Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 AMD, Ryzen 5 Pro 4650U

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X13 (AMD)
Source: PC Mag English
You should shun its base models that lack full HD screen resolution, but Lenovo's Ryzen Pro-based ThinkPad X13 is an otherwise well-built, perky alternative to the company's ultra-deluxe X1 Carbon.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad X13 (AMD Ryzen) review: Fast performance on last year's design
Source: Neowin English
My biggest complaint about the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 1 is that the design feels a bit dated for a PC that I do consider premium, even if this configuration comes in at under a thousand dollars. I have no doubt that we'll see slimmer bezels on next year's model, which will be called Gen 2 under the new naming model, as Lenovo does tend to redesign all of these things at once. Honestly, the whole array of ThinkPads from this generation is mostly a spec bump, but that that's a bad thing.

The ThinkPad X13 strips away all of the X1 Carbon's seductive qualities and leaves the practical bits. If the subpar battery life is a deal-breaker, we recommend splurging on the Asus ExpertBook B9450 or Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (8th Gen). Otherwise, the X13 is a great option for small businesses that need fast performance in a portable package without breaking the budget.

ThinkPad X13 Gen 1 (AMD) Review: Ryzen to the rescue for business
Source: On MSFT English
If you’re considering the X13, you should pick it up now. If you’re looking for an AMD laptop for a business that can overpower an Intel one, then this is the one for you. The build and design might be the same, but the AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650U inside the laptop makes a huge difference and come closer in performance to a Core i7 10th Gen Intel CPU. The integrated graphics, meanwhile, are great for light gaming, and in combination, make the X13 a great multitasking machine.

Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Review: A Fantastic Ryzen-Powered Laptop
Source: Hot Hardware English
We really dig the Lenovo ThinkPad X13. Very often a notebook can do so much right, but there's a fatal flaw somewhere. Sometimes the cooling isn't up to snuff, or the design language is a little awkward. The ThinkPad X13 does away with all of that, and all we're really left with to complain about is a minor issue with ventilation placement while gaming. Snappy performance, aggressive pricing, excellent battery life, great portability, and solid expansions options add up to a laptop we could see using for years to come. Everyone who needs a great ultraportable should add the ThinkPad X13 to their short list. It is an excellent machine.

13.30":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.
