Lenovo's ThinkPad 13 a solid budget laptop for business users and students
There's something pretty great about finding a budget laptop like the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 that let's you do your office or school work without causing a fortune.
At around $600, it's made mostly from plastic but the slim lightweight body Built to military specs for durability so it can handle some rough treatment better than your average budget notebook.
You can connect to external monitors or other peripherals with Lenovo's One-Link+ connector that attaches to a docking station as well as USB 3.0, a USB-C port, and HDMI out.
It has a decent matte finish, 1080p screen, and without a doubt it has one of the best keyboards I've used on a laptop this size, even if it does lack a backlight.
The touchpad is less than thrilling but gets the job done and there's a TrackPoint you can use instead.
The performance from the base model and its Intel Core i3 processor is good for average office and school stuff And Lenovo rates the battery life at up to ten hours but we got about six and a half.
So with mixed use you can expect somewhere in between those.
So yeah it's probably not a laptop you're going to be excited to get but one you'll be happy to own.
