Working from home has its challenges — especially if an old laptop is slowing you down. Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade? Luckily, we found a gem. 

Today only, the Lenovo V14 IIL Laptop is on sale for just $470 at Best Buy. That’s nearly 22 percent off and a savings of $130! But act fast and shop now, this sale expires at the end of the day — as part of Best Buy's 'Deal of the Day.' Have we mentioned that it's on sale just for today?

Here’s the lowdown:

Power, design...and fun!

If productivity is your game, then this baby came to play. Its brilliant HD 14-inch LED display will make everything look stellar, from spreadsheets to YouTube videos. And thanks to a speedy and powerful Intel Core i5-1035G1 Dual-Core Processor (tenth generation) paired with 4GB of memory, this laptop can handle just about any task you throw at it — especially with a battery life of up to six hours.

It’s also designed with 256GB of on-board storage, which is more than enough space for Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and tons of video and music files. And all of this raw computing power is housed inside a chic, compact design. At just three and a half pounds, it's a breeze for everyday toting or to take on your next trip.

And it's not just a sturdy workhorse; it's also a versatile playhorse (is that a thing? It is now!). You can watch YouTube videos, rent a movie from the Microsoft Store, or play a quick game of Candy Crush between on-the-job tasks — not that you'd surreptitiously shirk your duties while working from home!

Ever wanted a virtual secretary? Here ya go...

This Lenovo V14 IIL has some cool features too, namely it’s ease-of-use and Cortana voice assistant built-in. Named after the artificial intelligence character in the Xbox video game series Halo, Cortana allows you to pretend you have an assistant, always ready to do your bidding. 

Just say ‘Hey Cortana,’ then ask a question like, ‘Where are my system preferences?’ to make the set-up process easy. Just think of Cortana as Amazon Alexa or Apple Siri, but for Windows 10 Pro 64 and Microsoft users.

Bottom line

At $470 (was $600), this Lenovo V14 IIL Laptop has power and clarity that doesn’t disappoint, especially since it's expandable with Bluetooth and three USB-A ports. It’ll suit everyone from young college students to globetrotters to retirees looking for a user-friendly everyday computer.

Our advice? Snag it now before it sells out or its price jumps back up.
