Sleek Style and Performance with Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i
This ultralight, stylish, premium laptop is a workhorse with performance in mind
In fashion and design, there’s an eternal dilemma on whether form follows function, or vice versa. Oftentimes, style and sophistication need to take a backseat to maximize power and efficiency. That need not be the case for the newest laptop in the Yoga series—the Yoga Slim 7i (14”) which combines the sexy slim design that we crave for in our portables, and match it with a powerhouse performance that you can use as your daily carry.
This stylish 14” laptop is engineered with advanced mobile performance, with up to 11th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 Processor, Windows 11 with 15 hours of battery life and plenty of AI and time-saving features.
Chic all over
A key consideration, of course, is how it looks—the Yoga Slim 7i retains the DNA of the Yoga devices: Premium products with refined craftsmanship that you wouldn’t mind parading around your next meeting in the office, or posting on social media about your work life.
The unit that we tried out had the fashion-savvy Slate Grey, but there are two other colorways that are a must for style connoisseurs alike—the savvy Orchid, and the neutral Dark Moss.
It’s quite slim and portable: it’s around 1.36kg, and the 14” version comes in the dimensions of 320.6 width, 208.18 depth, and 14.9mm thick. It’s just a little thicker than your mobile phone in a case, so you get that ultra-slim and ultra-portable feel. And with Windows 11, it brings you closer to what you love.
Amazing audio and visuals
When we tested the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i while watching Inventing Anna on Netflix, we were so happy to be able to fully maximize our premium plan when we watched the series on 4K+ HDR! The 14” FHD screen with 100%SRGB color accuracy and 300 nits of brightness provided enhanced graphics, stunning clarity, color, and detail.
We also made the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i our main device during a special VIP performance of Cecile Licad live from New York City. This is where the front facing Dolby Atmos speaker system makes its mark, because we felt every note of Licad’s trademark Chopin, amidst her Beethoven Moonlight Sonata, filling the space and creating three-dimensional audio.
Work or play? Why not both?
The difference between a work and play device is graphics. Some laptops simply cannot handle the heavy requirements of video editing and streaming or gaming. The Lenovo Slim Yoga 7i doesn’t pale in this account, with its 11th Generation Intel® Core processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. Here you have a smoother, more detailed, and vivid experience when manipulating videos.
There’s also an option to supercharge your device for photo and video editing and better gaming, all without sacrificing battery life.
A smart and reliable assistant, finally!
Another key feature is how its AI integrates with the Lenovo Smart Assist. It has facial recognition features and attention sensors. How that works is that the sensors can register when you’re away from the laptop, and it can instantly recognize your face when you come back. That way, your laptop is safe from the peering eyes of others, but you still get seamless (and lightning-fast) start times and transitions.
And if battery life is one of your big concerns, then we’re happy to share that we spent an entire day working with just the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i, that’s around 8 or so hours of combined editing, calls, meetings, and stand-by for around 12 hours. According to the specs, it has around 15 hours of battery life!
It also has an Intelligent Cooling mode, co-engineered with Intel®, that can extend the battery for long unplugged days, plus faster USB-charging. We love that feature! It’s good that it always has juice so you can be on-the-go at all times.
Then of course, it’s ever-reliable with Lenovo Premium Care, which brings you immediately to the front-of-the-queue and right to the experts whenever you have a question. That way you can have faster solutions and peace of mind whenever you use your device. Here, you’ll get to talk to real people via phone, chat, or email; rather than just reading FAQs and troubleshooting guides. There’s also the annual PC Health Check which lets the experts spot potential issues, while giving recommendations on how to quickly resolve them.
All in all, we found a new powerhouse laptop in the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i (14”) that does not compromise on style and delivers on all the aspects we need for a workhorse—design, visuals, audio, battery power, and more. With its sexy slim design, it looks gorgeous on your desk or the boardroom. You won’t ever need to choose between style and function again!
