Re: Presentation Question

How does my Sim give her final presentation?  She gets the option to practice, and she has done that several times.  She does not get the option to give final presentation.  Help!  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Even More Stardew Valley Characters Have Been Recreated in The Sims 4

The sims 4: all skill cheats, pokemon scarlet and violet players pick the paldea region's most forgettable pokemon, quick links, how to study for university exams, how to take university exams.

In The Sims 4: Discover University , players can have their Sims seek higher education at an esteemed university. Two colleges are available in the pack, the University of Britechester and the Foxbury Institute. The Expansion pack allows Sims to stay in dorms, join societies, take classes, and more. The coursework can be strenuous, especially the exams, without the proper time and dedication.

Every class has a final exam or assignment that Sims must complete that goes toward their final grade. The grading system is more intense than in high school, and exam scores are a huge factor in grades. If Sims fail their exams, they could fail the class and will have to retake it all over again. So, here's everything players need to know about studying for exams and how to pass them in The Sims 4: Discover University .

RELATED: The Sims 4: High School Years - How to Graduate Early

The coursework is relatively the same regardless of which university players choose to send their Sims. Sims can take up to four classes over seven days, each representing a specific Skill. Sims will have daily homework, just like in high school , and a final assignment that determines their overall grade for the semester. There are three kinds of final assignments:

  • Final Presentation

The Final Exam is the most straightforward but also the most unpredictable if procrastinated on. To study for the exam , Sims must ensure they regularly practice the Skill for the course. Additionally, they should study on a computer or at the Electromagnetic Research Archive Machine found in Build/Buy mode. Click on either machine and locate the "University" tab. From there, select "University Coursework," and the option to study for any classes with a Final Exam will appear. Players will know their Sims is prepared for that exam whenever they receive a Confident Moodlet. Finally, repeat the process for any other Final Exams.

On the last day of the term, Sims will automatically take their Final exams during their scheduled class time. Unfortunately, they sometimes become tense or nauseous due to testing nerves, so last-minute studying isn't always possible. Make sure to arrive on time to class, or Sims will have a higher chance of getting a low score. However, courses with a Term Paper or Final Presentation require more hands-on attention to pass their finals which must be done before the final term day ends.

Submit a Term Paper

There are classes in Discover University that require students to submit a Term Paper rather than take a Final Exam. Sims must use a computer to write their Term Paper, which should be done well before 6 PM on the last day to leave room for editing. From the "University Coursework" menu on any computer or laptop, Sims will find the "Term Paper" option if they have one that semester. After selecting "Term Paper," Sims will be faced with writing a term paper or submitting a plagiarized one. Nevertheless, there is a chance they will be caught plagiarizing, and it is impossible to get an A using this method.

Writing a Term Paper will take a few hours, but Sims with a high Research and Debate Skill work faster. Once the first draft is complete, the paper can be edited to improve its quality. Lastly, remember to submit the term paper on the computer whenever ready before the end of the term.

Give a Final Presentation

Sims may also be tasked with giving a Final Presentation for their final assignment. At the start of the term , if any class requires a Final Presentation, Sims will get a Presentation Board sent straight to their inventory. To prepare for the presentation, place the Presentation Board somewhere in the world. Then, click on it to pull up the "Compile Information" option, and Sims will add documents and pictures.

When it is done, they can organize it or practice presenting it to another Sim to increase the quality. Sims will know their board is as perfect as it can be when they get a pop-up saying any further editing will increase the Skill rather than change the presentation. To submit the presentation, click on the board and choose "Give Final Presentation" between 8 AM and 4 PM on weekdays. All final grades will be announced at 6 PM on the last day of the term.

The Sims 4: Discover University is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

The Sims 4 university: how to get degrees

Distinguished degrees and how to enroll explained

By going to university, your Sims can earn degrees that can propel your Sim into the career of their dreams. Better scores give you a better head start, so how do you achieve the top grades?

In this The Sims 4 Discover University guide, we will tell you how to enroll into university, where to get distinguished degrees , and everything you need to know about getting a degree . If you're looking to join the secret society, look at our  The Sims 4 secret society guide for details.

How to enrol into university in The Sims 4

Where to get distinguished degrees, how to get a degree in the sims 4 university, choosing whether to live on or off campus, managing your sim's course load, go to class and be an active participant, doing homework.

  • Term papers

To apply for university, have your Sim use a computer and select "University", then click "Apply to Universities". Your Sim will then apply for a place at both University of Britechester and the Foxbury Institute.

Your Sim will get an acceptance letter after one or two in-game days. This letter will inform you of which course places your Sim can take up. Your application status can also be checked via the computer.

Once you've had confirmation of a university place, you can enrol in the university of your choice via the computer, mailbox, or your cell/mobile phone.

Since there are two universities, your Sim will want to go to the right university for their skills and aspirations. Distinguished degrees get you an even bigger boost to your Sim's career. The University of Britechester tends to offer distinguished degrees for arts and humanities subjects, while the Foxbury Institute offers distinguished degrees for the sciences.

To gain acceptance into distinguished degrees, your Sim will need to have high skills levels related to the distinguished degree course. For example, acceptance into the distinguished Art History degree at the University of Britechester is more likely if your Sim has higher charisma, painting, and writing skills.

Below are two tables that show what courses the universities offer, as well as the organisations that can be found within each one.

The Sims 4 university guide

By sending your Sim to university, you'll likely want them to achieve the highest grades and get a good degree. Degrees can help give your Sim a big boost in the career of their choice. The rest of this guide will be focused on what you need to do to get good grades.

This might seem like a rather arbitrary decision to make, but choosing whether or not to live with other Sims on campus or living on your Sim's own can make all the difference between graduating with distinction or flunking their class entirely.

Living on their own is a good option for your Sims. They won't be distracted by messy roommates, and will have access to everything at any time they want. There's also the fact that you won't need to waste time travelling to the University Commons to get food, and the fact you can designate your Sim's home with the Study Spot lot trait to help your Sims do better in class. It's not impossible for your Sims to ace their tests in shared accommodation, but it is significantly harder to juggle a social life and intense studying.

However, there are some advantages to living on campus. You can arrive to class early, ensuring that a late mark doesn't affect your grade. Living on campus is particularly useful if you're trying to get the Academic aspirations, as being on campus to attend guest lectures and using the research archive machine can help greatly.

A decent compromise might be to put your Sims into smaller residential units for the two universities: namely Maritime Manor for Foxbury Institute or Darkwing House for the University of Britechester. This option is sort of the best of both worlds. You'll have a computer and a kitchen on-site, as well as a reduced likelihood of sharing space with a messy Sim. But the main advantage is that you're still on campus, so you  should be able to attend class early.

As Jack Torrance in The Shining wrote repeatedly on his typewriter: all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Working your Sims too hard can burn them out, so you need to strike a good balance of courses and other activities.

For every semester, your Sim has the option to take a maximum of four classes. They can either take up to four core classes, or a mixture of up to three core classes and an elective. You can choose to take fewer classes in a semester, but your Sim will stay in university for a longer time before graduating.

If you want to strike a good balance between classes , I highly recommending sticking to two core classes and a single elective: a total of three classes per semester. However, this will take 20 in-game days, or four whole terms - your Sim's entire young adulthood period - to complete. You can graduate as an adult, or you can use the relevant  The Sims 4 cheats , or the Potion of Youth aspiration reward to slow down the ageing process until you graduate.

All these classes count towards your Sim's degree, but electives give your Sim a chance to learn a skill that's unrelated to the subject of their degree.

Put simply, your Sim must attend every single class to get straight A's. Your Sim must also be punctual, arriving on time for every class. One of the few advantages to living on campus is that Sims can get to class early. They'll stand outside the lecture rooms holding their notebooks and may even use that time to finish their homework.

The other thing that will affect your Sim's grades is their current mood. Try to ensure that they're not distracted, or even in a bad mood. If they need a quick boost to their emotions, have them pack snacks or grab a snack from the coffee cart between classes.

When in classes, your Sim has multiple options. I highly recommend that you should choose to either  actively listen or  take notes if you want a high grade. This does have the side effect of reducing your Sim's fun need at a faster rate than if you  attend class normally .

Your Sim does have other options such as sleeping in class, leaving early, or chatting with students , but this can hurt your Sim's grades.

After enrolling into university, your Sim will get a homework book that they'll stash in their inventory. This little book is a key item to getting high grades.

Your Sim will be set homework to be handed in to every class session your Sim attends. This includes homework set before the first classes of term, so your Sim will have homework from the moment you enrol.

Increasing your Sim's  Research and Debate skill helps them finish their homework quickly, so if you have a spare moment, try to spend some time increasing this skill. Learn more about them in our  The Sims 4 skills guide.

The Sims 4 university guide

Completing coursework

Throughout each term, your Sim will also need to complete coursework. These come in three varieties:

I cannot stress enough the value of getting your term papers and presentations done before each new term starts. By doing this, you'll have some free time to spend on boosting your Sim's fun meter, since actively listening or taking notes during lectures will reduce the fun meter harshly. Your Sim will also have more time to dedicate to extra studying through the computer.

After completing the last day of classes and finishing your assignments for each term, your Sim will be shown their final grade for that term after a few hours.

How to prepare presentations

When a term starts, you may find a presentation in your Sim's inventory. This is an empty green board that needs to be completed before submitting. To work on it, simply drag the item out of your Sim's inventory and place it on their lot.

The first step is to complete all the information on the board. Once this is done, you'll want to organise the board and refine the information to create a better quality presentation. If your Sim can call upon other Sims to get feedback, they can help refine it further.

After this is complete, make sure you practice your presentation at least once. You can practice it more times to increase your charisma skill, but it only needs to be done once to get the top grade.

Once you're satisfied that you've done all you can to make the presentation a great one, you'll need to present it. Your presentation can only take place between 8am and 4pm on weekdays . You must also present it before the final day of classes for that term. Click on the project, either where you placed it or in your inventory, and select "Give Presentation" to present it. It'll take two in-game hours to finish giving your presentation.

How to write term papers

All your Sim needs to write a term paper is a computer. Term papers can be written from the start of term.

To have your Sim write their paper, go to any computer and under the University tab, you'll find the Coursework section. Your Sim will then spend a few hours writing the paper, though it can be done in more than one sitting. Don't be tempted to submit a plagiarised term paper as you won't get the top grades for it. There is also a risk of getting caught and suspended for doing so.

Once your Sim has written the first draft of the paper, keep editing the term paper until you get a notification to say that you won't be able to make the paper any better. You could keep editing the paper to improve your knowledge, but this is a waste of valuable time.

You can then safely submit your paper. If you want to see how good it is while you work on it, hover your mouse over the submit button. You'll see a word that indicates the quality of the paper: poor, normal, or excellent. If it's excellent, submit that paper!

Much like homework, a high research and debate skill helps your Sim finish their term paper quickly. A good tip here is to plan ahead and have your Sims as teens work on the research and debate skill as they go through school. This  can be done cheaply in the home by practising debate in the mirror, which is good because you don’t have to buy an expensive and space consuming debating podium.

How to study for final exams

If your Sim's assignment for the term is to take the final exam, your Sim needs to study all term  if you want the top grades. You'll want to study at least twice in each class that has a final exam. There are a few ways to study for an exam:

  • The first is to use your computer. In the University section, select "University Coursework", then select "Study".
  • Your Sim can also study using the university's research machines in either the university library or in the commons. Select the "study for..." option.
  • Finally, your Sim can purchase textbooks from any bookcase or from the kiosks in the quad at the university. Each one costs §700.

When you have multiple final exams coming up, you may need to prioritise which modules you want your Sims to study for. They can email professors about their progress on each module, finding out which ones they're doing better or worse in. There’s no point doing this too early in a term, as the professors will say that it’s too early to tell.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

11 13 19 4 26 20 AM

Presented by EA Game Changers

Getting into university is one thing; excelling in university is quite another. For most people, the joys of university lie in balancing work with pleasure. A little studying here, a little partying there, leading to an overall well-rounded university experience.

This guide is not for the casual university student. This guide will walk you through how to throw yourself completely into your education in order to achieve the best grades (and the best future) possible. Throw away your juice kegs and break out those textbooks because school is all you’re going to know for the next three terms.

For a breakdown on scholarships and applying to university, see our guide, Discover University: Applying to University !

Class Selections

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Of course, it all starts with enrolling and selecting your degree and classes. No matter which degree you pursue, you’ll have to select up to 4 classes per term. Classes change every term so you’ll see new ones available every time you select your classes at the start of term. You can’t change which classes you’ll be taking for your degree; you can only choose the number of classes.

However, Sims have the option of enrolling in 1 elective each term. Electives are fun classes that focus on skills outside of your degree and you will be able to select which elective your Sim will take that term. There are all kinds of electives that span a wide variety of skills. Electives are fully integrated across all packs, so depending on which add-on content you have installed, you may see different electives for skills from different packs.

Electives are optional; your Sim doesn’t need to take any electives at all, but if they do choose to take an elective, they can only take up to 3 other classes. Sims are limited to 4 classes per term in total, so either 4 classes, or 3 classes and 1 elective.

Our recommendation? Take 3 classes and 1 elective every term for maximum academic success. Electives still count as credits towards your degree so taking an elective doesn’t hurt your progress at all, plus your Sim will graduate with a few extra skills thanks to the electives they took.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

One term last 5 working days. There is no way to shorten or lengthen a term. They are fixed periods. Sims can begin a new term anytime during the week, but weekends don’t count as term days. If your Sim starts a new term on a Friday, the term won’t end until Thursday the following week. Starting a new term in the middle of the week can be a good academic strategy for dedicated students because it will give them the weekend to catch up on homework and final assignments.

How many terms your Sim needs to complete in order to graduate is entirely dependent on how many classes they decide to take per term. A Sim needs to earn 12 credits in order to graduate.

Here is the breakdown of how many terms your Sim will need to complete based upon their classes:

  • 4 classes per term = 3 terms (15 working days)
  • 3 classes per term = 4 terms (20 working days)
  • 2 classes per term = 6 terms (30 working days)
  • 1 class per term = 12 terms (60 working days)

These calculations are based on the assumption that your Sim completes the same number of classes every term. It is possible to take a different number of classes each term (4 classes one term, 2 the next term, for example), in which case the number of terms needed to graduate will vary.

Even if a Sim only takes 3 terms to graduate, they will still spend the majority of their young adult life in university; however, unlike past Sims games, your Sims are not trapped on campus with no way to work or live a life outside of university. Sims can live wherever they want, have a job, and raise a family while going to school, so this balances things out. If the length of university is not ideal for your play style, we recommend turning aging off in the game options while your Sim is in university. That way, they don’t lose any time to climb a career ladder or pursue other life goals.

Of course, you will want to be taking 4 classes every term for maximum efficiency. Sims who don’t mind sacrificing their social life and plan to devote all their time to their studies should take a full course load every term.

Attending Classes

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

It’s important to actually attend class in order to get the most out of your university education. Missing class will hurt your grades. Sims in the area will autonomously try to get to class a little early. Sims who’ve arrived to class early will wait outside the building with the other early bird students. This can be a good time to get some last minute homework finished or to quickly finish the rest of that coffee and snack you purchased to-go at the cafe vendor.

While your Sim is inside the classroom rabbithole, they will have various options available to them by clicking on their portrait, much like the different work options for inactive careers. Click the class icon on the Sim’s portrait to see the various actions they can take in class. Sims can Actively Listen, Take Notes, Sleep in Class, or Chat with Friends. To get the most out of every class, make sure your Sim is taking notes or actively listening. I’m sure we don’t need to tell you that sleeping in class and chatting with friends are not good ways to improve your grades.

If you’re taking a full course load, it’s likely that your Sim will have more than one class in a day, or even back to back classes. Make sure to check the career panel often to keep track of your class schedule so you can budget your time for homework, finals, and self-care effectively.

Ideally, you will want your Sim to attend every single class with all of their homework completed and taking an active role in the class while they are there. This will ensure your Sim gets the most out of their classes and, in turn, gets the best grades at the end of term.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Every course your Sim takes has homework due before every class. When your Sim enrolls in university, they are automatically given a homework notebook in their personal inventory. Sims can complete homework for all their classes using this notebook. Homework takes some time to complete, but Sims with high enough Research & Debate skill complete homework faster.

Sims who stay on top of their homework and pay attention in class will get more out of attending classes and it will have a positive impact on their final grade. Always complete homework before every class and actively pay attention in class for maximum academic success.

In addition to homework that must be completed on a regular basis throughout the term, each class also has a final. Finals are very important and worth a large chunk of your grade. Skipping out on your finals will have a big negative impact on your final grade, so make sure you complete all of them.

Each class will have different requirements for its final. Some classes will require your Sim to write a term paper. Others have final exams and presentations. Look at your class schedule in the career panel to see what’s required of each class.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Exams take place during the last class of the term. If your Sim has done all their homework and attended all their classes, they’re likely to do well on their exam, but Sims can also study for a class using a course book purchased from the university kiosk, a computer, or research station to boost their chances of doing well on their exam.

Don’t miss your final exam! Failing to write the exam results in a big fat zero and will seriously hurt your final grade!

PSST! You can also cheat on your exam by selecting the option on your Sim’s portrait while they’re in the exam… but you would never do that… would you? Getting caught has serious consequences.

Term Papers

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Term papers can be written on the computer under the University menu option. A Sim can write and submit a term paper for a class at any point during the term, so dedicated Sims might want to get these out of the way early.

Term papers take a long time to complete, but Sims with high enough Research & Debate skill complete term papers faster. The first draft of a term paper is usually poor quality. Your Sim can submit poor quality term papers, but f they want the best grade, they should spend some time editing their paper before they submit it.

Term papers can be edited until they are outstanding quality. You’ll receive a notification telling you that your term paper won’t benefit from any further editing once your Sim has increased its quality to outstanding. Scrolling over the term paper option in the computer’s menu will tell you the quality of the term paper.

When your Sim is satisfied with the quality of their paper, they can submit it using the computer.

PSST! You can also plagiarize your term papers by selecting the plagiarize option on the computer… but you would never do that… would you? Getting caught has serious consequences.


The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Your Sim will receive a presentation board in their personal inventory at the start of term for any classes that have a presentation requirement as their final. Presentations function similar to term papers; your Sim will need to compile all of their material on the board, then refine the presentation board until it’s suitable to present in class.

To start, drag the presentation board out of your Sim’s inventory and into the world somewhere, then choose the Capture Information option on the board. Your Sim will spend some time compiling all their material for their presentation onto the board. When they’ve finished, they will have a poor quality presentation board. You can see the board’s quality by hovering over it.

Sims can improve the quality of their presentation by refining and organizing it, and asking other Sims for feedback on their presentation. They can also practice their presentation. Practicing presentations builds the Charisma skill. Once the board cannot be improved any further, you will receive a notification informing you that your Sim’s presentation board looks great and that continuing to fiddle with it won’t improve it any more.

When your Sim is satisfied with the quality of their presentation, they can go to class with the presentation board in their inventory and present it. Presentations do not take place during regular classes; your Sim must click on the class rabbithole and select the presentation option. Presentations can only be given during the day. Your Sim won’t be able to present in the middle of the night.

Final Grades & Starting a New Term

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

If your Sim has done all their homework, attended every class as an active participant, and completed all their finals with outstanding quality, they should have no trouble getting an A+ grade in every class. However, perfect grades don’t come easy. You’ll find that your Sim has little to no time for extracurricular activities, organizations, or socialising when they are taking 4 classes and trying to achieve an A+ grade in every single one of them. University is definitely a rewarding challenge in The Sims 4 , just like in the real world.

Since grades aren’t given out until the end of term, it’s up to your Sim to take a proactive approach to finding out how they’re doing in their classes. They can visit their professors during their office hours or email them on the computer to get an idea of how they’re performing in their classes and how they can improve.

Once all coursework has been submitted, your Sim will be free to enjoy themselves (for once) while their final grades are being processed. Once the final grades are in, you’ll receive a popup with all your final grades for each class, as well as your overall GPA.

From there, you can choose to enroll in another term right away, or take some time off before starting a new term. If your Sim has any scholarships, they must enroll in a new term immediately or they will lose their scholarships. Tuition costs for the new term will be handled at this point as well. Sims can pay with household funds or take out a loan to pay any tuition costs for the new term that scholarships don’t cover.

Your Sim will also be given the opportunity to make different housing arrangements at the start of each new term. They can choose to stay wherever they are currently living, or move somewhere else. This change does not happen right away. Your Sim will have about a day left in their old residence, which gives them an opportunity to pack up any personal items they may have purchased for their living space. A small “Packing Up” event will occur a couple hours before the move to remind your Sim to gather up their things, too.

As long as your Sim continues on the path to success they started in their first term, all their future terms are bound to result in perfect A+ grades across the board. Keep doing that homework, working on those finals, and paying attention in class!

How to Give a Presentation in The Sims 4 Discover University

Keep an eye on the time!

how to give presentation in sims 4

In The Sims 4: Discover University, you’ll find various coursework types that propel your student sim to success in their classes. While some may ask you to prepare term papers, others will ask you to give presentations or take exams. This may sound simple at first, but there is some important information to note before moving further into the school year. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to give a presentation in The Sims 4: Discover University.

Before you can give a presentation, you’ll have to make one! To do this, head into your character’s inventory and look for the presentation board. When you’re ready to begin working on it, place it anywhere in the world and select the board to find “Capture Information”. Click on this to start creating your presentation.

Once you make the presentation and select the board again, you’ll immediately find multiple options:

  • Ask for Feedback
  • Refine and Organize
  • Practice Presenting
  • Give Final Presentation
  • Put in Inventory

Typically, your presentation will start at a low quality. While you can still present it, your grades will be as high if you refine and organize it. Make sure to do this before giving your presentation if you want to maximize your chances of getting an A grade.

When ready, click “ Give Final Presentation ” to head towards the appropriate university building. Your character will bring the presentation board with them and perform over the span of 1-2 hours. Make sure you do this between 8 am-4:30 pm on a weekday, or else you won’t be able to give the presentation.

Once you complete this task, you’ll finish the course’s primary objective. Just make sure to keep an eye on your homework and attend class to maintain high grades.

The Sims 4 is available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 through the official website . If you’d like to learn more about the game, check out How to Drop Out of University and How to Find Lost Homework in The Sims 4 .

Bug Fixed

Presentation Board disappeared from Inventory

Dec, 12th 2019

This bug was fixed in  Patch 1.59.73 . There are still some reports of the board going missing. Please use the AHQ thread linked if you still have issues.

My Sim needs to do a term presentation for his class but the board has disappeared from the inventory/lot.

how to give presentation in sims 4

Things have a general tendency to disappear form the inventory, especially if you travel or move. This can also happen with the presentation board.

  • Place the board in your housing instead of keeping it in the inventory
  • Avoid moving during the term
  • Save your game before you travel
  • Save your game under a new name before you move.

Contrary to homework that you can just re-buy on the bookshelves, there’s no option to acquire a new presentation board. Because of this, there’s no solution to this issue and you need to do end the class without doing the presentation.

This mod still seems to do it’s job but since the resources it uses have been updated multiple times, you should not use it. You can try using it at your own risk to get a new board but after you did so, please remove the mod again

The following mod allows you to get a new board from your professor. Click on Computer > University > Email professors about progress  and choose the class with the missing board. You should then get a new board to your inventory.

While having a desktop computer can be pretty great, laptops offer you a lot of portability, which is especially important if you need something to take with you to work or school. Luckily, there are a lot of choices to pick from, and while the best laptops tend to be quite expensive, there are some pretty great deals that will get you pretty close. There are also a lot of the best laptop brands offering solid budget and mid-range laptops, so even if you're buying on a budget, there's likely a good option for you. We've pulled this list from all the best brands, so you'll find HP laptop deals, Dell laptop deals, Acer laptop deals, Lenovo laptop deals and more. They run the gamut from Chromebook deals and 2-in-1 laptop deals to powerful gaming laptop deals.

HP Chromebook 14a -- $300, was $370

HP is one of the best laptop brands on the market, and if you're thinking of picking up a new laptop, then you may want to consider one of its many varieties of laptops. Not only that, but HP usually has some form of deal going on each of its sub-brans, so whether you're looking for an HP Omen gaming laptop or a Spectre X360 2-in-1 convertible, you'll likely find a good deal on it. Of course, it can be hard to navigate the dozens of different types of laptops HP has, which is why we've gone out and collected some of our favorite deals to help save you the trouble. This list includes the classic Envy model, but we also have an entire article dedicated to HP Envy deals, so check that out too. That said, if you can't find quite what you're looking for below, be sure to check out these other great laptop deals and gaming laptop deals as well. HP Laptop 15z -- $250, was $500

If you need a budget laptop for basic tasks, you can't go wrong with the HP Laptop 15z. With its AMD Athlon Silver 7120U processor, AMD Radeon Graphics, and 8GB of RAM, it's going to be a dependable device for doing online research and working with productivity apps. The laptop features a 128GB SSD with Windows 11 Home pre-loaded, and a relatively large 15.6-inch HD screen for its low price.

HP is one of the best laptop brands in the laptop space, with a huge selection of laptops to pick from, including some of the best laptops on the market. More specifically, though, the HP lineup is probably at the top when it comes to versatile and relatively well-valued laptops. While there are quite a few variations and configurations of the HP Envy, we've gone ahead and put together the ones that we think will give you the most bang for your buck. That said, if you haven't found something you're specifically looking for, be sure to check out HP laptop deals in general, as well as some of these other great laptop deals. HP Envy x360 2-in-1 laptop 15Z-FH000 — $650, was $900

The HP Envy x360 convertible laptop is a great option for just about anyone, particularly anyone who enjoys the touchscreen functionality of a tablet. It’s well designed and super slim, making it a truly go-anywhere device. Despite its portability, it still has an immersive 15.6-inch touchscreen that’s great for creators, note-takers, and binge watchers. Top notch build quality and durability, fast charging technology, a fingerprint reader, and great battery life round out the top features of the HP Envy x360 convertible touchscreen laptop. It competes well with the best 2-in-1 laptops. Its versatility and all-around capability make it a worthy companion on any desk, and on any lap.
