Like the 17-inch 4K screen, which you can swap out for a 140 Hz 1080p screen, both of which support NVIDIA's G-SYNC anti-tearing tech.

The HP Omen X laptop offers plenty of lighting.

The company has recently announced its latest gaming laptop in the form of the HP Omen X. All that space is for good reason: the Omen X trades svelte for substance as it features a bunch of perks typically only seen in stationary gaming PCs.

Let us know what you think about the new HP Omen X flagship gaming laptop and whether or not you are interested in buying one of these new laptops. The laptop can also be connected to external displays.

So what's included? In terms of raw specs, the Omen X Laptop goes straight to the high-end by offering unlocked Intel seventh-generation Core i7 CPU options, memory that can be overclocked, and up to a factory-overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics chip. "With the release of the OMEN X Laptop, HP is bringing key innovations to performance, industrial design and customizability that were once only possible on a desktop, to give gamers a competitive edge", he said. All of the regular features of the Command Center still stand, including network controls to reduce gaming latency, but the additional overclocking segment shows you how your device is performing and what you can do to change that. The RGB LEDs can be customized on a per-key basis, and there are customizable maps for the buttons. Its mechanical keyboard offers 2.5mm of travel, which will feel most similar to Cherry MX blue switches with their tactile and clicky feel.

HP says that the laptop will go on sale in November at $2,299 in the US. An access panel in the bottom of the rig allows these and the RAM to be easily upgraded as needed. You also can find a variety of ports, including: three USB 3.0 Type A, two Thunderbolt 3-certified USB 3.1 Type C, HDMI 2.0a with HDR support, Mini DisplayPort, RJ45 and a multi-format media card reader. However, keep in mind that this little convenience of upgrading components might cost you a pretty penny, but if you desire to have powerful components stacked in a mobile and portable gaming machine, then there should be no reason for you to complain.
