Lenovo laptop deals: Get a ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 for $999, a Yoga 7i for $810 and more

No sooner has the calendar turned to February than Lenovo started slashing laptop prices in preparation for its annual Presidents Day sale. You’ll find huge price cuts on all variety of laptops, from business-class ThinkPads to two-in-one convertible Yogas to high-powered Legion gaming laptops.

The best deal to my eyes at the moment is a well-appointed model of the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 line that you can get for less than $1,000; I haven’t seen an X1 Carbon Gen 8 creep into the triple digits before. While it lacks the latest Intel silicon, it serves up ample memory and solid-state storage capacity inside the solidly rugged yet incredibly thin X1 Carbon chassis.

One step down from the X1 Carbon line, the ThinkPad T14 is on sale for $900. Lenovo’s new Yoga 7i and 9i two-in-one convertibles are also both on sale along with our favorite premium business convertible, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. For gamers, there are high-powered Legion Y540 and Legion 7i gaming laptops on sale.

You’ll need discount codes for some of these Lenovo deals, which we’ve listed below, but they should appear on the Lenovo page, too. Now let’s dive into the deals and find you a new Lenovo laptop. We’ll keep this page updated with all the latest Lenovo deals.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T series is second only to the company’s flagship X1 Carbon line in the ThinkPad pecking order. This ThinkPad T14 model has a 14-inch screen powered by a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The display features 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution but is rated for only 250 nits of brightness, which should suffice for all but the most sun-drenched offices. You can get it for less than $1,000 with code THINKDEAL.

Lenovo’s new midrange two-in-one convertible laptop/tablet is already on sale. It features the same design as the Yoga C740 it replaces but inside received an update to Intel’s 11th-gen CPUs. This sale model features an 11th-gen Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Its 15-inch touch display can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode. With its 11th-gen Core chip, the Yoga 7i gets Intel’s Evo label, which means among other things that the laptop has oodles of battery life, fast-charging and the ability to wake from sleep instantly.

Trade the lower-end Legion 5i’s plastic chassis for all-aluminum sleekness and you get the Legion 7i. This discounted configuration with code SneakPeek6 features a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics. The 15.6-inch FHD display should be fast and bright: It has a 144Hz refresh rate and is rated for 500 nits of brightness.

The Legion Y540 lacks the aluminum chassis of the higher-end Legion 7i but packs a punch inside its molded-plastic enclosure. You can save $400 with code PRESDAYSP on this model that features a 9th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics. The 15.6-inch display features  1,920×1,080-pixel resolution with a 60Hz refresh rate and is rated for 300 nits of brightness. You miss out on next-gen RTX graphics and a faster 120Hz or 144Hz display, but this budget gaming laptop will let you play Fortnite and other casual games at 1080p and 60 frames per second.
