In a huge sale for Cyber Monday, Lenovo is bringing yet another doorbuster deal to one of its most popular laptops, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. Similar to the doorbuster savings for the regular ThinkPad X1 for Black Friday, the Cyber Monday discount this time around applies to the convertible Yoga model, which comes with a 360-degree hinge that allows this laptop to convert to a tablet with ease along with support for a digital pen.
These added features make the ThinkPad X1 Yoga a better buy than its non-Yoga stablemate. If you're a student and need a tablet experience to jot notes, doodle on the display, or make drawings and annotations to handouts and homework assignments. For the professional crowd, traveling executives can mark up PDFs, write meeting notes, and get even more functionality out of this convertible laptop form factor.
And after a savings of $2,350, which brings the price down to just $1,259, that makes the Yoga a steal!
Now a whopping 65% off!
ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 Intel (14") |
$3,609 now $1,259 at Lenovo
Equipped with a 14-inch WUXGA resolution IPS display that can reach 400 nits of brightness, this convertible ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 6) laptop brings power and performance. It's equipped with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor with four cores and eight threads, a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive, and 16GB of LPDDR4X memory. For security, Lenovo includes both a fingerprint sensor and an IR camera for passwordless Windows Hello logins, and an integrated pen can be stowed in its compartment inside this notebook.
In addition to all the productivity features you'll find on this laptop, the built-in Dolby Atmos speakers will deliver an immersive audio experience for content consumption, and four far-field microphones will help with video calling.
The only downside to getting this steal of a deal for Cyber Monday is that you're getting an 11th Gen, rather than a 12th Gen, Intel processor. Still, if you can live with a slightly older processor, this ThinkPad X1 Yoga (6th Gen) model will help you stay productive for work, school, or general home use.
At $1,259, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is very competitively priced. For reference, Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $1,099, and if you add in the Apple Pencil, that's another $129. The Apple Magic Keyboard adds another $349 to that experience. In total, that's a $318 premium over the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, which comes with a more powerful, versatile, and flexible desktop operating system for multitasking and running software.
A Yoga for everyone

If you don't need the durability of a business laptop, stepping away from the ThinkPad branding into Lenovo's general Yoga line will be the better move. The Lenovo Yoga 9i is cheaper, at $1,029, with a $600 discount, and comes with a more modern Intel 12th Gen Core i7-1260P processor, 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, and a 1TB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 solid-state drive. Like its ThinkPad X1 Yoga sibling, it comes with a 14-inch WUXGA display that can reach 400 nits of brightness, and this model is also equipped with both an IR scanner and a fingerprint reader for biometric security. It comes in a stylish design with a speaker bar integrated into the 360-degree hinge mechanism.
