It'll be tough to find a 17.3-inch laptop with the same Tiger Lake Core i5-1135G7 CPU and 100% sRGB IPS display for under $500 USD. The deal maximizes display quality and performance while the chassis design takes a back seat.

Walmart is currently offering the budget HP 17.3 laptop for $280 USD off the original launch price. If you're in the market for an inexpensive laptop with more screen real estate than the typical 14-inch or 15.6-inch models, then this sale might be of interest.

Perhaps the most notable aspects of the deal are its full sRGB coverage and fast Core i5-1135G7 CPU. Such options are not easy to find on a laptop for under $500 USD especially at this particular size category. Users can expect this HP system to perform nearly as fast as most Core i7 laptops retailing for almost twice the price. A backlit keyboard also comes standard.

Drawbacks include the outdated chassis design with its thick display bezels and rounded edges and corners when compared to the sharper, flatter, and sleeker Envy or Spectre models. RAM is also low at 8 GB, but this is likely expandable based on our time with similar HP 17 laptops.
