    This laptop has exceeded my expectations. Firstly getting it for $699.00 instead of its $899.00 usual price made me pull the trigger. I wanted a thinner laptop that could be used to play games on that still provided a great gaming experience. The 1660 ti with maxq works very well in this laptop. It was easy to get the back off of it and upgrade the memory and put an extra 2tb of storage in it. I spent $160.00 to upgrade those 2 items. A 2tb Seagate 2.5inch drive and 16gb of ddr4 G Skill memory in the form of 2 8gb sticks. Out of the box the memory comes with 2 4gb sticks of ddr4 3200 speed. The i5 processor is more than enough to run this laptop without it sounding like a rocket heading into space. Even when the fan does spin up it isn't super annoying. Hp did a great job managing the Temps in this and it shows to be able to play games at high to ultra settings well since the GPS isn't being tanked by rtx settings. The 144 hz screen was another selling point that made me buy this and it is a buttery smooth experience. It's bright and I haven't had to make any adjustments to get a bright vivid picture. The Intel on-board graphics shares itself with the nvidia gpu so out of game its utilizing the Intel graphics. This means that there is limited adjustments in the nvidia control panel and most if not all if your color enhancements have to be made through the Intel graphics program that's pre-installed. I did HDMI out to an external display that ran at 1440p resolution and to my surprise when I did I was able to have the laptop display this same resolution. When connected to an external display the full functionality of the nvidua control panel is displayed and you can adjust the desktop color settings. I felt it was important to mention this as I thought the nvidia control panel was broken. After doing some searches I discovered that it's just the Intel graphics settings on the laptop override the nvidia ones. Start up is quick with the 512gb ssd that came with this unit. I did not see a protected partition that had the OS recovery on it so I would imagine that you would have to do a recovery online should the need arise. I also do not notice much difference with the 32gb of octane memory but maybe it just needs to learn my habits before it does. The wifi card is not a wifi 6 one but it dioes connect well and maintains a strong signal. I find that the laptop lid must be in the open position to get the best signal. The keyboard is easy to both type and game on. Having 2 USB type 3.1 ports and a USB C port allows for plenty of connectivity. This does have a full size SD card slot and the card does go all the way in so it won't catch when this laptop is stored in a sleeve. It fits in a 15.6 inch sleeve which is really nice and the screen has super thin bezels on the sides. It passes the 1 finger test when opening and doesn't flop when being picked up. The Webcam is 1080p and is at the top bezel providing a great Skype experience. The backlit keyboard is well lit and allows the user to to have 3 brightness modes. Full bright, mid bright, and no brightness. Unfortunately the only drawback and gripe I have is it shuts the backllight off after about 20 seconds and you have to either touch the touch pad or press a key on the keyboard to get it back on. There is no way to set it to stay on for any longer length of time. It also will be green forever. This is fine with me as I just need to see the keys while I am in a dark room and green gives a good glow to them. It is a fully plastic unit so don't expect a metal chassis like the Omens have. It doesn't feel cheap though and to get a 16 inch screen that looks this good and comes with a 144hz refresh rate is pretty sweet. This doesn't have gsync but I haven't had any tearing issues. I have played forza horizon 4, Shadow of the Tombraider, Doom Eternal, and the new Medium game. All of these games have run great on this budget gaming laptop. This was an excellent choice and in my opinion the best option out there at this price point. If you can catch it on discount it's an even better deal. This is my honest opinion and I am not being paid by hp or any one else. This is my experience and my opinion. I am very happy I bought this. It's a well put together machine. I highly reccomend this product to anyone looking for an entry level gaming laptop that isn't going to weigh a ton. The included power brick is enough to run this cpu and gpu without power drain. Just buy it and I guarantee you will be glad you did.

    Happy with the laptop, it's a good machine to start PC gaming with and can handle all my daily activities with it as well. The keyboard is nicely laid out along with a dedicated number pad section. While the green keyboard and logo on the lid are not subtle, it doesn't scream "GAMER" loudly when carrying it around in public compared to other laptops. I've signed up for XBox Game Pass and the imagery of latest 'Ori' and Halo Master Chief Collection games are spectacular on this laptop. When not using it for games, it's super quiet, fans are not coming on. I can't speak to battery life as I normally have it plugged in. I purchased my previous Dell Inspiron 15" laptop 5+ years ago and noticed that the physical size of the two laptops are roughly the same. I have attached pictures of the laptops side by side as well as a 2019 silver 15" Inspiron for comparison. The older Dell and this HP shows how much thinner screen bezels are these days. My only complaints are around RAM - - it only comes with 8GB - 2x4GB - Upgrading to 16GB requires completely replacing the existing memory. - Some discrepancies on maximum amount of memory - HP's site says 16GB - 2x8GB, but yet other current HP pavilion laptops accept up to 32GB - 2x16GB. Reading the Questions/Answers on this page show similar conflicting answers by "HP Team members" and customers. Overall, still a good laptop, especially when it's on sale and seeing it beats out other laptops with similar specs.

    I recently sold my gaming PC and went for this laptop as a means of being more portable with my gaming and streaming and I am absolutely loving this laptop. The specs are perfect for what I do. The processor is clocked a little lower than I would prefer, but the 10th Gen i5 makes easy work of streaming, browsing, gaming, and anything else you'll be using this laptop for. For graphics, the 1660 Ti is a FANTASTIC piece of hardware to have inside of this laptop. Some games you will have to turn down graphical settings to reach the 100+ FPS to take full advantage of the 144hz panel (MW/Warzone being a prime example). However, for other titles like the Master Chief Collection it easily tears past 150 FPS on the original graphics settings. The only downside for this machine would be the amount of RAM it comes with in the box. 8 GB is plenty for older titles, but if you want to have multiple applications and a game open at the same time, you'll need to upgrade. I recently upgraded to 16 GB but have not tried it out in any games as of writing this review. Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend this laptop! It's a fantastic first gaming machine and an even better portable alternative to a gaming desktop.

    Have had the machine for a couple weeks now and have been really loving it. Overall this machine has been great. Note to those looking to expand memory, both the nvme m.2 and the 2.5” are being used and the RAM slots are both filled with 4GB cards. The sata Drive is the main SSR and m.2 Drive is used for the optane. It is probably easiest to upgrade the m.2. All things considered I really like this machine.

    I was on a budget and needed to upgrade fast. Luckily I came across this beast and for the price it is a steal. So far its capable of handling anything I throw at it whether it’s music producing, multitasking or gaming. The battery life isn’t too great. I tend to keep it plugged in when producing or gaming but overall for the price, graphics card and upgradeable memory, you really can’t go wrong. It’s a baby HP Omen

    I’m surprised how at how awesome and fast this laptop has been. I play a lot of first person shooter competitively and it runs perfectly for it. The 144hz looks awesome and it performs just as well on an external monitor. I put 16GB RAM and an additional 1Tb ssd. It’s super quick and boots fast. HP also has a great warranty on it for a year.

    I purchased this machine to replace an old laptop I use for music recording and production. I wanted something with a fast SSD to open up music projects quickly compared to the old HDD in my old laptop. I got this machine on sale at $700, which I think is a great price for it. For the purposes of music production, I was pretty satisfied with it. It definitely loads projects and games quickly. But I did start to bump into some issues when it comes to sustained reads and writes. I wanted to test out its gaming capabilities, so I used an external HDD to transfer games between my desktop and this machine. The write speeds were very slow when moving the games from the external HDD to this new machine. Slower than the read/write speed of the external HDD. I could see in task manager that the local C: drive on the laptop is pegged at 100%, so it is clearly the bottleneck. This sustained read/write performance problem was consistent throughout all game transfers, music file transfers, and even occurs moving files around within the C: drive. I tested this with and without Optane. I don't know if the one I purchased is defective, but compared to my other solid state systems, this drive performance is very poor. So I would say if you move large files around often, may sure that you are getting the advertised read/write speeds. As a gaming machine, the laptop is pretty impressive. It can deliver a great 1080p 60 fps experience in most modern AAA games with graphics settings set to medium/high. It can run some games up to 144 fps fairly easily (like Doom Eternal). The only problem is that the panel can only run at 60hz and 144 hz, with nothing in between. So if you wanted to cap the refresh rate at 90hz for example you cannot do that, and it is not a GSYNC panel, so if you like to game in that sweet spot of 90hz with the graphics settings a bit higher this machine won't really do that. My last negative on this system is that it is very loud. This thing constantly spins up like a jet engine. Even if you are just sitting on the desktop. When playing games it sounds like it is gearing up to launch you into orbit. Now this is pretty typical for gaming laptops, but the noise levels outside of gaming are kind of ridiculous. For music production, if you want a nice quiet environment, forget this machine. In summary, I think this is a good but flawed system. If you can get it on sale it may be worth it for gaming, but for productivity and office use it has some serious issues (poor sustained read/write speeds and high noise levels).

    Awesome little beast plus I got it on sale for 699. The only thing i probably will do is upgrade memory to 16 gig. For the specs this thing is a buy at regular price. I was torn between this and the Asus and glad I went with the HP. The keyboard color can be changed in the bios, You have 3 options 30 seconds 3 minutes or never. This replaced an Acer Nitro 5 and this is a much faster. I like the screen just a little bigger without the bulk of a 17 inch. The screen res is great with 144hz. For the price you can beat it

    Excellent design. A bit heavy as compared to any 15.6" machine but having a 16.1" display sharped with 300+ nits and 144Hz is worth it to be 0.52 Lb more.

    Got this laptop since I finally decided to join the pc master race. I'm satisfied with it, even with the 8gb of ram the pc boots up super quick, it is able to handle games at 1080p hitting the 60 fps. Honestly I love it, I swapped out the 8gb of ram for 16gb now this rig handles like a dream. My one pet peave that seems irrelevant is the fan, it tends to make a whirring noise now and again but with my head set and the cooling fan stand on It gets drowned out. Good starter rig.

    Works great. It has played everything I have thrown at it so far, including several high demand VR games like Half Life Alyx, Boneworks, and Lond Echo. I bought this primarily to use with Oculus Link, and it has worked perfectly fine in that regard. Although some of the games may need to be on lower settings to get a smoother FPS, the graphical fidelity is still greatly improved over the Quest 2’s default graphics, which I am currently using as a headset. Also added 16gb of ram and an extra SSD to improve on the experience. Extremely satisfied overall.

    Great student laptop for the value. I bought this for my daughter to help with school and her creative outlets and it comes with everything a High School Student needs! Great Processing Speed, the minimum amount of ram needed to run all her programs, a webcam for her Zoom classes, a great video card for gaming and a fast SSD with room to grow in a night complete package. I got it on sale at a great price - not retail so that made it even better.

    Highly recommend! Caught this laptop on sale, and very impressed with it. It boots incredibly fast, and has had no problem running any game or application I’ve tried. The 16” display and 1660 ti graphics really set this apart from other laptops in this range. It’s perfect for work/school and gaming. And with upgradable RAM and SATA slots, it’s got some room to grow if needed.

    I was needing a new laptop since my last one gave up and crashed. I've always wanted a gaming notebook, and this was the perfect intro into the laptops. So far, I am loving it. Not only do I use it for gaming, but also for my photography editing and video editing. Definitely recommend.

    Great laptop - easy to use and with NVIDIA in the mix it's a great deal. Purchased on a sale but wouldn't hesitate to buy at the full price, if that was my option. Love the light up keyboard, and the speaker sounds pretty good for a laptop. Image quality is great, too. Movies and games both look fantastic.

    Had to upgrade ram 8 isn't enough. But other than that this has been one of the greatest purchase I have ever made. I get like 90 fps in cod high setting and with the 144hz I can see all of them. Buttery smooth! I came from console and geez what people say is true, high refresh gaming is amazing! If you get this laptop you won't be disappointed. Also I did the pickup in store they had it ready immediately and It took a minute for me to get it and get out. Great service!
