While some niche fans wait to get their hands on the Qualcomm powered ThinkPad X13s, Lenovo is announcing prices and dates for its 3rd generation X13, X13 Yoga, and L-Series laptops.
AMD and Intel will be duking it for real estate in these new 3rd generation configurations that will host either an AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 Series chip or 12th Gen Intel vPro Core processors.
The ThinkPad X13, X13 Yoga, L13, L13 Yoga, L14 and L15 share similar construction and design philosophies as the company’s 2022 flagship X13s that include the use of Post-Consumer-Content recycled plastic materials, integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security, Dolby Voice, FHD camera, Wi-Fi 6E, 5G sub 6 and 4G LTE wireless connectivity options.
