President's Day may have been and gone but HP is still running its sale for a few more days. In it, you can find massive discounts of up to 70% on laptops, desktops, monitors, and accessories - plus free shipping is available on all orders.
After taking a look at what's still available, we've picked out this HP 14t for $379.99 (was $549.99) as the best laptop deal in these long-running Presidents' Day sales. It comes with a 14-inch HD display, Intel i3 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. While we would have liked to have seen an i5 for this price, these are still all excellent components for the price. Altogether, they will ensure strong performance during your everyday tasks such as general browsing, multitasking at work or media streaming.
There are a couple of more affordable options, too. The first is this HP Chromebook 11a for $149.99. This is better suited to basic work or school tasks and is also more portable thanks to the smaller 11-inch screen. It's a little more expensive compared to some other Chromebook deals we often see, but it does come with a better processor than cheaper devices which will give you a worthwhile performance boost.
Another laptop worth looking at under the $300 mark is the HP 15z for $299.99 - that's a massive $170 saving on the usual price. The most important part is that it sports 8GB of RAM, a performance upgrade we love to see in cheaper devices to ensure they don't fall behind. Plus, there's a 128GB SSD, which combine to give you fast access to files and quicker load times.
For the gamers out there, we definitely suggest taking a look at the HP Omen 15 for $1,199 (was $1,299). As well as a top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 5 processor, you get an Nvidia GTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD for lots of lightning-fast storage. It's a small saving but on a well-built machine that will comfortably handle games in full 1080p HD at 144Hz.
Those are just a few of the best laptop deals we want to highlight from the sale. There are dozens more offers, including up to $150 off gaming desktops and workstations, as well as monitors from just $154.99.

HP Chromebook x360:

Save $100 – While this may look expensive for a Chromebook, we actually think it's a terrific deal when you factor in the fact this is a 2-in-1 laptop with a 14-inch touch screen. If you chose to pay a lot less you'd usually find only 11-inch machines with no touch capabilities and worse components.
