It's a decent system, should be able to play newer games at medium-ish settings at 60 FPS.

Heaven is a good benchmark.

The only real downside to HP's is that they can come with a bunch of bloatware so you may want to go through and delete the stuff you don't need. If your unsure of what a program does then look it up online.
Thank you. Also, ideally the Omen centre is showing around 3.52 gb of RAM usage. Is that normal?

Hi,

I ran the 3D Mark Time Spy test and got the score as 3441. When clicked on compare results online, it says "better than 20% of all results".

I don't know why but I am getting an error while uploading a screenshot.

Is this score normal? Please let me know.
Thanks is advance.

It's been awhile since I've done any benchmarking so I forgot the normal scoring however all you'd have to do is compare it against those with the same hardware.

As for the memory usage that seems about normal with a 8gb system.
Thank you once again. When I compared, it showed that "its better than 20% of all results" in that URL.

Also one more thing. I was watching some youtube videos and noticed that if I resumed the video after pausing for more than 20 seconds, the audio comes up after 2-3 seconds. Is this something to be concerned with?
I know these questions might seem silly, but since this is new, I am getting paranoid over these things.

Not too sure about the audio ( can't say I watch enough YT vids to even notice) but it probably won't hurt to contact HP.

My guess is possibly a internet issue but I'm not entirely sure.
Maybe thinking too much. Noticed that in one video. The next one was fine. Internet is good though. Was streaming in 720p.

Hopefully some good performance, I'm looking for a decently priced gaming laptop myself and found this which has pretty much identical specs.

If you have the Division 2 I'd love to know how well it handles it on Med/High settings.
That laptop has similar specs as mine, but it is so much cheaper. I bought this one for 84,390 INR which is roughly 1181 USD :(
The import taxes to India are way too high. I could have gotten a laptop with GTX 2080 with this budget.

Sadly, I don't have The Division 2. The most recent game that I have in my steam library is Rise of the Tomb Raider. Also, Witcher 3 and GTA V.

One more thing. I have an extension which has one 3-pin port and two 2-pin ports. But the extension itself only has 2-pin adapter. So is it safe to plug in my 3-pin laptop adapter to this extension? Someone told me it's not safe.
