Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Series

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s-ITL-20V90003GE

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.

86% Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Laptop Review: A Business Laptop but no TrackPoint | Notebookcheck
The ThinkBook series is Lenovo’s latest attempt at introducing a new brand upon the laptop market. The ThinkBooks are designed to excel in productive applications while offering a more modern design than their ThinkPad counterparts. Read on to find out whether Lenovo has achieved this with the ThinkBook 13s in our detailed review.
Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Boast Stellar Specs with Harmon Audio Included
Source: Gear Diary English
While I certainly wouldn’t be GAMING on this laptop, moderate web browsing, light working including Office and photo editing might be ideal for the ThinkBook 13s… heavier processing, including running strenuous applications for video editing will take a toll on the performance and battery life of the laptop. But the price is right at $800 for the base model, and whether you are a business owner or just your average web surfer, there’s enough to love about Lenovo’s laptop to justify purchasing.

75% Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review: A business notebook that you can use for play
Source: Hardware Zone English
While it sounds enticing, there are cheaper alternatives. ASUS’ ZenBook 14 UX431 and Acer’s Swift 3 Premium have comparable configurations with discrete NVIDIA graphics and they are priced at S$1,398 and S$1,198 respectively. What they lack, insofar as specifications are concerned, are the security features of the ThinkBook 13s like the TPM chip and webcam privacy shutter. If these security features are important to you, then the choice is clear. The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is a compelling option given its price, features, and specifications. For everyone else who just wants a notebook for general computing purposes and light gaming, know that there are other alternatives worth checking out.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13S Review
Source: Yugatech English
Lenovo is marketing the ThinkBook 13S as a business laptop with entertainment features. It looks great, durable, and portable. And given our experience with it, I think they’re right. It’s basically for work, meaning MS Office applications, emails, and web browsing. For entertainment, we’re narrowing it down to YouTube and Netflix. It would have been nicer though if they included an SD card slot.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review: A solid SMB laptop for a solid price
Source: Neowin English
The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is a laptop that I thoroughly enjoyed, and it seems like it's a perfect laptop to hand out to a team in an SMB. My biggest issues with it are that there's no USB Type-C charging and that the audio is just OK. The good news about the charger though, is that if you hand them out to a team, you've got a bunch of these chargers lying around.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review – finally something fresh
Source: Laptop Media English
So, we already said that this device is part of a brand new series in the laptop world. We were satisfied with our time with it. However, not need to lie here, the most flashy feature of the ThinkBook 13s is actually its look and the way it feels when handled. Its all-aluminum body hints at the premium nature of the device, while its matte finish is almost immune to fingerprints. In fact, the laptop kind of reminds us of the Lenovo Ideapad 730S, which is both thinner and lighter and proved to be a pretty decent piece of hardware, by the way.

Review: Lenovo ThinkBook 13s

The ThinkBook is a curious addition to Lenovo's catalogue. Designed to slot in between the well-established ThinkPad and IdeaPad product lines, its purpose is to offer small businesses a visually attractive package blending performance and reliability at an affordable fee.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s straddles the line between business and mainstream surprisingly well. Priced at $713, the laptop offers good multitasking performance thanks to its Core i5 processor and integrated graphics. It’s also got a fairly speedy SSD and decent battery life.

85% Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review – competitive 13-inch ultrabook (Core i5, UHD 620)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
There's great value in this ThinkBook 13s as a competitively-priced ultrabook for everyday use, for multitasking and school/office work. It looks nice and it's well built, gets a good matte screen and a decent keyboard, handles daily chores without chocking and lasts for quite a while on a charge. It's also one of the few user-upgradable ultrabooks of this generation. But don't expect this to offer ThinkPad features and traits at a fraction of the cost, as the two lines have little in common. In fact, as you'll find from the detailed review below, the ThinkBook 13s is rather a rebranded and tweaked IdeaPad, and as long as you're getting it with the right expectations, it should do very well by you.

70% Review: Lenovo ThinkBook 13s pairs solid business features with consumer-friendly touches
Source: PC World English
While Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th-Gen remains the superior business notebook in Lenovo’s stable, the MSRP is well over $1,000. (Prices on the base models have fallen to $999, as the 7th-Gen models have begun to ship.) It’s probably worth considering picking up a deal on the older X1 Carbon generation as well as considering the new ThinkBooks.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s isn’t the kind of laptop you’ll want to show off to your friends but it is one that’s remarkably consistent at letting you get the job done. It features both plenty of modern conveniences and decent specs. The design doesn’t get everything right and there’s definitely room for improvement but after my time with the ThinkBook 13s, I’m taking the sub-brand a lot more seriously than I did before. If Lenovo stuck an SD card slot on this thing, I could almost see myself using one. There’s far more to the ThinkBook 13s than just the subtraction that Lenovo have done to draw a line between it and from the pricier ThinkPad lineup. Even if there are limitations and shortcoming, this isn’t a story about compromise. The ThinkBook 13s is an adept workplace PC that’s nice to look at and easy to rely on.

By far, this has probably been the best Lenovo laptop I have reviewed. The awesome, long-lasting battery life will get users through the day and more. On the performance side, it runs really good, even with 8GB of RAM. The sound quality is powered by Harmen, so you know you’re getting as true sound as you can in a laptop. The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is definitely worthy of being a Top Pick for 2019.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is one of the best laptops I’ve used this year. It’s easily on the level of a MacBook in terms of hardware design and build quality. It has the performance chops to make it worthwhile and isn’t loaded with bloat like other Windows laptops. It’s an excellent machine that, for the right price, is definitely the Windows laptop to get for those who want to get work done on the go.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review: Unassuming but dependable
Source: It Pro English
The real killer, though, is the price. At just a hair under £500 exc VAT (£499.99, to be precise), it’s one of the cheapest business-focused devices we’re seen recently. Indeed, it’s capable enough to go toe-to-toe with laptops twice its price. If you’re looking for a competent jack-of-all-trades at a ludicrously good price, this is definitely one to snap up.

86% Lenovo ThinkBook 13s in review: Battery life or performance? You decide. | Notebookcheck
Lenovo's ThinkBook 13s disappointed with strong performance drops at first, but it recovered thanks to Performance Mode. Still: AMD's Ryzen 4 remains unmatched. The true strength of the 13-incher lies in the display, while maintenance has been toned down.

 

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.

Intel Core i5:

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

Intel Tiger Lake:

i5-1135G7: Tiger Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. Manufactured in an improved 10nm process at Intel.
