It seems like Black Friday arrives earlier and earlier each year, and for 2018 this is no exception. Starting this recent Friday, Lenovo is launching their “early bird” Black Friday deals on select models. Before you scoff at the promotion, some of the pricing is actually incredibly enticing! For example, the base model X1 Carbon is now at a new lowest ever price of $987 – well under the $1,000 threshold where the laptop is generally found at throughout the year. This model comes with an 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U processor, IPS Full HD touch display, and a fast 256GB SSD. If you need more oomph, the Core i7 models starts at $1,474 and come with the higher-end 1440p WQHD display. If you’re looking for a display even with more fidelity – Lenovo does offer the higher-end panel with Dolby Vision 500 nits (as compare to the 300 nits in the standard panel). All of these models are discounted by 35% off.
In other offerings, you’ll find the also popular X1 Yoga and the X380 Yoga. Both these models are fairly similar in capabilities, but unlike the X1 Carbon, the discounts are limited only to 30% off instead of 35% off. The base X380 starts at $951 but does come with a small 128GB SSD, while the X1 Yoga starts off at 256GB SSD but at a price of $1,169. Note that base model comes in both Black or Silver depending on your color preference.
Finally, for those with deeper pocket or needs, the high-end ThinkPad X1 Extreme is also on sale, with the base model starting at $1,301 and the higher-end model quickly jumping to a cool $3,154. These workstation quality machines comes with a Quad Core 8th Gen Intel processors. The base includes the Core i5-8400H while the higher-end models are equipped with the Core i7-8850H. All of them includes discrete graphics with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Two of the models listed below also comes with a high-end 4K Ultra HD panel and plenty of RAM.

Note: For some context on the hefty $3,000 price tag, the final model listed is a bundle which includes 3 years worth of premium support, onsite upgrade, sealed battery compatible, keep your drive, and most importantly an accidental damage protection. Physical item bundled is a ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock, Lenovo Executive Topload Case, and finally a ThinkPad X1 wireless touch mouse.
All deals end later this week on Monday, October 29 at 9PM Eastern. If you prefer to wait until the holiday season for true Black Friday – expect an extra 5% ~ 10% in discount for most of these models. For the pricier config – this can actually be pretty significant – but much less so for base models.
Another caveat to consider: when you order during the end of the year, supplies and stock are on a different level and unlike pre-configs that are available to ship in 3-5 days, you may be looking at additional 1-2 weeks of wait time.
All deals includes free shipping and full warranty straight from Lenovo.
