Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 equips an 11th-gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 quad-core CPU with eight threads. Lenovo upped its game with a taller 13.3-inch 16:10 IPS display at a WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolution. It's a fast productivity workhorse that should keep up with all but demanding creative workflows.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
ThinkBook is Lenovo's laptop brand for small-business entrepreneurs. The ThinkBook 13s Gen 2 (starts at $870; $1,009 as tested) belies its budget status. It still fits below premium-priced ultraportables like the Dell XPS 13 in our hierarchy of top laptops.
