I have no problem recommending the ThinkPad X13 Yoga Gen1 as a purchase for just about anyone. The ThinkPad line is excellent, especially for business users, and this Yoga offers both flexibility and mobility for users on the run.

Lenovo's premier 13.3-inch convertible for business, the ThinkPad X13 Yoga impresses with slick design but is hamstrung by short battery life and high temperatures.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Yoga Gen 1 is a great business convertible. I always tend to sing the praises of ThinkPads, because they always nail down the important things, like the best keyboards around. There's a difference in the different tiers though. A couple of months ago, I reviewed the ThinkPad L13 Yoga. You don't have to use the X13 Yoga for long to see how much more premium it is.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-10310U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.7 and 4.4 GHz with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB. The CPU supports the professional management features under the vPro umbrella.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

78.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
