Lenovo has been offering the ThinkPad X13 in both Intel and AMD options. In our reviews of both the Intel and AMD models of the last gen ThinkPad X13, we observed that the AMD version offered excellent performance but at the cost of battery life. This year, Lenovo is refreshing the ThinkPad X13 with the latest from Intel and AMD.

The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 can be configured with a range of Intel 11th gen Core vPro Tiger Lake and AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile processors. The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 now comes with a 16:10 display, and Lenovo offers several 13.3-inch options in WUXGA and WQXGA resolutions.

The Intel variant is Evo-certified and comes with Wi-Fi 6e connectivity. Both Intel and AMD versions also offer optional 5G sub-6 GHz or 2x2 MIMO CAT 12 4G cellular support. Being an Evo-certified platform, the Intel version of the ThinkPad X13 also features 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports.

Lenovo is also introducing some changes on the security front. Previously, both the ThinkPad X13 variants had the fingerprint sensor beside the touchpad. That changes this year with Lenovo opting for a Match-on-Chip fingerprint reader that is integrated into the power button. Speaking of touchpads, the ThinkPad X13 Gen 2's touchpad is now 115 mm wide.

Buyers can also configure the ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 with Lenovo's ThinkShield security suite that includes a camera shutter, human presence detection, and an optional PrivacyGuard screen (with a 500-nit panel).

Lenovo will be offering the new ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 in both Black and Storm Grey options from May 2021. Pricing starts from US$1,299 for the Intel Tiger Lake variant and from US$1,139 for the AMD Ryzen 5000 version.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
