PSA: The Mica colour model does not have the leather lid top as pictured. That's the Shadow Black only (with the full-width glass cover on the palm rest/trackpad). Kind of misleading on their website.

Upvoted, this is a great deal -- sadly I just bought a 7i about two weeks ago or would have pulled the trigger on this.

That said, I think Lenovo are $#%#$%, they run these types of promotions all the time with a LIMIT of 3 units, I mean seriously ?

Also 7% cashback from Rakuten.

The new Intel iris Xe graphics are actually a pretty respectable upgrade from the iris chipsets from 10th Gen. And I think the soundbar design is fairly unique, and helps with the limited soundstage of laptop speakers. The 1tb SSD,16 GB of RAM, and 400 nit display are better than most other "value" oriented laptop deals that RFD likes.

Yea I’ve been pretty impressed with the new 11th gen Intel’s from the reviews. I know they’ve taken a lot of heat the last couple generations but they did pretty well this time around. Can even do a bit of light gaming on them. Plus there’s a review where they hooked this laptop up to a dedicated gpu and actually did really great, even run cyberpunk at high settings.

Just order individually. There's no real limit. I just ordered a bunch of ThinkPads for the office using this method.

Feel free to delete the post, grow up a bit.
Nothing harsh was said. Take some criticism and make your deal posts a little easier to read for everyone else. Someone asks you to put the price in the title and that's enough for you to call it quits?

Anyway we all like to have a little fun while we hunt for deals!

You got my upvote, great laptop, good price, thanks for posting.

Thanks op, this is a hot lava deal given the specs. This one compares with the 2000$+ Dell xps and hp specter

Was about to grab the m1 macbook but now I am considering this one instead

What no dedicated graphics at this price? Good luck for those trying to get Oculus to work.

You find you got to have the brightness cranked to 90-100% to get a decent picture? I bought one two weeks ago and have this issue and seems common across yogas. Not sure I'd want an even more expensive one with the same issue.

I haven’t read reviews from previous models but the screen has been praised on this particular series from everything I’ve read.

I had the same debate but I’m happy going this route. Touch screen, more ram and drive space in this price range.
