You might feel like it’s the hottest month of the year and summer is going to last forever, but it’s not. Sorry. Despite what Alice Cooper may say, school’s not out forever, and you know what else isn’t going to last indefinitely? The HP Back to School sale’s sweet deals – so you ought to get moving on one fast in preparation for the new semester.
Luckily, we’ve already picked out all the best Back to School gaming deals for you, so make sure to check them out. But, right now, it’s time to delve a little deeper into what makes one of our top picks, the HP Spectre x360 15t Touch, a mighty fine slim machine for a student about to tackle the new school year. Or anyone, in fact – you needn’t let those whippersnappers take all the best deals for themselves.
The HP Spectre x360 stands out as one of the deals to consider thanks to its smart blend of CPU and GPU chops, all located within a compact frame. The Intel i7 8750H is sprightly enough for a little multitasking, and the GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q can get you by with more graphical grunt than you’d expect from such a slight shell.
A quick game of CS:GO or League of Legends is well within this GPU’s wheelhouse. So long as you’re not afraid of dropping the resolution down to 720p, or sticking the graphics fidelity onto the lower settings, you can even play some beefier, demanding titles on this lightweight kit.
The Spectre x360 is equipped with a 15.6” 4K IPS. Yep, you don’t have to worry about pesky panel real estate with this one, it’s raring to put those 8,294,400 pixels to good use in some school photo-editing work or extreme file management on-the-go. Student stuff. This display is also fully flippable, the Spectre is a 2-in-1 after all, so you can also use it as a handy tablet or sketchpad if required.
And one last note, this laptop is fitted with an NVMe SSD, the fastest SSD protocol going, in 512GB fare by default. That makes for a responsive system that should leave you enough space for a couple documents and a couple games.
The HP Spectre x360 15t Touch is now just $1,260, with the BTSSTACK10 coupon code knocking 10% off the sale price for total savings of $340. You can check out the Spectre x360 in the HP Back to School sale here. Oh, and that bundle also comes with a free Spectre Bluetooth mouse, too.
If this one isn’t exactly your bag, don’t worry. There’s plenty more where that came from over in our roundup of best picks from the sale in our HP Back to School deals guide, or head to the store directly to browse for yourself.
