Here is the very first laptop with dual-screens. The primary display is a 15-inch screen, and the secondary display is 6-inches and keyboard-mounted. Stay on your main task with the 15-inch full screen and keep an eye on other tabs in the second display, which is a pretty impressive 1080p touchscreen, considering that it is only 6-inches. It’s almost like having a smartphone screen connected right next to your main laptop display. It has also been described in HP Omen X 2S reviews as similar to a GamePad on a Nintendo Wii U. Some users even set macros on the mini-display, or use it to monitor system performance.
There are benefits like “edge-to-edge immersion”, high resolutions, and a fast refresh rate to ensure that users get the best out of this machine and its dual-display setup. If the price concerns you, take the time to search for HP coupons and promo codes – you never know when a good deal is available. What sets the Omen X apart from the Asus Rog Zephyrus is that the HP version features a traditional touchpad embedded to the right of the keyboard AND a 6-inch display above the keyboard, whereas the Asus version just has a ScreenPad that replaces the traditional touchpad at the bottom.
Graphics of the HP Omen X 2S
In addition to the nice two displays, the Omen X 2S also comes with a good processor and graphics. Get an Intel Core i7 / six- core processor (2.6-GHz up to 4.5-GHz with Turbo Boost) with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics (2070 or 2080) / 8GB dedicated GDDR6. The keyboard is full-size / island-style and RGB-backlit. The pointing device is a Precision Touchpad. Personalization features include an HP Wide Vision FHD cam w/ dual digital microphone setup. Battery “fast charge” technology is supported, as the battery unit charges 50% in just 30 minutes! The primary battery itself is a six-cell / Lithium-Ion polymer unit.
To ensure that it does not overheat, HP’s solution for this laptop is a 5-way airflow cooling system that utilizes liquid metal thermal paste that, according to HP, has “10x the conductivity of regular silicon paste”.
The memory options range from 16GB (2 x 8GB) all the way up to 32GB (2 x 16GB). For the storage, there are numerous options, beginning with a 256GB PCIe-NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive, going all the way up to 2TB. Some models have 512GB SSD with 32GB of Intel Optane memory.
If you’re a serious gamer who wants to play on the best laptop possible, the HP Omen X 2S should be #1 on your list.
