HP always has one or two PCs in their lineup each year that fly under the radar but deliver tremendous value. This is one of those PCs. It’s too good of a deal at the current $689 sale price to pass up. The sale appears to be an on again / off again thing but definitely check the HP link! Even at its usual $820 or thereabouts price tag it’s a fair price for what you’re getting here.
Performance is good and on par with other sub $1000 gaming laptops we’ve looked with similar configurations. But unlike those the display on this one is so much better.
