Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i 14ITL5
Lenovo's expansive lineup of 14-inch laptops just got even bigger with the introduction of the IdeaPad Slim 9i. This leather-clad Intel Evo laptop looks great and classy at first glance, but the shallow keyboard and clickpad bring the whole thing down.

I have found a lot to love in the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i, and I really enjoy using it. The battery life is excellent for what I do with it, the 14″ UHD display is gorgeous, and this laptop is powerful enough to do everything I need it to without lagging. Best of all, the Slim 9i is very portable and light, so I don’t think anything of putting it in my backpack and carrying it when I know I’ll need it. If you love the looks of the Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1, but you don’t need the tablet features and you are interested in something just a bit more portable, you will not be disappointed with the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
