Models from both the premium Yoga C940 series and mainstream Yoga C740 line -- both of which currently reside on our <a href="https://www.cnet.com/news/best-laptops-of-2020/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">best laptops of 2020</a> list -- are marked down, and a business-minded <a href="https://www.cnet.com/reviews/lenovo-thinkpad-x1-yoga-preview/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">ThinkPad X1 Yoga</a> (our favorite premium business 2-in-1) is discounted by more than $1,000. Also marked down is the IdeaPad 3, one of the best configurations you'll find in a laptop that costs less than $500.
Note that each of these deals require discount codes that we've listed below. Which that small caveat, let's dive into the deals.
Sarah Tew/CNET Lenovo's latest premium 2-in-1, the Yoga C940 boasts a sturdy and sleek all-metal design and a display that can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode. It can also instantly wake from sleep, one of the phone-like features it received courtesy of Intel's Project Athena. It also includes an active pen, which you must buy separately with the Yoga C740, and internal speakers that actually emit enjoyable audio. You can get the C940 with a 14- or 15-inch display. This model is the smaller 14-inch size and features an eighth-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The RAM is certainly ample for the price, but settling for a previous-gen Intel Core part is a bit of a bummer. As is the 256GB SSD when 512GB SSDs are on offer as you inch closer to $1,000. You can save $500 with code <strong>MEMDAY1</strong>. <a href="https://www.cnet.com/reviews/lenovo-yoga-c940-14-inch-review/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Read our Lenovo Yoga C940 review</a>. Sarah Tew/CNET It's not quite as thin and lightweight as the Yoga C940, but the Yoga C740 still features an all-metal chassis and a premium look and feel. And while it doesn't have all the extras of the C940, you still get features like pen support and a privacy shutter for the webcam. This 15-inch model features a tenth-gen Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a roomy 512GB SSD. With code <strong>MEMDAY2</strong>, you can knock $180 off the price and bring it to a very reasonable $800. At this price, you are usually looking at Core i5 CPUs and 256GB of solid-state storage capacity. <a href="https://www.cnet.com/reviews/lenovo-yoga-c740-14-inch-review/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Read our Lenovo Yoga C740 review</a>. Sarah Tew/CNET If the above Yoga C740 model is beyond your budget, this model steps you down to a tenth-gen Core i5 CPU and halves the solid-state storage to 256GB. With code <strong>MEMDAY7</strong>, you can save $130 and drop the price to $650. At this price, you usually must settle for a plastic body or one with some metal instead of the sturdy, thin, all-metal chassis of the C740. <a href="https://www.cnet.com/reviews/lenovo-yoga-c740-14-inch-review/" rel="noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Read our Lenovo Yoga C740 review</a>. Lenovo <p>You'd be hard pressed to find a better laptop for the money. This 15-inch budget model features an AMD Ryzen 3 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. I've never seen a 512GB SSD in a laptop priced this low. At this price, you would be lucky to find a 256GB SSD and are more likely deciding between 128GB of solid-state storage or more storage in a much slower, spinning hard drive. The only downside is the screen resolution; the 15.6-inch display has a 1,366x768 resolution, which is the norm on entry-level laptops instead of 1,920x1,080. With code <strong>IDEADB1</strong>, you can save $180 to crater the price to a hard-to-believe $410. </p><a href=https://www.cnet.com/news/the-5-best-laptop-deals-at-lenovos-memorial-day-sale/#ftag=CAD590a51e>Original Article</a>
