Black Friday is a whole week behind us, and Cyber Monday is becoming a distant memory. But retailers still have leftover stock in their warehouses — just like how you still have leftover Thanksgiving turkey in your fridge. To keep the product flowing, Cyber Monday has been extended into Cyber Week deals, and there are still plenty of savings to close it out with. Right now, Walmart is offering an HP Omen 15 gaming laptop for $849, a cool 35% off. The giant retailer is even including a gaming headset and mouse for free.
The HP Omen 15 is a solid budget gaming laptop. HP packed all the necessary power and display to run demanding games, sprinkled a little extra on top, then cut the price. The Omen is running an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card — HP was one of the first to adopt this next-gen card in a laptop. The Omen has an Intel i7 processor to match, so you can embrace high performance games without a sweat. Relying on Wi-Fi is always a concern when playing online games, but if you’re choosing a gaming laptop over a desktop, you don’t want it chained to your router. The Wi-Fi 6 available with that Intel processor will dramatically cut any lagging you’re predisposed to.
Games will look great on the Omen. While the screen doesn’t have 4K resolution or a crazy high refresh rate, the 15-inch display doesn’t really require it. The Full HD and 60 Hz refresh rate should cover it, and it’s certainly a great deal for an affordable laptop. All of that, and you even get a matching Omen 400 mouse and Omen 800 headset. It’s a full rig on one price tag.
Let’s not pretend that looks don’t matter. On top of performance, you want a sleek laptop with some bells and whistles. The Omen has a four-zone backlit keyboard with WASD highlighted — flashy but respectable. It’s under an inch thick and just over five pounds, so it’ll fit into a backpack without weighing you down.
