If you're looking to pick up a budget gaming laptop for Black Friday, you should consider this HP Omen 15" gaming laptop that's on sale for only $950 and includes a free headset and gaming mouse—a savings of $450 total. It's one of the best deals we've seen on a gaming laptop so far, and it this HP Omen 15" laptop strikes a pretty good balance between affordability, size, and power.

Sporting an Intel Core i7-9750H, GTX 1660Ti 6GB video card, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, this gaming laptop isn't a slouch and should run most modern games at around 60fps on medium-high settings. The maximum resolution of the display is only 1080p, but it does refresh at 144Hz, which you'll greatly appreciate when playing quick-reflex games like multiplayer FPSes.

Like any gaming laptop, this Omen HP will have some limitations if you're trying to max out every setting—and it'll chew through battery fairly quickly too (it's rated for 6 hours and 15 minutes for "mixed usage") if you're playing games on the go. On the upside, it only weighs 5 lbs and will be easy to carry around and use in a variety of situations. As someone that owns a budget gaming laptop, I can't recommend them enough. They're the perfect intersection of power and portability.

The included headset is an Omen 800, which isn't the greatest headset ever (the mic can be a little finnicky) but it does have good sound quality. The mouse, an Omen 400, is pretty standard with two thumb buttons and a custom DPI switch located just below the scroll wheel. Again, nothing fancy but free is free.
