Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s G2 ITL-20V90003GE

70% Lenovo ThinkBook 13s (Gen 2) review: Budget ThinkPad
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ThinkBook 13s is a sensible option for business users on a tight budget. For less than $1,000, you get a sleek aluminum chassis, fast performance, a high-res 13.3-inch display and a decent port selection. There are some downsides, like the shallow keyboard and card slot omission, but those can be resolved with accessories. If you can stretch your budget for a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, we recommend you do it. Lenovo's flagship is the best business laptop around for a reason. Not only is it lighter than the ThinkBook, but it has quad speakers, a much better keyboard and long battery life. But don't worry if you don't have the funds because the ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 makes for a nice alternative.

80% Lenovo Thinkbook 13S Review: Business On A Budget
Source: The Verge English
There are areas where the cracks show, of course. Battery life is underwhelming for the category, and the screen’s brightness is disappointing. You do get advantages, particularly when it comes to look and build quality, from ultraportables that are $200–$300 more. But there are certainly customers — especially in the business sphere, I imagine — who care more about having a portable, affordable device with decent connectivity than they do about having one that’s beautiful. For those people, this should be a fine choice.

Comment

Series: Unlike the widely-acclaimed ThinkPad series hailing from the very selfsame company brand, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s plugs itself as a business laptop with entertainment features centering around the theme of stress-free leisure in a potentially grueling workplace. The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s houses a couple of key features that enable the user to boot up the operating system with just a simple command whether they are sourced in the form of a fingerprint or voice activation.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is believed to measure up to a total approximation of 13.3 inch and is considered to be among the smallest compact-sized notebook models since it is under the average technical scale of 14 inch. This promotes the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s as extremely portable since its reduced dimensions enable it to take up less space over a working space while it can still be easily fitted into a commuting bag. Sticking true to the theme of being conveniently portable, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is packed with various features that render it faster and easier to focus on the task at hand. For instance, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s has a biometric login feature in the shape of a small circle, which replaces the conventional Power button – an oh-so basic button that can be commonly found on a majority of laptop models since the beginning of time. This small circle responses adeptly to human skin and the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s can be easily booted up with just merely a single touch. Aside from that, users can also wake the Lenovo ThinkBook s13 up from Sleep mode with voice recognition alone thanks to the innovative cloud artificial intelligence better known as Cortana. The integration of both of these features makes jumping back to work or any task at hand conveniently easy with system activation features that response in just under five seconds.

In addition, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is armed with built-in security features to tackle the revolving problem of easy access, which can be achieved from a single touch over the Power circle or mere voice activation alone. The default discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and any other business-critical information in conjunction with the security features existing along Windows 10. The ThinkShutter mechanism, which can be commonly found in the latest official releases of laptop models from the Lenovo brand, is a physical camera cover which can be slid over the front camera and block the lens from prying eyes from the other end. As mentioned before, the Power circle also functions as a biometric login in the form of a fingerprint reader. It can be configured to only detect the user’s fingerprint in order to gain legitimate access into the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
