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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.
