If you’re in need of a new laptop, the end of financial year sales is a great time to pick one up. Lenovo is offering up to 55% off laptops for its own EOFY deals, and we’ve even spotted some models with Intel’s latest 12th-gen hardware with up to 38% off on Lenovo’s site.
We’ve also found some Lenovo Chromebooks going for super cheap (including the awesome IdeaPad Duet Chromebook for less than AU$300), but it turns out the best prices on these machines are available on Amazon. Chromebooks make particularly good laptops for students, or anyone looking for something affordable for web-based work.
There aren’t many gaming laptops discounted in Lenovo’s EOFY sale, but there is a good selection of ThinkPads and 2-in-1 Yoga configurations on sale – below are our top picks to jump on before June 30.
Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook |
AU$499 AU$297 on Amazon (save AU$202)
We recommend Lenovo’s IdeaPad Duet Chromebook as one of the best student laptops you can buy, and at this reduced price of AU$297, it’s even easier to recommend. We think it strikes a great balance between tablet portability and Chromebook utility, just keep in mind it’s small at 10.1-inches. Head to Amazon to land this deal.
Lenovo ThinkPad E14 (Gen 4) | i5 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$1,919 AU$1,179 on Lenovo (save AU$740)
Intel’s 12th-gen silicon has finally made its way to Lenovo’s new laptops. This ThinkPad E14 is outfitted with an Intel i5-1235U processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, and despite being a new model, it’s discounted steeply for EOFY. To get AU$740 off, you’ll need to enter the code TA-INTEL-E14 at checkout – shout out to (ahem) tightarse on OzBargain for the code.
Lenovo ThinkPad E15 (Gen 4) | Ryzen 5 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$1,779 AU$999 on Lenovo (save AU$780)
This laptop is similar to the model above, except it’s got a 15-inch display (rather than 14-inch) and it’s sporting an AMD processor (instead of Intel). Under the hood is a Ryzen 5 5000 series CPU, alongside 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. You can save AU$780 on this machine by entering the code EOFY at checkout.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i | i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$3,499 AU$2,299 on Lenovo (save AU$1,200)
We rate the Yoga 9i as one of the best Lenovo laptops you can buy. It’s a powerful and stylish 2-in-1 laptop, and we actually gave it 5/5 stars in our review – a rare feat indeed. This model has an 11th-gen Intel i7-1165G7 at its heart, so while you’re not getting a bleeding edge CPU, it’s still an excellent machine. To nab AU$1,200 off, use the code EOFY.
Lenovo Yoga 7i | i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD |
AU$2,439 AU$1,799 on Lenovo (save AU$640)
This 15-incher is another Lenovo laptop with a 2-in-1 form factor, making it a good shout if you want versatility. It’s also packing an Intel i7-1165G7 chip, as Intel's 12th-gen silicon is yet to make its way to these machines. The upside is you can get it for a pretty sweet discount, and this 11th-gen chip is still plenty powerful. Enter the code EOFY at checkout.
Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook |
AU$799 AU$497 on Amazon (save AU$302)
The Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 is the follow up to the Chromebook above, and if you’ve got a little extra cash to spare, it could be worth moving up to this model. This version is larger, with a 13.3-inch display that ultimately gives you a larger keyboard too (which is entirely detachable). Lenovo has the Chromebook for AU$599, but Amazon has it for AU$497.
