Save $100 off customizable HP Pavilion 15t Gaming Laptop
Customizing HP laptops means it will take time to build and shipping for me is on 07/04 (17 days out) vs. 1 business day for pre-configured models.I'm not sure if many have looked into this model yet and how it is performance/thermal wise as there are no reviews for it, but it appears to support up to...
  • Windows: Windows 10 Home 64
  • Processor: 8th Gen Intel i7-8750H
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB
  • Screen: 144Hz or 4K option (+$70, +$170 respectively)
  • Hard Drive: NVMe M.2 SSD and separate SATA drive (HDD + PCIe SSD)
  • Memory: 2x ram slots
  • Keyboard: 2 color options for backlit keys/matching lid logo (3 if you customize from the upcoming link)
  • Camera: The camera has options for FHD/IR for $30 more
  • Wireless: Wireless option includes BT 5.0 for $10 more
  • I/O: 1 HDMI 1.4; 1 headphone/microphone combo; 1 RJ-45; 1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 1 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s); 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Data transfer only)
  • Weight: 4.78 lb (Another model showed 5.18lbs)
--I chatted with an HP sales rep about some of the specs and they said this:
Quote :
"Yes, the HP Pavilion Gaming - 15t Quad w/ 2GB gfx is customizable model you can add/upgrade the memory and harddrive laptop in the future."
Quote :
"Customer, the maximum memory the laptop can support is 16GB."
I could not however find out which Wireless modules or screen panels they use.

The starting $799 config is as follows:
  • Windows: Windows 10 Home 64
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-8750H (2.2 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz, 9 MB cache, 6 cores)
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 (2 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
  • Memory: 8 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
  • Screen: 15.6" diagonal FHD IPS anti-glare micro-edge WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080)
  • Storage: 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA; 16 GB PCIe® NVMe™ Intel® Optane™, 16 GB PCIe® NVMe™ Intel® Optane™
  • Battery: 3-cell, 52.5 Wh Lithium-ion prismatic Battery
  • Keyboard: Full-size island-style backlit keyboard(Shadow black and ghost white)
  • Camera: HP Wide Vision HD Camera with Dual array digital microphone (Shadow black and Ghost white)
  • Wireless: 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 4.2 combo
This is not bad, fixing the storage, graphics, and screen config should be the most necessary.

Additionally if you are fine with the original spec or are mostly in it for the CPU but want a slightly better deal, there is a $899 ($40 better than configuring) deal in HP's Buy More Save More Deal when you use code 25BMSM618 on this preconfigured model which will ship in 1 business day. This also comes in the acid green color which can't be used while configuring.

My ideal configuration came to:
Total: $1129.99
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-8750H (2.2 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz, 9 MB cache, 6 cores)
  • Graphics: GeForce® GTX 1060 (3 GB GDDR5 dedicated) (+$140)

  • Screen: 15.6" diagonal FHD 144 Hz IPS anti-glare micro-edge WLED-backlit (1920 x 1080) (+$70)
  • Storage: 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA; 128 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD (+$60)
  • Battery: 4-cell, 70 Wh Li-ion polymer (+$20 Required with more powerful Graphics)

  • Wireless: Intel® 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® 5 Combo(MU-MIMO supported) (+$10)
Not a bad deal at all especially if 6 cores and 144hz panel are of interest, and an extra $100 would get you a 4K panel. If anything TB3 and fingerprint reader missing will be the biggest gripe for me.

I received the following from the most recent agent:
Quote :
"Thank you for your patience. To get a Gsync-enabled panel, there needs to be at least 120 Hz refresh and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card.You may upgrade the graphics card to the third option in the configuration."
--But every other agent said it's just a normal 144hz, and other laptops such as the OMENs mention G-Sync technology when choosing your screen options so I would assume this is not G-Sync enabled and I've yet to see anyone really get their hands on it.

Also, having g-sync will make a big dent to your battery life since g-sync and optimus are not compatible with one another. Basically with G-sync enabled panel, the 1060 will be running 100% of the time and will drain the battery super fast. If you value battery life, don't get g-sync enabled screen Big Grin.

Yea but without it, there's no way those card can push the FPS to be able to take advantage of the 144ghz.

G-Sync does not help you get more FPS.

too bad its the 1060 3 G. lots of games like watch dogs 2 and DE Human Revolution really eat up the VRAM.

I agree that those cards won't really push enough FPS to justify the 144hz. But I'm not sure that g-sync will help with FPS.

I'm not certain about this (maybe someone can enlighten us) but I don't think g-sync has much to do with the panel and more to do with the panel being hardwired into the GPU (that's why Optimus doesn't work with g-sync) on an Optimus machine it's hardwired into the integrated GPU and can then be switched back and forth. But the g-sync does take a massive dent out of the battery life because it's always running the dedicated GPU which has a much higher power consumption.

Was excited until I saw the 1060 is only 3gb. Seems like a good deal if you're ok with that.
