Note: Tech deals come and go quickly, so it’s possible some of these computer discounts will have expired before this article’s next update.

HP Omen 25L


From: HP

Was: $1,399.99

(34% off)

Coming in with a slick all-white design, this entry level HP Omen 25L has a Core i5-12400, GeForce RTX 3050, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB PCIe SSD. At the original price, the small SSD and low RAM can’t really be justified. But at this discount, it makes for a decent deal. Just know that you will probably need to invest in external storage in the future.

HP Pavilion 24


From: HP

Was: $999.99

(20% off)

The HP Pavilion 24 comes with a Core i7-1165G7, Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, 16GB RAM, a 256GB NVMe SSD, and a 1TB 7200 HDD. The 23.8-inch display is capable of 1920×1080 resolution and the whole set-up comes with a built-in webcam and decently powerful speakers. Perfect for that new home office upgrade you’ve been looking for, and a great price for a computer that comes with a monitor baked right in. As an added bonus, the Intel Iris Xe graphics card can even power some modern games at 1080p.

Dell XPS Desktop


From: Dell

Was: $1,560.98

(24% off)

The Dell XPS is the tried-and-true workhorse home computer. It has seemingly been around forever and still holds its own as one of the best budget friendly desktop computers. This model comes with a Core i7-12700, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, 16GB RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD, and a 1TB 7200RPM HDD. Don’t be turned away because of the older gen GPU either. The GTX 1660 Ti can still play games at decent quality settings, plus Dell XPS towers make it easy to swap out parts if you choose to do so later.

Skytech Blaze II


From: Newegg

Was: $1,149.99

(26% off)

Skytech doesn’t disappoint with giant RGB fans in this Skytech Blaze II deal. It comes with a Core i5-10400F, GeForce RTX 3050, 8GB RAM, and a 500GB PCIe SSD. Since this is a budget machine, we can understand the 3050, but fair warning that you will most likely need to upgrade the GPU in the future if you want this system to continue playing the latest AAA games with ray tracing. Everything else should be good enough to tie budget gamers over for a while.

Thermaltake Arctic i360


From: Amazon

Was: $1,899.99

(16% off)

Looking for something a little bit different? Thermaltake is offering a respectable discount on a few of their stunning open frame gaming desktops. We think the Thermaltake Arctic i360 is the best configuration of the lot on sale right now. It comes with a Core i5-11600K, GeForce RTX 3060, 16GB RAM (3600Mhz), and a 1TB PCIe SSD. You can probably find these same specs for less in another build, so ultimately you’re paying for the case aesthetic here. But what a case it is.

Asus ROG Strix G10


From: Amazon

Was: $1,449.99

(22% off)

This ROG Strix G10 has a unique design that separates components into two chambers to prevent heat exchange. It also comes with a Core i7-11700, GeForce RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB PCIe SSD. Solid specs for a great 1080p gaming build!

Legion Tower 7i


From: Lenovo

Was: $2,329.99

(24% off)

When you think of Lenovo, you probably imagine rather spartan productivity machines used at work. But they also make some decent gaming rigs and right now they are on sale just in time for back-to-school. This Legion Tower 7i comes with a Core i7-11700K, GeForce RTX 3070, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB PCIe SSD. It also has liquid cooling, plenty of RGB, and includes 3 months free of Xbox Game Pass. Not bad for the same company that makes your dad’s unexciting work laptop.

HP Pavilion


From: Newegg

Was: $1,379.00

(34% off)

While HP is having some killer deals of its own right now, it’s actually this HP deal from Newegg that caught our eye. Inside you get a Core i7-11700, Intel UHD 750 integrated graphics, 16GB RAM, a 1 TB PCIe SSD, and a 2TB HDD. With the solid Intel 11th-gen CPU and the massive amount of onboard storage, this is a home office productivity dream. Plus they even throw in a DVD-writer—if you can still find a use for it.

Velztorm Aciex


From: Amazon

Was: $5,199.99

(29% off)

This is a completely stacked gaming desktop with top of the line everything. The Velztorm Aciex comes with a Core i9-12900K, GeForce RTX 3090, 64GB 4800Mhz RAM, 1TB PCIe SSD, and a 2TB HDD. It also has a 360mm liquid cooling system and of course, RGB. The obscene amount of screaming fast RAM seems like overkill if you’re not dabbling in content creator or machine learning on the side, but those who can afford it probably won’t care. Deals like this on boutique gaming machines are rare, so if you have the money to drop on this tricked out system, why not go all in?

SkyTech Shadow 3.0


From: Amazon

Was: $1,599.99

(25% off)

SkyTech gaming PCs have been heavily discounted recently and that is only good news for people in the market for an RGB gaming PC. This SkyTech Shadow 3.0 model packs a last-gen Ryzen 5 3600, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD. This should be a very capable 1080p gaming machine for a reasonable price.
