Lenovo's Black Friday ad offers deals on ThinkPad laptops, Yoga 2-in-1 ones

The manufacturer only delivers a two-page ad, but it's full of various notebook specials -- and surprisingly no desktop sales.


Lenovo's Black Friday ad is full of laptops, laptops, and more laptops.

When it comes to Black Friday ads from PC manufacturers, Lenovo's skimpy two-page ad can't compare to HP's 15-pager, but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in a singular focus on laptops. From ThinkPad notebooks to Yoga 2-in-1s to Legion gaming laptops, Lenovo's Black Friday deals are almost completely centered on portables, eschewing any sales on the desktops it also produces.

Also under $700 (at $699.99) is the IdeaPad 710S with Core i5-7200U, 8 gigs of RAM, 256GB SSD, and 13.3-inch full HD display, while the Yoga 720 convertible has similar specs, but a $729.99 sale price. While not known for its gaming machines, Lenovo does have its Legion laptops such as the Y520, which is discounted for Black Friday to $749.99.
