With the ultra-light Yoga Slim 7 Carbon, Lenovo has introduced an exciting notebook that relies on an OLED display, is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU and already ships with the new Windows 11 operating system.
14-inch notebook weighs just 1.1 kilograms
As part of its Tech World 2021 in-house exhibition, Lenovo has unveiled an exciting and compact 14-inch notebook. The new Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon complements the model of the same name from the spring, which, however, is equipped with a 13-inch display and an Intel Tiger Lake CPU.
The new version once again uses an OLED panel with a QHD+ resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels, a 16:10 aspect ratio and a maximum frame rate of 90 Hz. The DCI-P3 color space is supposed to be completely covered, but the maximum brightness of 400 nits is rather mediocre.
In return, Lenovo installs an AMD Ryzen CPU from the 5000 series (AMD Ryzen 7 5800U or Ryzen 5 5600U). Thunderbolt 4 is therefore not supported due to the AMD CPU, but there is room for three USB-C ports, two of them with USB 3.2 Gen.2, in the slim case. The dedicated GPU is an Nvidia Geforce MX450, which is supported by 8 GB or 16 GB DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB or 1 TB M.2 SSD depending on the model. For fast communication, the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon relies on WiFi 6E as well as WiFi 6.
However, the dimensions and weight are particularly exciting: The notebook only measures 313 x 215 14.9 mm and weighs just 1.1 kg – so it is perfectly equipped for mobile use. The battery has a power of 61 Whr, and Windows 11 and the new Microsoft Office 2021 are already preinstalled for the release. Amazon Alexa is also supported as a voice assistant.
Price and availability
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon should be available from November 2021. The price starts at an MSRP of 1,099.00 Euros.
