It may be tempting to wait for Amazon Prime Day this year, but if you're shopping for Back to School deals on student laptops than I guarantee you'll want to check out Lenovo's Black Friday in July (opens in new tab) sale going on right now. Offering Prime Day-beating discounts of up to 60% off their most popular laptops, students can get their hands on a powerful laptop for cheap today.
While we're expecting Amazon Prime Day (opens in new tab) to have a pretty solid selection of student laptops on sale, it's not going to be anywhere near as impressive as the selection Lenovo has right now. Especially considering that some of their best student laptops (opens in new tab) – as well as some of their best laptops (opens in new tab) in general – are getting price cuts upwards of $2,300 off ahead of Prime Day 2022.
Shop all laptop deals at Lenovo's Black Friday in July sale (opens in new tab)
Featuring a broad mix of high-end premium machines and budget-friendly laptop PCs that fit almost any budget, Lenovo's getting a head start with their Prime Day-competing laptop sale this week.
There's a ton of doorbuster deals to check out, including some incredibly cheap student laptop deals to take advantage of. Below is just a quick peak at some of my top choices for best laptop deals (opens in new tab) at Lenovo today:
Best Laptop Deals Today
- $110 off the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14" laptop – on sale for $254.99 (opens in new tab)
- $170 off the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3 11" laptop – on sale for $269.99 (opens in new tab)
- $625 off the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 Gen 2 15" Intel laptop – on sale for $652.29 (opens in new tab)
- $740 off the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 4 14" AMD laptop – on sale for $727.15 (opens in new tab)
Student laptop deals aren't the only offers you'll find during the sale, however. Lenovo's Black Friday in July sale covers a wide range of products, including mobile phones, desktop PCs, gaming accessories, and more. A solid selection of deals on gaming laptops and accessories (opens in new tab) is available to browse through, and while they aren't the largest discounts available they offer a good amount of savings.
For example, a solid budget-friendly mid-ranged gaming laptop – the Legion Slim 7i 15" RTX 2060 (opens in new tab) gaming laptop – is on sale for $1,229.99 during the event. A savings of almost $600 is an enticing offer to say the least, but with the RTX 2060 under the hood may not be the most powerful option available for gamers who need the best performance from their machine.
Other gaming accessory deals, however, are a must-see for anyone looking to get some upgrades for cheap before Prime Day arrives. The Lenovo Legion M500 RGB (opens in new tab) gaming mouse is on sale for $37.99, offering a chunky 36% off during Lenovo's Black Friday in July sale. At this price, it's easily one of the best gaming mouse (opens in new tab) deals available before Prime Day 2022 arrives.
It may be temping to hold out until Amazon Prime Day 2022 comes around on July 13, but coming from a deals expert there's a much better selection of student laptop deals here that offer more bang for your buck.
Prime Day tends to have a decent selection of laptop deals to check out, but after going through two Prime Day events I can tell you with confidence that you'll be hard pressed to find comparable offers to Lenovo's right now.
