  • HP Design talked to gamers. What we learned is that bigger screens and desktop class GPUs matter when playing, but so do keyboard controls. Gamers like to be able to identify the keys

  • The hinges for the display are elevated above the keyboard deck so that the entire back of the machine has free flowing thermal exhaust. The feet are wide prisms, keeping the thermal inlet clear, preventing recirculating hot air from the back of the computer into the inlet vent on the bottom the computer. The bottom enclosure has a single panel access door to upgrade memory and storage components. The keyboard deck and sideband are aluminum, with laser drilled speaker grille, and the trackpad has been inset with a CNC chamfer at its edge.

  • Sustainability is important to HP. The HP OMEN 17 notebook is designed to provide years of high performance computing, and be easily upgraded by the user to increase the notebook's useful life. The keyboard palmrest is recycled aluminum finished in water-borne paint. The HP OMEN 17 will make a positive impact on HP's gaming business performance. The OMEN brand exists to bring the performance and design language gamers desire at an affordable price point. Making the computer user-upgradable, equipping it with desktop-class graphics performance, and using CNC-machined, laser-drilled surfaces on the enclosure will have a positive impact on sales.

  • The hinges and screen are raised so that they are above the keyboard. The exhaust heat can then flow out unhindered at the back of the laptop. The feet extend across the entire width in order to prevent this hot air at the back of the laptop from re-entering along the bottom surface. HP OMEN is equipped with dual microphones, a privacy webcam. The display hinge is a new innovation for this laptop, and due to the concealed placement of the hinges and the way that the display pivots on them gives the user what we call the "floating display" that floats above the keyboard deck. The keyboard has individual key RGB backlighting, and OMEN Tempest Cooling technology, which includes the large open intake surface on the bottom cover. Gamers like the ability to upgrade their machine and personalize it. HP has equipped the OMEN with a single access door for RAM and fast storage upgrades. HP OMEN has network boost technology, routing the game data over the fastest network connection, usually wired, and making all other traffic take the slower route, usually Wi-Fi. With Wi-Fi 6, even the slowest route isn't slow.
