Lenovo Laptop Sale
Expiration: September 2
Most laptops in this sale earn their full discounts via coupon codes listed below their details on the sale page, and on their individual product pages. For any that don't, try using coupon code "EXTRAFIVE" to save a very predictable extra 5%. It's interesting that 8GB RAM and 16GB RAM models are almost equally represented – could we finally be making 16GB the accepted standard?

Asus VivoBook 2nd-Gen. Ryzen 5 15.6" Laptop
Lowest By: $22
Expiration: August 13
While this laptop is great value, I do have to throw some water on their claim that it's good for "work or play" – specifically, the "play" part. Unless you're referring specifically to lightweight card games or some very retro titles, the onboard Vega 8 chip isn't going to get you very far. But it does feature a 2nd-generation AMD Ryzen 5 3500U 2.1GHz quad-core CPU, 15.6" 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution LCD, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 10th-Gen. Ice Lake i7 15.6" Touch Laptop
Price: $699.99 for members
Shipping: $10 s&h
Lowest By: $240
Finally, we return to the good ship Lenovo, via the bulky cargo liner Costco, for this $240 savings. That's based on laptops with similar specs to this model, which features a 10th-generation Intel Core i7-1065G7 1.3GHz Ice Lake quad-core CPU, 15.6" 1920x1080 (1080p) IPS touchscreen display, 12GB RAM, 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD, and Window 10 Home 64-bit.
Note: Non-members pay a $35 surcharge.
