Just like most laptops, the HP Omen 15 is equipped with backlit keys allowing you to play in the dark. What’s more, you can also assign different colors to the keys for customization.

The memory is a 12GB DDR4 SDRAM. You can actually upgrade it via two memory slots that are easily accessible. The hard drive, meanwhile, is a 1-terabyte SATA HDD with 7200 RPM.

You can play heavy games such as the PUBG, Overwatch, Fortnite, Asphalt 9, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey without any issues.

But no matter how impressive the specs are, gamers still want to know the battery life. The HP Omen 15 gaming notebook boasts of up to 11 hours of mixed usage. When you are viewing videos, the battery will last up to 7 hours. Wireless streaming, meanwhile, will last you about 5 hours or so.

The laptop is also equipped with new fan design. HP has installed larger blades with a three-phase motor. There’s also a fluid dynamic bearing, which quickly dissipates the heat. Now, you don’t have to worry about the laptop heating up or crashing despite heaving gaming.
