The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 series has been launched with the latest Intel Tiger Lake and AMD Ryzen 5000 Series chipsets. The AMD variant is branded as the ‘ThinkPad X13 Gen 2’, while the Intel variant is called the ‘ThinkPad X13 Gen 2i’. Moreover, the company has also upgraded its other ThinkPad models including the ThinkPad P14s series, ThinkPad T14 series, ThinkPad L15, and ThinkPad L14.
Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 specifications and features
The first update comes in the laptop’s display. The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 features a relatively tall aspect ratio of 16:10, which is designed to suit productivity while at work. It’ll come with a 13.3-inch display with WUXGA and WQXGA resolutions.
As mentioned above, the laptops will be differentiated based on their chipsets. The ThinkPad X13 Gen 2i will be powered by the 11th-gen Intel Core i7 chipset with vPro support, while the ThinkPad X13 Gen 2 will be powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 chipset. While the AMD-powered variant only uses the USB Type-C interface after parting ways with the Thunderbolt 4 port, the Intel-powered variant will come with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A ports, an analog audio port, and a full-size HDMI port.
You’ll be getting up to 32GB of RAM and up to 2TB of SSD, giving you ample freedom to multitask, stream movies, and run graphics-heavy games without any issues. For connectivity, the laptops come with Wi-Fi 6E, a 5G modem, an optional 1080pp webcam, and more. Moreover, the laptop will come packed with two battery options – a 54.7Wh (watt-hour) battery that is capable of lasting up to 15.5 hours and a 41Wh battery that lasts for 12 hours.
