Lenovo US has announced a major sales event running for this weekend only, with up to 70% off some PCs of various types. Among these are the 7th- and 8th-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultrabooks, which are down to under US$1000 in some cases. The Ryzen 7 Pro 3700U-powered T495s also features here at an excellent price.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Lenovo's US webstore is currently holding an end of summer 2020 sale. It encompasses a range of the OEM's Think-series PCs, including one listing in which the Intel Core i5-8365U-powered ThinkCenter M90n "nano"-PC is down to as little as US$399, as opposed to its starting price of $1299. Similarly, some of this line's highest-end ultrabooks are down to more reasonable prices for the purposes of this event.

They include the well-received 7th-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon, with the Core i5-8265U processor and 8GB of RAM, at a discount of up to 58%. Those who might prefer a newer system may be more interested in the 8th-gen X1 instead, which goes for up to 45% off depending on its configuration.

Then again, buyers should note that only this premium ThinkPad's i5-10210U/8GB RAM SKUs are included in this deal, whereas the top-end i7-10510U-powered versions are not in this sale at all. Those looking for less Intel could also consider the ThinkPad T495s. Its Ryzen 5 Pro 3500U and 7 Pro 3700U variants are $675 and $711 respectively. These prices are only in effect until tomorrow (September 20, 2020), however.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
