The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 is what every business should expect from a ThinkPad. What it lacks in cutting-edge features like 4K resolution or an impossibly thin and light chassis, it makes up for in typing comfort, competent performance, and long battery life. This isn't a business laptop to impress C-suite executives, but it's a great laptop to run the rest of the business on. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a better choice for businesses with deeper pockets, while it's hard to beat the performance of the Apple M1 processor in the MacBook Pro. For every other organization whose IT department is looking for a compact workhorse, the X13 Gen 2 is a fine choice.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 has an edge over its competitors; it serves up impressive overall performance and its video-transcoding speed gave its rivals whiplash. However, I hesitate to recommend it because, as of this writing, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon with the same specs (Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU, 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM) is priced at $1,392 at Lenovo. This is only $200 more than our X13 Gen 2 review unit. You’d be better off shelling out a little more for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which garnered a five-star rating and an Editor’s Choice badge. Plus, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon comes with a fingerprint reader, great quad speakers, slim bezels, a consistently working touchpad and nearly 16 hours of battery life — the ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 could never.

The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 serves up zippy video transcoding, impressive overall performance and a productivity-boosting keyboard, but you’ll be better off shelling out a little more for the highly rated X1 Carbon.
