No matter the brand it’s always exciting to see shiny, new, gaming things. The fact that HP is unveiling its new and improved OMEN machine ahead of Rush in a couple of weeks is just a bonus really.

Well worth the wait

You might be familiar with the existing 15″ OMEN on the market. An Intel Core i7 2.8GHz with 16GB SDRAM and a 4GB GDDR NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. The new and improved machine will only be available in the country towards the end of the year but by all accounts it’s going to be well worth the wait! With upgraded graphics and speed as well as a brand spanking new visual redesign the new OMEN is by all accounts a high end machine!


It also has a minimal emphasis on HP and an increased emphasis on OMEN as a brand, with little visible HP branding overall. HP continues their partnership with Bang & Olufsen with amazing built in sound.

Of course if you’re looking for a bigger, less portable option there is still the 17 inch version but the increased screen size, increased processing power and additional cooling system required to make sure it doesn’t overheat comes at a price – HP has admitted it will be significantly heavier than its 15″ counterpart. If you’re not too concerned about portability then of course this might still be an option.

There’s also a range of accessories including headphones, an OMEN backpack and gaming mouse to complement your OMEN.

Look out for the new OMEN in SA later on in 2017, hopefully around September/October.
