It's that time of the year again, and we're already busy rounding up the overall best Black Friday gaming laptop deals for those who want to jump into the world of PC gaming. There are plenty of discounted gaming laptops available, including HP's OMEN series. These PCs are available with various levels of performance and display sizes, meaning you should be able to get a configuration that suits your needs. Black Friday has HP's OMEN gaming laptops on sale already across various retailers.
Some OMEN 16 and OMEN 17 models have been discounted by hundreds of dollars at HP's official website, while Best Buy has knocked $100 off a couple of OMEN 16 configurations. It's expected that more models will be discounted as we get closer to Black Friday proper, but if you find a suitable performance level, you might not want to wait.
These gaming laptops have come a long way in the last couple of years, with HP working hard on thermal balancing, keyboard quality, and display performance. Of course, the hardware inside is also all up to date, with the latest models sporting 11th Gen Intel Core CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 30-series GPUs. Considering the best Black Friday graphics card deals are essentially non-existent this year, a laptop or pre-built gaming PC is likely the way to go.
Where will the best Black Friday HP OMEN deals be?
HP's OMEN laptops understandably have a heavy presence at HP's official site, but we've also seen the gaming brand be sold at major retailers like Amazon, Newegg, Walmart, and Best Buy. If you happen to miss a deal at one retailer, chances are you'll be able to find it somewhere else.
- HP: The official website has the best configuration options available for OMEN laptops
- Best Buy: A few HP OMEN 16 models are already on sale ahead of Black Friday
- Amazon: Keep an eye out for older models that are further discounted for Black Friday
- Newegg: Plenty of different options to choose from with rotating sales
When are the Black Friday HP OMEN deals?
Black Friday isn't set to officially occur until Friday, Nov. 26, but this year most retailers have been rolling out the sales for the past couple of weeks. And now that we've entered what most people are calling "Black Friday week," you should have no problems finding an OMEN gaming laptop on sale. There are plenty of configurations available across multiple retailers, though only HP has options to customize before checkout. Be sure to have a look at them all so that you don't miss out on the dream setup.
