We love a good Lenovo discount, especially on a high-end laptop like the ThinkPad. The laptops in the ThinkPad line are packed full of powerful components, and Lenovo chips a few bucks off of each component. On a laptop as beefy and expensive as a ThinkPad, this adds up. For instance, this powerful ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 should be over $3,500, but after Lenovo scrapes a few dollars off of each individual component, the total drops to an incredible $1,610. That’s an insane discount of over $2,400, and one of the best Lenovo laptop deals we’ve seen in a while. It’s still not necessarily cheap, but read on to see why it’s worth it.

Why you should buy the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 has components so powerful it’s almost intimidating. Until the release of the Gen 5 version, it was Lenovo’s most powerful non-workstation ThinkPad. Words like “workstation” might turn off the casual laptop user, but all it means is that this laptop is strong, versatile and can handle anything you’ll throw at it. There are four big components that stand out on this laptop: the CPU, the GPU, the RAM and the display. The processor is the 11th-Gen Intel i7-11850H. It’s not the most recent generation anymore, but it’s a solid eight-core processor that will conquer even demanding tasks like photo and video editing. The GPU is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which is more than capable of handling everything from rendering to modern AAA gaming. To top it all off, you get 16GB of RAM.

The final important feature to note is the display. It’s a 16-inch screen that runs at a resolution of 2560 x 1600. It adds the extra inches to the sides of the monitor, making it wider than your typical laptop. That resolution will have no problem playing anything short of 4K UHD videos. Whatever you watch will look colorful and rich on the 400 nit display that can show you 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut. If you’re interested in dipping your toes into professional photo or video editing, this ThinkPad has the guts and the display to back you up.

You can grab this super powerful laptop on Lenovo’s site for only $1,610, a modest price for such a beefy setup. Get it before Lenovo stops offering this insane $2,049 discount.
