Lenovo ThinkPad X13s with Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is now available for pre-order.
Snapdragon-powered laptops and 2-in-1 tablet PCs aren’t new to the market. They may not be as popular as those equipped with Intel or AMD processors, but they have found their own place in the sun. In this regard, Lenovo is one of the companies that likes to release laptops using Snapdragon CPUs. For example, at the beginning of the year, the business revealed the world’s first ThinkPad X13s laptop powered by the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 CPU during the MWC 2022 expo.
In Japan, the ThinkPad X13s is now available for pre-order. The 8GB memory version of the gadget costs 167,299 yen ($1,239). This is not inexpensive, but we believe it is appropriately priced. Let’s become familiar with its essential qualities to persuade you that it is.
