80% of people in the United States agree that playing video games provides an escape during these unprecedented times and 73% cite "relaxation" as one reason they game. The lighting can be customized via Omen Command Center, HP's preinstalled software. The newest OMEN line-up brings together an ecosystem of hardware and software to help today's gamers feel connected and entertained.

The new Omen 15 model comes in a redesigned chassis that has a smaller footprint than the previous generation. Keep in mind, you'll have to spend a lot more than the $1,000 starting price if you want an RTX 2070.

From Intel, the HP Omen 15 gets the option to be equipped with Intel's Core 15-10300H to Core i7-10750H chips. Paired with the processor is up to 32GB DDR4 memory, and a 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD. HP is giving gamers both with the 15.6-inch display the Omen 15 ships with. This tech is enhanced by the enlarged triple side vent openings and up to a 12V fan. Furthermore, it is said to be able to offer up to 12.5hrs battery life. But for now, there's no word on when the company will be making the laptop available on our shores.

The main differences between the Vector and the less expensive Vector Essential are the Vector comes with a higher 16,000 DPI sensor and support for adjustable weights.

As gaming continues to grow at record numbers, with more than 1 billion gamers worldwide and well over half of that number representing mainstream gamers, the HP Pavilion Gaming Portfolio is created to power both work and play, including gaming, video editing, or content creation.

The Pavilion Gaming 16 you see here, meanwhile, is HP's first 16-inch gaming laptop. There are multiple screen options, including an OLED, UHD 120 Hz, or FHD 300 Hz display. There is also a Wi-Fi 6 connectivity option.

The HP X24c Gaming Monitor features a stunning 1500R curvature - the most curved ever from HP- that pulls the corners of the display closer to you.

The HP Omen 15 (2020) price starts at $999.99 (roughly ₹ 75,300). In general, though, the Omen 15 is competitively priced for the most part.

So between the Omen 15 and all its accessories, HP has basically done a top to bottom overhaul of its gaming laptop portfolio. It's a bit of an oddball size, though according to HP, it's similar to a 15-inch laptop because it uses "micro-edge bezels". The Pavilion Gaming 16 will ship sometime late in June for an easier to swallow $800.
