88.1% Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga G4 Intel convertible review: Shorter battery life than AMD | Notebookcheck
The ThinkPad L13 Yoga G4 comes with both Intel and AMD options. Intel offers better single-thread performance and Thunderbolt support as expected, but expect louder fans and shorter runtimes than the AMD alternative.
Lenovo Thinkpad L13 Yoga Gen 4 Review Lenovo'S Convertible Thinkpad L13 Yoga Gen 4 Is A Typing Hit, But Performance Miss
Source: USA Today English
The ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 is a compact 2-in-1 productivity laptop with a touchscreen display that folds back 360 degrees and can be used like a tablet. It features a fantastic keyboard, a standard ThinkPad Track Point, and a built-in stylus. The power button doubles as a fingerprint sensor and, just like the IR webcam, lets you reliably log into your account using Windows Hello. Purchasing this laptop will leave you with a good feeling, knowing it was partially made from recycled materials. ThinkPads have a legendary reputation for high build quality, they’re generally easier to repair, and this model has several user-replaceable parts. Each unit is also covered by a generous warranty. Battery life, performance, and the IPS screen are weak points, though.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 Review
Source: PC Mag English
Average is a good word for the ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4: While its excellent keyboard, long battery life, and standard pen are standouts, everything else merely checks the boxes, with a screen that doesn't try hard enough and no special features to speak of. Nor is it a speedy performer, though it's perfectly fine for the likes of Word and Excel. Corporate buyers getting volume discounts will probably find more to like about it, but for the rest of us, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 8 is easily a better option, offering stronger performance and superior features at about the same cost.

77% Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 laptop review: Bend it like Business
Source: PC World English
Sometimes the flexibility of a 2-in-1 laptop is really nice to have and the ThinkPad Yoga L13 Gen 4 proves that you don’t need to fuss with a detachable keyboard to get tablet-like convenience. If you rarely fold the screen back into a tent, or flat into tablet mode, you can still have a great ultrabook with lots of power and a nice keyboard. The only real weak point with this computer is its so-so screen that’s just not quite bright enough. And, due to the ThinkPad pedigree, it’s hardly the pick for value-minded shoppers with a high MSRP. Because of those issues, it’s probably best that this model stay in the business world. Otherwise, the Yoga L13 is worth a look whether you’re a solo professional with a penchant for scribbling away on documents or a corporate IT person who wants to give their company one model that can fit a bunch of needs, the Yoga L13 Gen 4 fits the bill quite nicely.

Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 (Intel) review – transformer with color-accurate display and near-silent cooling fan
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 (Intel) can impress business users with its near-silent fan under max CPU load and comfortable input devices. The machines feel snappy during any kind of usage but there are well-performing devices out there with the same processor (in our case, that’s the optional Core i7-1355U). The reason for that is the modest cooling that is tuned to favor comfort over performance – especially the frequencies under long loads are nothing special. On the other hand, the battery life is great, no matter the modest capacity of just 46Wh – more than 14 hours of Web browsing on a single charge is an outstanding result! The upgradability is poor which is something normal for most modern thin and light machines. The memory is soldered but at least you can order the device with 32GB of LPDDR5 memory that works in dual-channel mode.

70% Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 review: there are just too many better Yoga models out there
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 is a solid midrange convertible laptop that offers the classic ThinkPad experience with some modern twists. Its versatility, security features, and connectivity options make it an appealing choice for professionals. However, its underwhelming display, plastic base, and average battery life mean that it might not be the best option for everyone.

60% Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 review: A business laptop that shouldn’t earn your business
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 isn’t a bad business laptop, it's just a mediocre one. Every single one of its competitors is a better option at around the same price point. They all feature better performance, brighter displays, and longer battery life. If you want the best of the bunch, I recommend checking out the MacBook Pro 14 — it’s only $140 more than the L13 Yoga and provides so much more battery life, stronger performance, and a stunning display. If you (or your company) demand a ThinkPad, then peruse our best ThinkPads page for several superior options at different price points. Overall, I wouldn’t pick up the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 4 (unless you can find it for 50% off).

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.

72.57%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
