What the hell has happened to Hewlett Packard?
They used to make the best notebooks around. 10-15 Years ago, basically all notebooks my family bought were from HP. These devices lasted for at least 6-8 years each.
Now I have a fucking expensive OMEN series notebook failing after 2 years with the most embarrasing hardware problems: Once a shielded piece of plastic from the bottom broke off and made a short on the mainboard, next time the way too thin power line that goes from the power plug to the PCB was placed alongside a sharp metal piece that damaged the isolation and again produced a short. When the display is moved, the webcam disconnects, which is also a hint at the production quality.
From my daughter's HP notebook the Display just broke off after like 18 months of use. When we brought it to service I asked the guy whether this happens a lot, he was like "I have 6 other notebooks of that type with the same problem in repair right now". After a repair that took forever because they couldn't get the proper replacement parts, the integrated webcam has died.
Never ever going to buy anything from this shitbrand again.

    I've felt this way with every gaming branded laptops. The EliteBook and similar models (HP) seems a lot better.

    Maybe that's basically the same as their cheaper stuff that has always been prone to failing, or to last precisely just over the warranty period.

    HP is total shit.
    Lenovo still has the thinkpad line. Dell has the precision line that can handle a few hits.

    My dad bought an HP laptop in 2010, and that thing is 'technically' still alive

    the newer ones are kinda shit though, agreed.
