Where Work & Leisure Unite

The thin, light ThinkBook 13s laptop catches the eye with its metallic finish on an all-aluminum chassis, as well as its narrow bezel display. It's very responsive too, with Intel®processing, Modern Standby, and a solid-state drive. Log in or boot up in a flash thanks to the integrated fingerprint reader on the power button. This 13.3" device also boasts an FHD display with Dolby Vision™ and Harman speakers with Dolby Audio™.

get to know the ThinkBook 13s

Work smarter—not harder
The ThinkBook 13s is packed with features that make it faster and easier to focus on your business. Boot up and log in with a simple touch. Use hot keys to answer or hang up when making Skype calls. Listen to music while your system is in standby mode and resume use in less than 0.5 seconds. Even use Cortana with voice recognition to simply tell your device to wake up.
Dazzle or be dazzled
The display on the ThinkBook 13s is as functional as it is attractive—you’ll have a larger visible screen thanks to the thinner 5.5mm bezels. The FHD display includes dramatic Dolby Vision™ high-dynamic-range (HDR) technology, for increased brightness, expanded contrast, amazingly accurate colours, and more refined detail.
Because life doesn’t happen in a bubble
The ThinkBook 13s laptop passes multiple quality and reliability tests such as extreme temperatures and vibrations. The zinc-alloy hinge includes powdered-metal technology to increase quality as it’s coated with both indium and stannum to enhance resistance to corrosion and optimise WiFi reception.
We’ve got your back
Built-in security features protect your business-critical info. Default discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security features. ThinkShutter, a physical camera cover, blocks the lens to ensure that you’re only seen when you want to be. A fingerprint reader is integrated with the power button, so a simple touch logs you in and boots up the system immediately—turning it on just like a phone.
Keeps you unplugged longer
When you’re on the go, you can’t be worried about finding electrical outlets. That’s why the ThinkBook 13s delivers up to 11 hours of battery life* on a single charge. And if you’re running low, Rapid Charge provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So with a 60-minute layover, you can easily boost your battery up to nearly 9 hours. (*Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. Note that Rapid Charge requires use of the optional 65W power adapter and is supported on models with integrated graphics only.)
