Prime Day 2023 deals are going into overtime and if you're on the hunt for a work laptop, then look no further. The best business laptop is not the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (trust me; I just reviewed it) nor the Dell XPS 15. As a laptop reviewer, the best business laptop I've ever tested is the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16. And guess what? The AMD-powered ThinkPad Z16 is 55% off in Lenovo's Prime Day alternative sale. It normally costs $2799, so that brings its price down to $1,259 via coupon, "THINKBFDEALS2" at checkout. 

If you're looking for one of the best Prime Day laptop deals, look no further than the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16. The most striking aspect of this laptop is how long it can last on a single charge. A typical laptop, according to our records, lasts about 10 hours. To our surprise, the ThinkPad Z16 lasted well beyond that (an extra five hours).

Save $1,259 on the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 via coupon, "THINKBFDEALS2" with this unbeatable business laptop deal. This laptop packs a 16-inch, 1920 x 1200-pixel 400-nit display, an 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 6850H CPU,16GB of RAM, AMD RX 6500M GPU with 4GB of dedicated memory and 1TB of SSD storage. The best part is that, according to our testing, the ThinkPad Z16 lasts nearly 15 hours on a charge.

A typical laptop lasts 10 hours, so imagine my surprise when the ThinkPad Z16 tacked on extra — not one, not two, not three, not four, but five hours to that figure. According to our in-house testing, the ThinkPad Z16, the best business laptop I've ever tested, has a battery runtime of 14 hours and 38 minutes. You might as well throw the whole charging cable away (that's just hyperbole; please don't throw it away.)

On top of its excellent power efficiency, the ThinkPad Z16's processor and graphics blew me away, outpacing all of its rivals on most performance tests. Plus, it has a minimalist, attractive design that is simple and understated, yet eye-catching and sophisticated. And if you have butter fingers, don't worry. The ThinkPad Z16 has military-tested durability, so a few drops or two won't render it inoperable.

I do wish, however, that the ThinkPad Z16 had more ports; you won't find USB Type-A nor Ethernet on this machine, but other than that, the ThinkPad Z16 wins my approval, which is why it earned the highly coveted Laptop Mag Editor's Choice badge.

Prime Day 2023 deals are on borrowed time, but stick with that page and we'll keep you up-to-date on the best deals that are still available, but don't wait as we expect deals like this one to vanish soon!
