Just scroll down below for our pick of the litter or head over to the HP Store to take a look at the full picture for yourself. There are even a couple printers over there, it’s pretty rad.
One more thing, make sure to apply one of the following coupon codes for the full back to school discount on select PCs at checkout: BTSSTACK5 for 5% off products up to $1,198 or BTSSTACK10 for 10% off products over $1,199.
The HP OMEN 15 laptop is purpose-built for gamers. It comes with a 9th-gen Intel i5 processor, 8GB of memory, 256GB SSD storage, and a mighty GTX 1650 that should be more than enough to run the latest games on high settings. Formerly $1,000, it can now be yours for $712 with coupon code BTSSTACK5.
If you’re feeling flush, you can upgrade to an RTX 2060 for mobile real-time ray tracing, and with 20% off the sticker price that’s still a bit of a bargain at just under a grand.
The HP Spectre X360 may be a slim 2-in-1 fit for on-the-go creatives, but within that versatile frame also sits an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q. Paired with Intel’s hexacore i7 8750H, this slender machine is capable of a modicum of gaming performance in many of today’s most popular competitive titles.
Right now you can grab this stylish kit for $340 off with coupon code BTSSTACK10 at checkout. That will net you a 15″ 4K IPS panel well-suited to cross-media productivity – although you’ll want to drop the resolution in-game to get playable frame rates out of its GTX 1050 Ti.
This laptop comes with a Ryzen 5 APU, which is still a competitive quad-core processor despite being from the last hardware generation, and it’s backed up by decent graphics power from the Vega graphics silicon. You also get a 256GB NVMe SSD into the bargain.
Knocked down a whopping 63% from $1,300, this powerful laptop is cheaper than ever. You can claim it for your own at $484 with coupon code BTSSTACK5, though you might want to pick the display upgrade you’ll find under the ‘customize’ menu – you can add a 1080p screen.
If you yearn for an immersive gaming experience, the OMEN X 35 Curved Display might satiate your appetite. This monitor features a WQHD 3440 x 1440 curved panel to keep your periphery in the game.
It’s also rated up to 100Hz and comes equipped with Nvidia G-Sync, making for a gaming monitor that is not only impressively broad – as we all aspire to be – but buttery smooth and stutter-free with green team tech, too. That could all be yours for $1,050.
On the hunt for a new monitor? The Pavilion 32 is a solid option, with a generously sized 1440p VA panel and HDR. While it features the industry-standard 60Hz refresh rate, it also supports AMD FreeSync, a technology that reduces tearing and stuttering by synchronizing the screen’s refresh rate with whatever you’re doing on the computer. Normally $450, you can get it for $330 in the HP sale.
Another option for those who enjoy big-screen gaming, OMEN’s 1440p, 32-inch display comes with FreeSync and a higher refresh rate of 75Hz. The 15Hz bump may not sound like much, but is noticeably superior to gaming at 60Hz. Pick it up in the sale for $330 – a 23% discount.
If you want to keep up appearances of school work, the HP 23ER could be a viable alternative to the above. This 23-inch IPS panel offers a FHD 1080p picture for impressive colour. However, you will have to sacrifice refresh rate during those occasional breaks from studying.
This monitor comes in at $130, a 28% discount, and there are also 25- and 21.5-inch alternatives available.
What’s the use in that super-fast gaming monitor if you’re still rocking a roller ball rodent? Instead you could kit your gami- studying PC out with this 16,000 DPI optical-mechanical gaming mouse with a rapid actuation three times the speed of traditional mechanical switches.
This mouse could be deadly in the right hands, and it can be all yours for $70, or 18% off the listed price.
If you’re in the market for a new keyboard, look no further. $80 is a great price for a mechanical gaming keyboard anyway, but the Omen Sequencer is also on that optical switch hype, boasting light-powered switches for faster actuation. This means much faster response times – up to ten times greater than traditional mech keyboard switches. Targeted at high-performance twitch gamers, you know who you are…
If you want a pre-built rig that’s delivered straight to your door capable of fantastic high frame rate, 1080p gaming, then look no further than the OMEN Desktop PC. Within this rig you’ll find a hexacore Intel Core i7 8700, 1TB of HDD space, and an Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti. A capable combination for $1,045.
One quick note: you may want to upgrade the memory within to two 8GB sticks for a total of 16GB. That’ll be another $75 on the side.
The striking OMEN Obelisk is both a stylish centrepiece for your gaming desk and an imposing statement at your next LAN party. Ray-tracing ready with an RTX 2060, plus the option to upgrade to an RTX 2080 Ti for the most powerful gaming performance on the planet, it’s got the walk to back up the talk.
The Back to School deal takes this rig down to $1,200, a $300 saving, but don’t forget that coupon code at checkout takes it down to $1,080.
Those are the best deals we spotted, but if you’re after something specific do head on over to the HP Store to browse for yourself.
