Working from home brings its share of frustrations. A slow computer shouldn't be one of them. If you're still chugging along with a machine that's more than a few years old, it's a good time to consider an upgrade.

For starters, any new PC you buy will likely include a solid-state drive (SSD), which makes a huge difference in terms of boot speed and overall performance. You might also gain tools like a touchscreen, a digital pen, advanced USB ports and so on.

Sound good? So should this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the Lenovo Flex 5 14-inch convertible laptop for $560. That's $270 off the regular price and the best deal ever for this model.

The 3.3-pound Flex 5 offers some solid work-from-home specs, including an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor, 16GB of RAM (many machines in this price range include only 8GB), a 256GB SSD and a 14-inch touchscreen.

Because this is a convertible, that screen can rotate a full 360 degrees to provide a comprehensive tablet experience — complete with digital pen, something that's bundled here rather than an optional extra.

Other perks include a backlit keyboard, a privacy shutter for the webcam and Wi-Fi 6 (the latest and greatest version of the technology).

All this amounts to a system that should provide a fast, versatile work environment. This is without question one of the best laptop deals I've seen since Black Friday; it's well worth a look.
