Do you think there will be a better laptop deal??

I bought the $650 HP laptop with the 1050 3gb GPU and the Ryzen 5 3550 on Black Friday .. with the $100 extended warranty at BB.

I'm thinking about returning it and getting the $850 HP laptop with 1650 4GB GPU and Ryzen 7 3750 and has double the SSD space.. do you think there will be a better deal on Boxing Day or is this Costco HP about as good as it's going to get do you think? I wasn't looking at laptops on BF so I have no idea what kind of deals there were ..

GTX 1650 is significantly more powerful and the CPU is also significantly faster in the $850 version, whether those 2 things and double size SSD are worth it depends on what you are doing with it. If you wan to do some gaming on it, I would say the $200 is worth it. If you web surf, email, etc I wouldn't bother.

This was the best deal around the price range you suggested. It did sell out and no idea if it will come back but in terms of best deals, the one above is it.

As far as the two you are comparing, Costco deal is better since the Best Buy one honestly will let you play older games but struggle with most recent release unless you lower the quality. 1650 is quite a bit better and r7 is a decent upgrade over r5. The hard drive space is up to you. There is always the option of replacing the drive yourself but I don’t know how difficult it is for HP laptops (you could easily find YouTube videos tho).
