Best Lenovo laptop deals: Early holiday savings are here for ThinkPads, Yogas and more

You'll find big discounts on the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon, two-in-one Yoga convertibles and a Legion gaming laptop with RTX 3060 graphics.

Is your laptop too old to make the leap to Windows 11? Lenovo refreshed many of its laptop lines in the past six months with the latest AMD and Intel processors that make the systems more than qualified to run Microsoft's latest OS. And now is a good time to buy, because Lenovo has started its holiday sales. Many of these new models, from business-class ThinkPads and two-in-one convertible Yogas to a midrange Legion gaming laptop, are available at deep discounts. 

There are a number of ThinkPads currently on sale, including the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and the stellar ThinkPad X1 Yoga. And check out the Legion 7i Gen 6 on sale with Nvidia's latest GeForce RTX 3060 graphics.

You'll need discount codes for most of these Lenovo deals, which we've listed below, but the codes should appear on Lenovo's website too. 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. The ThinkPad T14S is a slimmer version of the ThinkPad T14, though not quite as thin as the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon. You can save more than $1,000 with code THINKHOLIDAYS on this configuration, which features an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 14-inch screen has full-HD resolution and is rated for an acceptable 300 nits of brightness.

Just a bit bulkier than the ThinkPad T14S, the workhorse ThinkPad T14 is still a trim 14-inch laptop and provides more performance for your dollar. This discounted model with code THINKHOLIDAYS serves up an 11th-gen Core i5 CPU along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 14-inch screen has full-HD resolution and is rated for 300 nits of brightness.

This ThinkPad X13 is another ultraportable option for those who can't afford the high prices of the X1 Carbon. This model is discounted with code THINKHOLIDAYS and features an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 13.3-inch display has a 16:10 aspect ratio to provide more vertical space (so less scrolling), with a 1,920x1,200-pixel resolution, and is rated for a sufficient 300 nits of brightness.

The X1 Extreme is no ordinary ThinkPad. This model serves up a 16-inch display with 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution and rated for an impressive 400 nits of brightness. It features an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics that allow you to go beyond basic office tasks and engage in content creation and a bit of gaming. You can save more than $1,000 on it with code THINKHOLIDAYS.
