HP has launched its strong entry-level gaming laptop, the newest edition of the Omen 15. You can select an AMD or Intel system — both will be available at $999 starting June 2nd.

There are some internal improvements but what you are likely to note first is the style of the new Omen. The product has a nice blue diamond logo (similar to the one seen on Omen desktops at HP). Check it out below and you can see it's a strong change from the old VoodooPC logo we've used on previous versions. There's also a new , modern-looking graphic on the palm rest, and at 22.5 mm thick, the whole thing is 11 per cent thinner than its predecessor. A modern 180-degree hinge backs up the 15.6-inch screen.

HP says the new version is intended to reposition the Omen as a multifunctional Device, appealing to those who want a laptop for work or gaming as well as games. It's a simpler and more elegant look than we're used to with the Omens, and definitely a style that could better fit into an office or coffee shop environment — it's much far closer to a Razer Blade than a Helios 300.

This can be equipped with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q and an Intel Core i7 H-series or AMD Ryzen 7 H-series, in terms of other configuration. This is the first series of Omen to offer an AMD version, and also the first one with two color options; the Intel system comes in black and the AMD system comes in silver. You can also get up to 32 GB of RAM (DDR4) and up to 1 TB of PCIe SSD or dual PCIe SSD with RAID 0 support. And you can also select an OLED panel, a 120 Hz UHD panel or a 300 Hz FHD panel.

HP also announced their Pavilion Gaming 16, the first 16-inch gaming Laptop for the company. 16-inch is the size that you don't see every day on gaming laptops; HP says the design is equivalent to that of other 15-inch gaming laptops because of its slim bezels. (HP calls a 'micro-edge bezel display' to the screen)

The Pavilion has a 10th-Gen Core i7 and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q to come with. It's also the first in its line to come with the pre-installed Omen Command Center that lets players track their gaming success in real time.

The Pavilion Gaming 16 is expected to be accessible starting at $799 in June.
