Booting the system on for the first time you’ll be brought into Windows 11. One thing Lenovo has done recently with their laptops is change from a typical 16:9 aspect ratio on their screens to a 16:10 aspect ratio. So for this laptop we have a 13.3-inch 16:10 2.5K (2560 x 1600) IPS display. This display is very crisp and using it as a touchscreen it is very responsive.
The keyboard on this laptop is very comfortable to type on. I did notice that there is a bit of noticeable flex in the keyboard and when you use the trackpad. If you are working in the dark you do get a white backlight on the keys with two different brightness levels. You can manually turn the lighting on or off (FN + Spacebar) or you can set it to auto which will turn on the backlighting based on your environment.
When it comes to the built-in camera on the laptop it will shoot video at 720p (1280 x 720) at 30 FPS and take photos at 0.9 MP (1280 x 720). This was a bit of a let-down. It really would have been nice to have seen a 1080p webcam here. For those wondering about quality here is a picture I took with the camera.
I also made a recording using the Windows recording tool to give you an idea of the type of audio quality you would get if you planned on using the built-in microphone array on the laptop. We compare this with other laptops we’ve reviewed in the past.
