Lenovo ThinkPad X13 G2 Review: The perfect mobile companion?

16:10 and 5G. Lenovo equips its compact business Ultrabook with a completely new chassis, updated processors, and a 16:10 screen. You can also get a fast 5G modem, but the manufacturer now uses a worse keyboard.
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 ...

Last year’s ThinkPad X13 did get a new designation, but it was still based on the old ThinkPad X390. The second generation of the ThinkPad X13 on the other hand is a major update with a new chassis, updated CPUs and, like the ThinkPad X1 models, new 16:10 aspect ratio screens.

The ThinkPad X13 G2 is once again available with Intel or AMD CPUs, but the Intel models are available first. Our test unit carries the designation 20WK0024GE and costs ~1900 Euros for regular customers or ~1800 Euros if you have access to Lenovo’s education program. The configuration includes a modern Tiger Lake i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB PCIe-SSD storage, a 16:10 panel with 1920 x 1200 pixels, and a 5G modem.

We have not reviewed all immediate business rivals from Dell, Fujitsu or HP yet, so we will also use some consumer models as comparison devices for this review.

Case - Lenovo with new materials

Lenovo uses a new chassis for the second generation. You will not notice a big difference from the outside, but you will immediately see the new 16:10 panel and the slim bezels on all sides when you open the lid, which appears much more modern. The color is another difference, because the black surfaces are now a bit brighter and there is a clearly visible contrast to the keyboard and the touchpad. You can also get the X13 G2 in silver (Storm Grey).

The materials also changed quite a bit and there are also significant differences to the X13 Yoga G2. Both the top and the bottom of the base unit used to be made of magnesium, but the new model only has a top made of magnesium and the surface is also a bit rougher. The latter has the advantage that you will not see fingerprints as quickly. The bottom panel is now made of aluminum. All in all, the stability of the base unit is very good, and we can only provoke some creaking noises when we try to twist the base unit.

The lid is not made of a PPS plastic/glass fiber composite anymore, but only PPS plastic. The lid is very sturdy, and we cannot provoke picture irritations. The two hinges once again allow a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees, but they could be a bit firmer for our taste. There is some bouncing, and the lid closes from an angle of around 20 degrees.

Compared to the old ThinkPad X13, the new model is a bit narrower, but the dimensions and the weight of around 1.3 kg are comparable. All the other comparison devices are also in the same ballpark, only the Dell XPS 13 is much more compact.

Connectivity - X13 now with Thunderbolt 4

The port situation on the X13 G2 is much better compared to the rivals. You do not only get two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, but also a full-size HDMI output and two regular USB-A ports. However, there is no SD-card reader.

Communication - 5G as an option

In addition to wired Gigabit-Ethernet (via adapter), Lenovo also equips the X13 G2 with the latest Wi-Fi 6E module from Intel (AX210). It manages very high transfer rates in our standardized Wi-Fi test with the router Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 and we did not notice any connectivity issues during our review period, neither with the Netgear router, nor the AVM Fritz!Box 7590 (Wi-Fi 5).

You can also get the X13 G2 with 4G or 5G modems. Our review unit is equipped with a 5G module from Qualcomm (Snapdragon X55), but it only works in combination with an eSIM. The slot for the Nano-SIM at the rear did not work with our SIM card from T-Mobile.

Webcam - ThinkPad now with 1080p

Lenovo now uses a 1080p camera with 2MP and the picture quality is a bit better than before. The camera obviously works for video conferences and the like, but it still does not take great pictures.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured with a couple of Philips screw and is easy to remove. Lenovo uses the same mainboard for the X13 G2 and the T14s G2, and the user cannot do a lot inside. Both the Wi-Fi module as well as the memory are soldered, so you can only access the WWAN module as well as the M.2-2280 SSD, and the fan can be cleaned as well.

Input Devices - Shallower keys and reduced travel

Keyboard

The width of the keyboard is once again a bit reduced (about 95% of the regular size), but you will get used to that quite quickly. However, similar to the current ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the keys now have a reduced key travel of 1.5 mm and the keys are also flatter. This clearly affects the typing experience. There are still advantages compared to consumer laptops, but other business keyboards from HP or Dell are pretty much on the same level and there is no big advantage of the ThinkPad X13 G2 anymore. Sure, we are complaining on a high level here, and the keyboard is also suited for longer texts, but the previous model had a big advantage in this category.

You still get a two-stage white background illumination, which works well and it makes working in dark environments much easier.

Touchpad & TrackPoint

Lenovo now uses a much wider touchpad (11.5 x 6.1 cm) for the new X13 G2 and it is easy to use. The smooth surface provides good gliding capabilities, but you will hear a pretty loud and cheap clicking noise when you click on the lower part of the touchpad.

The red TrackPoint and the additional buttons above the keyboard is once again available and is easy to use once you get used to it. The dedicated buttons also work well, but the clicking noise of the two buttons differs a bit.

Display - 13.3-inch now in 16:10

Lenovo equips the X13 G2 with matte 13.3-inch IPS screens with a 16:10 aspect ratio. You can select between four different options: 

  • WUXGA (1920 x 1200, 300 cd/m²)
  • WUXGA (1920 x 1200, Touch, 300 cd/m²)
  • WUXGA (1920 x 1200, Privacy Guard, 500 cd/m²)
  • WQXGA (2560 x 1600, LowPower, 400 cd/m²)

We already had the chance to review the WQXGA panel in the X13 Yoga G2; our review unit of the X13 G2 is equipped with the default WUXGA display and a brightness of 300 nits. We are slightly disappointed with the screens; we would have liked to see at least 400 nits and LowPower screens we know from Lenovo’s 14-inch lineup.

Our test unit manages an average brightness of 310 nits with a contrast ratio of more than 1300:1. The subjective picture impression is good and even bright surfaces do not look too grainy. We did not detect any PWM flickering and the viewing angle stability of the IPS screen is very good. Backlight bleeding is no major problem; there are only some brighter spots at the upper edge when you use the maximum brightness is combination with a dark background.

* ... smaller is better

The color accuracy is already very good out of the box and all colors are within the target deviation of 3 compared to the sRGB color reference. Our display analysis with the professional CalMAN software reveals a slight color cast in the grayscale towards pink. However, this is only noticeable in direct comparison with a calibrated screen.

We did calibrate the panel with the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer (the profile can be downloaded for free above) and we managed to improve both the grayscale as well as the colors. The small sRGB color space is covered completely, which means the panel is suited for picture/video editing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
17.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 8.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
30.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.8 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14793 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

It is no problem to use the X13 G2 outdoors thanks to the matte panel. You can even see the content in very bright environments as long as you avoid direct sunlight. We would still have appreciated a brighter panel for more viewing comfort.

Performance - Tiger Lake and soldered RAM

Processor - Core i7-1165G7

Our review unit uses the familiar Tiger Lake processor Core i7-1165G7 (UP3) with a maximum clock of 4.7 GHz for one core or up to 4.1 GHz when you stress all four cores (8 threads). More information about the processor is available here.

Lenovo sets the power limits very generously and we can really see the maximum clock of 4.1 GHz (equals ~50W) at the beginning of the benchmarks. After a little while, however, the value levels off at 4x 3.3 GHz and 30W. All in all good results, but the processor often scratches the 100 °C mark. We can see a small performance drop after around 15 minutes, but the performance quickly stabilizes again.

How does the new X13 G2 perform compared to other Tiger Lake laptops and its predecessor? The Core i7 mainly benefits from the high clock in single-core benchmarks and the new X13 G2 is often at the top of the ranking. The performance is also decent and ahead of all other Intel based rivals (the predecessor with Comet Lake is beaten by 30%), but the old X13 G1 AMD is still noticeably faster. We are already eager to see the performance of the X13 G2 with the new Ryzen 5000 CPUs. We expect even better CPU better if the power limits are comparable. Apple's M1 CPU in the MacBook Pro 13 is just as fast when you stress one core, but it is much faster in native multi-core benchmarks (>30%).

The power consumption is limited to 30W on battery power, so there is just a small performance deficit of ~15% compared to mains.

System Performance

The subjective performance impression of the ThinkPad X13 G2 is very good an all inputs are executed without noticeable delays. The results in the synthetic benchmarks are also good, even though most comparison devices are very close thanks to similar components and you will not notice a difference in practice. The memory (LPDDR4x-4266) of the X13 G2 is now soldered and cannot be expanded. Considering the high price, we would recommend at least 16 GB; you can get up to 32 GB.

Storage Devices - ThinkPad supports PCIe 4.0

The M.2-2280 SSD can be replaced.
The M.2-2280 SSD can be replaced.

The new ThinkPad X13 G2 does support the fast PCIe 4.0 standard, but our unit still uses a PCIe-3.0-x4 drive. You will hardly notice a difference in practice though because it is a very fast drive from SK Hynix.

The storage capacity is 512 GB and you can use around 411 GB after the initial set-up. We can see transfer rates up to 3.5 GB/s (read) and almost 2.9 GB/s (write). More SSD benchmarks are available here.

GPU Performance - Iris Xe Graphics G7

GPU-Z Iris Xe Graphics G7
GPU-Z Iris Xe Graphics G7

The Core i7-1165G7 is equipped with the integrated Xe Graphics G7. It is the faster version with 96 EUs and a maximum clock of 1300 MHz. The iGPU also benefits from the fast memory in a dual-channel configuration.

The X13 G2 is faster than the competitors in the synthetic benchmarks and the graphics performance is also stable under sustained workloads; it passes the 3DMark stress test (Fire Strike). Compared to the old X13 G1 with Intel iGPU, the performance was almost increased by the factor 3 and the modern Ryzen iGPUs are beaten as well. You can use the full GPU performance on battery power.
