It’s not quite as thin and light as the flagship X1 Carbon, and its display is a smidge smaller, but the 13-inch ThinkPad X390 is a rugged laptop built for business. This configuration features the standard component lineup in a midrange laptop: a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The 13.3-inch display features a 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution and an anti-glare finish. With code EXTRAFIVE, you can get this model for nearly half its list price.

Lenovo’s budget two-in-one convertible Yoga features a 13.3-inch display that’s not as roomy as the display options on the pricier Yoga C940 below but could make an affordable and versatile laptop for students learning on campus or from home this school year. You can save $200 with code KICKOFFSALE2020 on this model that features a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The storage capacity is a boon as this price where 256GB SSDs are more common. And the 13.3-inch touch display features a full HD (1,920×1,080-pixel) resolution, which creates a sharper picture than other budget laptops that serve up only a 1,366×768-pixel resolution.
