HP has joined the deals party by knocking money off a range of tech goodies, including some of the best laptops available, 144Hz monitors, and pre-built PCs that come with Ryzen CPUs and the latest range of graphics cards.
For a great little laptop that doubles as an excellent tablet, you’ll struggle to find better than the HP Spectre x360.

You also get up to 16GB of RAM, a speedy M.2 SSD with the option of a free Optane upgrade, and a HP Pen.

It also boasts excellent build quality, with a brushed metal finish and a 360-degree hinge for switching between laptop and tablet modes.
Despite being a 2.8-pound 2-in-1, the Spectre x360 boasts a slew of features: a Windows Hello-compatible webcam, a fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 (2×2), Bluetooth 5, two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports (40Gbps signaling rate), a USB-A 3.1 port (5Gbps signaling rate), a MicroSD slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

HP has priced its EliteBook 840 G7 so low that it’s a deal almost too hard to turndown. This ultra-portable notebook is normally priced at $1,651 for the base configuration. During the Pre-Black Friday Sale, you can snag one at a whopping 60-percent discount. That’s over $900 in savings! This ultra-slim laptop only weighs about three pounds, so it is perfect if you typically lug around your notebook between meetings.
The base configuration comes equipped with a 1.6Ghz Intel Core i5-10210U (up to 4.2GHz with Turbo Boost) with Intel UHD Graphics configurable up to an i7-10610U vPro. The $660 price tag only gets you 4GB DDR4 2666, but for only $70 more, you can double that (configurable up to 64GB). The storage capacity is also a bit light with a 128GB M2 SSD, but you can double that as well for $45. Storage options go up to 1TB if you want to spend your savings.
The 14-inch FHD LED display has an 85-percent screen-to-body ratio, so it’s not quite bezel-free, but is not bad for a 12.74 x 8.45 x 0.7 inch chassis. The EliteBook also features Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, two Thunderbolt USB-C ports, two USB-A 3.1 ports, one HDMI, and a 3.5mm headphone/mic combo jack for all the connectivity you would need.
Starting at $660, the EliteBook 840 G7 is a steal.
With HP giving offering even deeper discounts on monitors, you might want a high refresh-rate display to go with your new PC. There are two on offer, both offering 144Hz refresh rates and AMD FreeSync tech (G-Sync supported).
The Omen by HP 25 offers a 25-inch TN panel, 1080p resolution, 400 nits brightness, and several ports (three USB 3.0, 2 HDMI 1.4, 1 DisplayPort 1.2, headphone jack), along with a 1ms response time, making it a great choice for competitive multiplayer action. It starts at $234, and you can get another 10 percent off using the code BFCMDA10, which knocks the price down to $211.
The impressive HP X27i 2K, meanwhile, ups the size to 27 inches and resolution to 2560 x 1440 (QHD), the ideal combination for modern games. It’s a gorgeous IPS panel with a 4ms response time, tiny bezels, HDMI 2.0, and a single DisplayPort 1.2. The monitor is down to $324, but the code BFCMDA10 reduces it to just $292.49
If you have been eyeing an HP ZBook, but the $1755 price tag was too steep for your budget, now is the time to buy. HP has the Book Power G7 marked down to a very low $789.75—a 55-percent discount.
ZBooks are designed for 3D-modeling professionals who would like a workstation in a portable form factor. The base model is equipped with a four-core Intel Core i5-10300H processor (2.5GHz, up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost, 8MB cache). If you need a little more oomph for that extra intensive workflow, you can upgrade to an i5-10400H vPro CPU. It comes with 8GB DDR4 3200 (configurable up to 64GB), but you can double that for $140.
The basic unit starts out with a 256GB SSD with several options going up to 2TB, including 256GB and 512GB self-encrypted OPAL TLC SSDs.
Connectivity is what you would expect from a workstation. The ZBook Power G7 has one Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C/DisplayPort), three USB-A, one HDMI, a headphone/microphone combo jack, Ethernet, WiFi 6, and Bluetooth.
HP’s ProDesk 400 is a small form factor PC great for everyday use. Measuring just 6.97 x 6.89 x 1.34 inches, this small form factor PC is so discrete that it’s almost unnoticeable on your desk. It can even be mounted to the back of your HP monitor if you prefer.
Don’t let its small size fool you, though. The ProDesk 400 is fully customizable for light or heavy workloads. While the sale model comes with a 3GHz Intel Celeron G4930T processor, you can upgrade the CPU up to an Intel Core i9-9900T if you have the money. The base price includes only 4GB of RAM (configurable up to 64GB), but upgrading to 8GB (2x4GB) will only cost you $41.
The ProDesk 400 comes with a wide variety of storage solutions, including HDD and SSD options. The sale model comes with a 500GB 7200 RPM 2.5-inch hard drive but ranges up to 2TB. If you prefer a speedier SSD, swapping to a capacity-equivalent 512GB M.2 SSD only raises your price to about $584. Solid-state drive options range from 128GB to 1TB.
The HP ProDesk 400 G5 is more than half off during the sale, starting at just $407.04.
How about a desktop display to go with your new ProDesk. HP has all of its monitors marked down, like the 27x Curved Display. This unit usually sells for $300, but it is marked down to $220. If you purchase it with a PC, HP will knock off another 15 percent bring your cost to just $187. This is a better deal than they were offering during Labor Day, even without the PC discount.
This 27-inch full HD LCD monitor has a 144Hz refresh rate with FreeSync technology for smooth gameplay. Its 2 million pixel, 16:9 curved screen makes games more immersive than playing on a flat panel. It has an audio output, HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity with HDCP support. It’s an all-around solid choice that will not break your budget, even at its regular price.
If you want to trade the curved for a flat screen with a little more resolution, the HP 27MQ monitor is only $30 more. The QHD display (2560×1440 @ 60Hz) is normally $330, but is on sale for $270. The additional 15-percent discount with the purchase of any PC brings it down to $220. Either way, it’s a good deal if you need a new monitor.
Elsewhere, HP is offering discounts on its extensive range of laptop and executive bags, including the top-reviewed HP Recycled Series 15.6-inch Backpack. There’s also money off its Thunderbolt and USB-C docks.
