Greetings,

I was shopping for a gaming laptop and stumbled across this deal. This is hands down the BEST price I could find on a 2070 equipped laptop.

This model is an add to cart so you CANNOT customize it.

HIGHLIGHTS
i7 10750H
RTX 2070 (usually a $600-$800 option)
144hz IPS screen (decent color accuracy according to 2019 reviews)
$1299.99 marked down from $1349.99
it does have a 2.5in drive bay

DOWNSIDE
Battery life is lower for this tier
keyboard had solid red backlight (no option to change it)
smaller 256gb SSD/ 8gb RAM config
2019 design (new models are out)

Even with those short-commings those are easily upgraded later for a reasonable price and the base machine should be a monster.

HP seems to be having some kind of general sale. Many manufacturers are in fact, maybe for fathers day??? I did not see an end date. Finding this very laptop took a TON of time, and it has an unusual SKU compared to others I saw on the site. Please note this is a 15" notebook not the 17" laptop


This is my first post so I may be missing typical info, please forgive any noob moves.

Regards,

combatCAT

-----------------------------------

I am seeing mostly negative comments and just wanted to address a couple things.
1-Here is a review I used to rate the machine overall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1ja4-KTydw it is not the exact model but it is for the 2020 version.
2-Inventory is low right now due to manufacture process issues, so this happens to be one of the few deals currently in stock.
3-Thought I was pretty clear but this machine is not perfect, it IS a decent deal for under $1500. Upgrades are recommended down the line, but seems like a solid starting point.

Remember, laptop specs don't mean much if it's constantly throttled.

I found this review with an older CPU but same GPU. I would imagine the thermals would be pretty similar.

Yeah this isn't really a deal. You get a good GPU but meh everything else. And flat out awful storage and memory.

Will need another 8GB stick of RAM ($30-40). Max-Q 2070 GPU, not a deal breaker but worth noting. 10750H have locked voltage and thus cannot be undervolted to reduce temps. And 256GB is quite small. Will need to upgrade the NVME drive or add a 2.5" SSD for storage.

Overall, not a bad deal for a 2070Max-Q in today's market but will need that other stick of RAM and SSD for best performance.

I've seen the y740 rtx 2070 16gb ram 512ssd on ebay brand new sold by lenovo for 1399. Infact picked up a y540 rtx 2060 for 1100 the other day. Lenovo is getting rid of the Y brand laptops to make room for the legion 5 and 7. Might as well wait to catch a deal or go for the Msi Raider deal for $1200 from costco on June 24th.

This is actually a pretty good deal if you're looking for a bare bones machine that you're going to immediately upgrade. You could put a 2TB sata SSD game drive and 32GB of ram of this for a bit over $300.

Thermal problems compared to other competitors.

Not sure why HP removed vents as part of their upgrade to streamline the Omen design. Unfortunate.

I looked up ebay listings for y740 with a 2070 and refurbs are starting at mid $1400's and the other machine is a 2060 so usually with a new machine the 2070 upgrade would be a couple hundred or more.

I am interested in the MSI raider deal tho...

Well there goes the theory that Intel forced manufacturers to make inferior cooling on AMD-based notebooks
