All of these products could be useful for students, something which HP has recognised. The company has a range of deals that are only available to students, and there are some great offers in both the US and UK. Here’s everything you need to know.

Top tips on student saving

Make sure to compare HP’s student pricing with prices from other retailers. Is the discount better elsewhere? Can you get a discount directly from your institution?
Don’t pick up a laptop just because it’s available on a student discount. See if the processor and graphics card will suit your needs: Can it handle creative software like Adobe’s Creative Suite? Can it double as a gaming laptop?
Consider the display resolution and technology (LCD versus OLED) when looking at a student laptop deal. If you stream Netflix or Disney+, will movies and shows look good, or is the device mostly meant for word processing and basic browsing? See our full guide to choosing a laptop.
