If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly laptop that’s perfect for both personal and professional use, then the HP Chromebook 14 is the laptop for you. It features a 14-inch Full HD display that’s great for watching YouTube videos and Netflix, plus it’s crisp for word processing and spreadsheet use. The laptop also boasts impressive battery life (up to eight and a half hours on a single charge) so it won’t die halfway through your workday. This Chromebook even features a dual speaker set-up from Bang & Olufsen, so you can blast your favorite music and podcasts with premium audio and clarity.

“This laptop has the longest battery life of any laptop I’ve ever had before!!” one happy shopper raved. “You know, they all say that, but this HP Chromebook really delivers! I don’t have a lot of hi-tech needs, so this laptop completely fills my needs. It’s perfect for me!”

Armed with 8GB of memory and 256GB of onboard storage, the Acer Swift 3 is a reliable Windows 10 laptop with a large 15.6-inch display and long 9-hour battery life. And thanks to its top-notch sleek design, this laptop has just about every productivity and entertainment app to keep you busy, regardless of whether you’re using it for work or play.

“This computer checks every box I want in a laptop,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “Fast, responsive, cool, quiet, backlit keyboard, thin, relatively lightweight and all for a good price. The construction is very nice too. You can't find many other full-bodied brushed aluminum chassis at this price point. Acer is spot on with this build, configuration and price for my tastes. The Asus Vivo machines were tempting but they have plastic bottoms. I'm glad I found this before pulling the trigger.”

Sure, laptops are great on-the-go, but sometimes you just need a bigger display to really get some work done. This ViewSonic LED Monitor features a 22-inch display with an anti-glare finish to reduce eye strain and a Full HD resolution for ultra-clear picture quality. It also features ViewSonic’s MEGA Dynamic Contrast for even sharper and vibrant colors than most laptops. It even comes with a dual speaker system for robust audio. Not bad for just $72.

“This is a great monitor. I have two of them mounted to a dual arm mount that is attached to my desk,” another satisfied shopper added, “They are wonderful for this purpose. The sheer amount of screen "real estate" that two 1080 monitors provide is wonderful. The monitor is great... Budget monitor or not, it is as good as any I have seen anywhere near this price range. Very stylish monitor.”
