Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 G3, i5-1240P
Source: PC Mag
The ThinkPad X13 Gen 3 upholds the legendary ThinkPad X-series standards in all ways but one: battery life. It lacks all-day unplugged stamina and isn’t competitive in its class, at least with its standard 41WHr battery. However, even had it lasted longer off the plug, Lenovo’s own ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 would still be a rosier choice. It has superior features and battery life and can be nearly the same price dependent upon Lenovo’s ever-changing sales. That said, the X13 Gen 3 should be more competitive with its optional 54WHr battery. If you can find it with that for less than the X1 Carbon, and especially if you want an AMD processor (which the X1 Carbon doesn’t offer), the X13 Gen 3 becomes a much more attractive buy.
