The ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2 was released in early 2021, but thanks to a notable 40% discount at Costco, the 13-inch convertible remains a solid choice for budget-conscious laptop buyers who mostly use office applications.

Despite the huge discounts that Lenovo regularly grants on some of its ThinkPads, most products from the legendary line of business laptops cost more than $700. However, frugal shoppers who are looking for a compact 13-inch convertible for less than $500 should now take a look at an ongoing deal for the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga.

More precisely, the popular wholesale retailer is now selling the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2 with an Intel Core i5-1145G7 Tiger Lake CPU and soldered 16GB RAM for just $449. Shipping and handling adds $15 to this compelling sale price, and as usual, a Costco membership is required in order to take advantage of this Lenovo laptop deal which grants an additional 40% discount relative to the already reduced list price of the ThinkPad L13 Yoga.

The budget-friendly configuration of the 13-inch convertible is further equipped with a 1TB SSD as well as a 1080p touchscreen. We thoroughly reviewed a slightly different model variant of the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2 two years ago. In addition to the commendable port selection including Thunderbolt 4 and a microSD reader, we praised the laptop's robust chassis and decent performance.

On the other hand, our measured battery life of roughly seven hours when browsing via WiFi is shorter than many modern convertibles. Moreover, we found that the fairly reflective display can struggle during outdoor usage. But for under $500, the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2 is an excellent bargain for Costco members who are in the market for a cheap but dependable laptop.
