The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a favorite among mainstream productivity consumers and business users, thanks to its lightweight design, amazing keyboard and long battery life. As we enter holiday deals season (yes, it’s a season now), we’re eagerly watching deals on one of the best Ultrabooks you can buy.

That’s why we’re making a page dedicated to deals on the two newest ThinkPad X1 Carbon models, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 and ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7. The Gen 8 is the most recent, and packs your choice of 10th Gen U-series Intel processors. The Gen 7, meanwhile, mostly has 8th gen U-series processor options but has some 10th gen models. These are the two most powerful Intel low-power processor options available right now, so both are still plenty relevant.

Both the Gen 7 and Gen 8 X1 Carbon laptops have also been out long enough that we’re seeing deals on both, though the Gen 7 model deals have a cheaper starting point. If the X1 Carbon isn't your style, check out the best Cyber Monday Dell XPS 13 deals or our general Cyber Monday laptop deals hub.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 is the most recent ThinkPad X1 Carbon model on the market, and has 10th gen Intel U-series processor options starting from Core i5. That’s as powerful as you’re going to get for an Intel low-power series processor, and it packs Intel UHD graphics. 

That’s great, because this laptop also has display options ranging from FHD to 4K. And that low-power chip should also save you some battery life, with the Gen 8 hitting a 10:45 lifetime on our benchmark.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 came out a little under a year before the X1 Carbon Gen 8, but is still plenty relevant and has a cheaper starting point for its deals. It has 8th gen (and some 10th gen) Intel U-series processor options starting from Core i5, which is still the second most powerful Intel U-series line around (at least from Intel). 

It also uses Intel UHD graphics and has display options ranging from FHD to 4K. At 9:30, it’s battery life is somewhat shorter than its successor, but is still plenty useable and might be worth a price drop for some.
