The vast global spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus has resulted in a lot of people starting to work from home as part of safety measures to slow the spread. Unfortunately, that's placed added demand on equipment such as laptops, making it very difficult to get hold of what you need right now. Fortunately, Best Buy has stepped up with a curb-side collection to keep supply running. Stock will vary from location to location, but Best Buy is also still shipping stock where they can. So, if you need a new budget laptop to work from home, these are the ones to get right now.

More and more people are working from home of late thanks to the ongoing global situation, leading many to need a laptop to get their work done efficiently. But it's not all work all the time, and that's where the HP Pavilion x360 makes such a good choice.

Being a convertible, you can fold the display around and use it as a tablet if you just want to chill out and watch a little Netflix after work is done for the day. It's not the only high-quality, affordable choice out there, though, and both the ASUS ImagineBook and Dell Inspiron 15 are exceptional alternatives.

All of these make great choices, but each has something different about it, so be sure to consider which best fits your particular needs before pulling the trigger.
