The ThinkPad X13 comes in either conventional clamshell or 2-in-1 convertible (X13 Yoga) assortments.
We loved the two renditions of the original X13, yet we noticed that it was basically a rebadged form of 2019's ThinkPad X390, so it wasn't quite as new as its moniker would recommend.
The X13 Gen 2, outfitted with Intel's most recent eleventh Generation "Tiger Lake" processor and the recently popular 16:10 rather than 16:9 screen perspective proportion, is more current.
The X13 Gen 2 clamshell seen here has a 13.3-inch, 1,920-by-1,200-pixel show and a quad-center Core i5-1135G7 CPU, as well as 8GB of memory and a 256GB strong state drive.
The most affordable model at present available to be purchased expands the capacity and memory adds up to 16GB and 512GB, separately, while keeping a similar Core i5 processor.
More slender top and base bezels highlight the new 16:10 screen perspective proportion, which is a piece taller to allow you to see somewhat to a greater extent a page or report with less looking over.
The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 is likewise a piece thick, estimating 0.7 by 12 by 8.6 inches (HWD). Indeed, even the more reasonable ThinkBook 13s, similar to the Carbon, is just 0.59 inch thick.
