Just found this voucher that gives 12% off hp omen laptops: CQ318AF55

I've been looking at laptops for the past month or so. Considered the MSI GS65, Asus Zephyrus M and the Gigabyte Aero 15X. All three laptops weigh between 1.8 and 2.2 KG and priced between 1,700 and 2,000 GBP (oh by the way, these are the GTX 1060 models). Last night i came across this HP Omen, it weighs 2.52 KG but has a better graphics card and for less money.
You can purchase this laptop from the hp store store.hp.com/ for 1,600 GBP, but with myunidays.com you can get it for 1,399 GBP and save 200 pounds. I haven't purchased it yet, but will most probably do.

They look far better in real life than on pictures imho.
Decent price for the new processer and 1070 card. Nice amount of RAM at a slightly higher speed and decent sized SSD. I agree it does look fugly in the pics though!
Pay £100 extra and you can get AlIenware 17 R4 - GTX 1080 with i7-7820HK . But it’s pretty heavy

Bear in mind that the Max-Q is a slightly hobbled version of the 1070, making the Alienware 1080 even more attractive.

The Alienware R4 is a 17 inch laptop while this one is 15.6. It's true that the Alienware has a GTX 1080 but it also has less ram 8GB (unless you add at least an extra 125 for the 16GB ram) and an inferior processor i7-7820HK vs i7-8750H.

8GB is plenty, but £125 for an extra 8 is ludicrous, just buy your own and upgrade. CPU although on paper inferior is still an absolute monster and more than any game will need in the next 5 years. Let's face it, it's the GPU people are interested in when buying a laptop of this caliber.

A better GPU but on the expense of portability. I don't think everyone would want this.
Excuse my surprise but I had a different concept of what students may want when every penny costs a lot more by the time you have finished paying off the student grant.

Surely they want something to do the research, type up the assignments and not cause too much distress if stolen? Like a good secondhand business machine giving you an extra grand to spend on the really serious and essentially studenty stuff of booze, sex and rock'n'roll ...

Students need a computer capable of gaming (if they enjoy gaming that is), because they're not going to lug a desktop between their parents house on the weekends and their uni house during the week. Also, laptops getting stolen? I had a car at University that didn't lock and a laptop I often left in the library unattended whilst I went and got food. This was for 3 years solid in central Birmingham.

Also, gamers like to take their laptops to their friends houses and have LAN parties, yay how fun.

How would fortnite run on this?


A potato can run Fortnite.
I would go for Asus over HP every time but all the HP laptops I've used have been well made and long lasting. It's just the design and some matterials used that let them down.
Got this laptop 2 days ago, a quick overview:

-Build quality in general is quite good though screen can flex quite easily. Keyboard deck is solid with no flex
-The screen is really nice and without any tools to confirm I'd say it get close to 300 nits. It a LGD05C0 panel and from what I gather this is the same panel used in the new Aero 15X. It supports G-Sync, and does not have switchable graphics. I have a little bit of light bleed on the bottom 2 corners.
-Keyboard has 3 main RGB zones with a separate ligting zone for WASD. So far I can only get it to be on or off and it doesn't get too bright. Key have decent travel and feedback. Ever so slightly mushy in my opinion but fine for gaming.
-Speakers are okay. There is a sound control app which helps. Acceptable for watching youtube, a little flat.
-Temps are weird. Often the CPU can reach 89C before the fans kick in on high and then when the temps drop the fan ramp down again. Seems to favour noise above temps. GPU sits around 65/70C when gaming so not too bad. The top of the keyboard deck get quite hot. WASD keys are warm but not uncomfortable.
-GTX 1070 Max-Q along with the G-sync make for a very smooth gaming experience. Witcher 3 sits just below 60fps but with G-Sync looks perfectly smooth.Get around 120fps on high on Fortnite.
-Battery life is a bit poor and I'm quite disappointed. G-Sync laptops are never going to have long battery life, the most I can get even on the max power saving is about 2.5 hrs with screen around 60-70%. Fast charges 50% of battery in 50 mins.

I went for it as it was the cheapest laptop I could find in the UK with 8th gen I7, 1070 Max-q and G-sync. The SD card slot was a bonus for me too as I use it a lot. Not sure if I'll keep it yet but will test over the weekend. Any questions are welcome.

I'm getting around 120fps on High and about 80fps on Epic. Dropping to medium you can hit the 144hz of this screen.
Just a heads up these new 8TH gen mobile CPU’s are prone to thermal throttling, they get very hot!

Another 8GB RAM isn’t £125. I’d take the GTX 1080 over a 1070 any day, not only that, it’s a Max-Q 1070 so it’s power and thermally limited for the sake of thinness. The Alienware is the better buy all round and the chassis is much better built. It also has a lot more gaming heritage if that’s important to you.

i dont think a gaming heritage means too much really if its a good laptop its a good laptop even without a gaming heritage

I don't use them to play games so I would nit buy that type, most are designed for head bangers & must beat price limitations from what I've seen. For me a computer is a tool nothing more. My laptop needs to be able to cope to being on 16 hours a day and not overheat or fall apart when I close the lid.

It is for 125 on dells website if u choose to modify the R4. The omen is much lighter and thus easier to carry around. Anyways, I'll be receiving the laptop today.. maybe I'll post a review by tomorrow if i get the time.

No one buys direct from the manufacturer or shouldn’t. Especially as Dell lets you upgrade without warranty penalty.

Of course the HP is lighter, it’s a much slower GPU and the Max-Q version for thin and light machines, the Dell is for outright performance. I think for vast majority of gamers it’s about performance over portability. I’m sure it’ll be perfectly fine for what you want but it’s too much moneywith too many compromises at this price.
Got one of these 3 days ago the specs are unreal for the price,except this thing runs hot as balls.. ive seen the cpu hit 90 degrees while playing shogun 2.. want my laptop to last 3-4 years, with those temps no chance.. mines going back.. gutted..
