There aren't many 15.6-inch convertible laptops, but HP is here to deliver. Its ENVY line offers a premium metal chassis, 2-in-1 convertible design, and a full number pad on the keyboard for the accounting nerds. It's also very highly rated by customers and reviewers alike, and for a good reason.

Typically, this laptop runs for $1,000, but you can get one for just $800 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) during Black Friday weekend. Not sure you will like it? You can return it to Best Buy through Jan. 16 (opens in new tab) for any reason if not satisfied.

This ENVY x360 15 ships with a 10th Gen Core i7-1065G7 with up to 25-watts TDP and four cores. Graphics are powered by Iris Plus, which is an improvement over Intel UHD.

What's really interesting is storage and RAM. HP uses Intel's Optane memory here (32GB), which acts as a cache accelerator to speed up the launching of your most frequently used apps. The primary storage on top of that is a high performant 512GB SSD. And instead of 8GB of RAM, you get 12GB, just enough to give you that extra productivity power.

HP also tosses in its natural silver pen for inking since this is a full-on convertible PC. That natural silver chassis will also resist showing any dirt or fingerprints compared to the black version. There is the version of this laptop with AMD on board too. While you save $30 with that model, you only get 8GB of RAM and no storage accelerator.

If the HP ENVY x360 15 isn't cutting it for you, there are plenty of other Black Friday laptop deals happening this weekend, so be sure to check back in if you're on the hunt.
