Lenovo’s in a price-slashing kind of mood at the moment, it would seem, as a weekend sale is planned with some major discounts on PCs – and indeed there are already some serious bargains to be had on back-to-school machines, including a fantastic deal on a 4th-gen ThinkPad X1 Yoga.

This ThinkPad X1 convertible is normally priced at £2,139 but it’s been reduced to £1,399.99 currently, meaning you save £739. Check out this deal and a couple of other bargains you can currently get in the boxes below, but as mentioned, a whole new batch of discounts are coming over the weekend.

Lenovo’s weekend sale features up to 35% off desktop PCs and Lenovo ThinkCentre machines – and more besides. All you need to do is hit up the Lenovo site at 6pm today, and use the code WEEEKENDSALE to knock the money off.

The sale runs through until Sunday, September 27 at midnight.
