HP’s VR backpack PC doubles as a desktop

In Gaming

Thanks to the addition of a
Nintendo Switch
-like dock, The Omen X Compact Desktop now
presents users with a much better value proposition. While
previously this kit could only be used for VR experiences on
the go, this dock solves the device’s biggest problem, easily
transforming the gimmicky kit into a regular desktop-friendly
PC.

Spec wise, the Omen X Compact is a fairly decent PC in its own
right, boasting a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and a Kaby
Lake i7 processor. Bizarrely though, the computer and dock are
being sold separately from the backpack parts, with the pair
starting at $2,499. If you want the Omen’s key selling point,
however, you’ll need to shell out an extra $600 on top of that
for the backpack accessory.

The Omen X Compact goes on sale in July. With virtual reality
failing to take off in quite the way many hoped, HP’s decision
to future-proof the device seems like a wise one. Yet, with
VR’s killer apps arguably yet to come, the question is whether
this impressive setup is worth $3,000 in the first place.
