GTX 960m to 980m graphics in laptops

HP Recommended

Hey HP i thought i good suggestion would be to have customization options for the ENVY and OMEN series of laptops by being able to customize the graphics with GTX 960m to 980m like other competitors because i really like hp products especially the ENVY series as they feel really premium in the build quality and the features like the fingerprint scanner (which used to on older ENVY models, dont know why it was removed) and the quad speakers and 2 subwoofers from the time BEATS was accquired. I love those products and i still have mine although its not in full physical working order but i use it as a desktop connected to an external monitor.

Well HP now the new series of GTX graphics cards are out, do you guys have any plans to utilize these cards?

I mean if you guys can charge around $2,000 of the speced out version of the first HP Omen laptop, then why not at least put in a GTX 1060 and try to bring the price down to reach out to us gamers who loves your products. An additional feature you should also put back into the new series of laptops if we have a to pay a price is the RGB backlighting on the keyboard. It made a good appeal to me in asthetics as I have the options for customizablility. But going with red backlighting? Come on you guys can do a lot of better.

Good job on the new versions of the HP Omen, have the GTX 1060 and 1070 cards. The problems are that you guys put a 4K screen which makes the price go up when 1080p is just fine. Another thing is that you guys didn't even put a  USB type c port like the other competitors and again I'm stressing on this, what happened to the RGB individually lit backlit keybard? You guys had something really good going and then decided to kill something that was a great feature. Before throwing in all the fancy storage space and everything why not focus on the little things too, like the keyboard, or the ports such as adding back 4 USB 3.0 ports and place 2 subwoofers back on the laptop with the quad speakers like the old HP ENVY's with Beats Audio. I have one still and I can say that thing is the best sounding laptop from you guys. You guys are not focused on reaching any price point like the other competitors for example ASUS the same specs as one of the GTX 1070 models of the Omen in their laptop cost $1699 whereas the Omen is for 2099 and likewsie for the 1060 model the ASUS version is cheaper at $1399 rather than $1859.

Bill there is one issue with the new omen laptops the 15 inch in particular, where is the option for FHD screen with a gtx 1060???? Come, does hp not consider people who are on a budget? I don't need a 4k screen for gaming! Plus I don't want to shell out $1600 for that when I can go to Acer and get a laptop with close specs for $1100. I know that's what the gtx 1050 ti config is for. It's for people on a budget. But people like me would like to try and get a gtx 1060 in a laptop without breaking the bank. The 4k option is great don't get me wrong but we would like to see some variety in the configs that work around the gtx 1060 not just one option and only around the gtx 1050 and rx 550. I hope you understand and can pass this information on to the right people.
