If you don’t really have the space to fit a whole desktop computer, then you may want to consider going for an all-in-one (AIO) solution; it will save you a ton of space, plus you don’t have to go out and buy each part individually. Luckily, there are some great early Memorial Day deals on AIO solutions you can take advantage of, such as this deal on the HP All-in-One 27, which usually goes for $850 but has been discounted down to just $450. That makes it an excellent budget pick if you just want something for the basics and don’t expect to do any complex tasks on it, like graphical rendering.

Why you should buy the HP All-in-One 27

While the HP All-in-One 27 might not be as powerful as an iMac, it does have similar dimensions, with a large 27-inch screen and a surprisingly tiny bezel, which is actually a bit smaller than the iMac’s.The screen runs a 1920 x 1080 resolution and can hit a peak brightness of 300 nits, which will be fine for a well-lit room, and you can upgrade it to a touch version for $200, but it’s probably not worth it in the long run. Under the hood, you’ll find an Intel Core i3-1315U, an entry-level CPU that should handle most basic tasks just fine, although we’d probably suggest upgrading to the Intel Core i5-1335U for an extra $125, which will give you a lot more versatility and quality of life.

Similarly, the 8GB of memory is fine for basic usage, but since Windows likes to take a nice chunk of the RAM, we’d strongly suggest upgrading to at least 12GB for an extra $60, although 16GB is probably the ideal. Base storage is not too bad at 256GB, although, again, the upgrade to 512GB will certainly be worth it, and at just $40, it’s easy to justify, with the other alternative being grabbing one of these external hard drive deals instead. HP also throws in a wired keyboard and mouse, and you have a pretty solid internal webcam for meetings, so you won’t have to purchase a separate one.

All in all, the HP All-in-One 27 is easy to recommend because it really comes with all the basics that you need, plus some room to customize if you want a bit more power. The whopping $400 does give you a bit of wiggle room if you want to upgrade, although if you’re looking for something a little different, there are other great desktop computer deals you can check out.

Alert the press! Sound the alarm! The HP 14-inch Laptop received a massive markdown from Walmart. While this promotion lasts, you’ll be able to purchase this budget-friendly laptop for just $280. That’s $240 off the normal selling price! Student laptop deals usually kick into full swing toward the end of August, but this is a great opportunity to nab a powerful PC before the back-to-school rush. 

Why you should buy the HP 14 Laptop
We love all HP laptop deals, but this one’s particularly good. The HP 14-inch N305 is powered by an 13th-gen Intel Core i3-N305 CPU, Intel UHD Graphics, and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. It’s not the most powerful laptop in the world, but you’ll have no issue multi-tasking with desktop apps or running one of your favorite PC games.

Dell’s most popular gaming laptop has a $300 discount today
The Dell G15 gaming laptop powered by AMD Ryzen.

Many years ago, if you wanted the best gaming laptop, you'd still have to deal with something large, bulky, with a terrible battery life, and a several-thousand dollar price tag to boot. Luckily, there have been a lot of advances since then, and nowadays, you can get yourself a relatively thin and powerful gaming laptop for less than $1,000. One great option for that is the Dell G15 gaming laptop, and while it usually goes for $1,000, Dell has heavily discounted it down to just $700, which saves you a whopping $300.

Why you should buy the Dell G15 Gaming Laptop
The most important part of any gaming laptop is its graphics card, and in this configuration, you get yourself an RTX 4050, which is admittedly an entry-level GPU, so it's not that powerful. Even so, it does give you access to the latest DLSS 3, which helps increase framerate in supported games, but otherwise, it's a solid 1080p gaming card. As such, the screen is 15.6 inches and runs an FHD resolution while being able to hit a 165Hz max refresh rate, which you'd likely have to make a few graphical compromises to hit. That said, you can upgrade to an RTX 4060, which will help a lot with graphical fidelity and hitting that refresh rate; plus, you get a better CPU for the extra $200, so it's worth considering.

Grab this cheap HP printer while it’s on sale for $55
The HP DeskJet 2723e all-in-one printer on a white background.

There are a lot of great printer brands on the market, but HP is probably one of the most well-known, and it has a truly wide variety of printers from which you can pick. For example, the HP DeskJet 2855e is a great all-in-one printer, which is great for those who don't need to print often and want something that is a bit more budget-oriented. Even though it's already rather cheap, HP has discounted it further from it's original $85 price down to just $55, making this one of the cheapest printers you're going to find on the market.

Why you should buy the HP DeskJet 2855e
While the HP DeskJet 2855e may not be a high-capacity printer, it's still great for prints that need to be done here and there in a normal household, especially if you're a slightly larger family. The recommended monthly print volume is between 50 and 100, which is a solid amount for the average household and probably more than most need anyway. Interestingly, it can print both black and colored prints, with the ability to manage 7.5 prints per minute (ppm) for black and 5.5 ppm for colors, which is pretty fast, actually.
