Lenovo makes it's first ThinkPad with a Snapdragon processor



Lenovo is back with its all new ThinkPad X13s, with hell loads of features coming our way! Powered by the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 chip, it’s the first ever that Qualcomm’s latest laptop processor is gonna be featured in a commercial device. As further reported by Lenovo, the ThinkPad X13s can go on for 28 hours on just one full charge, and will come with a low-power 400-nit 13.3-inch display.


Weighing about 2.35 pounds (1.06 kilograms approximately), it’s actually pretty light for a laptop, though not as light as some other ThinkPads. Also, absence of a fan for cooling assists for its convenient size and weight, but the Snapdragon chips are here to make up for the cooling system.



The framework, being chiefly made up of recycled materials, is 90% recycled magnesium on its top and bottom covers. The laptop is compatible of 5G and WiFi 6E for rapid internet connection, 32GB RAM with upto 1TB of PCle storage, and two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports.


The ThinkPad X13s seems to be dependent on a couple of Qualcomm’s collaborative features, like top-class noise suppression on the laptop’s triple microphone setup and AI-based auto-framing for the 5MP webcam. Also, an automatic human presence dims or turns the laptop off when it detects that the user looks away in an attempt to keep away from sensitive data.


Also, looking into the sensational ThinkPad X1 Extreme, it has a 165Hz 16:10 display with Intel’s 12th Gen Core i9 H-series processors.


Coming to the pricing, the P-series models and Intel T-series models will all be here in April, with prices ranging from $1,399 to $1,419. The X13s (starting at $1,099) will follow in May, as will the AMD T14s ($1,399). June will then bring the X1 Extreme Gen 5 ($2,049) and the rest of the AMD T-series models ($1,299).
