From June 2 to June 8 Dell is serving up deep discounts on Yoga, Surface, and HP laptops – some of which easily shave $400 off the price tag.

In this article we’ve broken down the best deals pound-per-pound. We should also add that there a number of other, non-laptop deals that we’ll get into later.

First up on our list is a name many know well in the Lenovo Yoga 7i 14” laptop for $1,099.95, or $400 off, until June 8. Best Buy is currently offering a discount on both the 14” model and the 13.3” Yoga 6, which has many of the same internals, but dials in on a smaller screen with storage.

For now, let’s start with the Yoga 7i.

Lenovo Yoga 7i Specs

  • Resolution: 2240 x 1400 at 14” across
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-1235U at 1.3 GHz
  • Graphics: Integrated Intel Iris Xe
  • Storage: 512 SSD
  • RAM: 16GB DDR5
  • Battery: 16-hrs maximum
  • Ports: 1 x USB-A, 2 x USB-C, x1 HDMI, and x1 mic/ headphone jack
  • Operating System: Windows 11
  • Dimensions: 31.66 x 1.73 x 22.02 cm at 1.5 kg
  • Warranty: 1-year manufacturer’s warranty for parts and labour

Lenovo’s line of Yoga laptops marry rock-solid build quality with ease of use. As a 2-in-1 laptop you also get the convenience of a 360 hinge for browsing or streaming. The fact that its screen clocks in at over 2K is still mostly unrivaled at this price point without drastic concessions to build quality.

On that note, the Yoga 7i feels great to use from top to bottom. The keyboard in particular is great for long typing sessions provided you can handle the 14” screen. The port selection is just as robust as the material quality as well. Of special note is the USB-C being DisplayPort integrated – meaning you’re not limited to a sole HDMI connection.

The only knock against the Yoga 7i, and many Ultrabooks or 2-in-1s, is its Integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics card. Simply put, this is a bog-standard integrated graphics card. It’ll keep the lights on – especially when it comes to games 5 or 10 years old at medium-low settings – but won’t provide anywhere near top-of-the-line performance. Given its form factor we find the Yoga line to be better suited for those who like a little Netflix or Amazon Prime in the evening rather than running the gaming gauntlet.

Meanwhile, we also have the Yoga 7i’s little brother with the Yoga 6 13.3” laptop for $899.99, or $350 off. This is the second deepest deal on this list – so look no further if you want to min-max your savings.

The Yoga 6 is, generally speaking, a half-step down from the Yoga 7i in every regard. You get a 2K screen, not 2.2K, a lower grade of RAM with DDR4, and naturally that slightly smaller screen. The other internals, however, are a more mixed story.

The Yoga 6 has the same SSD storage and raw RAM as the 7i. However, its gpu and cpu excel at slightly different things. For instance, the Yoga 6 handles multi-thread core processing better than the Yoga 7i. These differences are fairly minute however.

Next up we have the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 at 15.6” across for $799.99, or $300 off. This is the second deepest cut for this sale.

Let’s take a closer look.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 Specs

  • Resolution: 1920 x1080 at 15.6” across
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-1335U at 1.3 GHz
  • Graphics: Integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics
  • Storage: 512 GB SSD
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Battery: 8-hrs maximum
  • Ports: 2 x USB-A, x1 USB-C, x1 SD card reader, and mic/headphone jack
  • Operating System: Windows 11 Home
  • Dimensions: 23.5 x 1.79 x 35.93 cm at 1.6 kg
  • Warranty: 1-year manufacturer’s warranty for parts and labour

The word to define the IdeaPad Slime 3 is reasonable. Everything about this machine is designed to carefully strike a balance between ease of use and build quality. Just keep in mind that the Intel Iris XE Graphics card isn’t intended for heavy VRAM usage.

In terms of internals, the IdeaPad Slim 3 gives you everything you could need for a dedicated office or school laptop. The i-5 processor isn’t likely to break the sound barrier, but it’ll keep you humming along without any issues for low-intensity usage.

The only disappointment here is a middling 8-hrs of battery life.

This is enough to get through the day, but just barely. Consumer reports also indicate that you can expect the battery life to drop to 6 or 7 hours depending on usage after breaking in the IdeaPad Slim.

We also found that the keyboard and large screen are perfect for those who tab hop while working. At 15.6-inches across readability is dramatically increased. The keyboard is also comfortable for long typing sessions, and the slim form factor make this IdeaPad easy to huck around.

The last item on this list is a heavy hitter in the Microsoft Surface Studio 14.4” laptop for $2,349.99, or $300 off.

This deal is actually lasting a little longer than the others. You can snag the surface up until June 18, unlike the other items on this list.

Now, onto the finer points.

Laptop Specifications

  • Resolution: 2400 x 1600 at 14.4” across
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-11370H at 3.0 GHz
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti
  • Storage: 512 GB SSD
  • RAM: 16GB LPDDR4x
  • Battery: 18-hrs maximum
  • Ports: x2 USB-C with USB 4.0/ Thunderbolt 4, x1 surface connect port, and x1 3.5mm mic/ headphone jack
  • Operating System: Windows 11 Home
  • Dimensions: 22.83 x 1.89 x 32.33 cm at 1.82 kg
  • Warranty: 1-year manufacturer’s warranty for parts and labour

The Surface Studio’s big selling point is its 3 distinct screen positions. You can keep the Studio in laptop mode, angle it for “stage mode” for presenting slide decks, or fold the screen back onto the keyboard. In terms of hardware, the Microsoft Surface Studio is brimming at the gills with both power and poise. In particular, the combination of an Intel Core i7 CPU and the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is a winner. This will open the door using a host of creative-focused programs from the Adobe Suite to video editing software, or even animation and rendering through Blender or AutoCad.

In terms of build quality the Surface Studio feels overall great to use – especially in laptop mode. The webcam at 1080p in particular is a standout as is the keyboard. With that being said, the Studio is a chunky laptop at 1.82 kg and has massive speakers built into the sides.

This however comes at a price; the Surface Studio lacks when it comes to ports. We appreciate the inclusion of x2 USB-C connections, but having a dedicated HMDI connection plus suite of lower speed USB-A ports would be appreciated.

One word of warning here: keep in mind that Surface Connect is the main charging method for this machine.

Our only point against the Surface Studio is its storage options. The 512 GB SSD is a fine start, but with 1TB SSDs becoming increasingly more common we’ve come to expect just a smidge more storage than what’s on offer. The accompanying RAM is actually a nice surprise at 16GM of LPDDR4x memory.

As mentioned at the top of the article Best Buy is also offering some good deals on PC peripherals.

If you’re in the market for a laptop you may also be looking for a good chair or standing desk. If so, Best Buy and Dell have you covered with a selection of 3-models at a variety of discounts. For instance, we have an excellent Razer Iskur X ergonomic gaming chair for $399.99, or $250 off. If that’s a little too pricy they’re also offering a gentle $50 off the Naz Mesh Expert Office Chait for a new price of $199.99.

Lastly, Best Buy is also offering $100 off Ins Brand adjustable standing desks for a new retail price of $299.99. If you work from home this is very much worth a look to improve posture and overall health after long working sessions.


Ultimately our top pick for value and money is the Yoga 6 13.3” laptop for $899.99. Although the Lenovo Yoga 7i 14” laptop for $1,099.95 has overall better performance.

With that being said, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3 at 15.6” across for $799.99 is the very definition of a budget laptop, and one that feels good to type on too.

Lastly the Microsoft Surface Studio 14.4” laptop for $2,349.99 is ideal for creatives on the go. If your laptop goes with you everywhere this could very well be your next best friend. Even so, we suggest being slightly cautious as the downsides mentioned above, like the lack of and HDMI output, are very real deal breakers for many.

All prices were accurate as of June 2.
