In terms of design, the latest HP Omen 15 is one attractive-looking machine. It has a smooth plastic lid accented with a beautiful turquoise-blue diamond. HP's signature Omen logo is subtly embossed underneath the graphic. The laptop's premium aluminum finish interior reveals an island-style four-zone lighting RGB keyboard.
