Deal: Lenovo ThinkPad X12 with Intel Core i7-1160G7 and 16GB RAM on sale for US$804
After the release of Microsoft's original Surface in 2012, Windows tablets have become a widely-used device category which offers distinct advantages over traditional notebooks and laptops in numerous use cases. Even though the software behemoth from Redmond may have developed one of the most popular Windows tablets on the market, Lenovo also offers a comparable laptop tablet hybrid as part of its business-focused ThinkPad lineup.
The Chinese notebook manufacturer currently offers a top-end configuration of the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 for a significantly discounted sales price of just US$804 including free shipping on eBay. This detachable notebook is equipped with the quick Tiger Lake quad-core processor Intel Core i7-1160G7, 16GB of soldered LPDDR4x memory as well as a reasonably sized 512GB M.2 SSD. The Lenovo ThinkPad X12 further comes with WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support, and this deal includes the practical digital pen as well as the detachable backlit keyboard, which also sports a fingerprint reader for biometric identification.
In our comprehensive Notebookcheck review, the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 impressed us with its compact and robust magnesium chassis and the great keyboard cover which even includes the iconic red TrackPoint. The very nice and more than 400 nits bright 3:2 Full-HD display, low operating temperatures and Thunderbolt 4 support further illustrate that the Lenovo ThinkPad X12 is an absolutely worthy alternative to Microsoft's popular Surface Pro series of Windows tablets, which in comparison costs a whopping US$1,599 for a similarly specced configuration on Amazon. Please note that only a limited quantity of notebooks is available at this significantly discounted price, which is why prospective buyers might not want to wait too long to take advantage of this very enticing ThinkPad deal.
