Typically, 2-in-1 laptops are underwhelming as manufacturers put half of the effort towards the touch screen interface and another half towards the traditional laptop design. Lenovo’s Yoga series, however, sets itself apart with a robust experience on both ends.

Other deals of note
Like a number of retailers has decided in the last year or two, Best Buy physical stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, allowing its workers to eat a holiday meal with family instead of having to clock in at work. Of course, shoppers with free time on Turkey Day are able to still access deals through Best Buy’s website. In addition to the automatic reimbursement mentioned above, My Best Buy or Best Buy Totaltech members get to tap into exclusive deals on several “Member Mondays” between now and Black Friday.
