ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 on a desk


Lenovo’s flagship ThinkPad is now half off with code THINKMEMDEALS. It features a 12th-gen Core i7 CPU, an ample 32GB of RAM and a spacious 1TB solid-state drive. The 14-inch display has a 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution along with a tall 16:10 aspect ratio, and it’s rated for a more than adequate 400 nits of brightness. Weighing roughly 2.5 pounds, the X1 Carbon makes for an easy travel companion. And having passed a series of MIL-SPEC tests, it’s rugged enough to stand up to the rigors of business travel.

ThinkPad T14S Gen 2 AMD lying flat


Lenovo’s ThinkPad T series is second only to the company’s flagship X1 Carbon line in the ThinkPad pecking order. The ThinkPad T14s is a slimmer version of the ThinkPad T14, though not quite as thin as the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This AMD-based model is now 40% off with code THINKMAY and features the new Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. The 14-inch screen has 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution, a roomy 16:10 aspect ratio and 300 nits of brightness.

Legion 5 Pro Gen 7 AMD gaming laptop open and at an angle


This Legion gaming laptop boasts a roomy 16-inch display powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 6800H CPU and RTX 3060 graphics. The display features a crisp 2,560×1,600-pixel resolution, a speedy 165Hz refresh rate and is rated for an impressive 500 nits of brightness. You also get an acceptable 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, though you can upgrade to 1TB for another $70. 

ThinkPad T16 at an angle


The first 16-inch model in Lenovo’s ThinkPad T series, the ThinkPad T16 is discounted by 40% with code THINKMAY and boasts a roomy 16-inch display with a tall 16:10 aspect ratio and a 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution. It features touch support and is rated for a sufficient 300 nits of brightness. This sale model features the midrange AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U CPU, and starts with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD — though you can upgrade the specs if you’re willing to spend a little more. 

Lenovo Yoga 6 front and back


This 13.3-inch two-in-one convertible features a roomy 16:10 display wrapped in a compact, all-aluminum enclosure powered by a midrange AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. With the 360-degree hinge, you can use the Yoga 6 as a laptop and tablet. The CPU is a generation behind AMD’s current Ryzen 6000 series, but it should provide ample oomph for general tasks. Most laptops and convertibles at this price supply only 8GB of RAM, so getting double that amount is a boon and will go a long way towards providing a smooth Windows experience.

Our favorite two-in-one laptop for the business set, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga boasts an abundance of hardware options and security features wrapped up in a thin, light aluminum frame. This model is a generation behind the new Gen 8 series but a lot more affordable. It’s 40% off with code THINKMAY and features a 12th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It also features a 1080p webcam and includes the ThinkPad Pen Pro stylus. The 14-inch screen features a 16:10 aspect ratio for more vertical space than wider 16:9 screens and is rated for 400 nits of brightness.

ThinkPad T14 Gen 3 on white background


Two rungs down from the flagship X1 Carbon and one rung below the ThinkPad T14S on the ThinkPad ladder is the ThinkPad T14. A slightly bulkier body nets you a well-rounded configuration for a lower price. This latest Gen 3 model is 40% with code THINKMAY. The basic configuration comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U CPU, along with 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, with the option to upgrade the specs. The 14-inch, 16:10 display has a 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution and is rated for a reasonable 300 nits of brightness.

This ThinkPad X13 is another ultraportable option for those who can’t afford the X1 Carbon. The newest addition to the line is discounted with code THINKMAY and features a new 12th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The 13.3-inch display has a 16:10 aspect ratio to provide more vertical space (so less scrolling) with a 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution and 300 nits of brightness.
