This is my first question on this StackExchange site, so please let me know how I can improve it.

I am interested in a Windows laptop (I need to program with it - including Android Studio), but besides this I want to use it also to make music (ReasonStudios, here the requirements, and being able to use with a synth keyboard), and performant enough for making timelapse video (including GoPro, not necessarily 4K).

So the requirements are:


-at least 1TB storage

-Windows 10

-Intel Core i7

-Monitor with at least 1280 x 768 resolution

-I am Not a big expert about the graphic board, so I cannot really say whatare the best requirements for video editing

For the needed characteristics I saw a gaming laptop (OMEN by HP 15-DH0039NL).

Is it a good one? Would you suggest some other laptop? My budget is <1700€$ (but of course depends on the value)

Thanks a lot!

  • Do you prefer a 13 inches (more compact) or a more classical 15 inches screen?

  • Are you a student? (just asking because several vendors have discount for students)

1 Answer 1


For HP I would recommend:

If you can afford it, I would definitely go for the first one since it has everything you're looking for. The second one has a graphics card not as powerful as the first one, and "only" 512GB of SSD (note that you could add a very good external hard disk drive and stay below $1700 total).
