HP Omen 15 (2020) for $1599?

Hello Everyone,

My 2014 Razer Blade has given up the ghost and I'm suddenly in the market for a new gaming laptop. I know it's not an ideal time with the nvidia 3xxx parts on the way, but that's just how the cookie crumbles.

After a fair bit of reading I've managed to narrow down the search and saw that Best Buy has an open box 15-ek0018ca on sale for $1,600. Would anybody happen to know if this is a good deal for an Omen? Usually I would have been living the RFD life by tracking prices, etc. but I wasn't expecting my Razer to leave me in the lurch right before the holidays. FWIW I only use it to play games (no compiling or rendering) and it will always be plugged in. At home it will be connected to an external monitor.

Link: HP OMEN 15.6" Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7-10750H/1TB SSD/16GB RAM/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070) - Open Box

Specs:

i7 10750H
2070 Super Max-Q (after some digging it seems that this model ships with a super but is often only marketed with a normal card)
16 GB 2933 (2x8)
1 TB SSD
15.6" 1080p IPS, 144hz, 7ms, 300 nits, 72% NTSC

Cheers!
