Engadget Review

HP’s Omen X 2S is a noble attempt at shoving a secondary display into a gaming laptop. But compared to what we’re seeing from the competition, that screen is too small to be truly useful. Still, it’s a powerful gaming laptop with a speedy 144Hz (or 240Hz) screen that’ll handle everything you throw at it.
