Some early deals from the HP Black Friday Sale are already under way, and if you check out the ad scan on their site, you’ll see that these deals live now are as good as or better than what’s listed for Black Friday proper. These HP OMEN and ENVY gaming laptops and PCs listed below are mostly equipped with the latest generation Intel CPUs and GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs. You’ll be pretty hard pressed to find better prices than these elsewhere, especially from other big brands like Dell or Lenovo.
Top Pick! HP Reverb G2 VR Headset for $299
For Black Friday, HP has just lowered the price of its HP Reverb G2 headset to only $299, a massive $300 price drop from its original $599 MSRP. That’s now $100 cheaper than the base model Meta Quest 2 and is now the VR headset to get for the budget conscious. The HP Reverb G2 is a phenomenal VR headset for VR sims like racing games and Microsoft Flight Simulator because of its superior display. It’s definitely a more recommended headset for that use than the Quest Pro, even when it was listed at a higher price. The Quest’s biggest claim to fame is untethered, standalone play, and that’s something no other VR headset can emulate. But if you don’t care for the untethered aspect, the G2 is a headset that’s superior to the Quest in many ways, and not just the price.

HP OMEN 45L RTX 3080 Gaming PC Deal
The 2022 OMEN 45L is HP’s flagship gaming PC. We haven’t really seen any mainstream vendor feature a more rugged cooling system than what we see here. The 45L is a voluminous chassis with three intake fans for excellent airflow. Even more impressive is the beefy 240mm liquid cooling system (upgradable to 360mm for $80) mounted in its own compartment at the top of the case, dubbed the “Cryo Chamber”. That allows for cooling that rivals enthusiast DIY systems.

These are the newly redesigned HP ENVY, and OMEN models for 2022. With the exception of the very inexpensive HP Pavilion RTX 3060 gaming PC for under $1K, the rest of these configs are once again equipped with the best-in-class 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors. Some of these configurations are customizable; the upgrades we’ve chosen emphasize harder to DIY components like the CPU and GPU while leaving the RAM and storage options completely stock. That’s because it’s often a much cheaper route to go find the best deal on your own RAM and SSD and then install it yourself.

HP Gaming Laptop Deals
The 2022 HP OMEN gaming laptop has a sleek and understated design; if you’re not into the gaudy bling of some of the other gaming laptops out there, this might be right up your alley. All of the configurations here are equipped with an extra powerful Intel Core i7-12800HX Alder Lake processor and your choice of RTX 30 series GPUs. GeForce GPUs are still very much preferred over their AMD counterparts, mainly because although some AMD GPUs can match the 30 series GPUs in raw power, GeForce cards can handle ray tracing so much better, as well as DLSS support which can help improve performance immensely in games.
