When we talk about the best laptops for working from home, we're looking for something different to a laptop that lets us work wherever we are. The focus here is less on having a big and beautiful screen for creative work absolutely anywhere (we assume you have great monitors already), and more about having something that's conveniently portable from your home to your office.

So the best laptop for remote work needs to fill certain requirements. On the one hand, we have laptops that need to be portable workstations, capable of delivering the pro levels of power you need, and easy to take from one place to another. On the other hand, maybe you don't need that power, and need something that's super-light to avoid weighing down your commute. And on the third hand (that we all fortunately have in order to keep up with demands these days…), you might need something that you can work on flexibly, with a touchscreen for drawing or editing.
