Lenovo ThinkBook 13x Gen 2 review – portability is king
Source: Laptop Media English
Speaking of performance, the hardware works really well with the two-fan cooling solution. It never heats up, and it maintains its clock speeds for long periods of time. What we noticed, however, is that the CPU frequency does not boost very high at the beginning. Yet again, the core count of the processors, offered with this product pretty much makes for it. Now, let’s talk about features. Your privacy will be intact, thanks to the fingerprint reader, the IR face recognition scanner and the privacy shutter on the camera. Furthermore, you can take advantage of the “Zero touch login”, which automatically wakes your computer and logs you in as soon as fall within reach of the sensor. See, this is a special product. It is not for everyone. Some people like future expandability, others need more ports natively. However, if you’re into portability, it can hardly get any better than that.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
