Students can save another $100 on this 14-inch 2-in-1 laptop by signing up to Best Buy's student deals newsletter with an .edu email address. They'll get a top performer powered by a 10th Gen Core i5 processor.

That means for less than $500, you can get a 2-in-1 laptop with a touch screen that's powered by an Intel 10th Gen Core i5 processor. When our sister publication Laptop Mag published an HP Pavilion x360 review, they found the Core i5-powered machine delivered excellent performance and offered a comfortable keyboard. Be aware that battery life is below average, though.
