The HP OMEN 15-DC0009NS is one of the teams that are part of the new range of gaming laptops from the North American manufacturer. A renovation that brings important changes at the aesthetic level, such as the original screen hinges and a much more aggressive appearance.

But that’s not all, because as we are going to see, this HP 15-DC0009NS Notebook It comes with much more powerful hardware, which “has forced” the manufacturer to provide it with a more efficient cooling system, which allows it to keep the interior at a low temperature, even if we have it working at full capacity.

HP OMEN 15-DC0009NS, more gamer than ever

To begin with, it must be said that this hp gaming notebook despite its robust appearance, has reduced its thickness compared to the previous version. It is also surprising how light it is: it only marks on the scale 2.38 kilos. An aesthetic where the black color predominates is maintained, but with forms with a more marked aggressiveness. A “detail” that does not go unnoticed are the two hinges that raise the screen, giving the impression that the panel is “floating”.

The lid is dotted with some elements in red, such as the X and the manufacturer’s logo.

The pattern of the cover made of carbon fiber is another of the most remarkable characteristics. The lid is dotted with some elements in red, such as the X and the manufacturer’s logo. On the other hand, the beautiful brushed black finish of the keyboard frame is striking. At this point, comment that the HP OMEN 15-DC0009NS brings a zone backlit keyboard (somewhat smaller than last year’s model) that includes a numeric keypad.

At the bottom of the HP 15-DC0009NS You can see the same X-shaped design that the upper part shows, although in this case completely in black. The most outstanding thing here are its two huge ventilation openings protected by their respective grilles, which will help to ensure that the cooling is always the most optimal.

Wirelessly it is also up to date: WiFi AC and Bluetooth 5.0.

Sound and webcam

Thanks to two HP speakers and custom tuning signed by the experts at B&O PLAY, you can enjoy an authentic audio experience. DTS Headphone: X, the new surround sound format from DTS, provides crystal clear sound so you can get the most out of your games. On the other hand, the HP Audio Boost technology delivers clear audio at any volume, adding a new dimension to your entertainment.

The HP 15-DC0009NS does not lack an HP Wide Vision camera with dual array digital microphone, which will allow all members of the family to always be in contact, even if they live in different parts of the world.

Hardware

The HP OMEN 15-DC0009NS comes equipped with a powerful Intel Core i7-8750H processor that operates with Turbo Boost at 4.1 GHz through its six cores. To this we must add 16 GB of DDR4 type RAM. The graphic section is essential in any gaming laptop. For this model they have opted for a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, which comes with a 4 GB GDDR5 memory, which is somewhat limited for the most demanding gamers.

Hybrid storage

Storage capacity is hybrid, something that is becoming more and more common in this type of equipment. Specifically, it is one 1TB HDD hard drive and one 256GB SSD solid state drive. Apart from having enough space to store your favorite games, you will feel like Windows 10 Home (which is the operating system that comes from the factory) and all applications start at an incredible speed.

Fast charging battery

We now turn to autonomy. Here we have a 4-cell, 70 Wh Li-ion battery that will give us more than six hours for office use, including Internet browsing. If we start playing videos, the autonomy will drop to a little more than four hours. And if we start playing, it will hardly exceed two hours. A duration that is quite short and that will have us tied to the desk. This battery has a fast charging system: with 45 minutes plugged in, 50% capacity is recharged.

Within the HP catalog, there is another very similar model that is the HP OMEN 15-DC0019NS. Although this variant has half the RAM and a 128 GB SSD. Otherwise it is practically the same.
