[Lenovo Canada] X1 & T Series Laptops 30% off

Lenovo is having a crazy sale on X1/T series laptops right now. At checkout, use code THINKJANSALE for up to 30% off - The code seems to work for all X1 or T series laptops.

EDIT: Be sure to make the purchase through Ebates for an additional 9% cashback, which is a pretty significant amount on a laptop purchase.

In my opinion, Lenovo Thinkpad laptops have some of the best keyboards on the market, are built like a tank, have a spill-proof keyboard, have very affordable warranty/accidental damage coverage, and even provide on-site repair if needed. Get it while it's hot!!

X1 Extreme-specific info below:

Notebookcheck gave the X1 Extreme a 91% review, which is exceptional.

Sale Pricing as follows:
1. 4-core i5 2.5ghz / 1080p screen / 8gb RAM / 256gb SATA SSD / 1050Ti | $1,693.30 (-$725.70 off $2419.00)
2. 6-core i7 2.2ghz / 1080p screen / 16gb RAM / 512gb M.2 SSD/ 1050Ti | $1,917.30 (-$821.70 off $2,739.00)
3. 6-core i7 2.6ghz / 4K touchscreen / 16gb RAM / 512gb M.2 SSD / 1050Ti | $2,575.30 (-$1103.70 off $3,679.00)
4. 6-core i7 2.6ghz / 4K touchscreen / 32gb RAM / 1TB M.2 SSD / 1050Ti | $2,911.30 (-$1,247.70 off $4,159.00)

The X1E line is aimed at business & creative professionals who need high end CPU's and mid-tier GPU's for additional gaming/additional rendering power, all in a 1.8kg (4lb) chassis. Closest competitors would be the Apple Macbook Pro 15, Dell XPS 15, and Razer Blade 15. While other gaming-focused laptops come with faster GPU's, they are usually built in a larger chassis and aren't as portable/slim as the X1E, or suited for office use.

Lenovo is kind of like Sportchek. Prices are normally discounted. 30% is not bad, but it is not truly 30% off. X1 carbon is a fantastic laptop, though.

Other than the screen, I don't know. I've seen similar spec'ed laptops as low as 1299 on boxing day (Currently 1699 on amazon) (ie. similar cpu, better video card, worse screen, slightly smaller ssd). And I (personally) still think the prices are going to come down.

I don't mind Lenovo as a brand (although, not particularly fond of Chinese based companies that report my personal info to Beijing). I'd clean install windows or linux on any new comp from them (although I generally do that for any new comp, regardless of brand).

I owned 3 Lenovos, the 3 still works. I don't ever remember reading bad reviews on Lenovo yet. How do you say that ?

About my perso information, I'm more scared of USA than China. China is far away and I don't plan on visiting it with drugs or to outsource prostitute because it's cheap labor sex. USA is very close and they could easily detain me for torrents or whatever **** you are into.

It seems like the ibm friend site no longer provides competitive pricing. The same model there is 20% off at $2,943.20. The site had 40% off the same model during the majority of last November.
If you can wait, I would suggest wait until the end of this year because mainstream manufacturers are putting the new RTX graphic cards in the flagship laptops. The new RTX will probably be considerably more powerful than current 1050ti MaxQ. Being a Thinkpad, X1E is likely to received the same treatment later. The finger print sensor is also not the best. There is no comparison between this one and the one found on an average smart phone. Another tiny issue is the battery size. 80WHr is big, but not XPS 15 big. If Lenovo upgrades the battery size of the X1E even with increased weight, I wouldn't mind at all.
With that said, I have been using 1080p X1E for about a month, it is a pleasure to use. After several BIOS updates, I am consistently getting 8 hours of light to moderate productivity work on one charge. Double RAM slots and M2 slots are a bonus for future proofing. If you can get 40% off, I would highly recommend it.

Can you suggest the similar spec'd laptops at this form factor? I am looking for something light but still powerful enough to run games at medium settings.

Who do you recommend for a laptop?
lenovo machines are great, they are the way laptops should be made
they have the cheap line for entry level or economy
the good ones for corporate users and
lighter portable
great difference in quality and prices
the E or L i think i cheaper
but the X line is amazing
great screen, built quality, fast, light.
i've owned 5 and wouldn't want to buy other brands for reliability
when doing support all users with dells and HP's kept bringing them in for repairs, lenovo users would rarely show up with problems (i mean they do break but not as often)
they are expensive but you are getting quality

Ohh, don't get me wrong. I absolutely hate that the US invades my privacy. It's a lot harder to circumvent the US intrusion ... Generally speaking, you have more legal recourse in the US than China.

Also, the danger with China isn't only if you travel there. If you are in a government post or position of power, they could conceivably gain leverage over you or state secrets.

lol people saying bad about lenovo laptops.

i've had mine for almost 5 years and still working fine, played heavy games in it too.

moderate price with good specs, it might not have good looks but who cares.
