HP OMEN 17 Over the last year, the sheer elation and escapism of gaming has really come into its own. But components shortages have made building your own gaming rig nigh on impossible. Fortunately, gaming laptops have become a great alternative, combining top-tier specs with portability. Case in point: the HP Omen 17. Available with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, it will make any AAA title gleam, while its max 32GB of RAM and Intel Core i7-11800H processor will absolutely shred any task you can think of. Additionally, its 165Hz QHD display with 3ms response time and Wi-Fi 6E compatibility make lag virtually non-existent – helping you waste any opponent. And HP isn’t only thinking about the short term: its RAM and SSD are easily upgradeable, while its keyboard…

editor’s letter

As lockdown has eased in recent months, things have quickly begun to feel like business as usual. Long gone is that quintessentially British sight of punters on pavements forcing down pie and mash during a tempest. And the regular release of new top-tier tech has made it feel like the industry is springing into life once again. It’s not all completely hunky dory though. IFA, Europe’s biggest tech conference, has recently decided to pull the plug on September’s event, shrewdly recognising that gathering a quarter of a million delegates during a pandemic may, strictly speaking, not be the wisest idea. Conversely, Mobile World Congress is, at the time of writing, holding firm on returning later this month, despite the fact the number of major brands attending is dropping quicker than the…

This is not a hybrid as such – the ARM CPU of the thin and light Galaxy Book S is gone, replaced by a slightly more Windows-friendly PC processor – but the DNA of phones is there in the super-thin AMOLED display, in the incredibly skinny case design,…
