Gaming laptops are super-expensive, right? Well, not in the run up to Black Friday with the likes of HP’s Black Friday Sneak Peek sale offering up to 63% of selected products. Dayyym… This HP Omen gaming laptop is a particularly shining example of the sorts of goodies you can pick up even before the blackest of all Fridays has had a chance to muddy our calendars.
The Omen range of gaming laptops blend performance gear with HP’s gaming aesthetic, and this Omen Laptop 15t provides an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU and a 9th Gen Intel Core i5 processor with four cores and a 4.1GHz Turbo clock speed. Not only that, but you can spec it out with a FullHD 144Hz screen for the slickest of mobile experiences.
And with a configured price tag of just $820 that’s not a bad price for such a funky-looking gaming laptop. Especially when you consider that it’s some 23% cheaper than its original $1070 list price. When you can get a genuine gaming laptop for under $1,000 you know you’re getting into Black Friday PC deals territory.
The glorious 15-inch 144Hz IPS panel is one of the draws of this deal, offering color reproduction that you won’t see in any cheap laptop panel. But if the refresh rate of your 1080p screen isn’t an issue for you, or the thought of saving another $70 on the deal price has too great a pull, then you can switch to a plain 60Hz FullHD IPS screen instead. And that drops the price down to less than $750. Bargain.
That might also give you a little cash to play with and maybe even an opportunity to expand on the 256GB SSD that the Omen Laptop 15t comes with as standard. Another $40 will net you a 1TB HDD with a 16GB Optane accelerator, or you could go big and grab a 512GB SSD with a 32GB Optane boost for an extra $140.
If you’re feeling really fancy you could even upgrade the Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU – a decent mainstream 1080p gaming card – to a ray tracing happy RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. The possibilities…
There’s no time limit on this deal, it’s just there for as long as there’s stock. But if you act fast you’ll still be able to get this little lappy shipping before Christmas Day.
