HP’s Oktoberfest sale slashes up to 25% off some of our favourite laptops

With the end of the year fast approaching, now’s a good time to start looking for that new laptop or desktop to help get you through the last few months and have you well and truly prepared for the work and play that lies ahead. And while you might be tempted to hold off till Black Friday comes round in a month, you can score significant discounts already.

HP makes some of TechRadar’s favourite laptops and is also known for its solid value in the desktop realm. Thankfully, HP’s latest Aussie sale is discounting some of these star products throughout October.

This means you can score the super sleek, stylish and powerful HP x360 Spectre for 20% off, or if you’re looking for a machine that’s more gaming beast than business mate, then you’ll find the same discount on certain Omen 15 models as well.

While you can check out everything on offer in HP’s Oktoberfest sale, we’ve done the hard yards for you and brought together some of the best deals currently on offer in Australia.
