HP is currently has the HP OMEN 17 RTX 4080 equipped gaming laptop for only $1959.99. This is an incredibly powerful gaming laptop and the price is more reasonable than you'd expect; other RTX 4080 equipped gaming laptops currently sell for at least $2300, and most sell for closer to $3000. Even better, it's paired with the newest 13th gen Intel Core i7-13700HX Raptor Lake CPU and a higher-resolution 17" 2560×1440 display.

How powerful is the RTX 4080 GPU?
The RTX 4080 mobile GPU performs about 20%-35% faster than the RTX 3080 Ti mobile. Compared to desktop variants, the mobile RTX 4080 approaches a performance level similar to the desktop RTX 3070 Ti. It's definitely more than enough power to run games on the native 1440p display at near maximum settings depending on the title.
These GPUs are only worth it with higher resolution displays
Although there are some 1080p laptops available, we think an RTX 40 series card is wasted on such a low resolution. That's because the current RTX 30 series cards can handle this resolution beautifully already. The sweet spot is QHD (or QHD+) because it's still noticeably sharper than 1080p on a 16"-18" display and isn't as graphically demanding as native 4K. Even still, you're going to appreciate the extra power that the RTX 40 series GPU offers to drive the higher resolution.
Mobile RTX 40 series GPUs also support DLSS 3.0
RTX 40 series cards also support DLSS 3.0, which is essentially DLSS 2.0 plus frame generation. For games that support it (like Cyberpunk) this is a massive FPS increase over even DLSS 2.0. It's pretty much a necessity on ray-traced modern games.
