    Last time around I bought an Omen desktop and was positively surprised. I always built my own and didn't think HP had it in them, but I couldn't be bothered to fumble around myself this time. And yes, they really hit it. I'm pretty sure this laptop won't be any different.

    What I dislike, though is the design. For some reason every gaming laptop manufacturer seems to think only 12yr-olds buy their products. :rolleyes:

    Buying anything like this at this moment when intel is pushing multi thread to a new height with version 8 is not wise. You pay the same money for less power.
