Lenovo Back to School Sale: Gaming PCs

Go ahead. Mix a little fun with your studies. We won’t tell! And really – buying a gaming laptop or gaming desktop for school isn’t such a crazy idea. Gaming systems are powerful, with fast processors, the latest graphics enhancements, and loads of storage for saving games and other files. Plus, when you shop the Lenovo Back to School Sale, you’re getting some of the lowest prices of the year.

Make no mistake. You don’t need a gaming system for school. Most students will get along fine with a standard PC with standard features. But some students (and their parents) consider video gaming an important part of everyday life. For them, it makes sense to get a game-ready system. And even if your focus is more on coursework than gaming, PCs outfitted with game-quality components are ready for anything, even the demanding software used in today’s most advanced academic fields.

Fortunately, you don’t need a Ph.D. in computer shopping to find a gaming system at Lenovo. We’ve got a wide selection of highly rated gaming laptops and gaming desktops, offered at a variety of price points, and our annual Back to School Gaming PC Sale adds even more discounts to the mix. Find yours today.

Sale-priced student gaming laptops and gaming desktops from Lenovo

Experienced video gamers and eSports enthusiasts– millions of students among them – turn to Lenovo for high-performance gaming laptops and gaming desktops. The big discounts at the Lenovo Back to School Sale are part of it, naturally. But it’s also due to our reputation as a leading maker of game-quality PCs – found at competitive gaming events and in homes and dorm rooms around the world.

Lenovo gaming laptops and desktops for school

The best thing about shopping for a gaming PC at Lenovo is the wide selection. Gaming laptops? Check. Gaming desktops? Check. Famous brands? We’ve got those, too. And they’re available at a broad range of prices that make them affordable no matter how little – or how much – you want to spend.

Which of these powerful Lenovo gaming PC brands will you choose? [Specific sale offers and product availability will vary.]

  • Legion gaming towers and cubes: The Lenovo Legion line-up of advanced gaming desktops is known for always offering the newest, fastest processors you can buy – with multiple unlocked CPU options capable of delivering still more power when you need it. Choose from vertical towers or space-saving cubes with features including speedy discrete graphics, dual-channel cooling, amazing lighting features, and more.
  • Legion gaming laptops: Our flagship Legion brand also includes highly popular gaming laptops that let you take your gaming rig with you without sacrificing speed and performance. The processors and graphics cards are fine-tuned for use in mobile systems, and the big, built-in displays deliver sharp, high-resolution visuals. Plus, with advanced lighting effects and colorful frame options, their style can’t be beat.
  • IdeaPad gaming laptops and desktops: Looking to mix gaming performance with affordability? Lenovo IdeaPad PCs – both desktops and laptops – can compete with some of the best gaming systems out there. You’ll find them at multiple price points and with a variety of game-level features – not to mention good looks. And like all of Lenovo PCs, many IdeaPad models are customizable, so you can “build” exactly what you need.

In fact, at Lenovo, your gaming options are virtually limitless. Nearly every PC brand we sell includes models suitable for gaming. Try a Yoga 2-in-1 for laptop/tablet versatility. Or, if you’re a school-all-day, game-all-night kind of student, our famous ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops can be equipped for gameplay, too.

Can a student use a gaming PC for school?

Can a student do schoolwork using a PC that’s built for playing today’s top-rated video games? Yes – without a doubt. There’s virtually no academic subject that can’t be pursued on a gaming system. After all, the same components that make a computer good for playing games – an advanced processor, fast graphics, and so on – will also support today’s most demanding educational software titles.

In many cases, the decision comes down to cost. Some students consider gaming to be almost like breathing. For them, buying a school PC that can’t also play video games would be unthinkable. But it’s important to remember that you can purchase far simpler (and cheaper) systems for doing online research, writing papers, and making mathematical calculations. So if price is a deciding factor, there are many options besides gaming systems. Especially for younger students, buying a game-quality PC for school is as much an investment in playing games as it is completing coursework.

However, some advanced students – like those taking high-level courses in engineering, artificial intelligence, film making, and so on – need a high-performance PC to run the software used in their curriculum. For these students, the same CPUs and other features needed for competitive gaming are – coincidentally – exactly what’s needed to run their computer-aided design programs, video editing software, and the like.

At Lenovo, we leave the choice to you. Lots of students use gaming systems for school. But lots of them don’t. One thing, though, is certain: you’ll find it hard to beat the discounts at our annual Back to School Gaming PC Sale.
