Two new X series ThinkPads are introduced today. The convertible Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Yoga will be available with an 4K UHD OLED screen, while the regular, non-convertible ThinkPad X13 introduces AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 to the ThinkPad X series.

Just like its bigger T series siblings, the smaller ThinkPad X series is also renewed in 2020 with the new naming scheme. The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 is the follow up of the ThinkPad X390 and the ThinkPad X395, while the ThinkPad X13 Yoga is the successor of the ThinkPad X390 Yoga.

Both are being updated to the Intel Comet Lake series with vPro, but only the ThinkPad X13 will also be available with AMD Ryzen Pro 4000. The convertible ThinkPad X13 Yoga meanwhile is an Intel exclusive.

Design wise, Lenovo seems to follow the motto "never change a running system", as both ThinkPad X13 series models share their design with the preceding models. That does not mean that they are pure CPU updates, however: Lenovo is introducing a 500 cd/m² FHD screen with an ePrivacy filter for both models. The more striking choice for consumers will probably be the 13,3 inch 4K UHD OLED panel, which will be exclusively available for the ThinkPad X13 Yoga.

Of the two, the ThinkPad X13 is clearly the more affordable option, as it starts at $849. The convertible ThinkPad X13 Yoga will cost at least $1,099. Both will be available in the second quarter of 2020.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
