Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Nano is the lightest ThinkPad yet and one of the best business laptops on the market. The notebook in this deal features a 13-inch (2160 x 1350) 2K display, 1.8-GHz Core i5-1130G7 quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and 256GB SSD.

In our Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano review, we loved its stylish, low-profile design, bright display, and snappy keyboard. It also has an impressive battery life which lasted 12 hours on the Laptop Mag battery test. We gave the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano a rating of 4 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award. 

The model we tested had a 11th Gen Core i7 CPU coupled with 16GB RAM hardware. It easily juggled 20 Google Chrome tabs, a pair of 1080p YouTube videos, and Twitch streams without slowing down. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par, delivering speedy performance and seamless multitasking. 

At a mere 2 pounds and 12.7 x 8.5 x 0.55-0.66-inches, it's slightly lighter than its sibling, the X1 Carbon (12.7 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches, 2.4 pounds). It's also much lighter than competing ultra-portables like the Dell XPS 13 (11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.6 pounds), HP EliteBook 830 G7 (12.1 x 8.1 x 0.7 inches, 2.8 pounds) and MacBook Air with M1 (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds). 

Connectivity-wise, Lenovo managed to squeeze two Thunderbolt  ports and a headphone/mic combo jack into the ThinkPad X1 Nano. If you need more ports, you can always invest in a USB hub or opt for wireless peripherals. 

The ThinkPad X1 Nano is a solid pick up if you're looking for a super-portable, yet powerful machine.
