We consider the Lenovo Yoga 9i (Gen 8) with Intel 13th Gen the best Windows laptop, and it just got its first big discount.
Lenovo only launched the Yoga 9i with a 13th Gen Intel CPU in April of this year, but the powerful and flexible laptop is already on sale. You can grab the Lenovo Yoga 9i for $250 off at Best Buy right now. That discount is available for two models of this PC, but the deal ends on July 5, 2023, so you’ll have to act quickly.
This is the first sale/discount we have seen for this laptop since its release. Interestingly, it’s also $50 less than the previous generation of the Yoga 9i, also on sale, with similar specs but an older CPU.

$1,440 now $1,150 at Best Buy
This flexible laptop runs on the latest Intel Core CPU and Iris Xe graphics. It can flip around into four modes and supports both touch and a pen and laptop cover in the box.
Price Check: Lenovo $1,445
At $1,150 (normally $1,400), the most affordable version of the Yoga 9i runs on an Intel Core i7-1360P processor and Intel Iris Xe. That CPU is from Intel’s latest generation, so right now is a nice opportunity to jump into the current gen at a discount.
The $1,400 model (normally $1,650) also runs on an Intel Core i7-1360P and Intel Iris Xe graphics. The memory (16GB) is also the same. The main difference is that the less expensive model has a 90Hz 2.8K OLED display, while the premium Yoga 9i has a 4K screen. The more expensive model also has double the storage, giving you 1TB to work with.
Lenovo also has a discount on the Yoga 9i at the moment, but it’s not worth it if you can order from Best Buy. Lenovo states a savings of $255, but the listed retail price is higher. That means that the same Yoga 9i with a 13th Gen Intel CPU and Intel Iris Xe graphics is $1,445 through Lenovo.Last year’s Lenovo Yoga 9i was good enough to top our list of the best Windows laptops. Lenovo built on that successful PC from 2022 by rounding its corners, brushing its edges, and refreshing its internals. The end result is a laptop that’s received praise from many around the web.
