Can’t wait? HP Labor Day sale includes laptops and PCs ready to ship
With the ongoing component shortage in the tech world, you may have noticed that buying new devices is a bit tricky. Many laptops are on backorder or take a while to ship from the time you order them. If you need a laptop for the new school year, it’s not the best time to deal with those delays. To help with that, HP has highlighted some of its own devices that are ready to ship, many of which are part of its Labor Day sale lasting through September 11.
If you need a new laptop, desktop, or monitor as soon as possible, there are some options you can get right now, and they’ll ship within one business day. On top of that, because of the Labor Day sale, they’re also cheaper right now. Here are some of the deals you can find on HP’s online store.
Starting with laptops, HP has a handful of Chromebooks for consumers and business users alike. For younger students or simpler workloads, these are solid options at an affordable price. Here are the ones you can get on sale right now:
