The PC market is hot right now, with a combination of factors at play: sky-high demand for laptops and desktop PCs, a global chip shortage, and new CPUs and GPUs on offer from AMD, Intel and Nvidia.
HP can strive in this scenario, as one of the biggest global tech manufacturers, they’re currently offering up to 47% discounts on select products through the HP Store, with limited time deals throughout the day each day, and free shipping on all orders.
Here are some of the highlights so far. Some of the deals are available for a limited time, while others will appear during the weekend and on Monday…

HP Neverstop Laser 1001nw
The Neverstop is meant to do one job, and do it really well. Currently discounted to $249.99, this is a no-frills wireless laser printer for black-and-white documents.
It’s been very high rated by users (Amazon: 4.3 stars with over 1,400 reviews), it can print up to 21 ppm (pages per minute) and the included toner tank is good for up to 5000 printed pages. This is lowest cost per page on HP laser printing at less than 1 cent per page.
Two cost-effective displays: HP U27 4K Wireless Monitor ($455) and HP 27fw 1080p ($215)
