Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 G1-21D20016GE

88.8% Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 G1 OLED Review - Business-Laptop with an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 6860Z | Notebookcheck
Lenovo’s new AMD ThinkPad Z13 comes with an exclusive AMD processor and the high-end version also gets an OLED screen and a leatherette lid that flaunts bronze-hued trim. It looks stylish, but is it still a 'business laptop'?
Taking the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 for a Test Ride [Review]
Source: Tech Acute English
If you’re in the market for a new laptop that is both powerful and sustainable, Lenovo’s ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 are great options. With a sleek design, fast performance, and up to 32GB of RAM, these laptops can handle anything you throw at them. Plus, they’re made with recycled materials, so you can feel good about your purchase. The ThinkPad has been around for 30 years now, and it’s clear that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. If you need a reliable machine that will last you for years to come, look no further than the ThinkPad Z13 or Z16. I enjoyed testing these units out and I’m sure that they’ll do well, no matter what challenge you have for them. Depending on the exact build, you can get the Z16 and the Z13 starting at around $1.500.

The updated design of the ThinkPad gives it a sleeker and less conventional take on enterprise notebooks. The price for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 starts at PHP 90,995.

Overall, the Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 is a decent device that can get you through your business tasks and definitely won’t let you down. Nothing to really complain about with the ThinkPad Z13.

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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
