Less Is More: Top 4 Picks for Affordable But Quality Laptops

You know what they say: less is more. In a society as fast-paced as the one we're living in, we need to figure out a way to get more and spend less.

Just last week, I was window-shopping at a mall's electronics department, and I could swear that my bank account cried when just the very thought of buying a new laptop crossed my mind.

We used to be under the impression that bargains meant cheaply made, but today, that couldn't be further from the truth.

In fact, if you're like me - a working from home mom of one who's looking for a budget laptop for work - then you might want to check out my list of top 4 affordable, quality laptops:
