    Hey! I recently bought the "OMEN by HP 15-ax250wm Laptop" on clearance for what I think is a crazy good deal. It was $499, but then it was a display model so it came out to $486 after tax!

    The specs are as follows:
    Summary
    Operating System
    Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    CPU
    Intel Core i7 7700HQ @ 2.80GHz 48 °C
    Kaby Lake 14nm Technology
    RAM
    12.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1197MHz (17-17-17-39)
    Motherboard
    HP 8259 (U3E1) 53 °C
    Graphics
    Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 630 (HP)
    4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (HP) 39 °C
    ForceWare version: 388.13
    SLI Disabled
    Storage
    931GB Hitachi HGST HTS721010A9E630 (SATA) 27 °C
    Optical Drives
    No optical disk drives detected
    Audio
    Realtek High Definition Audio

    Any tips for a newcomer to this machine? Anything I should uninstall right away? Plenty of HP bloatware and automatically installing games to sort through. Anyone have experience with undervolt or overclocking with this? I'll start going through the huge amount of info in this thread :D

    I'm going to be adding in an m.2 SSD for the OS. This is the first time I've used windows in a few years on a standard HDD and it is jarring!
    Thx!

    Not sure if this is the correct thread for your machine, because the thread is about the badass 2015 models that look like this:
