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.
(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
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.
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.
