First things first. The HP Omen looks phenomenal. Angles, lights—it has pure unique style to it. It does have outdated graphics to go with its eye-catching exterior. But, as a mid-range option, this gaming laptop is enough to provide a casual gamer his/her work and play requirements. Legit gamers will also love this, but maybe not so much just for unbeatably cool looks.
