As for the name ThinkpadThe 13-inch screen size figure is often reminiscent of the flagship X1 Carbon flagship line, which has always been very expensive. For many people who appreciate portability, the 13-inch figure is still considered the golden ratio. And Lenovo’s launch of Thinkpad X390 before and now Thinkpad X13 is coming to a more accessible option for many users and businesses in Vietnam.
Owning a 13-inch screen with a weight of approximately 1.3 kg, Thinkpad X13 is aimed at users who are constantly on the go. Still wearing a distinctive black tone, you can immediately see the Thinkpad, but that’s why this laptop is quite easy to get dirty, fingerprints printed on the lid
The inventory in the product box includes a 65W charger via USB-C and a switch to RJ45 port
The Thinkpad logo section with a red circle, integrated with LED indicators has long been a very distinctive feature when it comes to the famous Lenovo product line.
The “black whole tree” appearance and glowing red dot logo create a “strange beauty” for Thinkpad X13 in particular and Thinkpad laptops in general when people around you look at it.
The right edge includes a heatsink slot, a USB-A port and a Kensington lock
The left side has relatively many ports compared to the small lightweight body of the machine including 2 USB-C thunderbolt 3 ports, 1 USB-A, 1 HDMI and 3.5mm audio port
Open the screen, with Thinkpad X13 we will not see the style of maximum thin bezels “sexy” as the X1 Carbon gen 8 models, instead, the traditional interior is more similar to the Thinkpad T series. Specifically, the upper and lower bezels are still quite thick, the sides are moderately thin
Compensating on the somewhat lumpy look is the famous long-standing durability of Thinkpad with magnesium alloy shell, spill-resistant keyboard.
Besides the figure, the interior of the keyboard, touchpad and trackpoint “legendary red dot” also appear fully on the Thinkpad X13.
The touchpad uses the precision driver of Windows 10 for a good navigation experience, although this trackpad area is not too large. The experience of typing and using Trackpoint for many people is an addictive thing in the “laptop” Thinkpad.
The deep key travel, good responsiveness and the smooth yet confident press is what really made me fall in love with the Thinkpad X13 during a few days of product experience. Although using Dell XPS 15 having a keyboard is not that bad, but clearly what can be with the representative from Lenovo enough to make me consider choosing “one child” Thinkpad when it comes to laptop.
In terms of security equipment, the Thinkpad X13 version I experience has a built-in fingerprint sensor for use with Windows Hello feature of Windows 10.
Webcam with built-in IR sensor is an option on the Thinkpad but the model I used here is not. To increase privacy, the device has a part to mask the webcam when needed
About the screen of the version in the article has Full HD resolution, matte finish helps better anti-glare. The hinge part allows opening the machine a maximum angle of 180 degrees
After a few days of use, I feel the screen brightness of the device is quite a combination of matte finish, so using a strong light source is not difficult. The other plus is that the color gamut of Thinkpad X13 is quite good, 100% sRGB range when I compare with other display devices.
In terms of configuration, the model in the post is equipped with Intel Core i5 10210U CPU, UHD GPU, 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD, with a genuine price of about 33 million VND. Because it is a thin and light device, it cannot upgrade RAM, you should consider the amount of capacity for long-term use right at the time of purchase.
Geekbench single-core score and multi-core CPU Core i5 10th integrated in the machine
PCMark 10 score shows the overall level of hardware power of the machine is similar to many other laptops with the same configuration level
In general, Thinkpad X13 is suitable for office work, entertainment such as watching movies, playing light games. The suitable 48Wh battery is not too large compared to other laptops of the same size (Dell XPS 13 has a 52Wh battery, HP Specter 13 has a 60Wh battery) but it also provides enough power for you to use continuously. from 5 – 7 am for tasks related to web browsing, Office

Considering the Thinkpad X13 model alone, which is priced at 30 million dong, you will have other options quite heavy.
LG Gram 13/14 although it’s not as old as Thinkpad’s and its looks are not better, but LG products have proven incredible durability, long-lasting battery life and very light (only nearly 1kg).
Form Asus ExpertBook B9 Also worth considering that I have had the opportunity to evaluate. The advantage of a more fashionable design is a great one for users who need a laptop to customize the form
Macbook Air Genuine distribution in Vietnam 2020 is also in the price range of more than 30 million VND. MacOS, thin and light design and long battery life are popular with many users. Performance weakness and limited port (only 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port) should be considered
– Need a laptop that is harmonious between thin, light and durable elements and has enough connection ports for office tasks
– Enhance typing experience on laptop keyboard
The machine is not suitable for:
– People need a laptop with high fashion, sexy design
– Those who need strong performance to do heavy tasks
