Multitask to your heart’s content
AMD Ryzen™ PRO 6000 Series Mobile Processors deliver outstanding videoconferencing and epic battery-life. Combined with the responsiveness of up to Windows 11 Pro, the ThinkPad Z13 blazes through tasks lightning-fast. So don’t worry about checking email, streaming music, switching apps, and having a bazillion tabs open—it meets you where you are.
Inspiring collaboration with your world
Because webcams are so 2021, the Z13 is rolling out with a Communications Bar. Sure, it’s got a camera—and with FHD infrared technology, it’s great. But with adjustable settings, AI-based noise-cancelling mics with Dolby Voice®, and facial-recognition login capability, it’s so much more. The Communications Bar inspires a world of collaboration everywhere you are.
Redesigned keyboard—not just for typing
While our ThinkPad keyboard is timeless, we’ve taken it to a new level. It features a glass haptic TouchPad with integrated navigation buttons. The little red TrackPoint? Still there, and you can still use it like a mouse. But you can also double-tap to launch the Communications Quick Menu settings to optimize audio-visuals. There’s even a Dictation Toolbar for handy speech-to-text transcription.
AMD-Microsoft security partnership
All ThinkPad laptops include ThinkShield, a suite of security solutions engineered to safeguard your business. Our Z13 laptop also has ground-breaking chip-to-cloud technology with Microsoft Pluton, resulting from a partnership between AMD and Microsoft—working in conjunction with data encryption and biometrics. Plus, an electronic shutter controlled by the F9 key ensures the camera stays off.
Vibrant calls, videos, & more
Enjoy rich detail and color on a non-touch 13.3″ WQXGA OLED display (2880 x 1800) with Dolby Vision®, 100% DCI-P3, and color calibration when every pixel counts. Or go with the WUXGA panel (1920 x 1200), low power with 100% sRGB colors available—with or without touchscreen. All options include low blue-light display to help reduce eye strain.
Quality you can trust
We use the US Department of Defense’s MIL-STD 810H standards to create a balance of value and durability for our ThinkPad laptops. We test against 12 standards and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. These tests cover harsh variables like Arctic wilderness and desert dust storms, including temperature, pressure, humidity, vibration, and more.
- Posh, polished design
- Eco-conscious materials and packaging
- Great Ryzen-powered performance and graphics
- Impressive battery life
- Excellent keyboard with re-imagined TrackPoint
Designer Looks, Premium Materials
Breaking from staid ThinkPad tradition, the Z13 just oozes style. It’s obvious that Lenovo was looking to one-up the rest of the premium, thin-and-light ultraportable laptop crowd. At 0.55 by 11.59 by 7.86 inches (HWD), it’s similar in dimensions to the Dell XPS 13 Plus (0.6 by 11.63 by 7.84 inches) and the Apple MacBook Air (2022, M2) (0.44 by 11.97 by 8.46 inches), but the materials are a step above, accenting the all-metal aluminum construction with vegan leather. It’s also available in a more standard-looking bare-metal version with an Arctic Gray finish.
The laptop’s display is also quite nice, with a 13.3-inch IPS panel that uses a 16:10 aspect ratio and 1,920-by-1,200-pixel touchscreen. The slimness of the surrounding bezels is impressive, giving the laptop a 91.6% screen-to-body ratio, and that prominent display looks very good.
Colors are vivid and bright, the contrast provides a crispness to details, and the viewing angles are so wide that I couldn’t find a bad angle—the colors stayed clear and bright regardless of where I viewed the panel from.
It’s also, interestingly enough, not the best display Lenovo offers on the machine, with a different 2,880-by-1,800-pixel OLED touch screen available on the most expensive models.
Above the display is a protrusion that Lenovo calls the Communications Bar, a distinctive housing for a full HD webcam with electronic shutter and IR functionality for facial recognition. Alongside are dual microphones with Dolby Voice noise cancellation to eliminate unwanted ambient noise. While it serves a clear purpose when the Z13 is open, the Bar also provides a convenient lip that makes it easy to open and close the slim laptop.
Minimalist Port Selection
The only part of the Z13 that feels lacking rather than luxe is the port selection, which is decidedly minimalist. On the right you’ll find a single USB-C port and a headphone/mic jack.
