Lenovo ThinkBook 13x G4 laptop review: One of the best subnotebooks apart from the keyboard

Like an XPS 13, but better. Lenovo's ThinkBook 13x G4 is a high-quality and compact subnotebook that delivers solid results in almost all disciplines. The IPS screen in 3:2 format is bright and offers 120 Hz, while the Core Ultra 5 125H is fast and the battery runtimes are also good. However, the ThinkBook falls short in terms of the keyboard and maintenance options.

Models from the ThinkBook series are primarily aimed at business customers who do not want to spend the high prices of ThinkPads on their employees. The new ThinkBook 13x G4 is a compact subnotebook that may also interest individual buyers as it offers decent performance, a large battery, a high-resolution 3:2 IPS display with a matte surface and an aluminum chassis for for around $1,100.

Our test model of the ThinkBook 13x G4 bears the model number 21KR0008GE and comes with the Core Ultra 5 125H, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD storage and a 2.8K display (2880 x 1920) for $1,106.

Case - ThinkBook with aluminum chassis

Fundamentally, the design of the ThinkBook 13x G4 does not differ from its cheaper siblings as the silver-grey case has a two-tone lid with large lettering and looks very plain upon first sight. While the cheaper models, such as the ThinkBook 16 G6, usually only have an aluminum screen lid and the rest of the case is made of plastic, the ThinkBook 13x G4 also uses aluminum for the base unit. The sides of the base unit are polished and the device has a very high-quality appearance overall. The base unit is not tapered at the sides, which makes the device appear somewhat bulkier than it actually is. 

Like all other models, Lenovo uses a camera hump, which looks very large here. It doesn't look nice, but at least it helps when opening the lid. Two things are noticeable when opening the lid: the very narrow screen edges and the significantly limited opening angle of a maximum of 135 degrees compared to the ThinkPads. Nevertheless, the hinges themselves are well adjusted and hold the lid securely in place apart from a minimal amount of rocking when adjusting the angle. Despite the thin design, the lid is very stable and we were unable to elicit any image errors or distortions. The stability of the base unit is excellent and only the middle keyboard area yields slightly under pressure. No creaking noises were detected. The workmanship also gives no cause for criticism.

As previously described, the ThinkBook 13x G4 appears somewhat thicker due to its design, but appearances are deceptive and at a height of just 12.9 mm, it is one of the thinnest devices in our comparison group and only undercut by the MacBook Air M3. Then again, the Lenovo laptop takes up less space on the desk than the Air M3 and is also one of the most compact models overall, so it can easily be stowed away in any bag. However, at 1.2 kg, it is also one of the heaviest devices here and the 65-watt plug-in power supply adds another 191 grams. The official data sheet also mentions a magnesium model with a weight of around 1 kg, but we were unable to find a corresponding configuration.

Equipment - 3x Thunderbolt 4

Lenovo equips the ThinkBook 13x G4 with three fast USB-C ports, including Thunderbolt 4. The positioning seems a little unusual at first, but turns out to be quite practical in practice. One of the ports is on the front right, where you can easily connect USB sticks, and the device can be charged on both sides. However, adapters are required for USB-A devices and there is no card reader either. There are optional models with Lenovo's Magic Bay connection, in which case the camera hump is thicker and equipped with pogo pins. Optional accessories such as a 4K webcam can then be connected here.

Communication

A WiFi 7 module is not yet installed in the ThinkBook 13x G4, but the well-known AX211 module from Intel is. This supports WiFi 6E as well as Bluetooth 5.3. In tests with our Asus reference router, the transfer rates were very high and stable. We also had no problems with signal stability.

Webcam

The 1080p webcam in the upper display frame does its job, but you shouldn't expect miracles. There is also an IR sensor for facial recognition via Windows Hello.

Maintenance

Excerpt from the maintenance manual.
Excerpt from the maintenance manual.

We were surprised when we opened the case: although the base plate can be easily removed, the options for maintenance are massively limited. The battery is attached to the base cover and connected to the mainboard with a ribbon cable, which is also screwed in place. This is also described in the maintenance manual, but the procedure may prove cumbersome for inexperienced users.

Input devices - Haptic touchpad, but weak keyboard

The keyboard is one of the weak points of the ThinkBook 13x G4, as the key travel is very short and the typing experience not very comfortable. The keystrokes themselves are precise and not too loud, but if you type a lot and are used to a keyboard with greater key travel, you should test the input before buying if possible. The layout is straightforward and there is now also a co-pilot key, although the vertical arrow keys are quite small. A two-stage white backlight, which can also be activated automatically via a sensor, is available.

A haptic touchpad is available for pointer control, which provides feedback via vibration motors. This works very well, but the clicking noise could be a little quieter. The advantage of this solution is that you can click anywhere on the pad and get the same feedback. The gliding properties of the glass surface are excellent. At 12 x 7.5 cm, there is enough space for movements/gestures.

Display - 2.8K IPS with 120 Hz

Minimal halos
Minimal halos

Lenovo forgoes an OLED screen on the ThinkBook 13x G4 and instead installs a high-resolution IPS panel in 3:2 format. Thanks to the resolution of 2880 x 1920, all content is very sharp and the colors vivid, even if not at OLED level. Overall, the subjective picture quality is very good, as bright areas do not appear grainy and movements benefit from the increased frequency. The absence of PWM flickering is also a major advantage and the response times are also inconspicuous. Both the brightness and the color temperature are automatically adjusted via a sensor.

The average brightness is 513 cd/m² and the black level slightly higher at 0.38 cd/m², but this still results in a very good contrast ratio. Halos are not a major problem and the panel also supports HDR content, but the maximum brightness is still 540 cd/m².

The display is already well adjusted ex works and our analysis with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) only shows a minimal blue cast, which is not noticeable in practice. All colors are already below the important DeltaE-2000 threshold of 3 compared to the sRGB reference color space, so calibration is not absolutely necessary. We were able to improve the display somewhat with our own calibration (the corresponding profile is available for free download above) and also eliminate the minimal color cast. The sRGB color space is almost completely covered, so the ThinkBook is suitable for video and image editing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
12.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 8.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
27.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.8 ms rise
↘ 14.5 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17673 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The bright and matte IPS panel performs very well outdoors, although direct sunlight and its reflections (see image) should of course be avoided. There are also no issues with viewing angle stability.

Performance - Core Ultra and up to 32 GB RAM

Interestingly, Lenovo only offers the ThinkBook 13x G4 with the Core Ultra 5 125H or with the Core Ultra 9 185H, but the popular Core Ultra 7 155H is not available. You also have to choose the Core Ultra 9 to upgrade from 16 to 32 GB of RAM, both of which come with moderate surcharges.

 
 

Testing conditions

As usual, Lenovo offers various power modes and, unlike the ThinkPad models, these are not directly linked to the Windows power settings. The profiles can either be switched via the pre-installed Vantage software or the Fn+Q key combination. We have listed the corresponding TDP values in the table below. For our tests, we used the Auto profile, which is active by default.

Power mode TDP CB R23 Multi Time Spy Graphics max. fan volume
Battery saver 44 -> 18 watts 5,536 points 2,471 points 33.9 dB(A)
Auto 51 -> 28 watts 9,194 points 3,248 points 40.7 dB(A) -> 36.8 dB(A)
Performance 51 -> 35 watts 12,188 points 3,382 points 42.5 dB(A)

In performance mode, the processor runs significantly longer at 51 watts, while in auto mode it is only a few seconds. If you need maximum CPU performance, this mode is worthwhile. For less demanding tasks in everyday life, you can use battery saver mode without hesitation and benefit from quieter fans.

Processor - Core Ultra 5 125H

The Core Ultra 5 125H in our test device belongs to Intel's current Meteor Lake generation and offers two performance cores less than the widely used Core Ultra 7 155H. The four existing P-cores also achieve a lower maximum clock rate of up to 4.5 GHz. In the ThinkBook, the processor consumes up to 51 watts for a few seconds before stabilizing at 28 watts, which can be clearly seen in our Cinebench loop. This level of performance is perfectly sufficient for everyday tasks, but the results are not really good and the Core Ultra 5 doesn't stand a chance against a Zen4 processor from AMD. Apple's passively cooled M3 also offers better performance, both in single and multi-core tests. In battery mode, the processor can also consume up to 51 watts, but then quickly drops to 25 watts, which is why the performance here is slightly lower than in mains operation (-4%).

Storage devices

Lenovo installs a compact M.2-2242 SSD with a PCIe 4.0 connection, which in our test device comes from Samsung (PM9C1a) and offers a storage capacity of 512 GB. After the first start-up, 422 GB remains. The transfer rates are okay, but performance does not remain stable under prolonged load. In everyday use, however, this has no effect, as performance is still sufficient (over 3.3 GB/s). Further SSD benchmarks are listed here.
