    James

    Great review, I was wondering how it compares to the HP omen 15 with the RTX 2060 and AMD Ryzen 7 4800H? I have had this laptop for over six months but would be interested in grabbing a new one for my son. It’s the same laptop as this one here: https://jimmtech.com/hp-omen-15-gaming-laptop-review/
