Lenovo is continuously positioning its laptops in the market very carefully. The company has now presented the ThinkPad L13 Yoga at $899.99. The new device is considered above from Yoga 2-in-1 convertibles but under the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. The L13 Yoga also replaces the ThinkPad L390 Yoga and best option under-$1,000 convertible. The L13 offers a 13.3-inch display limited to full HD. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga offers a 14-inch display with 4K resolution. Point to be noted that Lenovo site is also offering other configurations, ranging from a $677 Core i3 stripped-down model to a $1,403 Core i7-10510U Windows 10 Pro model with twice the memory and storage of my test unit.
The ThinkPad L13 Yoga has 2 USB Type-C ports on the left side of the laptop, one for the AC adapter along with a USB 3.1 Type-A port. It has a connector for a proprietary Ethernet dongle and an audio jack. You will also find another USB-A port, a microSD card slot, an HDMI port, the power button, and a security lock slot on the right side. The L13 combines a magnesium/aluminum alloy lid with a glass fiber reinforced plastic bottom. The display wobbles slightly when tapped in laptop mode but there’s almost no flex when you grasp the screen corners or press the keyboard deck.
There is a sliding shutter to disable the 720p webcam and slightly capture dim and soft-focus obviously clear and colorful shots. The bottom-mounted speakers pump out fairly loud and create a hollow sound. The 1,920-by-1,080-pixel IPS touch screen is attractively bright with good contrast and sharp details, and screen refresh rate at 60 Hz. The new ThinkPad L13 Yoga features an Intel Core i5-10210U 1.6 GHz processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of Storage, a touch-screen, and at least 12-hours battery life.
