    All come with a 3 year warranty. I'm not sure on the upgrade-able side of things. The prices are all about $1,000+ but not over 1,500

    Well at this point check what features it has (how many and what types of usb ports, what optical drives, how many drive bays can it hold and check that it can do both 2.4 and 5 GHZ wifi) and make a decision.

    I want to lean with the Omen. I have just always been told that HP computers are not made for gaming. I know ASUS is. They have also something called a MSI Nightblade MIB computer as well,.

    I say ignore the muh gamurr marketing stuff (and also the fanboyism to brands). Most of it is bs to jack prices up. What asus rog exactly are we taling about tho. Is it this one? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883221086

    Aside from the slightly slower cpu (its also a lot cheaper too) the asus rog is the clear winner.
    - The gpu is better,
    - It has one extra hdd bay
    - The kb+mouse seems to be better.
    - has 2 usb 3.1 and one usb type C (the omen doesn't even have usb 3.1 or type C in the specs)
    - one 5.25" bay that you could use to buy a hhd adapter if you wish.

    The omen has a rx 480 but its the 4GB version thats slower than the 1060 6GB. So the gaming performance being better because of the 7700 is big IF. The rog is $999 the omen is $1199 using newegg prices.

    i mean if you bought the omen already and you think the asus rog features will come in handy then go ahead, if you think the omen is perfectly fine then keep it.

    It will be shipped (OMEN) Tuesday. But if I refuse it when it comes, they return it, I get credit on my accoutn and then I can order the ASUS. I'm just ready to start back gaming with my old buddies and start using my Filmora to make my youtube fishing videos. I just want to make the best choice. Thank you Lego and to everyone who is helping me. I know you're busy. I appreciate it.
