Lenovo is offering deep discounts this fall on some of our favorite laptops. This week, a model from the flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 line is deeply discounted, as is a configuration from the previous X1 Carbon Gen 7 series. Two-in-one convertible tablet-laptops are also on sale, including the Yoga C940. You’ll also find deals on a 13-inch ThinkPad X390 and a 14-inch ThinkPad T490 business laptop and a high-powered Legion gaming laptop.

These deals require discount codes, which we’ve listed below, but they should appear on the Lenovo page, too. With that small caveat noted, let’s dive into the deals.

You can save nearly $900 on Lenovo’s flagship ThinkPad with code THINKSALE. It features a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive. The 14-inch display offers full HD resolution and 400 nits of brightness. This model is customizable, and I suggest doubling the RAM to 16GB and the SSD to 512GB. Those upgrades raise the price to $1,582, but also bumps the savings up to $1,054 off with the above code.

This discounted model features a 14-inch display powered by a 8th-gen Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The display features a 1,920×1,080 resolution and 250 nits of brightness. You can knock $779 off its price with code THINKDEAL.
