Known for its light weight and portability, Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 also happens to be a halo product with a price to match. Demand for ultra-portable notebooks is high these days, so Lenovo has developed its ThinkPad X13, something that combines portability of a laptop that is up to 16.9 mm thick and 1.3 kilogram heavy (2.85 pounds),  along with the performance of Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors, for a price that starts at $849.

Lenovo itself calls its new ThinkPad X13 - which also happens to exist in a hybrid version called ThinkPad X13 Yoga - a ‘premium mobile workhorse’. Housed in a black carbon fiber or carbon fiber with magnesium/aluminum chassis, the ThinkPad X13 can be equipped with a Full-HD (for a long battery life) or an Ultra-HD OLED touch-enabled display panel. Customers who need privacy can also opt for Lenovo’s Privacy Guard screen with 500 nits brightness.

As noted above, Lenovo’s ThinkPad X13 notebooks are based on Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors with up to six cores and UHD Graphics. Depending on configuration, the laptops may be equipped with 4 GB – 32 GB of DDR4 RAM as well as an up to 2 TB SSD.

As far as connectivity is concerned, the new ThinkPad X13 has Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Type-A, microSD, and HDMI. Premium versions will also come equipped with a 4G/LTE CAT16/CAT9 modem.

With its aggressive pricing strategy, Lenovo plans to charge $849 for an entry-level ThinkPad X13 and $1099 for an entry-level convertible ThinkPad X13 Yoga.

    These things are such fads! 16:9 is still more portable and some people prefer them. I understand they are increasingly less popular, and your point about convertibles isn't a bad one, but it's hardly a dealbreaker for most people.

    I've been computing long enough that this has gone full circle on me and I still miss the old squidgy 11" mba, honestly.

    Is HD TN display some kind of a sick joke?

    So it has smaller screen AND heavier than X1 / X1 yoga?

    It's also MUCH cheaper (it costs half as much). The X1 is their "premium" model.
    It also likely has better thermal performance, and more replaceable components.

    Let's imagine you didn't know the X13 was replacing the X390 (since that isn't written anywhere in the article).

    Then reread the opening paragraphs of the article.

    I think even the author didn't know. Sad, at best.

    And not to forget, it also comes with uSD und smartcard reader as well as a RJ45 port.

    It's too bad the yoga version doesn't support 32gb of RaM. Is it soldered or can it be upgraded? My L380 yoga that I bought 2 years ago has 32gb of RAM and won't be getting another computer with less.

    yes, the ram is soldered but still dual channel

    Is the lid on the x13 yoga carbon fiber?
