Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 21D2CTO1WW
Why is there no ThinkPad X1 with AMD CPUs? That's because there's now a premium series exclusively for AMD with the ThinkPad Z series. The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 G1 presents many arguments in its favor in our review, and it's one of the best compact laptops so far in 2022.

In trying to make a ThinkPad that is a little less like a ThinkPad, Lenovo could have made a machine too idiosyncratic for those customers that want compact laptops from the likes of Apple and Dell. Or, not idiosyncratic enough for its dedicated ThinkPad users. Thankfully, Leonovo pulled it out of the bag by coming up with a notebook that's stylish, well made, and easy to use, and with just enough of the traditional ThinkPad features to take on the competition. What's more, that impressive trade-off between performance and efficiency from the Ryzen 5 Pro chipset is the cherry on the cake. One that makes this an excellent notebook for both business and pleasure, provided you have some really deep pockets.
