HP CONVERTIBLE PC—SAVE $150. Can’t decide between a laptop or a tablet? Then don’t. Get the best of both with an HP Envy 15.6″ FHD X360 convertible PC. This machine is built for work and play with next-level security features, like a built-in fingerprint reader and webcam kill switch, and the sleekest innovations, like a 3-way micro-edge display. Even better: This model boasts dual HD speakers from Bang & Olufsen, for a completely immersive audiovisual experience, whether you’re video chatting or watching your favorite TV show.

LENOVO 11″ CHROMEBOOK—SAVE $30. Congratulations, you just found a laptop any member of your family can enjoy—and at a price that won’t break the bank. (In fact, you might want to buy two.) This best-selling Lenovo 3 11″ Celeron 4GB/32GB Chromebook doesn’t even require set-up. Google users can just log into their account and go on the streamlined Chrome interface with a library of Google Play apps. It’ll run you under $200, but 10 hours of battery life and automatic security updates every six weeks are pretty much priceless.

GATEWAY 14″ NOTEBOOK—SAVE $150. With a rainbow of color options—blue, green, purple and black—you won’t mistake this Gateway 14.1″ FHD Ultra Slim Notebook for anyone else’s at school or home. The 1080 pixel screen, THX audio and Intel Core i3 processor make this laptop ideal for streaming and everyday computing tasks. The built-in fingerprint scanner ensures computer security without the inconvenience of having to type, re-type, re-type and ultimately reset a password.

SAMSUNG 13.3″ GALAXY BOOK QLED—SAVE $203. What exactly is QLED? You’ll know it when you see it on the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 13.3″ QLED. It means “quantum dot LED,” which translates to crisper, more vivid colors, light saturation on-screen and eliminates screen burn—an eyesore for gamers and heavy computer users. Samsung introduced QLED on its TVs and has since brought the technology to smaller screens. But here’s something that needs no explanation: a battery that charges fast and lasts up to 19 hours. Also, bonus points for an ergonomic smart keyboard that adjusts when you tilt back the screen.

SAMSUNG GALAXY BOOK S—SAVE $200. Good things come in sleek packages, like this Samsung Galaxy Book S, 256GB. At just over two pounds, this laptop is easy to take anywhere, and its Gigabit LTE gives users high-speed access wherever they are—even when wi-fi’s not available. Transfer and download large files from a drive or phone in a flash with the two USB-C ports and feel free to keep them indefinitely with 256GB of internal storage space.
