Investing in a brand new computer can often be an intimidating and pricey endeavor. Personally, I never know where to even begin and can sometimes feel daunted by high price points or tech-y specs. When I took a gander at HP’s huge Spring Sale, however, I was not only wowed by the low price points, but by the seriously impressive PCs that were available, too.

1. Save $300: This high-tech PC that lets you rotate the screen
This dependable laptop made my list for its specs, price point, and high test performance. When we reviewed the HP Spectre x360, we were seriously impressed with its long-lasting battery life (it stayed powered up for nearly five hours in our intense battery test!). We also loved the unique design of this touch-screen laptop, which has a rotating screen that allows you to easily switch to ‘tablet mode’—a feature that’s ideal for reading the news, drawing, editing photos, and more. In addition, we found that small touches, such as the wide glass trackpad and the polished chrome edges, made this PC that much more polished and sleek. This bad boy includes a 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 gigabytes of storage, and a 15.6-inch diagonal UHD display. Normally inching toward the $1,600 mark, this high-tech laptop is currently on sale for $1,249.99, giving you savings of $300.
2. Less than $1,000: This laptop that can do it all
In the market for a laptop that can do it all? Allow me to introduce you to the HP Pavilion x360 Laptop, which is discounted down to just $779.99. Similar to the HP Spectre x360, this PC has the ability to flip its 15-inch screen around just like a tablet, though it also comes with hinges should you prefer to keep it locked in place. A 10th generation Intel Core i7 processor allows for quick and easy multitasking, while dual speakers and HP Audio Boost intensifies the PC’s ability to amplify sound. Our resident laptop expert, Ashley Barry-Biancuzzo, said that it's a great pick and was especially pleased with the 16 gigabytes in memory and 512 gigabytes in storage it affords.
3. Great for entertainment: This super lightweight PC
If you’re on the hunt for a solid entertainment PC, I recommend this specced-out HP from the Envy collection. Once $1,299, it's now priced at $1,049, falling by a total of $250. The sleek design is impressively slim and lightweight, making it ideal for lengthy business trips or weekend getaways. Our laptop expert affirmed that this stylish option is uniquely lightweight at just over 2 pounds and ideal for on-the-go entertainment, thanks to its Intel Iris plus graphics and 13-inch screen that's optimized for watching pre-downloaded movies or your favorite Netflix crime doc. The high-resolution, three-way micro-edge display and quad HP speakers are especially astounding, too.
4. A gamer's dream: This seriously impressive desktop
If you’re a frequent gamer (or have one in your life), then the Omen by HP Desktop PC 880-190XE is a must-have. While pricier than some other options on our list, even when discounted to $300 below its original price, our laptop experts point out its high graphics processing unit (NVIDIA Ge-Force RTX 2080), which makes it well worth the price point for gamers looking for a top-of-the-line machine—especially with a free year-long warranty policy. It has 32 gigabytes of memory and 2 terabytes of HDD storage, plus edge-to-edge vents and a 120mm front fan to ensure this high-tech desktop stays cool during the most intense gameplays.
5. $100 off: This stylish day-to-day laptop
The HP Pavilion Laptop 15z Touch is the distant and stylish relative to the Pavilion x360 recommended above. But don't take just our word for it: It has almost 1,000 four-star reviews vouching for how seriously amazing it is. The powerful AMD processor and Vega 8 Graphics make multitasking seamless, and duties like editing pictures, videos, or designing can be performed just as smoothly. A 15.6-inch touch display and dual HP speakers work together to ensure video quality is also highly polished. Thanks to HP’s Spring Sale, you can snag this laptop for $579.99, down $100 from the original price.
6. Great for creatives: This powerful desktop PC
If you primarily use your PC to fuel creative endeavors (rendering, editing, and streaming video, making music, designing, and so on), then you need the HP ENVY TE01-0150xt Desktop in your life. Complete with Windows 10 Home 64 pre-installed, a 9th generation Intel Core i5 Processor, five gigabytes of memory and 1 terabyte of HDD storage, this PC can handle all sorts of media. This desktop machine has even been given the thumbs up by Reviewed's tech team, who were pleased with its impressive specs (think immersive 5.1 surround sound). Similar to the Omen by HP Desktop above, which we love for its processing unit and storage capacity, the ENVY Desktop also comes with brushed thermal air vents to increase airflow when you're working your hardest. Right now, this top-rated desktop PC retails for $549.99, $100 off its normal listing.
