Had my eye on this for a while and was waiting for a code I could use towards it. Very decent spec for the money and IMO a better option than the Dells due to the better screen. Only downside for me is lack of upgradability, alsonot sure how loud/hot it will get as seems to be quite slim considering how much they've squeezed in.

Isn't this 12 month old tech/model?

No it's a Pascal series GPU (1050 Ti), good gaming performance for a laptop.

absolutely yes. however if that's all you would be doing with it i'd suggest something way more basic/cheaper

​how is that even possible when the 1050ti was announced in January of 2017? Research pls

Aw I wish the code worked on the Spectre x360

This HP for £479 at John Lewis would perhaps be a better buy. Most of the additional cost is due to the graphics card performance.

Better then xps 15?

Anyone know what the warranty is?

​nah be useless, need about 16bb Ram, 8gb graphics card, and a hexacore 4ghz processor and of course 32bit windows X)

I've been monitoring here and elsewhere for a laptop of about this spec. Am I right in thinking that the latest gen of Nvidia mobile GPU's are a pretty big leap in performance since last gen? What about Intel's 7th gen processors? Is now a good time to buy something like this? Or would I want to wait for any new tech in the pipeline? If it's only small upgrades on the way, I'd be inclined to buy now.

Also, would I be better off going for a 1060 for the graphics? Would that future proof me a bit more?

I watched a review on Mobile Tech Review last week which was comparing the latest laptops - think it was a high-end HP versus the 15 inch Dell XPS. In passing they suggested that there are several types of 1050 cards in top end laptops currently but that some of them are pretty "blah" as they are just basic versions.

There was also a post on here a few weeks back where someone pointed out that now is the wrong time to buy a ne whigh-end laptop as there is a lot of new tech coming out in the Summer. I got the impression that waiting a few months made sense if paying a load of money for a high-end laptop.

The Mobile Tech Review also pointed out that the high-end Dells do not currently come with the latest HDMI standard which is incapable of powering 4K external monitors.

Hope this helps.

what versions other than 1050 and 1050ti?
someone always says wait
Edited by: "brilly" 8th Apr

Good overall system and the price, heat added, however this lacks a usbc/thunderbolt port so wouldn't personally buy this

1.5%Quidco or 2.5% Topcashback as well.

There will always be something new in a few months time, but there aren't any significant breakthroughs due, at least not that anyone knows about.

The 1050ti is a good step up in performance from the old 950/960 that was used in lower end gaming orientated machines, and exceeds the 970m that was used in higher end machines, whilst using less power.

This is a nicely balanced machine, in my opinion, and a decent price based in the spec and extra controller.

I'm the same. Plus these Omens have notoriously bad displays. If you're buying a new laptop in 2017 it really should be a little future proof with USB C.

Edit- They're also getting posted every few days and the only laptops to gain heat. It's a bit fishy to me but I'm sure everything is above board.

"I'm the same. "Plus these Omens have notoriously bad displays."

The latest iterations have very decent IPS displays (don't know about previous version). Good viewing angles nice bright, sharp colours - could be brighter, yes - (you need brightness turned to between 70% - 100% for it to look this good admittedly) but they certainly do not have "bad" displays - I know because I have one :-)

So tempting but the ROG GL502 is the one for me...

The OP's comment about the screen isn't accurate refer to the review on notebookcheck.net. The HP screen is very average as far as IPS's go, yeh obviously good viewing angles etc but that's the case for any IPS!

Also the comparison the OP drew with the Dell/Alienware deals is his initial post and their screens is wrong, they have a much higher Brightness and greater SRGB/Adobe RGB coverage check notebook check as well for their review of the Alienware 15r3

Cheaper Than a Galaxy S8+ (Which is a phone) (Just for fun) Giving some heat !!!!!

"a better option than the Dells due to the better screen"

Not having a laptop/PC at all is a better option to having a Dell X)

what versions other than 1050 and 1050ti? someone always says wait



Yet another better deal here. You only to wait 3 weeks after the other Omen thread! X)

Well I will stay a miles away from HP worst laptop of all time

I've used/owned multiple HP laptops over the yers and never had issues with any of them. Think people blow hp hate of proportion. ALL companies will have poor laptops and laptops that break. That is the nature of electronics, what they do do and will always be that way.

why do you bother repeating the same old crap?
i wouldn't have paid anything for any of these as the screen isn't good enough
you always compare the 'new' deal with a bad 'old' deal
in short you are taking rubbish
if someone wants a deal now then a deal in a week is useless as the rest of your 'help'
the other points i made correcting you.. you just ignored ofc

You sarcastically asked for a better deal than that £900 i5/1050 in response to me saying that there were better deals to be had and that you should be patient!

I posted 3 links to better deals, and this thread has a better deal still!

you posted irrelevant links, failed to find a better deal BUT!!! crossed your fingers that one day laptop prices would drop... wow that is some foresight indeed
anyway as you fail to talk any sense or address any of your other errors i guess you have nothing to add
...so i guess i'll see you trolling in the next thread

Trolling? Weren't you the one that got suspended? X)

PS. Q.E.D. in relation to the better laptop deals ;-)

didsburydan

just to clarify, i thought this was a decent spec for the price. i swear … just to clarify, i thought this was a decent spec for the price. i swear to god, pc fanboys are the worst.


it is a decent spec for the price, more than decent
the screen is what you are going to look at though the whole time is it not?
its not being a fanboy - its being realistic
