The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 is a part of Lenovo's new line of ultra-portable laptops powered by Intel's Tiger Lake and AMD Ryzen 4000U processors. It is Intel Evo (formerly known as Project Athena) certified and will retail at US$829 for the Intel variant and US$729 for the AMD version. The notebook will be available for purchase in October 2020 on all major e-commerce platforms.

One of the key distinguishing factors of the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 is its Dolby Vision certified 13.6-inch WQXGA (2560x1600) IPS panel. It has a peak brightness of 300 nits and covers 100% of the sRGB spectrum. There is also an option to make the display touch-enabled. An Intel Iris Xe iGPU powers it, so its gaming prowess is somewhat limited. At 1.26kg (2.77lb), the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 is quite portable. Its anodized aluminum body ensures structural integrity.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 can be configured with up to an Intel Core-i7 CPU. Memory and storage max out at 16GB (LPDDR5x, 4200MHz) and 1TB (NVMe SSD), respectively. The notebook's 61Wh battery supports fast charging at up to 65W. Connectivity options on the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 include one Thunderbolt 4.0, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, one HDMI 2.0b port, and a combo audio jack. It also supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
