Lenovo’s ThinkPad lineup hosts some of the best Windows laptop options around. For the business-oriented, perhaps none is better than the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon. These laptops don’t come cheap, and while Lenovo often offers discounts, Black Friday is still a great time to save big. One X1 Carbon model is currently discounted by $1,329 (more than 50%) at Lenovo, bringing the total price down to just $950 after using coupon code “X1BLACKFRIDAY” at checkout.
Due to the myriad configuration options available for most ThinkPads, it might be easy to dismiss this deal thinking it’s a low-end model. However, there really aren’t any low-end X1 Carbons. This one inside has a 10th Gen Intel Core i5- 10210U processor (CPU), 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM that can’t be upgraded, a 256GB M.2 PCIe solid-state drive (SSD) that can be upgraded, and a 14-inch FHD display with 400 nits brightness and an anti-glare finish.
This model has the performance needed to handle most standard productivity work, like word processing, email, heavy web browsing, streaming, and even some light photo editing. The keyboard has a strong claim for being the best available, and the Precision touchpad is paired with the classic TrackPoint system with red pointing nub and physical buttons.
A fingerprint reader is included for extra security, and there’s a shutter for the 720p front-facing camera. Ports are plentiful, with dual Thunderbolt 3, dual USB-A 3.2, HDMI 1.4, network extension adapter, and 3.5mm audio, plus there’s Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a new business partner, the X1 Carbon (Gen 8) is a fantastic option. And thanks to Black Friday savings at Lenovo, you can get one for $950 with coupon code “X1BLACKFRIDAY” at checkout.
