We see a lot of laptop deals in our line of work. We also see a ton of tablet deals. Of course, a combination of both device types is what we call a 2-in-1 computer, and there’s one sale that’s getting a lot of love at Best Buy right now. Thanks to a $250 discount, you can take home an HP 14-inch 2-in-1 Chromebook Plus for only $450. Normally priced at $700, it’s hard to say how long this promo will last.

Why you should buy the HP 2-in-1 Chromebook

Chromebook deals can be found just about anywhere, but we do our best to highlight the sales with the best perks. In the case of the HP 2-in-1 Chromebook, we’re working with an Intel i3-powered machine running off 8GB of RAM. Storage wise, there’s up to 256GB to work with. While this may not be the powerhouse PC you’ll use for Adobe Creative Suite multitasking, it’s strong and reliable enough to be a go-to PC at work, school, or on your living room couch.

The 14-inch WUXGA IPS screen packs in a 1920 x 1200 pixel spread. When you’re using your 2-in-1 outside on a bright, sunny day, the display does a decent job of pushing away glare. And while 250 nits isn’t overly bright, the 178-degree viewing angle means you’ll get the best visuals possible from most vantages. Not to mention the touchscreen is Corning Gorilla Glass, one of the most heavy-duty names in the world of device displays.

With HP’s fast charge capability, you’ll be able to go from 0 to 50% battery in 45 minutes. Even if you forgot your charger at home, this Chromebook should deliver up to 10 hours of performance on a full charge. There’s a 2592 x 1944 webcam that you can use for chatting with friends, family, and colleagues; which includes a camera privacy switch for disabling the Chromebook’s video feed.

Google was also kind enough to throw in an entire year of Google One AI Premium. This also nets you an extra 2TB of cloud storage that you can use as you see fit. It’s hard to say how long this markdown will last, so if you’ve been thinking about a new 2-in-1 Chromebook, your wait could be over. The HP 2-in-1 Chromebook Plus is on sale for $450 while this promo lasts.

This HP Omen pre-built gaming PC is $300 off in this Best Buy sale
hp omen 40l review 03

If you're looking for a gaming PC that isn't going to break the bank, there are a couple of solid options that don't include having to build a PC from scratch. For example, the HP Omen lineup of desktops has a lot of budget-friendly options, so if you're just starting out and don't want to spend a ton, you can grab certain configurations of the HP Omen 40L. Even better, there's a great deal from Best Buy right now that discounts the HP Omen 40L down to just $1,180 from the usual $1,480, which is a pretty great discounted price for what you're getting.

Why you should buy the HP Omen 40L
The beating heart of any gaming PC is the GPU, and in this configuration of HP Omen 40L, you get yourself an RTX 4060 Ti, which is a slight upgrade of the RTX 4060, and an excellent 1080p GPU. With it, you should easily be able to hit or surpass 100fps on ultra settings on most modern games, and if you want to go to 2K resolutions, you will have to make some compromises in refresh rate and graphics, but it should still be quite good. More importantly, you could always upgrade the GPU with one of these GPU deals down the line if you feel you need more power, which is one of the biggest benefits of a desktop.

Best Buy is selling this HP gaming laptop for just $550 today

Even though there has been a lot of progress when it comes to gaming laptops, they still tend to cost a lot of money, especially if you're on a tight budget and don't want to spend the thousands of dollars they usually cost. Luckily, HP has a great solution for you in the form of the HP Victus 15, which has a couple of solid low-budget configurations. For example, this configuration from Best Buy will let you net the Victus 15 for just $550, rather than the usual $880 it goes for, saving you a solid $330 in the process.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15
It's worth noting from the start that this configuration of the HP Victus 15 is not that powerful, as it comes with an older RTX 3050 GPU under the hood. That's an entry-level GPU from the last generation, although that doesn't necessarily make it a bad choice, especially if you're mostly interested in free-to-play games like CS:GO and League of Legends. In fact, the 15.6-inch FHD screen can even hit a 144Hz refresh rate, which implies that it's made for these types of games that are older and well-optimized for budget GPUs so that you can play them a bit more competitively. That said, the screen can only hit 250 nits of peak brightness, so you'll want to keep it away from any sunlight or strong lighting when gaming.
