89.7% Lenovo ThinkPad X13 G4 Intel Laptop Review: Compact 5G traveler with OLED | Notebookcheck
Lenovo upgrades its ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 with an OLED screen and 5G. With these premium features, it is much closer to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon - without giving the X13 any unique idenity.

Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 (Intel) review – impressively snappy super light business notebook with some shortcomings
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 4 (Intel) is a 13-incher that performs like a standard 15″ machine. This makes it a good business device for people who are constantly on the go and need a light and fast device. Speaking of which, the portability is great – the starting weight is just 1.09 kg and we got a profile of 15.95 mm. The build feels premium to the touch with its nice and soft finish but the flexible lid spoils the party. Still, the base is solid and it houses two big speakers that offer clear sound with no deviations. The comfortable spill-resistant keyboard is squeezed between the cutouts. The only downside here is the backlight that is optional for the machines in a Deep Black color (which is kind of weird). The board is complemented by a smooth touchpad and a Trackpoint. The cooling isn’t huge but it’s doing a good job in short and medium loads where the CPU maintains high P and E core frequencies.

96% Lenovo ThinkPad X13 (2023) review: It’s all business
Source: Techaeris English
As I previously stated, I am not the type of person who would use this laptop as intended, such as individuals who do data input in Excel regularly, host or be on video chats, or even use it for work. But it can handle anything that I tested it with. Business use aside, even college students and those in need of a powerful workhorse laptop will appreciate the ThinkPad X13.
