Lenovo is taking advantage of this month, however, to renew its range of Yoga laptops with seventh-generation machines. But the Chinese manufacturer does not stop there and presents an all-in-one model whose 27-inch IPS 4K screen can rotate in horizontal or vertical position depending on your needs.
No Intel processor in Yoga AIO 7, but an AMD Ryzen 5 6600H Mobile or Ryzen 7 6800H Mobile chip depending on the configuration. To enhance the screen, it is possible to add an AMD Radeon RX 6600M graphics card. The machine can hold 16 or 32 GB of RAM as well as 256 GB for 1 TB of PCIe SSD storage space. Also note the presence of a 5 megapixel webcam, which is distinguished by being detachable. On the other hand, Lenovo has not chosen the very latest wireless communication standards, and it will be necessary to settle for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
The Yoga AIO 7 all-in-one PC will be sold at the end of June from 1499 euros.
A top-of-the-range 14-inch model with OLED screen
After this interlude, let’s return to the new laptops. The most expensive machine in this new batch is the Yoga Slim 9i. This is due to the presence of a 14-inch 16:10 OLED touch screen, which depending on the configuration comes in 2.8K (2880 x 1800 pixels) or 4K (3840 x 2400 pixels) versions. However, the advertised brightness seems a bit limited (400 nits).
The 1.37 kg machine has an Intel Core i5-1240P or Core i7-1280P processor depending on the configuration, as well as 16 or 32 GB RAM and 512 GB or 1 TB NVMe Gen4 SSD storage. Music lovers will appreciate the presence of a Bowers & Wilkins system consisting of four speakers (2 x 2W and 2 x 3W).
The Yoga Slim 9i laptop will be sold at the end of June from 1899 euros.
Less than a kilo on the scales
Lenovo is also launching an ultra-lightweight 13-inch laptop (less than 1kg) thanks to a magnesium alloy chassis. The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon has a 13.3-inch IPS 2.5K (2560 x 1600 pixels) screen that may or may not be touch-enabled depending on the configuration.
The machine has an Intel Core i7-1260P or Core i5-1240P processor, 8 to 32 GB RAM and 256 GB to 1 TB PCIe SSD storage.
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon laptop is available in three colors and will be sold at the end of June from 1199 euros.
The choice between an Intel or AMD processor
Let’s continue this overview with models available in AMD or Intel versions. This is the case with the Yoga Slim 7 Pro X and 7i Pro X (the i indicates the version with an Intel chip). These 1.37 kg laptops have a 14.5-inch 3K IPS display (3072 x 1920 pixels) at 120 Hz, with touch capability.
