Content creation and collaboration are the main features of the recently announced seventh generation Lenovo Yoga Slim laptops.
The new lineup is led by the flagship Yoga Slim 9i, a certified carbon-neutral 14-inch laptop designed for productivity and strong portable performance. Under its Oatmeal-colored hood, the Windows 11 Yoga Slim 9i uses 12th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32GB of RAM and a terabyte of SSD storage. Depending on your preferences, its 16:10 screen is available in as high resolution as a 4K OLED PureSight touchscreen variant, which is also Vesa-certified with an HDR 500 rating.
Up next in new Lenovo gear are the Yoga Slim 7i Pro X and Yoga Slim 7 Pro X, two 14.5-inch laptops designed for content creation such as photo and video editing. At the back of a 3072 x 1920 display with an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, these laptops can be equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPUs, ideal for visually intensive tasks in addition to gaming. Between the duo, the main difference is your choice of CPU. The Yoga Slim 7i Pro X, available in Dark Teal or Cloud Grey, uses 12th Gen Intel Core processors, while the Yoga Slim 7 Pro X is the AMD Ryzen 6000 series version and is only available in Storm Grey.
More aimed at hybrid workers who prioritize portability, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is a 13-inch laptop that weighs less than a kilogram. Also powered by the 12th Gen Intel Core series of processors, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon features a 2560 x 1600 display with the ability to be touch-enabled. For color options, it is available in Moon White, Cloud Gray and Storm Gray.
As part of the seventh-generation Yoga series, Lenovo has refreshed its 14-inch and 16-inch laptops in the Yoga Slim 7 Pro and Yoga Slim 7i Pro line, available in Storm Grey, with screens up to 2880 x 1800 at 120Hz. Like the Pro X laptops, these devices offer a choice of 12th Gen Intel and AMD Ryzen 6000 processors. The Intel-powered Yoga Slim 7i Pro can also be upgraded with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPU.
This range update also extends to the Yoga 7 2-in-1 hybrid laptop, which can be fully folded for use in a tablet configuration with a stylus. With the option of an up to 2880 x 1800 touchscreen, this runs AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors only.
The Yoga AIO 7, an all-in-one desktop and display device with a 27-inch 4K IPS display, was also revealed alongside the latest Yoga laptops. It runs on the AMD Ryzen 6000 set, with the option to upgrade to an AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPU. Lenovo sees the Yoga AIO 7 as a complete home entertainment solution, with two built-in JBL 5W speakers and the ability to wirelessly stream content from a smartphone or plug in your laptop via USB-C and control it all at the same place.
Full local availability and pricing details are yet to be confirmed for the new Yoga range, although the Yoga AIO 7 is set to release in September this year at $2,699. More information on Lenovo laptops will no doubt be closer to release.
With plenty of options to choose from, Lenovo seems to have something for most types of laptop users. On paper, it looks like many of the new Yoga laptops are well suited for graphic designers, content creators, and general business use in the age of hybrid working.
