Upgrade Your Work-From-Home Setup with These Top-Rated Laptops

Since the start of the pandemic, many people have transitioned to a work from home mode.  So having a high end, reliable laptop has become more important than ever for staying connected with employers, clients, and customers.  . 

With the many options that are available, it can be a confusing task to choose the best laptop for what you need, especially if your not a computer geek.  As  a large part of my time is spent on line researching, writing, blogging and managing the back end technical part of this website, Trustworthyhomeadvice.com, I’ve spent a good amount of time researching computer hardware.  So I thought I’d define some criteria that I think is important to upgrading your work from home space, then lay out a few options to help you make a decision.


The specific criteria that I think is important in making a good choice for a work at home computer is as follows:

  • Performance: You need a fast and efficient processor, enough memory (RAM), and storage space for running newer demanding software applications, and working with large files.
  • Display: A high-resolution display with good color accuracy and brightness is important for comfortable viewing and productivity.
  • Connectivity: A laptop with a variety of ports and wireless connectivity options, such as USB-C, HDMI, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, makes it easy to connect to external devices and networks.
  • Battery life: A long-lasting battery is really important if you work requires you to travel..
  • Ergonomics: A comfortable keyboard, touchpad, and lightweight design that is easy to carry and adjust to your preferred position are essential for long work sessions.

Based on these criteria, here’s a few choices that I think are great for the work at home environment.  I haven’t “ranked” them from best to worst, I think they are all good choices.  So check each of them out, the links are safe and go directly to Amazon for a good first look at more detailed specs as well as pricing.  

The links are affiliate links that does NOT impact the price you pay at all.   However, if you do purchase one of these via Amazon after selecting one of the links, Trustworthyhomeadvice does get a small commission that helps fund this blog.  So we thank you in advance if you take any of our suggestions.

Within each option listed below when you look at them on the Amazon site, there are more options for more hard disc storage, faster processers, etc.  You can play around with the options and see how it impact the overall price.  

I’m personally using the 3rd option down, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon as I write this post.  I love this laptop.  It’s solid, reliable, fast, lightweight and durable.  It meets all of my needs for surfing, research, blogging, website building, and video rendering, so this is my personal recommendation!
