Modern HP hardware can be half decent, a lot better than the old days, might not be all too bad

Yeah, I was thinking that. Could be fine. Companies are bought all the time and see virtually no negative changes.

They are not. HP are terrible. Our entire company is swapping out their laptops annually due to faults, and badly design elite books. The screens can pop out, panels break down randomly, mouse pad lose connectivity, wifi stops working permanently and many more. There is no consistency at all. Also almost 40% of them end up being replaced as the battery swells and goes "pop".

The only good thing is the 1.4 HDMI 2.0. Shame we are locked in to exclusive contract for another 2 years.

I want my lenovo back

Anyways, Big companies can provide big budgets so maybe HyperX can expand. It depends what the agenda is.

Hmm, I wonder how HyperX and Omen can coexist under the same umbrella.


But pretty inconsequential in my opinion, HyperX is mostly just gaming junk. Their RAM can be a decent deal in a pinch but that's about it.

Yeah that's more what I mean.
HP might not be quite on the level of Lenovo ThinkPads and such, but we're talking about HyperX at the end of the day, gaming tat

I had an Omen laptop briefly until I flipped it, not much bad to say except they just awkwardly laid ISO Nordic keyboard layout on ANSI buttons, which is common for HP and also fairly irritating. Also fairly logically laid out inside and easy to upgrade.

But the design language is just obnoxious.


I haven't been that impressed with Lenovo either, though I am not in charge of maintaining the fleet of laptops at work... But the expensive factory docks are full of issues, their update service is absolute junk and before firmware update (which took them a year) the laptops ran their TB3 controller outside spec, frying them slowly.
