 4GB of system RAM, when this is in fact the dedicated VRAM. System RAM is 8GB here. I'd also suggest including the 1TB HDD in the title.

I'd say that this is a decent option, but you could probably do a little better for the price - in particular, a GTX 1060 ought to be achievable for about this price.

Not awful, but not for serious gamers either.

I'd say the 1050ti is incredible value for money considering the specs of the laptop. It can easily play most games at high settings with 60fps+. However, the screen on the Omens are absolute rubbish

Nope.

You keep asking this. The answer is always the same, a 1050Ti isn't enough. For a good experience you need at least a 1060, even then it's not really enough.

Got my hopes up there... This appears to be the 2gb 1050 not the 4gb 1050ti as per the deal
It's not 1995... lol... Who wants a DVD drive in a gaming laptop.... :-)

A lack of blu ray drive may have been a criticism, not dvd!
Currently Out of Stock

It's an older model, so unlikely to come back in stock.....if you can find it elsewhere it might be worth picking up. The new version is this one: store.hp.com/UKS…NTB

It is £250 more for an identical spec!!

Not at all, the 1060 3gb Maxq is still a good bit faster than a 1050ti mobile.

Actually, you're right. Must have got it confused with something else.

The screen is ips so why is it so bad?
You can get Dell Inspirion 7000 with 1050ti for even less.
I compared HP Omen and Dell side by side and Dell is nicer, has better ventilation, longer battery life and you can get 4 year warranty if you want.
We bought the Dell for $699+sales tax in the US = £617 Probably not worth flying over just for that one item, but shouldn't be much more in the UK...

The Dell has just about the worst screen fitted to a gaming laptop I have seen. The UK only get a TN screen for the 1080 model....

Yes, the 1050ti is enough for oculus (but not vive). According to the oculus website the 1050ti is the minimum for vr. I've seen some good YouTube videos where people using the the 1050ti using the oculus.

There's a difference between running it and having a good experience. Lower frame rates and stutters will cause nausea, the poor visuals because you've had to turn the graphical settings down will be jarring. Look at how crap PSVR is for an example.

You won't be running AAA titles in VR on this machine, even if you can now within a year or so it'll be a case of throwing it away and getting a new one, since it's a laptop with a non-upgradable GPU.

If you want to do VR on a budget, a laptop is completely the wrong choice, build a mITX gaming rig.

Yes, I agree it won't achieve the performance as 1060/1070/1080, but it does Meet the minimum specs and seems to run good/enjoyable by those who own this card and oculus.

Edit: from the videos I've seen anyway

1) The guy asked about VR systems
2) Oh yeah, let me just take a 15.6 inch, 2.62 kg "laptop" to school and plonk that down on a tiny desk or struggle to use it on my lap.

Hence the line:
