Alright, my current computer have been around for already quite some time, and the components within are starting to show their age. With christmas (and birthday two days later) coming soon, I would like to start 2019 anew, with a new configuration, even if that mean I’ll have to endure to worst price/performance ratio of gaming laptops.
I looked up a few ones, and I decided to take a deeper look into the HP gaming brand : OMEN (no no, not the cruiser), and they seems quite interesting with decent prices. Since I will certainly not play most recent AAA games at full graphics (mostly Destiny 2, The Witcher 3 and of course : EVE Online, finally being able to enter the Abyss with quality presettings !), I think a GTX 1060 should be enough, will not cost as much as a 1070, 1080 and their Ti versions. Here is the laptop that got my eye : OMEN 15.
The specs are :
Processor : Intel Core i7-8750H (2.2 GHz base, can be pushed to 4.1, 9MB Cache and 6 cores)
Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
Display : 15.6 diagonal 4K IPS anti-glare micro-edge WLED-backlit (3840x2160)
Memory : 16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 16 GB)
Storage : 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA
Secondary storage : 512 GB PCIe
With only three reviews on the HP Store, it’s quite hard to make an idea on the subject, so I thought I’ll ask my fellow capsuleers ! So, what are your opinions, and if it’s bad, what could be a better option ?
Thanks in advance, fly safe !
