Deal | Lenovo clearing stock on AMD ThinkBook 15 G2 for only $654 USD with 1080p IPS display, Ryzen 7 4700U, 16 GB RAM, and 512 GB PCIe SSD
Lenovo is currently offering its ThinkBook 15 G2 laptop for just $654 USD after applying the coupon code 'THINKJUNDEAL' at checkout. The system launched early last year and so it is still relatively new in the market.
The deal is notable as the ThinkBook 15 Gen 2 is a higher-end prosumer laptop from Lenovo in contrast to the cheap IdeaPad 3 or IdeaPad 5 series. Its Ryzen 7 4700U is also as fast and oftentimes even faster than many Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake-U options as found on pricier models like the Dell XPS series or ThinkPad series. It's a lot of processing power for not a lot of money.
Downsides to the deal include its 250-nit IPS display and 45 percent NTSC coverage which translates to just 60 percent of sRGB. Most other mid-range to high-end Ultrabooks these days offer 90 percent sRGB coverage or greater for deeper and potentially more accurate colors. If you plan on doing a lot of graphics editing, then you may want to skip this deal or at least connect an appropriate external monitor.
Thunderbolt is also not supported, but that is to be expected from almost all AMD Zen 2 or Zen 3 laptops.
