Deal | Lenovo ThinkBook 13x with 16:10 1600p touchscreen, 512 GB PCIe4 NVMe SSD, Thunderbolt 4, and 16 GB RAM now on sale for $1040 USD
Lenovo is currently running a sale on its latest Intel Evo-certified ThinkBook 13x laptop. Unlike the consumer-centric IdeaPad series or business-centric ThinkPad series, the ThinkBook series is a middle-ground option that students or smaller businesses might prefer.
Based on our time with a test unit, the two most compelling attributes of the ThinkBook 13x are its bright 16:10 display with full sRGB coverage and support for Thunderbolt 4 accessories. The target audience of office and business users will certainly appreciate the taller display and excellent docking capabilities of the system.
Drawbacks to the sale configuration include the Core i5-1130G7 CPU which can be up to 30 to 40 percent slower than the more common Core i5-1135G7 in multi-threaded loads. Secondly, port options are limited despite the Thunderbolt 4 support since the chassis integrates nothing but USB-C. Owners are therefore forced to rely on USB-C hubs or adapters for most accessories.
