🔬 [REVIEW] Lenovo ThinkBook 13x Gen 2 – It's purpose is clear
First, we want to highlight the Qi wireless charging map you get with the thinkbook. It doesnt replace the conventional 100 Watts type c charger. However, it has metal squares that make contact with the bottom of the laptop, while also providing an additional surface for charging another device. The laptop is essentially a slab of aluminum, its very well built with some minor flexing of the lid, but its all worth it. Considering the 12.9 millimeters profile and the weight of only 1.2 kilograms going further down to the base, we have an edge to edge keyboard. A fingerprint reader inside the power button and a glass surface touchpad, the keyboards got spill resistance and very clicky feedback which compensates for the lack of key travel, the touchpad isnt, the biggest, but nevertheless its as responsive and as accurate as ever. The lid fails to open with one hand, but nonetheless, it shows the gorilla glass cover display. Before we get to it. We have to check out the 720p webcam and all the sensors that it carries. First off we have an IR sensor for facial recognition, so you log in way quicker a proximity sensor that automatically locks the laptop whenever you move away from it, as well as an ambient light sensor, which can be used for auto brightness adjustment. Now for the display. What weve got here is a QHD plus IPS unit with a 16 to 10 aspect ratio at 13.3 inches its incredibly crisp, while also reaching 424 nits of peak brightness.
It fully covers the srgb color gamut, while our design and gaming profile tailors the accuracy to a Delta e value of 0.8, which is incredibly accurate. All things consider well link our display profiles in the description. The port selection consists of just two Thunderbolt 4 ports with one on the left and one on the right. Additionally, theres a 3.5 millimeters audio jack on the right, while Lenovo is smart enough to provide you with HDMI and USB type, A dongles in the Box. The speaker setup is on the bottom side, with two decent sized cutouts on the left and right they are Harman Kardon branded, so Lenovo wants you to think theyre of good quality and they actually are.

Thank you, youre awesome in terms of power, youve got two Alder Lakeview series: processors to pick from both the core i5 1235u and the core. I7 1255u come with 10 cores and 12 threads. While the i7 has 6 megabytes of extra cash, we tested the core i7 configuration in cinebench R23 and while it performs better than the elite dragonfly G3 from HP, it falters when put against the Microsoft Surface laptop 5, which uses the core i5 CPU Music.
The reason for this behavior is hidden in the cooling. The setup here looks pretty good with two fans and two heat pipes which Converge on top of the CPU, the maximum that the thinkbook will boost. Its core i7 is up to 30 watts and 2.9 gigahertz, which is lower than most competitors. However, the laptop is able to maintain the wattage for longer after 15 minutes. It settles at 23 Watts, which is still better than the 15 watts base TDP of the CPU. This Behavior also helps keep the noise down while the base doesnt heat up much with a hot spot of only 41.4 degrees Celsius. Lenovo could work on the battery life some more as the 56 Watt hours unit lasts for only 6 hours and 33 minutes of web browsing or 8 hours and 58 minutes of video playback, which is a lot less than what the elite dragonfly G3 offers similar to A lot of other small Office Machines, the thinkbook 13x generation 2, comes with soldered memory, with a total of 32 gigabytes of lpddr5 RAM.
