As we praise in our Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano review, this laptop has a 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 rate the ThinkPad X1 Nano 4 out of 5 stars and give it our Editor's Choice award cosign. 

The model we tested housed 11th Gen Core i7 and 16GB RAM hardware. It juggled 20 Google Chrome tabs, a pair of 1080p YouTube videos, and Twitch streams with ease. Although the laptop in this deal has a Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM, you can expect its seamless, multitasking performance to be on par. It's a suitable laptop for creating documents, streaming content, and light PC gaming. 

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 thin, lightweight, yet powerful machine. Don't miss your chance to own it for its best price yet. 

Lenovo's coupon expires on March 31.
