As far as gaming laptops in Kenya go, the HP Omen 17 is a good contender for the best one. It comes with a display real estate of 17.3 inches, this ensures that the gaming experience is immersive.
What really stands out in this gaming laptop is the display quality, with a choice of 4K display or a HD one.
The processor options of the HP Omen 17 in Kenya also comes in twos, a 6th or 7th generation Intel Core i7. The laptop also comes with a ton of security features, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU and 16GB of RAM.

Listed below are the key features of the HP Omen 17
At over 17 inches, this laptop is in the BULKY category. It might not be convenient to carry around in a laptop bag. However, it can serve as a replacement to a desktop computer in the house. This is appropriate if the HP Omen 17 laptop will be regularly moved from room to room.
However, the weight is un-proportionately small when compared to its size.
The Keyboard is a full sized one; it has a red backlight which has come to symbolize gaming in the recent years.
Design was really not a major “façade” that they were focusing on, however the performance is where the Omen 17 makes a lot of noise in Kenya. the focus was purely on the screen, graphics and storage.
Gigantic is one word I can use to describe the screen, 4K is another. Coming in at 17.3 inches, the display leads to an immersive gaming experience, which can only be found in large monitors.
With G-Sync, tearing is noticeably absent—this is also another strength of this laptop compared to the ones released in Kenya in 2016 and 2015.
At the price point, and taking into consideration value for money, the HP Omen 17 is a quality gaming laptop in Kenya.
Two options exist here when it comes to the processor. The first is an Intel Core i7 6th Generation and the other is 7th Gen. Your budget will determine the options.
This time, three options exists for the Omen 17 Graphics card.
The 1st one is the most expensive while the third is the least expensive.
Just like above, storage options are also available. According to your liking you can either go for 256SSD 1TB or 512SSD 2TB. These will largely depend on the number of games you have. I suspect that the next iteration of GTA will be over 100GB. You only need 10 of these to fill up the lower capacity one.
Also let us not forget about the RAM. This has majorly been assumed since RAM has become so cheap in Kenya in the recent past. In the OMEN is a 16GB DDR4 RAM, which is the bare minimum for maximum game immersion and multi-tasking.
There is a decent number of ports, though they did not go overboard in the provisions. USB Type A ports are three.
An HDMI port also exists with a mini display port also complementing the HP laptop
Other ports include mic, headset, SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet. However, it does not come with Thunderbolt 3 which almost all the premium gaming laptops in Kenya have.
The HP Omen 17 is not yet available in Kenya. It will be available at Jumia for not less than Kshs 200,000.
