Claims that the Omen 15 is the first gaming laptop to get it

HP has jacked up the the refresh rate on its latest Omen 15.

According to Engadget, HP will release the device in July. The maker of expensive printer ink said that it's the world's first gaming laptop with a 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IPS display.

It comes with Nvidia's RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU, an 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and the latest 802.11ax wireless, aka "WiFi 6".

Since it comes from HP, the Omen 15 packs a relatively low-profile design and just a red "X" on the back to make it more gamey and less like something someone would put on their table on the 7.30am train from Nottingham. 

Other than that the design song remains the same as the last model, with ultra-slim side bezels, an LED keyboard and fairly lightweight 5.3 pound weight. Given the specs, it should also suit graphics pros that don't mind standing out a bit from the button-down business notebook crowd.

The Omen 15 with a regular display arrives in February at a starting price of $1,370, while the 240 Hz version comes in July and no one is saying how much that will be.
