HP Omen 16 Review: The Adult’s Gaming Laptop

When I think of gaming laptops (even the best gaming laptops) I still can’t help but think of colorful lighting and red stripes. Despite years of refinement, it’s hard to shake a reputation,

But the HP Omen 16 is perhaps the nail in the coffin for that look. Sure, it’s powerful enough to play games with its Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and Intel Core i7-12700H, but the Omen might as well be wearing a tux. It’s classy looking, the adult’s gaming laptop.

Some of those refinements are skin-deep. The massive touchpad is mushy, and the webcam — more important than ever these days — is still stuck at 720p. But if you want a gaming PC with plenty of ports and beauty to match its power, the Omen 16 is a worthy competitor.
