Deal | Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano laptop with 2K display and 16GB RAM on sale for a fraction of its original price
For some users who need to take their laptop everywhere, even a high-end 14-inch machine like the prestigious ThinkPad X1 Carbon may not be compact and light enough. Fortunately enough, the Chinese PC maker Lenovo has added the almost tiny ThinkPad X1 Nano to its lineup a few years ago, and the first generation 13-inch business notebook is now cheaper than ever thanks to an impressive discount.
Similar to a previous deal from a couple of months ago, the well-known US electronics retailer Antonline is selling the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 1 with the Intel Core i5-i5-1130G7 Tiger Lake CPU and 16GB of on-board LPDDR4x memory at a significant discount. In this case, the Lenovo laptop can be ordered for US$599 instead of the unrealistic MSRP of US$2,919, which translates to potential savings of almost 80 percent. This version of the ThinkPad X1 Nano is further equipped with a 512GB SSD and a matte 2K IPS display with a peak brightness of 434 nits.
For more impressions on the most portable ThinkPad laptop, please refer to our in-depth review of the X1 Nano. Among other things, we praised the 13-inch machine for its well-made and lightweight chassis, good battery life and good connectivity options including Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6. On the other hand, the business notebook from Lenovo comes with a comparatively slow PCIe 3.0 SSD from Western Digital, and the keyboard is not quite as good as the ones found in previous models of the reputable brand. Nonetheless, for a steeply discounted price of just US$599, this deal deserves a closer look from buyers in this fairly affordable price range.
