The retailer Staples is offering an excellent selection of laptop deals on Intel-based machines this week, most of which are a perfect choice for a solid machine for work or college. Listings start at just $279 this week but we've rounded up what we think are the best ones just down below.

Highlights include this super solid Core i3-based HP 15 for $329.99 (was $549.99), which is a great choice if you're strictly on a budget but want a reliable machine from a decent brand. We'd also recommend checking out this slightly upgraded version for $449.99 (was $629.99), if you think you'll need a little more power from a Core i5 processor.

Our favorite laptop deal in this week's sale? Probably this Asus Vivobook 15 for $529.99 (was $629). While the saving isn't the biggest on this particular listing when compared to some of the other deals at Staples this week, a 12th gen Core i5 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD makes this ultrabook a fantastic performer straight out the box. 

All in all, this week's sale at Staples is likely to be the best at the retailer this side of Black Friday in November so it's definitely worth checking out if you don't want to wait until then. If you're interested in seeing our predictions and tips for this mega-sale, then head on over to our Black Friday laptop deals page.

Step up in price slightly with this week's laptop deals at Staples and you'll find this upgraded 15.6-inch HP, which features an 11th gen Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. The storage drive is a little on the smaller side for this one but its powerful processor is going to make short work of most applications. For an inexpensive working-from-home laptop this listing is a decent choice.

Quite possibly the best bang-for-the-buck laptop deal on our list, this 15.6-inch Asus Vivobook features a super up-to-date 12th gen Intel Core i5 processor, a 512GB SSD, and 12GB of RAM. These specs are fantastic for the price point and offer plenty of storage and heaps of performance right out of the box. This is a great choice for a serious working-from-home laptop that'll last a few good years down the line. Prefer a 17-inch version? There's a listing here <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant=""">for $529.99 (was $729) that features similar specs, albeit with only 8GB of RAM.

Another super solid upper mid-range laptop deal, this Lenovo Ideapad features a beefy Intel Core i7 processor and a slightly larger 17.3-inch display. While you'll have to suffice with a smaller 256GB SSD here, this machine is the most powerful on our list today and a decent choice if you'd prefer screen capacity over portability.

If portability is king for you, consider the excellent Microsoft Surface laptop Go 2. An 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD give this one a decent level of power, although the selling point is the super slim design and high-quality build. For work on the go, this one is a fantastic do-it-all laptop that's way cheaper than the equivalent MacBook Air from Apple.
