Deal | Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 with AMD Ryzen 5 Pro and 16GB RAM gets gigantic discount
Some budget-conscious Lenovo fans might already be aware of the steep discounts that the Chinese PC maker is offering at its official online store from time to time. Older model variants of high-end business laptops like the ThinkPad X13 often even receive sky-high discounts of more than 70 percent, as is now the case with the AMD-equipped Gen 2 model of the sleek 13-inch machine.
To be more specific, the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 configuration with an AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U hexa-core processor and 16GB of soldered LPDDR4 memory can now be ordered for just US$549 after a massive discount of US$1,590 or 74 percent in comparison to Lenovo's unrealistic MSRP. This version of the ThinkPad X13 also comes with a 512GB SSD and 300-nits display with a practical 16:10 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, the optional LTE modem is not included. Deal hunters will have to use the coupon code "THINKBTSDEALS2" in the shopping cart in order to take advantage of this sale.
Please refer to our comprehensive review for more details on the AMD-powered configuration of the Lenovo ThinkPad X13. For instance, we praised the high-quality chassis and color accuracy of the matte IPS display. Additionally, the business laptop has a long battery life and good connectivity options, although it is missing Thunderbolt 4 and an SD card reader. We further criticized the soldered RAM and that the keyboard has taken a few steps back over the years. Nonetheless, this deal offers a well-equipped notebook for a fraction of its original price, which results in an impressive price-performance ratio that might be perfect for frugal office users who are in the market for an affordable 13-inch machine.
