The HP Back to School sale is live now and full of deals on hardware and peripherals for all PC users, gamers, and creatives alike. If you like to play games on the go, or to hook up a laptop to desk peripherals, you might want to check out the OMEN 15 gaming laptop. While beastly in its own right with a GTX 1650 as standard, you can upgrade it with an RTX 2060 to create a mobile machine capable of real-time ray tracing and, with the HP sale, still keep the price under a grand.
The OMEN 15 laptop features a 9th-gen Intel i5 CPU, 8GB of memory, 256GB SSD storage, and a 15.6″ 1080p display. The standard model, as mentioned, has a GTX 1650 for its GPU – more than enough to run most modern games at high settings. With the 25% sale discount, that spec comes in at $750… no wait, actually that’s $712 with the BTSSTACK5 discount on top. Love a good coupon.
If you’d like to carry the power to trace five billion rays around in your pocket, you can replace the 1650 with an RTX 2060. This will bump the price to $950 with the same coupon code discount applied. Bargain.
You can take a look at the OMEN 15 on the HP sale here. If you fancy adding the 2060, just click the blue ‘customize and buy’ button, and select the +$250 upgrade that you’ll notice on the next page. And before you say anything, we think it’s okay to buy a gaming laptop for school.
