'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

The Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is just around the corner, but Lenovo is springing ahead with its Semi-Annual Sale. With these major discounts, you can get $1,500 off a ThinkPad P14s Intel Mobile Workstation among other laptop accessory deals, like 40% off the Logitech M30 wireless mouse.

Plus, if you're a student or teacher, you can get an extra 5% off once you verify your status. You can also apply for Lenovo financing to pay in monthly installments instead of the entire cost upfront. And from October 10 to October 16, you'll earn double the reward points if you purchase through the site.

We analyzed all the discounts to round up the best Lenovo Semi-Annual Sale deals below.

  • Current Price: $979
