Lenovo ThinkPad X13s hands-on: The first ARM-powered ThinkPad


With always-on, always-connected performance, a fantastic sustainable design the ThinkPad X13s might have what it takes to take down Apple's M1 MacBooks.

Lenovo ThinkPad X13s Gen 1 Review


Extra-light for a 13-incher ; Superior battery life ; Bright 16:10 screen ; Option for 5G wireless ; Silent operation ; High-res webcam

Pricey, unless you catch it on a sale ; Not compatible with all apps ; Minimal ports, and no Thunderbolt 4 ; Chassis gets hot under load ; Shallow, ThinkPad-atypical keyboard

Lenovo’s ARM-based ultraportable ThinkPad X13s delivers excellent battery life and anywhere-5G connectivity, but practicality and price slay this Snapdragon model for most shoppers.

Lenovo ThinkPad X13s Gen 1 review: Flexing its ARM battery life


Over 15 hours of battery life may make you forgive its average performance

Outstanding battery life ; Elegant and durable design ; Good webcam performance ; Display quality is excellent ; Keyboard is top notch

Windows on ARM software incompatibilities ; Lack of OpenGL support

Outstanding battery life, with just enough small victories to overcome its addiction to being average in every other way.

Lightweight and easy to travel with ; Fast always-on 5G connection ; Emphasis on security by Lenovo

Processor slower than the competition ; Fingerprint scanner difficult to set up ; Limited number of USB ports
