I purchased this laptop for my daughter to use in a class in graphic design. I have some background in electronics and chose this laptop solely on specifications. I don't have any personal experience with this unit but my daughter was pleased with it and said it worked fine for it's intended use...

Amazing laptop!!! Can run games like Geometry Dash at 2000 FPS, no joke. I really like that you can switch between the UHD integrated graphics and the Dedicated (In my case RTX 3060). The speed is incredibly fast, google searches are instantly. Totally worth the money!

HP makes high-end gaming affordable for all

Getting your head in the game takes more than concentration, skill, and precision, it takes a mighty computer with a slew of impressive specs to bring your game to the next level. Though gaming computers typically are more costly than your everyday computer, when you shop with HP, it’s easy to find a high-quality, high-performance budget gaming laptop that’s just one click away.
HP had earned a star-studded reputation as one of the world’s most pioneering leaders in modern computer technology. With the age of gaming growing more omnipresent than ever before, we’ve stepped up to the plate to answer the call for more affordable gaming laptops.
From gorgeously sleek HP OMEN models to our unexpectedly powerful HP Pavilion gaming series, there’s a budget gaming laptop for every avid gamer out there. HP expertise lies in our ability to build superpowered gaming laptops that do more than live up to expectations. Go beyond mediocrity and start climbing the leaderboards the moment you upgrade to an HP gaming rig.

What is a gaming laptop?

Though gaming laptops and ordinary laptops may feature the same clamshell form factor, it’s what’s on the inside that sets the two apart. Gaming laptops are specially designed to accommodate the demanding hardware specs of today’s most popular gaming titles.
Gamers require beefed-up processors, graphics cards, storage capacity, and RAM capability to load up all of the extraordinary adventures that await on their desktops.
In essence, gaming laptops are master machines supremely engineered to deliver consistently powerful performance without any lag. A great gaming laptop can play the most processing-intensive games at fast, uninterrupted speeds, while giving you stunning visuals, responsive feedback, and none of the frustration sometimes associated with such heavy computing.

What should you look for in a budget gaming laptop?

1. Processor

Think of the computer processor (CPU) as the brain of your laptop. The more intelligent the brain, the more capable the machine. When it comes down to performance, the processor has the largest impact on the potential of your PC. On you hunt for the perfect budget gaming laptop, be sure to do your fair share of research on the type of processor that best suits your needs.
HP gaming laptops feature two primary types of processors; AMD® and Intel®. Both have shining reputations within the gaming community, so you can rest assured knowing whatever choice you make is a great one.

2. Graphics card

Video game graphics have become such an important part of the gaming experience that the PC buying process has evolved around prioritizing graphics cards above the vast majority of other important specs. HP’s collection of budget gaming laptops are home to highly-lauded NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics cards, bringing your favorite fantasy worlds to vibrant, crystal-clear life.

3. Price

No matter how big or small of a budget you’re working with, price matters. Though gaming laptops can teeter into prices that are well over 1,000, HP gives you access to all of that gaming goodness for an affordable price. Our budget gaming laptops start at $650 and range higher with more impressive specs and offerings.

What lines of gaming laptops does HP carry?

Among our expansive collection of impressive laptops for all kinds of PC users are our two proprietary gaming lines: the HP OMEN and the HP Pavilion.

HP OMEN gaming laptops

Our HP OMEN series is home to some of the best gaming laptops on the modern market. Not only are these powerhouse machines supremely engineered to meet the demands of even the most serious gamers, but many are customizable - putting the power of creation into your hands.
HP OMEN laptops boast wildly high-powered 9th generation Intel Core™ processors and top-rated NVIDIA graphics cards. In order to accommodate all of the specs your favorite titles demand, HP OMEN CPUs are equipped with 4 to 6 cores enabling them to process a multitude of threads of data at once. Leave laggy load times behind when you opt for an HP OMEN budget gaming laptop.
With all of these powerhouse components working together to deliver the ultimate gaming experience, you can count on your HP OMEN laptop to grace your eyes with the most graphically stunning visuals. As video games grow increasingly more impressive, the need for a computer that can stand the test of time grows stronger. With an HP OMEN laptop in your arsenal, you can achieve the greatest win-win.

HP Pavilion gaming laptops

The HP Pavilion gaming laptop series are specially-modified versions of our well-loved HP Pavilion laptops. Built from the ground up with gamers in mind, HP Pavilion gaming laptops offer a much sleeker aesthetic to their standard HP Pavilion siblings. Choose two sprawling display sizes - 15 inches or 17 inches of immersive and stunningly vivid graphics. For added visual effect, add a splash of color into the mix with a beautifully backlit keyboard that’s also customizable.
But even better, your gaming graphics will look just as good thanks to great processing hardware. HP Pavilion gaming laptops are equipped with state-of-the-art 9th Generation Intel Core processors, all supplemented by NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. You’ll be able to play your favorite games on higher graphics settings, no problem.

What are HP’s best budget gaming laptops?

The HP Pavilion 17t gaming laptop features a sleek black chassis with enviable bright green accents. Inside, the HP Pavilion 17t houses a mighty Intel Core i5 9300H processor and an amazing NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.
If those base specs aren’t impressive enough, take control and take advantage of our Customize & Buy option. The HP Pavilion 17t can be rebuilt with your choice processor, operating system, memory, and more- all you have to do is choose.
When it comes to choosing something truly revolutionary, no computer is more impressive than the HP OMEN X 2S 15t laptop. This 15.6-inch laptop features a second 6-inch screen just above the keyboard to enhance the gaming experience. Treat yourself to an instant level-up by adding this one-of-a-kind PC into your growing tech arsenal.
