HP Omen 17 (2019) is certainly not following the thin and light gaming laptop trend. This gives its manufacturer the ability to play around with all that free space inside. And they surely gave everything they have – take a look.
1. Remove the bottom plate
In order to remove the bottom plate, you need to unscrew all 10 Phillips-head screws. After that everything is made super easy, as the edge pops open and you just need to pry the rest up. This reveals a well-used internal space – everything has its place in an organized chassis.
HP Omen 17 (2019)’s battery is equipped with a 70 Wh battery pack. It is secured by four Phillips-head screws and easily pops out due to its connector design – it directly contacts with the motherboard when it is mounted.
3. Memory and storage
Memory-wise there are two RAM DIMMs, supporting up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM working at 2666 MHz. As of the storage – well, you can rarely see this on a laptop, but it not only supports RAID 0, through its two M.2 PCIe slots, but it also has support for Optane H10 drives.
4. Cooling system
Remember we said, that HP had the opportunity to play with a lot of free space? Well, this is the result – two incredibly big blower-type fans are extracting the heat out of the heatsinks and quietly dissipating it into the environment. A couple of heat pipes are shared between the two chips. Additionally, there is one cooling the VRMs, the memory, and the GPU itself. All of this is complemented with a rather large metal plate.
