Lenovo ThinkBook 13x G1-20WJ001KGE

It is a well-known fact that the ThinkBook brand has been killing it by delivering great notebooks, with adequate performance and beautiful designs. Similarly, the ThinkBook 13x is the latest of the bunch coming packed with vPro certified Tiger Lake CPUs and a plethora of features. In a nutshell, the ThinkBook brand takes the features, build quality, and stability of the ThinkPad brand, and gives it premium materials and a more appealing exterior, in order to capture the minds of the consumers.
Truly sticking to the theme of premium materials, the ThinkBook 13x is entirely made of metal, with aluminium for the lid and a magnesium/aluminium alloy for the base and bottom panel, which is high on the materials pyramid. In addition, the lid and base also have a sandblasted anodized finish, which gives them a matte appearance while limiting the number of smudges and fingerprints. Apart from that, the lid is split horizontally and has a two-tone finish. In terms of its colour variations, there are two colours which include Cloud grey or Storm grey. In terms of its weight and height, the laptop comes in at 1.13 kg and 12.9 mm, respectively, which is incredibly lightweight. As far as the display is concerned, the laptop comes with two display choices. While both of them are identical, the only difference being that one of them has touchscreen support and the other does not. Otherwise, the display has QHD+ resolution, meaning a 16:10 aspect ratio and uses an IPS panel. The display also has a max brightness of 400 nits, a contrast ratio of 1200:1, and covers 100% of the sRGB colour gamut. Regardless of the display selected, it still comes with a Gorilla Glass cover and Dolby Vision support, along with an anti-fingerprint coating.
In terms of its performance, the laptop offers only two CPU options with their own respective iGPU offerings. Both of which are part of the Tiger Lake U-series and have a TDP of only 15W. In addition, they are also vPro certified, meaning that in theory, they should have higher stability and performance. The entry configuration has the Core i5-1130G7 and the Core i7-1160G7 with up to 16GB RAM and up to 1000GB storage. As for the features, the I/O is pretty lacking, consisting of only two Thunderbolt 4 ports and one 3.5 mm audio jack. In addition, there is also Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 support. Apart from that, in traditional ThinkPad fashion, there is a spill-resistant backlit keyboard, along with a Mylar-surfaced touchpad, with Precision Touchpad (PTP) support. On the other hand, the audio is on a very high level with a Four Array Microphone setup and 360° Near Field coverage, along with a Stereo speaker setup with Dolby Atmos support, which are actually provided by Harman, a well-known name in the audio space. In a nutshell, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13x review: A thin and light laptop that costs way less than it should
Source: XDA Developers English
Given that this thing barely costs over a thousand dollars in this configuration, it’s a solid buy. The Lenovo ThinkBook 13x is just so good. It’s thin, light, and compact, making it easy to go wherever with you. And it’s stylish in it’s two-tone silver color. The biggest drawbacks are the 720p webcam and that battery life doesn’t really stand out. As long as you can live with those things, I don’t know what else you’re looking for. The thing is that this is just great all-around. It doesn’t have some flashy new features or anything like that. It just gets the job done, and the things that are critical to the core experience are great. To me, this feels like it’s key to the ThinkBook brand. If you’re a small business that can’t go in on buying 500 ThinkPads for a big building full of employees, you’re probably looking at something like this. If you are, it checks just the right boxes.

80% Lenovo ThinkBook 13x review: Is this business laptop worth $1,200?
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ThinkBook 13x is a young whippersnapper that thought it could steal its predecessor’s shine, but the ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 is superior in many ways. It has a better variety of ports, zippier performance and quicker video transcoding. On top of that, its battery runtime is slightly longer. Of course, the ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 had its moments. It crushed its rivals in the file transfer, brightness and graphics tests. That being said, the ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 might be a better choice if that extra battery runtime boost matters to you. It’s also a decent option if you do some video transcoding here and there and you want a machine that saves you time. And if you dislike dongles, you’ll appreciate the ThinkBook 13s Gen 2’s wider variety of I/O options. Plus, it’s much cheaper than the ThinkBook 13x and serves up better processing performance (a ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 with an 11th Gen Core i5 CPU only costs $769 at Walmart). Still, the ThinkBook 13x has its niche audience.

Honestly, I love the ThinkBook series from Lenovo, but it didn’t do it for me this year. And that’s only because of the battery life being so underwhelming. Even the previous ThinkBook we reviewed had better battery life. Other than that, I enjoyed reviewing the ThinkBook 13x.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13x is a capable ultraportable thanks to its lightweight design, productive 16:10 screen, and quality keyboard, touchpad, and speakers. It's reasonably priced and even comes with a Bluetooth mouse. But Lenovo might have shaved off a tenth of an inch too much from the similar ThinkBook 13s Gen 2, which has a better port selection and higher performance. Nonetheless, both ThinkBooks are worthy and economical alternatives to the premium-priced Dell XPS 13 and Razer Book 13.

60% Lenovo ThinkBook 13x review: Thinner, lighter, and way too expensive
Source: Digital Trends English
No. The ThinkBook 13x is a nice laptop, but it’s currently incredibly overpriced and, even at a more reasonable cost, simply doesn’t warrant buying it over its (very slightly) larger sibling, the ThinkBook 13s.

80% Lenovo ThinkBook 13x review (Intel Core – Evo, 16:10 touchscreen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Whether it’s for business or pleasure, this ThinkBook 13x checks most of the boxes that a typical user would want in a modern ultrabook. The premium craftsmanship, the good typing experience, and the punchy and practical 16:10 touchscreen are among the main selling points of this series, alongside the snappy everyday use experience and long battery life. On the other hand, the minimalistic IO and the finicky clickpad and wifi connection might steer some of you away, especially at the high prices that Lenovo demand for this series at this point.

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.
