With its AMD Athlon Silver 7120U processor, AMD Radeon Graphics, and 8GB of RAM, it’s going to be a dependable device for doing online research and working with productivity apps.

If the size of your laptop screen is the most important factor in your purchase, the HP Laptop 17z should be on your list. Its main selling point is the big 17.3-inch HD screen, which runs at 1600 x 900 resolution — it’s as big as a display can get on a laptop. The internal components of the HP Laptop 17z are also budget-friendly, with the entry-level AMD Ryzen 5 7530U processor and AMD Radeon Graphics. It also has 128GB of storage, so you’ll have enough room for some photo and video projects before needing external hard drive deals to expand your storage.

The HP Pavilion Laptop 15t is a great budget laptop that offers a nice middle-ground between the ultra-budget options that don’t have a lot of power and the more expensive laptops below. It has an excellent mid-range Intel Core i5-1335U processor that will handle pretty much most things you throw it at, while the 256GB of storage should be enough for most. The 8GB of RAM is slightly on the lower side, although you can upgrade it to 12GB for $40, which is worth considering if you can swing it.

HP Pavilion 14 2-in-1 laptop — $550, was $580

The HP Victus 15 is one of HP’s most popular gaming laptops, and part of the reason for that is the price. This model of the Victus will let you play a lot of modern AAA games for $500 — but you won’t be playing them at their highest settings. It has respectable components for the price though: an Intel Core i5-13500H, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM. This kind of hardware will suit you pretty well for most modern games, but you may want to consider a RAM upgrade in the future.

If you’re not interested in gaming but need a powerful laptop for work, the Spectre is a line of HP laptops to look into. This particular model is an x360, meaning it can fold over into a tablet with a touchscreen. The 14-inch display runs at 2.8K resolution, which is the highest on this list. Inside, it sports an Intel Core Ultra 7 processor and 16GB of RAM, with Intel Arc Graphics. If you like speed and power but mostly work in Microsoft Office and browsers, the HP Spectre x360 14 2-in-1 laptop is a good option.

If you’re looking for a gaming laptop, then you’ll be happy to know that HP makes a few really good ones, like this OMEN Transcend. It comes with a powerful RTX 4070, which is a solid 1440p graphics card and should let you handle over 100fps with some compromises here and there. That’s great because the screen can hit a whopping 240Hz at a 2560 x 1600 resolution, so you get a lot of leeway in terms of what you want to prioritize. Besides that, you get a high-end Intel Core i7-14700HX and a whopping 32 GB of DDR5 RAM.

Get this HP 17-inch laptop for $300 instead of the usual $660
The HP 17-inch laptop against a white background.

Seventeen-inch laptops toe the line between portability and size, making them more expensive than your average laptop. Some of the best 17-inch laptops can easily cost you thousands of dollars. Luckily, there HP has come up with a very budget-friendly solution in the form of the HP laptop 17z, and while it's not one of the best laptops on the market, it is an excellent budget-oriented choice for a 17-inch laptop. Even better, HP currently discounts it down to $300 from the usual $560 price tag, which is a significant $260 off.

Why you should buy the HP Laptop 17z
As the name implies, the HP Laptop 17z has a large 17.3-inch screen running a 1920 x 1080 resolution and can hit a peak brightness of 250nits, which isn't a lot, but it's good enough for a well-lit room, especially with its anti-glare coating. You could potentially upgrade to a touch version of the screen for $30, but since it would knock the resolution down to 1600 x 900, it's not worth it, especially with a larger 17.3-inch screen. What will be worth the upgrade is taking the networking option from the Wi-Fi5 and Bluetooth 4.2 standard up to the Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 standard for an extra $20, which will make sure your laptop has a strong connection for streaming or doing online meetings and will be future-proof for at least the next 5-6 years.
