The Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Makes a Solid Choice for Office or Schoolwork

The Lenovo ThinkPad 13 joins the ranks of the budget laptop sector, and like many similar devices, it does receive little glory for those looking for more powerful machines. However, it does sell itself as a solid choice for those who just want to get work done even on-the-go. This is a great choice for those who need to constantly travel, and might find it hard to complete their tasks required by their school or office.

Looking at its price point, the ThinkPad 13 might not go above in terms of performance levels when comparing it to its competitors due to its entry-level specs. Perhaps its main selling point is its overall design, especially when you take into account its excellent keyboard. Its feature set are better than what you might normally expect, but it does give you something that it is above average performance, albeit only slightly.

For those interested in purchasing this budget-friendly laptop, it is available in two color variations – black or silver. It is not as super thin and light as what you might expect it to be, but it does have a 0.8-inch thickness and weighs 3.2-pounds. It is not hardly a burden when carrying it around school or when you’re travelling for work, but it is a bit heavier than some wallet-friendly models out there.

At its top, it is covered metal, but everything else is encased with a durable plastic. Lenovo says that the machine is built to pass 12 military specification tests which include humidity, vibration and shock, and high and low temperatures. This is the type of durability that you don’t normally find in a laptop with this price point.

And finally, the largest selling point of the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 is its keyboard, and it is one of the best you’ll find out there for a budget-friendly business laptop, or probably even any budget laptop to-date. Using it is very good, but perhaps the only problem about it is that it’s not backlit, but you can’t be picky with this price tag.
