The HP Omen 15 2020 is powered by Intel Core i7-10750H and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650Ti, which gives it unleashed power and good quality. One of the striking features of the device is its thermals. Though HP is not much well known for the thermals, the Omen stands apart in this. In a 24-28 degree ambient temperature, not once did the HP Omen 15 feel like it would heat up like a toaster. The keyboard remains fresh throughout its workout, unlike many other gaming laptops.

The WASD keys recorded a regulated temperature of 38-degrees, while the keyboard center was at 44-degrees. The hottest part was the speaker grill, which stood at 50+ degrees. The readings of the test were taken during the game-testing that ended for 6-8 hours at a stretch.

The cooling sensation can be credited to two design choices of the laptop. One is the large perforations located at the bottom lid that helps the two fans to suck in air with little obstruction. Second is the fin stack that runs the laptop from the left to the right side.

The HP Omen 15 2020 has a sharp 1080p IPS panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The panel supports right 8-bit color per channel with a bright panel that registers 310 lux of brightness in the center. The matte coating of the display handles reflections effectively. Another right area of the Omen 15 is its choice of storage.
