I went MSFT Surface since that also is my work machine. I use same charger, pen and keyboard. This is the lowest weight option. Not the cheapest.

Depends on what you need to do with your laptop. If you’re just checking emails and reading, then there are plenty of cheap options. Chrome books are probably the best priced. If you want to edit videos or do fancier things, apple is the best. It also depends on the hardware you want to run. Do you need to have better graphic cards, memory, virtual machines?

I have a Chromebook for personal use and won't need more until I no longer have a work computer. It's my primary because everything I do, I wouldn't mind my employer seeing as long as I am doing personal stuff on personal time. With travel , it's just too much to have 2 laptops .

I use a MacBook Air for personal use - email, surfing, Quicken, etc. Best Buy and Costco seem to have good deals on them. Not as cheap as a Chromebook but I’m a fan of the Apple ecosystem. The batteries last a long time and they’re easy to carry around (even on the road).

If it’s just for emailing and surfing Best Buy has a laptop for $279.
