It feels redundant with how many gaming laptops we have reviewed lately, but it is also apparent this segment of the laptop market continues to grow.
The reason for this? The fact that big desktop units are no longer required for a good gaming experience and more consumers are making the shift to laptops.
Below we will review the HP OMEN 15-dc1044na and go over some of its benefits and downsides.
HP OMEN 15-dc1044na 15.6 Inch FHD Laptop Specifications
- Processor: Intel Core i7
- Memory: 16 GB of RAM
- Storage: 512 GB SSD
- Screen: 15.6 Inches
- OS: Windows 10
- If you want performance, you need a good processor and memory combination, and this model has you covered in this category. The Intel Core i7 can keep up with any processor on the market and, along with 16 GB of memory, can handle just about any task as well.
- SSD drives are easily the superior choice for storage on laptops, but sometimes they lack storage space. Luckily on this model, by going with the larger 512 GB, you have covered not only performance but also storage capacity.
- With processing power and memory, graphics are also critical specs in any gaming laptop. This model includes 6 GB of dedicated graphics memory, which should play just about all modern games easily and in high settings.
- Gaming laptops tend to suffer from low battery life due to all the high end and power-draining hardware. The 6 hours of battery life that this model cannot stack up well against an average laptop, but in gaming, the laptop category is quite good.
- It is a little on the bulky side as it weighs over 2 KG, so it isn’t the most mobile-friendly laptop option available
- The price will scare away those who are looking for a deal; like most gaming laptops, you need to be willing to pay to get all the top end features it includes
- It lacks touchscreen technology which is something many users love in their new laptop models
The HP OMEN 15-dc1044na has a great combination of hardware to give you a great gaming experience along with plenty of power for the business professional as well.
If gaming and energy are what you are after, this model should be seriously considered.
