College students save more with Student Deals

There are a number of convertible laptops from Lenovo -- along with one each from Asus and Samsung -- that let students take off an additional $100 or $150 from the laptops' already discounted prices via Best Buy's Student Deals program. To quality for Student Deals, you need to be in college and have a My Best Buy membership (it's free to sign up). The fine print for college eligibility says you must be "a college student actively enrolled in at least one course at a post-secondary educational institution or a parent or legal guardian ("Parent") of a student actively enrolled at primary, secondary or post-secondary educational institution."

This 15.6-inch Yoga 730 serves up an Intel Core i5-8265U CPU, 12GB of memory and a 256GB SSD. Its touch display can rotate a full 360-degrees to convert from laptop mode to tablet mode. Best Buy has it discounted by $200, and students can knock off an additional $100 to bring the price down to $550.

This 15.6-inch Yoga 730 model bumps you up to a Core i7 CPU to go along with its 12GB of memory and 256GB SSD. It's discounted by $100 at Best Buy, and students can take off an additional $100 to drop the price to $750.

Best Buy doesn't label this model as a Yoga 730, but it's the 15.6-inch version of that series. This model is a video powerhouse with a 4K display and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. Other core specs include the Core i7-8550U CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The $150 Student Deals discount drops the price to $1,250.

CNET calls the Yoga C930, quite simply, "one of the best two-in-one laptops available" for its "excellent performance and a stylish and functional design." This model boasts a 4K display and comes loaded with an Intel Core i7-8550U, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Add the $150 Student Deals discount and savings double with a price drop to $1,350.

Samsung includes a good active pen with the system even if it didn't include a spot in which to store it. This model features an Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 13.3-inch touch display. Best Buy has it discounted by $150, and students can save another $150 to bring the price down to $800.
