Bottom Line

The Thinkpad 13 is a rugged and light business laptop from Lenovo, but the base model is not too impressive for its price and users should look at customizing their order to improve the Thinkpads features.

The Lenovo Thinkpad 13 is a bestselling 13.3-inch ultrabook that has been praised for its business ready security, its portable design and for its snappy Skylake Intel Core i3 processor. But the base model features an unimpressive TN display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 and a small 128GB solid state drive. It also comes standard with 4GB of RAM, which will very quickly be used up by Windows 10 and web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. But Lenovo does allow you to customize your Thinkpad 13 to improve its performance. We recommend the Full-HD IPS display and 8GB of RAM.

    The Lenovo ThinkPad 13 is an inexpensive rugged laptop with all-day battery life; it's a fine choice whether you're buying it for a college student or a small business.
