The excellent ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is the best business laptop around. Early back-to-school deals are off to a great start this week with Lenovo taking hundreds of dollars off its best PCs.  

For a limited time, you can get the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 for $879 directly from Lenovo via eBay. That's $1,749 off Lenovo's list price and the lowest price we've seen for this configuration. 

In fact, it's one of the best laptops deals we've spotted all year.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 7) is one of the best laptops you can own. 

The laptop in this deal packs a 14-inch, 1080p display, a 1.6 GHz Core i5-10210U quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. 

Although we didn't review this exact configuration, in our ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 review, we loved its attractive, lightweight design, fast performance, and long battery life. 

In terms of design, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 features clean surfaces, smooth lines, and stylish branding. Like most ThinkPad series laptops, the X1 Carbon Gen 7 is built to military-grade specs. That means it withstands exposure to sand, dust, high altitudes, high humidity, and UV radiation.  

Despite its super-thin design, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is equipped with a generous assortment of ports and connectors. You get two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet dock connector, and a headphone/mic jack.

There's also a handy Kensington lock integrated into its design for added peace of mind. 

At 12.7 x 8.5 x 0.6-inches and 2.4 pounds, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is lighter than some 13-inch laptops like the Dell XPS 13 (11.9 x 8.8 x 0.5 inches, 2.7 pounds) and the HP Spectre x360 13 (12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches, 2.7 pounds). 

So, if portability and durability are as much a priority as performance, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is a smart buy.
