Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon (8th Gen) packs specs that are on par with some of today's best laptops

It features a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS display with privacy guard, a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD

In our ThinkPad X1 Carbon review, we liked its lightweight and durable design, as well as its new PrivacyGuard display and keyboard layout. 

The 8th Gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon is nearly identical to its predecessor. The laptop's lid has a carbon-fiber weave, which was introduced on select 7th Gen models. About the only difference is that Lenovo repositioned the X1 Carbon decal to just below the ThinkPad logo. 

At 0.6 inches thick and just 2.4 pounds, the 8th Gen ThinkPad is as thin and yet lighter than the new MacBook Pro (0.6 inches, 3.1 pounds) and Dell XPS 13 (0.6 inches, 2.8 pounds). 

As part of the sale, Lenovo also offers the Editor's Choice ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 for $1,289 ($860 off) via coupon "THINKMAY". 

However, if you're looking for a laptop with 10th Gen Intel power, the Gen 8 ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a worthy successor.

Lenovo's Memorial Day Sneak Peek ends May 17.
