Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X13-20T20033GE
The Lenovo ThinkPad X390 is followed by ... the ThinkPad X13. Lenovo has changed the name of its small office laptops using a new naming scheme, but the new laptop remains true to the strengths of its predecessors. We show what buyers of the 13-inch laptop can expect in our review.

So, what is wrong with this device? Well, frankly – anything. The execution is great, the materials of use are extremely premium and the performance is …there. Okay, there is still the issue with the soldered memory, which drives us crazy. This is a productivity machine. And it is not cheap. This means you have to deal with it for at least a couple of years. And to do so, it would be extremely helpful if you were able to upgrade it. Instead, Lenovo is providing you with a handful of options, which you can only choose when buying the device. Indeed, you can pick the 32GB option right off the bat and it will do you well for quite a while. Additionally, the 16GB variant is not a bad choice either. However, in our opinion, you should stay away from the 8GB unit – you know better than anyone that most productivity apps are feasting on your machine’s precious RAM.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.

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.
88%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
