Pros: Low power draw
Great performance for price
Better than 90% of the cards on the market
Other Thoughts: No problems with this card whatsoever. This is a great card and plays most of the latest games at 50 fps or higher. I don't think there is a better card bang for buck. Especially if you get it with a deal. New egg's customer service is the best!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: LED lighting
Powerful enough to play most games
Sleek and stylish
Cons: Function keys offset the keyboard
Touchpad is buggy sometimes
860M, could be 870M
Other Thoughts: This laptop is the perfect balance between style and function. Among gaming laptops, this is hands down the best looking. Even better looking than the Razer Blade's which looks more like a Macbook. The bevels along the side of the HP Omen are sharp, slanted and sleek. The LED lighting on the laptop's keys only make things look better. You can turn them to any color you want and not have them on at all.
I never really liked HP's touchpads and I rather prefer mechanical buttons to click instead of with the touchpad. The keyboard is offset to the side by one keyspace to make way for programmable function keys on the left side of the laptop. Keys that other gamers use but I certainly don't and find them a waste of space. However, the rest of the keyboard functions as it should.
The graphics, the screen and the colors function pretty well. I'm a little puzzled why HP didn't use the 870M as it can play most game at 60 fps which the 860M will go around 57 fps which is still respectable. The noise on the fans ramp up a bit on graphics intensive tasks but not enough to be an annoyance. The screen on the laptop is a touchscreen which I never ever use. I hate leaving fingerprints.
The main reason why you should buy this laptop is mainly for the style. All other gaming laptops on the market are too bulky or hot or heavy for you want to be lugging around to some coffee shop. This laptop you can take anywhere. You can go to work, to the airport, to the library and you won't seem out of place. It fits right in to a professional or recreational environment.
I'm very happy with the purchase of this laptop.
Pros: Claw grip and finger tip grip compatible
Easy to use software
Slightly textured sides
Sensor is positioned in the middle of the mouse
2 main buttons + mouse wheel + 3 extra buttons
Lift off distance not too high
Cons: Stiff non-braided cord
Blue lighting only
Other Thoughts: I go through mice like women go through clothes and this is currently the best mouse on the market for people who use claw grip or fingertip grip. It is a medium-small sized mouse that fits small handed people like me.
The overall shape of the mouse is like a tall diamond with very round edges. The front side of the diamond is much longer than the back. Because it's a diamond, it is good for both left and right hand people, but not only that. It has good balance so you don't feel like you're "tipping over" with other right hand mice. The front sides of the mouse curves in downwards just slightly. I much prefer this than having absolute flat sides. The sensor is placed in the middle of the mouse, which is optimal for me.
If you've used Logitech software recently, it is pretty much the same as before, but it's not a bad thing. Dpi settings can go from 400 to 4000. You can set up to a maximum of 5 intervals in between any number in between. Extremely flexible. With lighting on the mouse, you cannot change the color so it stays at blue. The blue lights pulsates from really slow or really fast depending how you want to set it. Pretty much all buttons are programmable. Lastly, there is a feature in the software that "heat maps" which buttons you press the most. You have to turn it on manually though, but it's a fun feature.
Other things to note: The stiff rubber cord makes the mouse being just short of perfect. If you have a small desk with a lot of objects on it, the rubber cord might actually get in the way. I guess on the plus side you don't expect the cord to break or bend. I get different drag frictions on different mouse pads, so I'm not sure which mouse pad will work best for you. The click itself is not stiff and it's very easy to press. Other mices sometimes make me work too hard to click, but not this one. I can click it all day.
Great mouse and great quality from Logitech.
