Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Lenovo’s ThinkPad T490 laptop. This configuration, with a Core i7-8665U chip, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, is down to $949 with the code “THINKT490” at checkout.
Normally, this model goes for around $1,150. While neither as thin (17.9mm) nor light (3.3 lbs) as some ultrabooks, the T490 isn’t huge, and it might be a better choice for those looking for a wider port selection. It comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port, two USB 3.1 (Gen 1) ports, an Ethernet jack, an HDMI 1.4 port, microSD and microSIM slots, and a dock connector. It has the kind of comfortable keyboard we see on most ThinkPads, and while the chipset isn’t the latest thing around, it should still provide good performance for the money with the plentiful RAM and SSD on board. There’s a 14-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen, too, which is rated at a decent-if-not-amazing 300 nits of brightness.
If you don’t need a new laptop, though, we also have deals on budget and premium noise-cancelling headphones, an iPad Air and Apple Smart Keyboard bundle, portable hard drives and SSDs, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
