The new ThinkPad X13’s biggest draw is its AMD 4000 PRO processor

The new first-generation ThinkPad X13 looks a whole lot like the other ThinkPads, but it’s packing AMD Ryzen 4000 PRO processors for a big performance boost.

We are not looking for people who already get more than their share of ink. Some of these people have intentionally stayed out of the spotlight while others have concentrated on their jobs rather than endless self-promotion. You know who we mean.

Remember we now consider posthumous nominations and now-retired people.

We are asking you to scour the landscape
