Content creation and collaboration are the core features of the recently announced seventh-generation Lenovo Yoga Slim laptops.
The new range is headlined by the flagship Yoga Slim 9i, a 14-inch carbon neutral certified laptop made for productivity and strong portable performance. Under its Oatmeal-coloured hood, the Windows 11 Yoga Slim 9i uses 12th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32GB RAM and a terabyte of SSD storage. Depending on your preference, its 16:10 display comes in as high resolution as a 4K OLED PureSight touchscreen variant, which is also Vesa Certified with an HDR 500 rating.
Next in the new Lenovo gear are the Yoga Slim 7i Pro X and Yoga Slim 7 Pro X, two 14.5-inch laptops built for content creation such as photo and video editing. Off the back of a 3072 x 1920 display with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, these laptops can be fitted with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPUs, ideal for visual-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 favour 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 option of being touch-enabled. For colour options, it comes in Moon White, Cloud Grey, and Storm Grey.
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 range, available in Storm Grey, featuring displays of up to 2880 x 1800 at 120Hz. Like the Pro X laptops, these devices offer a choice between Intel 12th Gen and AMD Ryzen 6000 CPUs. The Intel-using Yoga Slim 7i Pro also can be upgraded with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPU.
This range refresh also extends to the Yoga 7 2-in-1 hybrid laptop, which can be fully folded over for use in tablet configuration with a stylus. With the option of up to a 2880 x 1800 touchscreen display, this one solely runs the AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors.
Also revealed alongside the latest Yoga laptops was the Yoga AIO 7, an all-in-one desktop computer and display device with a 27-inch 4K IPS screen. It runs on the AMD Ryzen 6000 set, with the option to upgrade to an AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPU. Lenovo bills the Yoga AIO 7 as a full home entertainment solution, with inbuilt dual JBL 5W speakers, and the ability to wirelessly cast smartphone content or plug your laptop in via USB-C and control everything in the one place.
Full local availability and pricing details are yet to be confirmed for the new Yoga range, although the Yoga AIO 7 is expected to release in September this year at $2,699. More information on the Lenovo laptops will no doubt come 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 to graphic designers, content creators, and general business use for the hybrid work era.
