Reviews for the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 14ARP8

89.2% New CPU name, old CPU performance: Lenovo Slim 7 Pro Ryzen 7 7735HS laptop review | Notebookcheck
The Slim Pro 7 is a versatile multimedia solution with H-series CPUs and GeForce RTX graphics. The latest model is one of the first to ship with the Ryzen 7 7735HS, but performance is slower than the older Intel Core i7-12700H especially in single-threaded workloads.
85% Lenovo Slim Pro 7 Review: Portable Power for Content Creators
Source: CNet English
Geared toward content creators whose work has them on the go, the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 offers an uncommon combination of power and portability. It's built around a 14.5-inch, 90Hz display and powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 and entry-level Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 discrete graphics. Content creation laptops usually pair a dedicated GPU with a larger 16- or 17-inch display that provides a larger canvas on which to work at the expense of travel ease. With a 14.5-inch display and thin, compact chassis, the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 weighs only 3.5 pounds and makes a better travel companion than a full-size mobile content creation station. And while the display may be smaller than the usual, it's fine and fast with a 2.5K resolution that's finer than the usual full-HD resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate that's faster than the typical 60Hz panel.

Lenovo Slim Pro 7 14 (2023) Review
Source: USA Today English
If you’re looking for a laptop for general web browsing and productivity, there are plenty of lower-priced options like the Acer Aspire 5 that may meet your needs. That said, if you edit photos, videos, or even audio and think you need a little extra power, the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 14 is a better choice than models with lower-spec CPUs or integrated graphics. Speaking of graphics, while the RTX 3050 isn’t a powerhouse, it’s got more than enough juice for casual gaming. If you’re heading out on a road trip to shoot and edit some video but want to get in on a little Fortnite or even more heavy-duty games, the GPU will handle it. You may need to lower some settings, but the Slim Pro 7 14 will run most games you throw at it.

80% Lenovo Slim Pro 7 Gen 8 (2023) Review
Source: PC Mag English
We would have given the Slim Pro 7 even higher marks, but our verdict changed halfway through our testing, because the Slim Pro 7's initial $999.99 price at Best Buy turned out to be a sale with the true tag $200 higher—i.e., a near match for the HP Pavilion Plus 14, which is lighter and has a more dazzling, higher-resolution OLED display. At the lower price, the Lenovo is a winning combination of above-average CPU and GPU performance for users of more demanding content creation apps rather than just Microsoft 365, so it's well worth hoping for another sale.

80% Lenovo Slim Pro 7 review: A delightfully thin and light laptop
Source: PC World English
The Lenovo Slim Pro 7 is an attractive, portable laptop that’s ideal if you need a combination of CPU and GPU performance. It also nails the fundamentals with solid connectivity, an enjoyable keyboard, a large touchpad, and top-notch webcam. Display quality is a weakness, but it’s an acceptable compromise for the laptop’s extremely competitive $1,199 MSRP. The Slim Pro 7 is a versatile, affordable laptop and hard to beat for the price.

70% Lenovo Slim Pro 7 review: a fast and affordable thin and light laptop
Source: Digital Trends English
If you’re looking for a thin and light laptop for demanding productivity work, with some light creative tasks tossed into the mix, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 is a great choice. It provides excellent performance and the ability to play some games as long as you use the right settings, and it’s well-built and comfortable to use. You can spend more money on a 14-inch laptop, but there’s no reason to do so unless you’re looking for an OLED or mini-LED display. The Slim Pro 7 might not be the most exciting laptop in the world, but it should meet the needs of most people.

14.50":

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
