    So they have a RX 580 entry-level model and a 1070 high-end model? Interesting.

    The linked article states that the Omen 15 will have Max-Q graphics (presumably 1060 Max-Q). Will be interesting to see if it can outperform the regular 1050TI in the same notebook. Interesting that it is not in the HP chart.

    Looks like the PCH has dedicated heatsink in 17" while 15" it is not cooled at all

    The 17" looks thick enough to house an MXM; too bad they are not going full HK CPU with that kind of space (judging by USB A size and DVD drive, about 1.7" thick). Heck if they dropped the DVD drive. they could probably have Desktop CPU (Even Ryzen) and MXM GPU. Would be amazing if OEM wasn't scared to do this.

    RX 550 price tag is retarded. The 580 one sort of makes sense due to the SSD and extra RAM but still. RX 550 model should either be a 560 or be dropped to 700$ max.

    It looks interesting. At least its not a carbon copy of a Pavilion this time. Hope the build quality is good

    Also the prices for the 15 inch versions are retarded. $1599 for the 1050ti version are u serious?. Also the 1050 versions shouldnt be over $1000 at all, thats goes for the 17inch versions too.

    Yeah I hope the prices stay at the current OMEN price range. If they get a bit more quiet than previous generations and stay relatively cheap I will buy one. Hope they get released soon.

    Relative to other HP products, the 2017 Omen lineup will have its own distinctive design across the board. From the looks of it, the 2017 HP Pavilion Power notebook refreshes will take on a design that's similar to the 2016 Envy line:

    http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-pavilion-power---quad-w--2gb-gfx-touch-optional-1gk62av-1

    Looking at slated retail prices for the 2017 Pavilion and Omen notebook refreshes, they are expected to increase compared to the 2016 models. Base configuration prices are modestly higher, and the cost to upgrade to higher options appear to be quite steep from there. :(

    That does not sound to hopeful. I really think HP bites their own ass if they set the prices to high. If they want to compete with the giants in gaming laptops I really think they need to keep their competative pricing.
