Lenovo's 8th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a solid choice if you want the best productivity laptop for work or school. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop in this deal packs a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) display, 1.6-GHz Intel Core i5-10201U quad-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.

In our Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 review, we loved its slim, lightweight design and bright, vibrant 1080p display. It also won us over with its fast performance and class-leading keyboard. We gave the 8th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award approval stamp. 

Design-wise the ThinkPad X1 Gen 8, sports a sleek shape and stealthy finish like its predecessor, X1 Carbon Gen 7. Just about the only key physical difference is the "X1" stamp under the signature ThinkPad logo. Built to military-grade specs, it withstands high altitudes, subzero temperatures, drops, and spills. 

For optimal laptop security, the ThinkPad X1 affords you secure data encryption, a webcam cover, and an integrated fingerprint sensor. There's also an IR camera for seamless Windows Hello login. As for ports, you get two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.1 ports, and an HDMI 1.4 input. There's also a lock slot and headphone/mic jack combo on board.

At 2.4 pounds and measuring 12.7 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 is on par with competitors like the Asus ExpertBook B9450 (2.2 pounds, 0.6 inches) and HP Elite Dragonfly (11.9 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.5 pounds). It's just as thin as, yet lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro (12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, 3.1 pounds). 

Now $1,700 off, this ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 deal is at its best price yet and too good to miss.
