At MWC 2022, Lenovo yesterday announced the all-new ThinkPad X13s powered by the new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 compute platform. This is one of the first enterprise-class laptop powered by Windows on ARM (Up to Windows 11 Pro) targeting businesses around the world.

Thanks to the Snapdragon processor, there is no active cooling solution in this laptop. The ThinkPad X13S weighs just 1.06kg (2.35 pounds) and delivers an incredible battery life of up to 28 hours (local video playback). Customers can configure this device with an optional Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF system for 5G mmWave and sub-6 connectivity.

Lenovo is offering the following three 13.3-inch display options:

  • WUXGA IPS 300nit
  • WUXGA IPS 300nit on-cell touch
  • WUXGA IPS 400nit, Low Power, Low Blue Light

Surprisingly, Lenovo also allows you to configure this laptop with up to 32GB LPDDR4x RAM and up to 1TB PCIe SSD.

ThinkPad X13s comes with a communications bar with a 5MP camera with AI-based auto framing plus IR camera option for Windows Hello and standard triple-array microphones to deliver intelligent noise suppression during calls. 

What they are saying:

“Protection from advanced attacks is a top business priority for today’s hybrid workforce. No matter where work takes place, Windows is designed to offer protection from the chip to the cloud. We are proud to have integrated the Microsoft Pluton security architecture with Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 compute platform on ThinkPad X13s. This integration will add even more security for identities, data and applications on Windows 11 PCs.” – David Weston, Director of Enterprise and IS Security, Microsoft.

Lenovo ThinkPad X13s will be available in May 2022, starting from €1399. The ThinkPad X13s will also be available on AT&T, and on Verizon later in 2022 in the US.
