Asus, MSI, Razer, PCSpecialist and many others have ultra high-end gaming notebooks on the market right now, but soon they’ll have an extra competitor in the form of the HP Omen. HP dropped out of the gaming market years ago, but their new notebook marks a shift in the companies goals.

The Omen is a 15.6″ laptop with an Intel Core i7 CPU, GeForce 860M graphics, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SDD and a 1920 x 1080 display. Nothing overly fancy or innovative there, but it’s certainly going to pack enough performance punch to run high-end PC games.

It’s milled from a solid piece of aluminium, with tapered edges and a speaker grill down each side. The keyboard features red LED backlighting and six programmable function keys. The whole unit is just 20mm thick and weighs 4.68 pounds (2.1kg).

The Omen will be available from the 4th of November online and in retail stores a few weeks afterwards. Prices are expected to be $1,499 for the base model. It certainly looks gorgeous, but we’ll wait and see how it performs in benchmarks.
