Of all the computer brands on the market in 2019, few have proven as long-lasting as the iconic ThinkPad. Born in the ‘90s, IBM’s ThinkPad PCs were among the earliest consumer laptops out there, but ones that were specifically aimed at professionals and other tech enthusiasts (for whom the ThinkPad name still sits on a pedestal). Lenovo acquired the modern brand in 2005, and since then, the China-based company has kept it nicely updated, with the X series featuring a lot of cutting-edge ultrabooks and 2-in-1s like the ThinkPad X1 Yoga – which is on sale right now at a massive discount when you use the promo code: .
The X series has always represented the “bleeding edge” of the ThinkPad line, featuring smaller, slimmer, and lighter laptops that were compact alternatives to the more standard-sized T series machines. Voted one of the best laptops from CES 2019, it’s packed with a number of updates. In 2019, the X-series ThinkPads have all but supplanted the T-series as ultrabooks and 2-in-1 laptops have increasingly become the norm, with models like the X1 Carbon, X1 Extreme, and X1 Yoga representing some of the most advanced designs to be found in modern Windows PCs.
At a glance, the X1 Yoga is very clearly a ThinkPad, right down to details like the classic brand badge, all-black design, and little red TrackPoint joystick (which many ThinkPad veterans will tell you is much more enjoyable than a trackpad once you get used to it). The ThinkPad X1 Yoga also boasts the solid build quality these PCs are known for along with a gorgeous Quad HD display.
But what really sets the ThinkPad X1 Yoga apart from the rest of the Windows laptop herd is its 2-in-1 capabilities. The display of this versatile hybrid laptop can fold flat on its hinge, letting you use the touchscreen like a tablet. The X1 Yoga has it where it counts under the hood, too, with an Intel Core i7-8650U and 16GB of RAM for great performance, plus a 512GB SSD which gives you plenty of high-speed storage.
This configuration of the third-gen ThinkPad X1 Yoga is high-end hardware and retails for a steep $3,439. However, Lenovo has it on sale right now at an eye-popping discount: The checkout code THINKDEALS knocks a massive $1,840 off that retail price, letting you score this great 2-in-1 ultrabook for a much more reasonable $1,599 right now.
