Like other ThinkPads, the X13 Yoga is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure their robustness. Enhanced ThinkShield features like ThinkShutter and discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) offers improved security. At just over 15mm thin, the 2020 X13 Yoga is thinner and lighter than its predecessors while boasting long-lasting all-day battery performances.

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad X13 is the smallest ThinkPad you can buy, and that's about all it has going for it. If you're looking for a ThinkPad that won't weigh you down or take up much space in your backpack, then it's your best option. The HP Spectre x360 13 is a solid choice if you're sold on a 2-in-1. It's better-looking, just as solidly built if not more so.

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Yoga's IPS panel displays image content without it becoming distorted or showing the wrong colors. Intel UHD Graphics 620 integrated graphics unit is only suitable for old games or titles with a low demand on graphics performance. Lenovo built a 512 GB SSD from Samsung into our test model of the ThinkPadX13 Yoga.

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad X13 Yoga is Lenovo's premier 13-inch convertible for business. It's attractive as a sleeker, more feature-rich option than the ThinkPad L13 Yoga. A couple of downsides—namely that it gets hot under intense use and a standard warranty of only a year—don't prevent it from being a good option.

  • Sleek, all-metal design
  • First-rate input devices
  • Slim bezels
  • Good battery life
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
