Right now, you can get the HP Pavilion x360 for $499 at Best Buy. The Pavilion's 2-in-1 design means you can knock out your need for a tablet and a laptop all in one device. Plus, with a 12th gen Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, this 14-inch laptop can handle a lot of what you throw at it. That's tough to beat for less than $500.

The HP Pavilion x360 is a versatile laptop that works for most people. From word processing to web browsing, it has you covered. Plus with its 2-in-1 design, you can use this device as a tablet. The 12th gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 512GB are very solid specs for the money. 

Other highlights of the HP Pavilion x360 include a 14-inch edge-to-edge display, Bang & Olufsen speakers and fast Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. And the sharp 5MP webcam will come in handy on video calls. 

Of course, one of the key features of this laptop is the 2-in-1 design that allows you to convert the Pavilion x360 into a tablet when you're reading emails or watching Netflix.

If you need something beefier, you can check out this Asus ROG Flow X13 2-in-1 gaming laptop for just $999. But if you don't need the Nvidia GPU for graphic design or gaming, the HP Pavilion x360 should be more than enough.
