The Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 3 laptop was released in 2022. It is available with an Intel or AMD Ryzen CPU. Some models include a fingerprint reader, a Smartcard reader, and a WWAN card.


The BIOS offers two modes of operation, GUI and Simple Text.

The GUI can be navigated to some degree via the keyboard. Use the arrow keys to move the selection and Space to activate.

Switching to Simple Text can be accomplished by:

  • Pressing Left to select the sidebar, then Down to select Config, then Space to activate it
  • Holding Down for two seconds to select the drop-down menu at the very bottom
  • Pressing Left to change it from Graphical to Simple Text
  • Pressing F10, then Enter to save and exit


Firmware can be updated using fwupd.


This laptop requires ALSA firmware in order for the sound card to work.
