    Good stuff and good pricing.

    Hey Paul you got any info on that mouse pad? Is it just some kind of lighted mouse pad or a touch pad or some else seeing the cable and connector on it makes me hope for more.

      In reply to harmjr:

      It looks like the HP Pavilion RGB mouse pad. It's a mouse pad with RGB lighting on the edges and an extra USB port so you can plug your mouse into the pad rather than having the mouse cord drag over the desk.

      There's also the HP Omen Outpost that is a wireless Qi charging mouse pad that can charge compatible wireless mice.

    No upgrade to the desktops?

    Update, OK I see waaaaaay down at the bottom a laptop with Ryzen 3750H, but I'm not seeing any Ryzen 4800 options.

    No Ryzen laptops on the HP site. Are they really available today?

      I don't think they are available yet. I saw a few on BestBuy.com, but nothing on the HP Omen site. Very strange.

    The price seems nice. Hope that both Intel and AMD CPUs are cool enough. That one thing I don't like while playing earring the high sounds of fans. Kinda break gaming.

    I don't mean to sound unkind but you haven't added any analysis of these devices or made any opinions at all.

    Without your opinions it looks like a cut and paste HP press release.
