In the vast and competitive PC market, few brands have stood the test of time like HP. That’s no mere coincidence: HP (formerly Hewlett-Packard) was an industry leader during the PC revolution that brought computers into millions of homes during the late 20th century, and in the 21st, the brand is still offering up some of the best machines money can buy. Today, you’ll find the HP logo gracing everything from budget-friendly Windows laptops and Chromebooks to cutting-edge 2-in-1s and beefy gaming machines, so whatever you’re after, HP is sure to have it. We’re here to help you find it with this hand-picked half-dozen of the best HP laptop deals available this month.
It’s not hard to see why there are so many great cheap laptops featuring the HP logo flying off the shelves with so many people now studying and working from home. This highly affordable HP workhorse combines the speed of an 11th-gen Intel Core i3 processor with a 15-inch HD display that’s the perfect size for all-day use if those smaller 11- and 13-inch laptops are leaving you feeling boxed in. That CPU works with 8GB of RAM, a nice fast 256GB SSD, and a generous battery life that make it an ideal everyday companion for work, entertainment, and web browsing on the go.
If you’re looking for the sweet spot between price and performance and not interested in paying for bells and whistles you don’t really need, then you should grab this super-cheap HP laptop right now.
When it comes to affordable workhorse computers, HP makes some of the best. This Pavilion x360 14-inch 2-in-1 is one such cheap HP laptop, but one that punches well above its weight with its 11th-gen Core i3 CPU, 8GB RAM, and a nice fast 256GB SSD. Straightforward specs to be sure, but very good ones for working, studying, web browsing, and general daily use, with the added versatility of its 14-inch HD display also being a fold-flat touchscreen and its built-in audio engineered by Bang & Olufsen.
This cheap HP laptop deal rings in at a great price for a modern 2-in-1. With specs like these, you’re getting a lot of laptop for your money.
If you like inexpensive laptops but are willing to trade things like 2-in-1 functionality for a sized-up display, this high-value HP 17 Laptop is perfect. This Windows 11 computer comes with a 17.3-inch 1080p screen, an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, a nice fast-loading 256GB SSD, and a full 8GB of DDR4 RAM — a worthy upgrade over the 4GB you often find on cheap PCs. The fact that it’s one of the better 17-inch laptops (a woefully underserved market) out there right now is just icing on the cake.
This cheap HP laptop is perfect for remote work, light gaming, and pretty much all other basic computing needs, making it one of the best plus-sized machines you’re going to find for the money.
HP is most well-known for its work-focused laptops for students and professionals, but it makes some pretty solid gaming PCs as well. The 15-inch HP Victus is a solid example of what modern gaming laptops have to offer, and this one delivers plenty of juice for gaming with its Ryzen 5 CPU, Radeon RX 6500M graphics card (a very solid budget-friendly GPU for 1080p gaming), and 16GB RAM.
On top of that, you also get a 512GB SSD for your games and other software, and the 15-inch 1080p 144Hz display is good to go for both gaming and all-day use. You can grab this fast HP laptop for well below the $1,000 mark, making it one of the better gaming laptop deals to be had for less than a grand right now.
No roundup of HP laptop deals would be complete without one of the brand’s best, the HP Envy x360. This mighty laptop represents the pinnacle of modern Windows ultrabook design, boasting a beautiful 15-inch touchscreen display, a gorgeous look, rugged build quality, and generous all-day battery life.
These premium laptops can get pricey, though, but this model is an solid value at a price that fits within our budget — and with an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 12GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD, it’ll last you for years to come. It’s one of the few professional-grade ultrabooks you’ll find for less than a grand, too, with ongoing HP laptop deals bringing this unit in at a price that’s comfortably below the $1,000 mark.
Many gaming laptops make a lot of compromises to fit powerful hardware into a slim clamshell frame, a situation often made worse by lackluster build quality. That can be a problem with some PCs, but not this one: This upgraded HP Victus laptop is one of the best notebooks you can find with hardware like this for around a grand, not to mention one that’s still suitable for working and gaming on comfortably. It comes with some very nice specs that are not usually seen at this price point: For starters, it’s packing an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, a full 16GB of RAM, and a nice big 512GB SSD.
But where this PC really shines is its GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card, which is a fine GPU for enjoying modern games. This is a solid HP laptop for work, gaming, streaming, and general everyday use, and you can grab it on sale right now for a great price.
HP’s lineup of computers is extensive, and its laptops alone offer enough variety to make your head spin. Despite being a decades-old brand, though, it has definitely kept up with the times: Today, HP makes everything from modern Chromebooks to sleek 2-in-1 ultrabooks to beefy gaming machines, and no matter your needs or budget, chances are good that there’s an HP laptop deal waiting for you.
Laptops can more or less be broken down into three categories: Traditional laptops, 2-in-1s, and gaming laptops, all of which can be found in most price brackets. After deciding which you want and determining how much you’re willing to spend (something you probably already have a good idea of), it’s time to start looking at what features you want — as well as what to expect from a cheap HP laptop that’s within your chosen price range.
These features include things like screen size and resolution, hard drive type (SSD or HDD) and capacity, and hardware (such as how much RAM you need, or whether you want a discrete graphics card that can handle gaming). More features and better hardware come with a higher price tag, of course, but if you know what you want ahead of time and set realistic expectations, you’ll end up happy with your purchase. To make things easier, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Bluetooth is a wireless standard that is ubiquitous nowadays. Your phone almost certainly has Bluetooth capability, and virtually all modern tablets and laptops, including HP laptops, pack this connectivity. Bluetooth allows you to pair your computer or another device to peripherals such as wireless headphones or speakers (to name the two most popular examples), but if you’re picky about being on the latest standard, then you’ll want to look closely at the specs of the PC you’ve got your eye on to make sure it’s not outdated — something you run the risk of if you’re looking at the cheapest of the cheap HP laptop deals out there.
Any Windows laptop can run games, but that doesn’t mean that any computer can run any game. For playing modern games at good settings, you need a laptop with a dedicated (or “discrete”) graphics card. These GPUs act almost like a second CPU for your PC, but one that is fully dedicated to handling resource-heavy graphical tasks. That usually means gaming, but also applies to jobs like video rendering.
You’ll also want a good modern CPU, ideally a ninth- or 10th-generation Intel Core processor or one of the newer AMD Ryzen processors. Many HP laptops (and even many other cheap gaming laptops you can find today) come loaded with this sort of hardware and HP also makes a number of PCs dedicated to gaming in its Pavilion and Omen lines, so you’ve got a few options if you’re looking for a beefier machine for both work and play.
Microsoft Word, being a component of the Microsoft Office suite, is paid software, and HP laptops do not include this for free. However, many do come with an Office trial, and you may even be able to get Microsoft Office for free through your school or workplace (and if not, consider looking around for a good Microsoft Office deal to save some money). If all you need is a basic word processor, Windows still includes the classic WordPad text editor, and you can also check out the free Microsoft Office alternatives.
Electronics and water typically don’t mix very well, and laptops (from HP or any brand) are no different. Although you can often rescue a laptop from a spill on the keyboard, no consumer-grade PC is fully waterproof or even what you would consider water-resistant. Even Apple MacBooks, despite some persistent rumors, are not waterproof. If you’re concerned about that, however, then you may want to invest in a waterproof cover or bag that can keep your HP laptop safe.
The vast majority of modern computers come with ports for an HDMI cable, which is the current standard for A/V connectivity (DisplayPort is also popular, although more commonly used for desktops rather than laptops). HDMI is a connection that transmits high-definition audio and video signals along a single cable, and pretty much all HP laptops feature an HDMI port which allows you to connect your computer to an external display if you want to.

Like other PC makers such as Dell, Lenovo, Acer and Asus, HP is in the midst of updating the processors in its laptops and two-in-ones. That means Intel-based models are moving from 11th-gen to 12th-gen CPUs, while AMD Ryzen systems are switching from 5000-series chips to 6000-series. It also means it's generally a good time to look for deals on older models of the best HP laptops. However, we've also seen big performance improvements with the new processors. An updated model might cost a little more but will add to the overall longevity.
Spectre is HP's top consumer laptop line so you're getting the best of the best with this 16-inch two-in-one.
Of course, a premium two-in-one like the Spectre x360 comes at a relatively high price; it starts at around $1,200. The top-end configuration we reviewed was good but not great considering its $2,030 price. This is definitely one we recommend getting with the 12th-gen Intel processors and Intel Arc graphics if you're going to go all-in. Read our HP Spectre x360 16 review.
HP's Victus 16 is a surprisingly robust and powerful gaming laptop that keeps up with the latest games at a more affordable price. Compared to HP's high-end Omen gaming laptop line, the Victus is more of an all-purpose laptop but still configured for gaming with a price starting at less than $1,000. HP offers several configurations with graphics chip options ranging from Nvidia's entry-level GeForce GTX 1650 up to a midrange RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6500M. We like almost everything about it except for its flimsy display hinge and underwhelming speakers. Read our HP Victus 16 review.
There are plenty of convertible Chromebooks, where the screen flips around to the back of the keyboard so you can use it as a tablet. But Chrome tablets with removable keyboards like the HP Chromebook x2 11 are still a rarity. It offers long battery life and performance that rises (slightly) above the competition. The main downside is that it's expensive; the model we reviewed is $599. However, that price did include both the keyboard cover and USI pen and it's regularly on sale for $200. If you're interested make sure to wait for one of those deals. Read our HP Chromebook x2 11 review.
If you're making a laptop aimed at creatives, it's not enough to just put discrete graphics and a strong processor in a slim body. The extra performance really should be paired with a good screen, and that's what you get with the HP Envy 14. The laptop's 16:10 14-inch 1,920x1,200-pixel display not only gives you more vertical room to work, but is color-calibrated at the factory and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The result: a well-rounded option for creatives looking for on-the-go performance at a reasonable price. This model is due for a refresh, though, so keep an eye out for updated models.

The SEC’s accurate announcement of $1.8 billion in fines against 16 financial institutions over electronic communications violations, as covered in a Barron’s Advisor article by Andrew Welsch, have revealed widespread and firmwide compliance failures at all levels.
Maintaining records of advisor-client interactions may seem an arcane area of financial regulation, but the SEC views these requirements as sacrosanct. “Record-keeping requirements are core to the commission’s enforcement and examination programs,” said Gurbir S. Grewal, director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, who added that the ability to examine a firm’s books and records is essential in carrying out the regulator’s mission of protecting the investing public and ensuring market integrity.
With Grewal on record advocating for harsher penalties in cases of misconduct, I suspect these settlements are just the first in a series of actions involving SEC registrants with similar books and records and electronic communication responsibilities. It would be a mistake to simply write this off as another case of financial institutions not complying with rules and regulations. There is more nuance and complexity at the core of these infractions centering on the convergence of human behavior and technology.
Fundamentally, these cases involved employees communicating official business over unauthorized or ineffectively monitored personal devices and technology platforms. It is simply more challenging to comply with books and records requirements when it comes to electronic communications. While firms can prohibit employees from using personal devices and limit them to communicating via business channels alone, new communication technologies are proliferating and ubiquitous.
Clients may prefer that firms communicate with them over these platforms, putting more pressure on adoption. And since both employees and clients use these technologies in other parts of their lives, the risk is high that they will inadvertently use them for business communications on occasion because it’s instinctive and easy.
A potential solution would allow employees to use personal devices and platforms, but monitor them to comply with the securities laws—but this approach is complicated by accessibility and privacy considerations. Firms can train employees to monitor off-channel business communications and have them attest to compliance, but is that enough given today’s level of SEC scrutiny?
The reality is that traditional policy-making and oversight activities no longer suffice. SEC-registered firms facing the prospect of exams, investigations, and potential enforcement actions must get this crucial element of record-keeping and electronic communications right. In order to do so, three key takeaways from the accurate regulatory enforcement actions should be addressed immediately.
Act now. These fines are just a shot across the bow, and although they involve broker-dealers, investment advisors should expect to be targeted since they have similar record-keeping responsibilities. There have already been cases involving money managers for similar record-keeping violations. All financial firms should consider comprehensive reviews of their policies, procedures, and systems for retention of electronic communications on personal devices and how they handle noncompliance by their employees.
Invest in compliance technology and data analytics. Compliance teams need adequate resources and regulatory technology to keep pace with the proliferation of electronic communication technologies. Now is the time for firms to evaluate whether they are adequately investing in compliance technology and data analytics to get the job done.
Strengthen compliance culture at the top. The enforcement actions make it clear that senior staff were aware of employees communicating on non-monitored channels and looked the other way. This undermined the ability of compliance teams to do their job. When leaders ignore the rules, it sends a message to employees that the rules are not important. Management needs to set the right tone at the top by complying themselves, imposing meaningful sanctions for violations, and providing their compliance teams with sufficient resources to comply with laws and regulations. This is crucial not only to avoid SEC scrutiny but to protect a firm’s brand and reputation.
Financial firms must fix this issue. The resources, expertise, and technology to do so are available. Don’t wait for the regulators to knock on the door.

Virtual reality, or VR, has become more affordable in accurate years, but it’s still not the cheapest medium to get into – meaning finding the hottest VR headset deals is important.
Luckily, Amazon has a new offer that reduces the price of the excellent HP Reverb G2 VR headset to just $490 (opens in new tab), saving users $109 – that’s 18% off the RRP.
For that price, users get access to HP’s latest headset, which is remarkably comfortable, as well as all required accessories and a pair of its impressive motion controllers. In fact, the HP Reverb G2 earns a spot on our rundown of the best VR headsets.
Now, this isn't quite as good as the deal we posted last week which saw the Reverb down to just $400 (and that deal is still live (opens in new tab)) but we know some people just prefer shopping on Amazon, so we've posted this one too.
Unlike the Meta Quest 2 (opens in new tab), the headset connects to a PC and is compatible with Windows Augmented Reality and Steam VR right out of the box. That means you can use it for working in Microsoft’s own supported AR and VR apps, but can also use it to play incredible VR games like Half-Life: Alyx, Elite Dangerous, and plenty more through Steam.
The required cables are in the box, too, and the latest version offers four built-in cameras for more accurate tracking through whatever apps you’re in.
With a rating of 3.7 stars out of 5 (opens in new tab), many have noted the clarity of the impressive 2160x2160 resolution per eye, but some have noted it can be tricky to set up depending on the game or application you want to run.
At the other end of the VR spectrum, if you'd prefer to buy you or your child something educational and fun in the VR world then Amazon is offering a saving of $10 on a Bill Nye VR Science Kit (opens in new tab). This set, which includes a variety of scientific experiments, offers VR goggles that link to an iPhone or Android device for an interactive learning experience.
User reviews are positive, with a 4.5-star rating (opens in new tab) and praise for the number of included pieces of apparatus and the adjustable VR goggles.
