Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 5 features a 14-inch 4K display, though you can also opt for a 1080p model, which will save you a few hundred bucks. The bundled-in stylus, the ThinkPad Pen Pro, is a great addition, but it can't be pulled out when the laptop is flat on the table. In our lightest test, the X1 yoga lasted 7 hours and 49 minutes while looping a local 1080p video file. Both the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and HP Spectre x360 13 are better 2-1 laptops for the average person.
