Get 25 Percent Off Lenovo's Best ThinkPads

  • MORE

Lenovo's ThinkPads are among the best laptops you can find. Lightweight and powerful, they're as useful in the boardroom as they are on campus. Through May 26, use coupon code "THINKPADSALE" to take 25% off any customizable ThinkPad laptop.

That's the best ThinkPad sale we've seen since the holidays. Even better, the coupon works on many of our favorite Lenovo laptops.

For productivity, few machines compare to the newly released ThinkPad T470. The machine's hot-swappable battery lasts over 17 hours (with the 6-cell unit). It also boasts a world-class keyboard that offers deep travel for extra comfortable typing. The base model starts at $734.25 (down from $783.20) and includes a 14-inch 1366 x 768 LCD, 2.5GHz Core i5-7200U CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive.

We recommend upgrading to a 1080p LCD, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $1,049.25 (down from $1,119.20). That's the configuration that won our hard-to-get Editors' Choice award.

If it's portability you're after, check out the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which we call the Maserati of business laptops. It sports a carbon fiber and magnesium reinforced chassis, which makes it tougher than your typical machine. It was built to pass MIL-SPEC tests for extreme temperatures, shocks, vibrations and sand blasts. It also went through Lenovo's own proprietary bump-and-drop tests.

The X1 Carbon is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, measuring 0.6 inches in thickness and weighing 2.4 pounds. The base model starts at $1,101.75 (down from $1,175.20) and includes a 14-inch 1080p IPS LCD, 2.5GHz Core i5-7200U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.

Upgrading to a more reasonable 256GB SSD ups the price to $1,214.25 (after coupon), which is still $404 off its normal price. The model that got our Editors' Choice award, upgrades everything and includes a  2.8GHz Core i7-7600U CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD for $1,724.25 (down from $1,839.20).

It's not often you get 25 percent off Lenovo's best laptops, so we say upgrade as much as you can afford. The sale expires May 26.
