The new Omen 17 will be the first in the Omen lineup to feature a dedicated Copilot key for quick access to Microsoft’s AI technology. HP remarked that laptop users will also benefit from the Omen 17’s AI-driven Omen camera and voice enhancer for improved audio/video experiences. HP has other AI-powered features, too: an exclusive smart transcription feature with the ability to take down notes from spoken audio, powered by Otter.ai.

The Omen 17 is cooled by the company’s Tempest Cooling, which HP touts as being able to keep the laptop cool “even during intense play" with its three-side venting and dual 12V fans. This will come in handy for those who choose the optional AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS in combination with the optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU. The laptop will be available in other configurations, of course, including AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 CPUs, and your choice of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 or 4060 GPUs.
