After a long wait and being unconvinced by other laptops in this price range, I pulled the trigger on HP omen within a few hours of its launch. As a professional, I need a low-key, sleek and elegant looking laptop which packs a punch under the hood. The black metal finish is suave and the small things like magnetic lid close make the laptop feel premium.
After about a month of use, this insane combo of Ryzen 7 and 1660Ti simply blew my mind away. Even after running the cpu cores on 100% for 3 hours straight, there was no thermal throttling with temperatures stable at around 88’C. I don’t really play many AAA titles, just DoTA and PES and its a breeze at max specs on both counts. the 72 WHr battery packs good juice.
There are 2 issues i face however. I find the tactile feedback from the keyboard to be a bit weak. this is not a huge problem but something that I prefer. Running Linux on this laptop is slightly an issue since updated kernels aren’t always available/stable.
