If you need a solid modern laptop for everyday use then this HP 15t is great value for money in the HP Presidents' Day sale.

HP Pavilion Plus 14: <a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=7168&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hp.com%2Fus-en%2Fshop%2Fpdp%2Fhp-pavilion-plus-laptop-14z-ey000-14-7y8v4av-1" data-link-merchant="hp.com"">was $849.99 now $549.99 at HP
If you value performance and portability equally then consider this HP Pavilion Plus 14 while it's $300 off. At a smaller 14-inches in size, it's a lot easier for you to take on the go but you won't have to compromise on power. Components include a decent AMD Ryzen 5 processor, as well as a generous 16GB of RAM and a healthy 512GB SSD that will offer fast boot and load times.

HP Chromebook 14a: $309.99$199.99 at HP

HP Chromebook 14a: <a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=7168&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hp.com%2Fus-en%2Fshop%2Fpdp%2Fhp-chromebook-14a-ne0047nr" data-link-merchant="hp.com"">was $309.99 now $199.99 at HP
At the cheaper end of the scale is this HP Chromebook 14a that's now under $200 in the manufacturer's Presidents' Day sale. It's no high-performance machine but I'd recommend this one if you need a basic and affordable laptop. It's built for infrequent light use at home or for schoolwork with enough storage for key files and a decent 8-hour battery life.

HP Spectre x360: $1,399.99$899.99 at HP

HP Spectre x360: <a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=7168&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hp.com%2Fus-en%2Fshop%2Fpdp%2Fhp-spectre-x360-2-in-1-laptop-14t-ef200-135-771x5av-1" data-link-merchant="hp.com"">was $1,399.99 now $899.99 at HP
2-in-1 laptops often come at a premium for the added flexibility and this HP Spectre x360 is no different. However, considering how powerful some of the components are you get a lot for the money. There's an Intel i5 processor inside, as well as 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. These combined offer excellent all-around high performance, making this a great device for multitasking, work, drawing, streaming video and more.
