HP L9U78AA#ABA Overview

  • 1Description

Thin at just 0.78", the 15.6" OMEN Pro Multi-Touch Mobile Workstation from HP is a powerful and versatile system designed with portability in mind. It is powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-4870HQ Quad-Core processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 3.7 GHz and the 16GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.

The 15.6" IPS UWVA display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, an anti-glare finish, 300 cd/m2 brightness, a typical contrast ratio of 600:1, 141 ppi, and viewing angles of 85°. This display also features touchscreen support, allowing users to control certain aspects of the system without the use of a keyboard or mouse. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro K1100M graphics card has 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's Mini DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI ports.

For long term storage of your files, a 512GB Z Turbo Drive M.2 PCIe SSD offers quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the larger capacity of a traditional hard drive, it is able to operate with faster data transfer speeds because it contains no moving parts. Additionally, its lack of moving parts also helps it to be more resistant to damage from bumps and drops. SSDs also receive less wear and tear because the drive has no read and write heads that the disk media comes into contact with. Lastly, because this SSD connects using a PCIe connection, it operates even faster than an SSD that uses a SATA connection.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the OMEN Pro offers four USB 3.0 Type-A ports that support data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s. 802.11ac Wi-Fi is also built-in for wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.0 LE technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. While this system does not have an integrated Ethernet port, it does include a USB to Ethernet dongle. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in multi-format SD card reader allows users to download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a Full HD 1080p WVA webcam, dual-array microphones with beam forming, echo cancellation, and noise suppression, and stereo speakers with Bang & Olufsen audio.

The OMEN Pro includes a 120W AC adapter, a 6.0' power cord, and a 4-cell/58Wh Lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts for up to five hours before recharging is required. The installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit).

    HP L9U78AA#ABA Reviews

    15.6" OMEN Pro Multi-Touch Mobile Workstation is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this laptop for video and photo edition!! So far so good:) I am writing from omen pro right now. What i like the most is the very good quality screen, true colors etc. Battery last 3 hours which is short, . However i bought it for videos and pictures edition. It's fast and powerfull. Option with Cortana is cool!:) Bang and Olufsen speakers are a little bit of low quality, but you can easily fix this by downloading the SRS Sound application from HP website which will greatly increase sound quality. Overally, very good laptop for editing videos and pictures. Fast and powerfull. Not so good as a portable laptop, but screen is awesome and touch screen option is fantastic as well!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Updated Review. Nothing but headaches The computer worked well for about 45-60 Days. After that, nothing but problems. I contacted BH Photo first. They told me since 2 months had passed there is nothing they can do. I needed to contact HP. The initial problem was some of the keys on the keyboard stopped working. After tech support did not resolve the issue. They said they were going to send over a tech person to replace the keyboard. The keyboard was build into the computer so they had to disassemble the entire machine to replace the part. After that the keyboard worked but other issues started appearing. the computer overheated and was turning off by itself after a few minutes of use. The tech came again replaced the cooling fluid which he said was the problem. When i got back the laptop from the service tech it was a little open on one end. I told him it wasn't like that initially so he ordered a new back cover Nd replaced it so that the computer closes fully. It worked for 5 more days after that and now won't turn on at all. The keyboard lights up and that's it. Almost 4 weeks since the initial service call. The computer still does not work. I contacted HP and said they should replace it since I bought it new machine. They told me they will only service it. That's what they have been doing so far and it hasn't worked. If you already bought this machine, I hope that you do not experience what I experienced. If you didn't buy it yet, my suggestion, don't

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from About the care pack (IMPORTANT) To receive the 3year care pack you have to register your laptop with HP.com first. If you don't register there is no care pack and no customer service (not HP not B&H) will be able to help. After you register your laptop with hp, it will take 1-3 days to receive an email about the care pack.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy. Don't buy it. Two issues: 1. Screen pops up and lid won't close. See pictures. 2. Keyboard is defective for this model. You type S, the screen will show W. You want to type in @ and it won't allow you to do that. 3. Bad customer service. HP tries everything they can to make the repair process as confuse as possible. 4. HP does the following to me: Only submit service ticket from Web, and the website only available 30% of the time. Will ask you to ship it back, but won't tell you where to ship it to. Keep asking you to close the case at the same time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good OMEN Gorgeous screen, plenty fast, free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. My use primarily to edit photos via Lightroom. I'm a Mac guy last 8 yrs but I'm giving this workstation a whirl cuz the price was amazing for the feature set.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent power packed Laptop In terms of Style, very sleek looking computer. As far as performance, I have only had it for a week but it runs photoshop pretty well. At times fan can be a bit noisy when a lot of files are open but not overwhelming. The laptop came with a mouse, which for me is a necessity on this computer because I can't right click on the mouse pad. battery life is around 1.5 hours

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Workhorse There is no any perfect mobile workstation. I'm using an HP Zbook Z3 provided by the company for work and purchased this Omen Pro for heavy personal use, the value is less than the half of the price of the first one, and it does the same. Pros: +Great materials quality, great finish. +Very nice screen, great colors, glossy reflective, but fine, not so reflective as the ASUS 2 in 1 I have and a bit worse than the MacBook Pro I had. It is not a mirror as the reviews say it seems to have a very stubble purple antireflective coating. +Powerful +Great CPU and GPU, even a bit outdated, but it does not matter since they are very powerful though. +Good amount of memory and SSD. Cons: -Windows 7 refused to search and install Windows Updates, tried reimaging the notebook (from the recovery partition) and a lot of tricks nothing worked, even I was unable to upgrade to win 10 since the notebook can not install the latest updates required to upgrade. Then formatted the whole SSD and installed Win 10 Pro, all the drivers are available. With Windows 10 pro, it is a pleasure, it runs even smoother, and the fan is really quiet now, with Win7 it was quite noisy sometimes. -The back ports are very uncomfortable, and too close each other, I can live with this. -Keyboard moved to the right, at first I was unable to type a word. Yes I recommend this Notebook.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiny Powerhouse I bought this for a work computer for better performance doing some graphic design. Since it is mostly going to be sitting on my desk inside, the higher reflective screen does not bother me. It's fast and performs how it should. It's also very compact and slim making it fantastic for transporting around if needed. My only cons are somewhat connected - It was difficult to know exactly the specs on this laptop because all of the places I was looking at to purchase (B&H included) had a somewhat generic spec list of all the different versions of this laptop. It made me unsure of what exactly I would be receiving. In that confusion, I may have missed that this item does not have a Ethernet port. It does come with a USB to Ethernet network adapter but keep in mind that it occupies one of your only 4 USB slots. Since I am using a wireless keyboard, mouse, Ethernet, and external monitor, that leaves me with 1 USB slot left for phone charger/older card readers/ect.
