While the ThinkPad X13s Gen 1 still could use some software improvements, this is the best Windows on ARM has ever been. That might be damning this Lenovo with faint praise, but a decade on this finally gets us closer than ever to Real Windows Laptop performance in a tiny, power-sipping, modern package. It helps enormously that the design and product engineering are worthy of the ThinkPad name, making it a nice device to use and carry. For IT pros, if there’s a road warrior in your C-suite, this diminutive ThinkPad might be exactly what they’ve been dreaming of while snoozing in business class. Taken on its own, there isn’t another business machine that can offer what the X13s can–just make sure all your mission-critical software runs on it before issuing it to the team. For individuals, this machine makes a lot less sense. There are people out there who would love a long-lasting machine that’s thin and has 5G integrated, but the competition is pretty stiff. Right now, there are a ton of powerful Intel and AMD-based machines that are competitive, stylish, and with good enough battery life.

The ThinkPad X13s' performance has markedly improved and its a very viable platform overall. Unlike the Gen 2 version of the Snapdragon 8cx, the latest iteration is significantly faster than its predecessor. Web browsing is snappier, office productivity is faster, and graphics performance is greatly enhanced. The best part is that none of this comes at the expense of battery life, which is still as outstanding as it has been on all the Snapdragon 8cx versions. Qualcomm targeted battery life in a big way here, yet progress in technology allowed a pretty big bump in performance to go along with it. All of that comes wrapped in a positively featherweight, fanless design that's sleek and highly portable. Pricing is always critical, and thankfully the ThinkPad X13s is pretty reasonably priced. The base model has 8 GB of LPDDR4x and a 512 GB SSD with a 1920x1200 non-touch display and no 5G modem for $1,085 direct from Lenovo. Our review unit with 16 GB of LPDDR4x and the same 512 GB of storage, but with a 5G modem runs $1,301.

Overall, the ThinkPad X13s Gen 1 isn’t well-rounded enough to earn above a niche recommendation: that is, for those folks who need the 5G connectivity before all else, and who will keep their everyday work to typical, non-CPU-crunching office tasks covered by ARM-native apps. And without a sale (as mentioned, we've seen Lenovo offer 40% off on this model from time to time), it's just too pricey. Lenovo’s ThinkPad X13 Gen 3 is a little thicker and won’t match the battery life, but it suffers from none of the usability issues we saw with this laptop, and for something more stylish, the Dell XPS 13 is always a solid bet at this screen size.

All-day battery life? Check. Always-connected internet? Check. Excellent performance? Not so much. That pretty much sums up the ThinkPad X13s and Windows on ARM generally. Qualcomm and Microsoft have made some strides, for sure. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is the fastest yet, and Windows on ARM supports more apps and drivers than before. But it’s still nowhere close to Intel, AMD, or Apple when it comes to an overall experience. For the right person, though, the ThinkPad x13s is a nicely portable laptop with great battery life. Everyone else should wait to see what’s coming next.
