    Hi,
    Which one offer more value for the buck? AERO 17 HDR SA ($1,999 on Amazon bought in March) seems to be overpriced vs. Omen 17t ($1,529) so is there smth I'm missing? Some flaw? Omen has higher RAM and storage but larger, has thicker bezels, smaller battery. Why such a difference in prices? What has been your experience with either of them? I have to decide in the next 5 days unfortunately and some help would be really welcome!

    One is an mega MNC that have big market of demand out there, while... another have production volume like watches of mid-end brand.
    So... which one would you think can make more affordable gears? :D

    So Omen 17t is just a better bang for buck overall? No hidden flaws at all for Omen 17t? Why people buy Aero 17 at all then with a $400 differential? Sorry, I just want to know if I should return Aero 17t and buy Omen 17t instead. The only drawbacks to the Omen 17t are thicker bezels, larger case and higher weight, right?

    That extra 1lb difference though could be important in transatlantic flights and longer travels.
