HP's latest laptop deals are offering big savings on Pavilion, Envy, Spectre, and other cheaper models as part of their new back to school sale. There are some excellent prices on offer right now, with savings reaching up to $350 off everything from everyday runners to more powerful computers. 

Highlights include this full-sized HP 15z with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD for just $389.99 (was $449), as well as $220 in savings on the HP Pavilion x360. Or, if you're looking for something with the latest i7 processor, big storage, and Nvidia graphics you'll find the HP Spectre has a $150 discount this week as well. 

Gaming laptop deals are also offering some compelling offers in HP's latest sales - from an HP Pavilion with far better specs than its new $899 price tag would suggest all the way to the HP Omen (now available for $929.99). 

We're rounding up all the top laptop deals in this week's HP sale just below, but if you want to check out more options you can find plenty more cheap laptops on sale around the web. Or, take a look at the best back to school sales going on right now. 

We're also expecting more laptops in this year's Black Friday deals so stay tuned for more savings in November.
