A Review of the Lenovo ThinkPad 13S For Business
If you are in the market for a business laptop with mobile computing capabilities, you should definitely take a close look at the new laptop from Lenovo ThinkBook 13s. The ThinkPad series of laptops from Lenovo is geared toward those on the go. This means you have plenty of options when it comes to how you can get your job done. In this review, we will take a closer look at the features of the ThinkPad 13s.
When you purchase a business laptop you want to make sure that it meets all of the requirements you need. In this case, you are buying a business laptop. The thing that sets this ThinkPad series apart is its mobility and versatility. The two hinges on the lid of the laptop to allow it to open easily like a book. Also, the two hinges on the laptop hold perfectly onto the keyboard, allowing it to open naturally like a book.
The Lenovo ThinkPad 13s features an integrated fingerprint reader. This allows you to log on without typing in a pin number, passwords, or pass codes. If you carry your ThinkPad in your pocket, or somewhere that you cannot see the monitor, this fingerprint reader will allow you to log in quickly and easily. It also adds another level of protection when you use your laptop in public areas like waiting rooms or airports.
On the downside, the battery life on the Lenovo ThinkPad 13s was not as long as it could have been. The battery life lasted eleven hours but then fell to six hours of screen time. The laptop does have high standards for what high quality it should be, however. With a five hour charge and six hours of usage, this laptop can go for up to ten hours between charges. This high standard is what made the laptop so popular in the first place.
The keyboard on the Lenovo ThinkPad 13s did feel quite small compared to other laptops I’ve handled. However, the keys are well placed and responsive. The track wheel is smooth and comfortable to use, even for non-gamers. For all of the heavy hitters out there, this laptop is sturdy and light. In terms of durability, the ThinkPad 13s did fare better than some other ultrasonic laptops.
When it comes to performance, the Lenovo ThinkPad 13s earned a respectable score in the standard tests of multimedia and web browsing. It managed to squeak by in the graphic department, though. Overall, this machine type scores pretty well in most of the review sites. Its combination of standard ports, a large touch screen, a solid-but not overly chunky keyboard, excellent battery life, and excellent audio output make the laptop an excellent choice for anyone looking for a solid business machine. It falls short, however, when compared to its competitors in the business category.
One of the highlights of the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s for business users is that it comes with a full version of windows operating system. While others may view this as overkill, it is a feature that will come in handy for business use. With the robust security measures included, business users won’t have to worry about viruses or malware infecting their machines. They will also find this machine quite reliable. In fact, this is one of the few manufacturers that offer a solid warranty.
In terms of the aesthetics, this machine type might not be as attractive as its competitors, but it does have some great perks. The first is that it uses an all metal body, rather than plastic, which many other manufacturers have chosen to go with. This means that it looks much more professional and is far less likely to be confused with an iPod Touch or similar device. Another neat touch is the ThinkBook’s full keyboard, including a complete trackball, a power button, and even a fingerprint reader for quick access. In addition, the ultra-thin aluminum casing makes this machine fit into most locker spaces at colleges or business schools.
