Deal | Save US$400 with a very limited offer on a ThinkPad X1 Extreme with an i7-8750H CPU, a 4K touchscreen display, 16 GB RAM, and a 1 TB SSD
If you are after a powerful 15.6-inch multimedia laptop but are staying clear of the XPS 15 9570 because of its numerous issues, then a deal for one Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme SKU may be worth considering. The X1 Extreme SKUs that we have reviewed have scored at least 90% overall, while the Core i5-8300H version currently sits in second place in our top 10 multimedia laptops shortlist. The Core i7-8750H model would be in the top 5 too, but we only included one variant of each laptop in our list.
Costco is currently selling a SKU with a Core i7-8750H processor, 16 GB RAM, a 1 TB SSD and a 4K anti-glare display for just under US$2,000, which is a saving of US$400. By contrast, Lenovo is selling the same device for US$2,239.51 even after applying over US$750 of savings. We have not tested this SKU, but our i7, 4K-HDR, GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q review has the same components as the SKU on sale at Costco, except that it has double the RAM.
The deal also comes with a Fortnite bundle that gets you 2000 V-Bucks and the male Fortnite Counterattack Set. The set includes the rare Reflex outfit, the rare pivot glider, the uncommon Angular Axe pickaxe and the Response Unit back bling. The SKU also comes with 2 years warranty, which is one year more than if you bought from Lenovo directly. Costco is running the deal until tomorrow with a limit on 5 units per customer. The company has stressed that it will only keep the deal active until stocks last, so be sure to act quickly.
