As senior staff writer Kimber Streams writes in our Windows ultrabooks guide, ultrabooks are the best laptops for most people. Lightweight with a long battery life, ultrabooks work well for basic tasks like checking and replying to email, editing audio, editing personal photos, or collaborating in Google Docs—all for less than the price of a more decked-out laptop.
Our pick for the best 2-in-1 laptop is the HP Spectre x360 13 and it’s down to $779 with code 5STACKBFCM21. This convertible laptop is a good choice if you want to use it as a tablet or propped up like a tent—these setups can make following recipes or watching Netflix easier. This item also comes with the most recent generation of Intel core processor and we recommend opting for the 8GB memory and 256 GB SSD storage.
