Woot offers VR-ready GTX 1060 desktop for $699

The HP Omen 870 desktop with GTX 1060 has dropped to a low price of $699 for a today-only deal as HP looks to clear out its older models

HP's Omen gaming PC lineup does not have the reputation of being cheap. Aside from holiday sales, they simply don't go on sale either and even when they do, you can only expect discounts of 10% or less. That's why it's so surprising to see an HP Omen desktop with a GTX 1060 video card pop up today for only $699.99 - one of the best gaming desktop deals of the Summer.


The deal is from Woot and is a July 12 only offer. There's a limited time and quantity, so you'll need to pounce on the offer fast to pick up the $699.99 HP Omen 870 desktop. It sports a GTX 1060 video card with last years Intel 6th gen Quad Core i5-6600 processor. Perfectly upgradeable for the future and gaming ready right out of the box at a bargain price.

HP Omen 15t Gaming Laptop Deals

The HP Omen 870 is an older model of the Omen Desktops now being replaced by the newer HP Omen 880 series. Another Omen 870 deal you'll find is directly from HP with the same GTX 1060 as the Woot deal but with a better Core i5-6600K processor (overclocking) now $850 after coupon. To pay that same $850 for the brand new HP Omen 880 base model desktop will only get you a weaker GTX 1050 video card. Unlike the HP Omen 870 deal from Woot, those sold at HP have more sticking power. They are not set to expire until Sunday, July 16 and could be extended (as HP often does).

Switching gears to HP Omen gaming laptops, the early 2017 Omen 15t is being replaced with a newer design. Not that old Omen was a hot brick, but the new model sports a better cooling fan and slicker looking design, but the prices and specs right now favor the old Omen by far. While the cheapest new Omen 15t laptop will set you back $1,000 and get you a Radeon RX 550 video card, while the older model is on sale at HP for $850 and sports a superior GTX 1050 video card.
