Want to upgrade to a fantastic 2-in-1 tablet that doubles as a sleek laptop but haven't found an affordable option yet? Luckily for you we've discovered this amazing deal over on Lenovo where its excellent Thinkpad X1 3rd gen tablet has a massive saving of $1,930.00.

Originally priced at $2,879, this saving of 67% is a fantastic deal on a renowned brand. The new price tag of $949 offers one of the lowest we've seen yet on a Lenovo. This device includes the 3k anti-reflective screen as well as a detachable keyboard. The Thinkpad X1 has an impressive 9.5 hour battery life, which alongside the sleek design, and weighing in at only three pounds, makes it the perfect device for those working on the go. It's no wonder the Thinkpad X1 series has earned itself a top spot as the best business laptop.

You have a decent drawing tablet with a 3k, 13-inch display

So what makes the ThinkPad X1 3rd Gen so great? If you're not familiar with 2-in-1 devices, they double up as both a tablet and a laptop. The ThinkPad X1 tablet comes with a detachable keyboard that easily pops on and off at your convenience dependant on how you're wanting to use your device. 

By using the tablet screen alone, you have a decent drawing tablet with a 3k, 13-inch display (4k is ideal but this is still good), but by popping on the keyboard you have a compact and portable laptop.
