Lenovo's Yoga 9i is one of the best laptops for college students. It features a unique rotating soundbar for 360-degree sound whether you’re in laptop, tent or tablet mode. The laptop in this deal has a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) touch display, Intel's 3.0-GHz Core i7-1185G7 quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and Intel Iris Xe graphics. For storing all of your important files, it houses a speedy 512GB solid-state drive.

In our Lenovo Yoga 9i review, we gave the Lenovo Yoga 9i a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and crowned it with our Editor's Choice award. During testing, we launched 30 Chrome browser tabs, some of which streamed 1080p YouTube videos while others played Twitch streams. The Yoga 9i showed no signs of slowing down. 

In our lab, the Yoga 9i landed a score of 5,312 in the Geekbench 5.3 overall performance test. It crushed the category average (3,566) and its main competitor, the HP Spectre x360 14 (4,904, Core i7-1165G7). 

If you're looking for a powerful laptop that does it all, you can't go wrong with the Yoga 9i. 

Looking for a traditional laptop instead? As an alternative, you can get Lenovo IdeaPad 5i for $715 ($205 off) via coupon, "IDEA5DB3". It houses a 2.4-GHz Core i5-1135G7 4-core CPU coupled with 8GB of RAM. That's ample power for day-to-day productivity and entertainment.
