HP’s Modular Gaming PCs Get Revamped As Minimalist Tool-Free Desktops

May 5, 2020

Category: Tech

One of the biggest benefits of desktop gaming PCs, especially when compared to in-home consoles, is their modularity and ability to be customized. However, over the years, their styling has gotten a bit loud, gaudy, and perhaps a touch too sci-fi-inspired for many. HP appears to recognize this issue and have taken the opportunity to revamp and tone down their OMEN lineup for 2020.

The new computers still boast many of the same bells and whistles people have come to expect — including available 10th-generation Intel Core or AMD Ryzen 9 processors, GeForce RTX or Radeon RX graphics cards, up to 64GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of SSD onboard storage. However, they’ve also been pared-down, blacked-out, and equipped with EMI-coated glass side panels — though they still have optional RGB lighting with access to over 16.8 million colors for those that want it. The biggest bonus of this redesign, however, comes in the fact that the internals are now fully-accessible completely tool-free — meaning you don’t have to be a technician with a full set of tools to take apart and modify them. There’s no word yet on price, but we expect the HP OMEN 25L and 30L to hit shelves soon.
