Some Walmart stores have begun clearing out this HP Pavilion 13-an0031wm laptop for $359 (40% off from $599). It's a somewhat lower-spec, lower-price version of this recent frontpage deal.

Brickseek link: https://brickseek.com/walmart-inv...=468944420
Walmart page: https://www.walmart.com/ip/HP-Pav.../468944420
HP support page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/prod...l/24086215

Oddly, the HP page says 4GB RAM, but Walmart says 8GB, and there's a reviewer photo that shows 8GB on the box (attached).

Specs:
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 13.3" 1920x1080 IPS screen (no touch)
  • Intel Core i3-8145U 2.1 GHz dual-core
  • Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • 8GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (onboard)
  • 128GB M.2 SSD
  • 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • Backlit keyboard with navigation column (Home/PgUp/PgDn/End)
  • 2-cell, 37.69 Wh Li-ion polymer battery (nonremovable)
  • 2.88 lb
  • Ports:
    • 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, Power Delivery, DisplayPort 1.2, HP Sleep and Charge)
    • 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge)
    • 1 HDMI 1.4
    • 1 headphone/microphone combo
    • 1 multi-format SD media card reader

Known potential issues:
  • Bad Wifi instability. Possibly fixed by recent driver updates.
  • Hinge may obstruct heat vent, esp. with lid closed. Hot air deflects up the screen and into your face.

Based on specs this seems to be around regular price you would find on a deal, only difference is this are 15", this is 13" which makes it a good deal + being able to charge via USBC is awesome.... too bad the specs make it about average at best .... under $300 woulc make it a great deal.

Agreed, it's solid for the price point but overall not a real slick deal.

That was my exact thought too. Even at this price, it's not appealing enough for me to buy.

The fan on this model is loud. I bought one earlier this year and returned it.

Not me. Isn't the "asking for a friend" thing dead yet?

This isn't that great of a deal. Dual Core processors don't cut it nowadays.

It wouldn't be on clearance if people were buying them up at full price. A year ago this might have looked like $600 but looking at recent competition that price looks comical. $399 would be a fair MSRP now for this with $359 being OK. I think we're all saying the same thing... so no hot deal here. Move along folks.
