HP Unveils World’s Lightest 14-Inch Gaming Laptop at CES 2024
Las Vegas, NV – HP has made waves at CES 2024 by unveiling its latest gaming laptop, the Omen Transcend 14. Weighing in at just 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg), this revolutionary device is being touted as the lightest 14-inch gaming laptop in the world.
Despite its lightweight design, the Omen Transcend 14 packs a punch when it comes to performance. Powered by 14th-gen Intel Core Ultra 7 or Ultra 9 processors, it can support up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM, 2TB of storage, and an RTX 4070 GPU. Gamers can expect impressive graphics and smooth gameplay on its 2.8K OLED panel with a variable 120Hz refresh rate and HDR support.
Connectivity options include two USB-A and two USB-C ports, with one Thunderbolt 4 port for lightning-fast data transfer. Additionally, it features a full-size HDMI 2.1 jack for seamless connection to external displays. Wireless options are covered with Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4.
The Omen Transcend 14 also offers some unique features. Equipped with a Meteor Lake chip and a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), it can offload certain tasks to optimize performance. Audio has been fine-tuned by HP’s in-house sub-brand HyperX, and the laptop even includes a built-in wireless receiver for the company’s Cloud III headphones.
Design-wise, the Transcend 14 takes a minimalist approach with sleek lines and a matte finish. It will be available in classic black or white, catering to different aesthetic preferences.
The laptop is expected to face tough competition from other sleek gaming PCs being launched at CES 2024. However, with its lightweight yet powerful characteristics, the Omen Transcend 14 is poised to capture the attention of gamers worldwide.
