Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook has a target demographic, and for that audience, it has its strengths. It isn't the best performing Chromebook we've used, nor is it the longest-lasting on a single charge of the battery. Lenovo includes a docked hybrid “active capacitive” pen that doesn't need an active layer.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Good performance
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre performance

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook is a lovely lightweight laptop that's surprisingly tough thanks to its MIL-STD testing. It has a good performance with near-instant boot times, several security features and nearly all-day battery life. However, the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is cheaper with better performance, longer battery life and a higher resolution screen.

Pros[**]

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook is a terrific choice for businesses. The backlit keyboard has a snappy typing feel and the usual Chromebook layout. The 720p webcam and 2,592-by-1,944-pixel keyboard cam capture fairly sharp, colorful images. Side-mounted speakers produce tinny, muffled sound.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Excellent keyboard and trackpad
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
There is an optional 5MP world-facing camera located just above the keyboard. The keyboard is the standard tenkey-less design and the keys are well spaced and responsive. There are a good number of ports available, including a pair of USB Type-C ports and an HDMI port. The optional Lenovo USI Pen is your fairly typical garaged stylus for 2-in-1 laptops.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Solid performance
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • No fingerprint scanner

Reviewers from theverge have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad C13 Yoga is the closest thing to a MacBook that I've seen yet in the Chromebook space. It has a strong processor, an excellent keyboard, and a solid screen. It's a bit expensive for what it offers, as is often the case with laptops targeting business users. There are more affordable Chromebooks with better battery life.

Pros[**]
  • Premium build quality
  • Solid performance
  • Solid keyboard
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • 16:9 screen is a big miss
  • No fingerprint reader
  • No 4K screen option

wired[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from wired have found the following[***]:
The C13 Yoga is Lenovo's first ThinkPad Chromebook in some time. It's one of the first Chromebooks using AMD's latest 3000C-series processors. As a 2-in-1, it functions quite well, and recent updates to Chrome OS have made it even more useful as a tablet.

Pros[**]
  • Solid performance
  • Good battery life
  • Built-in stylus
  • Plenty of ports
Cons[**]
  • Battery life could be better
