Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7 laptop: High-end business convertible in review

Business meets Alder Lake P with vPro. Business laptops with the new Intel Alder Lake processors are now slowly coming onto the market. The first candidate in our editorial department is Lenovo's flagship convertible for the business sector, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7. However, there are still difficulties with the implementation of the new Alder Lake P chip.

After Lenovo gave the ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 an extensive upgrade last year with a new case and 16:10 displays, the main focus of the new G7 generation is the switch to Intel's new Alder Lake P processors. These employ a new hybrid architecture and promise significant performance advantages, especially in the multi-core area. At the same time, according to the manufacturer, there is an improved cooling system with a fresh air supply via the keyboard.

We received one of the first new models from Lenovo with the model number 21CE002HGE. This one uses the new Core i7-1270P with full vPro support, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, a 512 GB PCIe 4.0 SSD as well as a matte Full HD touchscreen with a resolution of 1920x1200. At present, we are unable to give any exact information about the price and it remains uncertain whether the exact configuration in this review will even enter the market. But a similar configuration with the somewhat slower Core i7-1260P is now available in Lenovo's online shop at various prices, depending on the country of purchase (see "Price and Availability" at the end of the review). In terms of euros, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 with the slower Core i7-1260P has an official price of just under 3,100€, making it 700€ more expensive than its predecessor. If one takes into account the surcharge for the Core i7-1270P, which is 250€ for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G10, our review device should cost around 3,300€.

Case: Aluminium ThinkPad in storm grey

Lenovo did a complete overhaul of the case design for last year's G6 model generation, which is why there are no changes this year. On the outside, the X1 Yoga G7 continues to stand out from the traditionally black ThinkPads with its color scheme. Of course, the usual logos reveal the company affiliation and the storm grey colored surfaces also have clear advantages regarding susceptibility to dirt and fingerprints. The black ThinkPads tended to become "greasy" rather quickly, which is less of a problem here.

The X1 Yoga G7 makes use of aluminium.
The X1 Yoga G7 makes use of aluminium.

The stability of the aluminum construction, as always, is very good. The base unit only yields a little in the middle area, but this requires a lot of force and should thus pose no issue for normal typing. The display lid is extremely stable and we were unable to elicit any image errors even with selective points of pressure from behind. To our surprise, the only minor flaw was the two hinges, which are a little too smooth-running. Although the screen can be opened easily with one hand, the opening angle changed massively several times when we lifted or moved the base unit.

As with the recently reviewed Yoga 9i 14, the screen edges are relatively wide for a modern device, which is why the screen-to-body ratio is "only" 81 percent. In view of the high stability, however, we still think this is acceptable and the X1 Yoga G7 does not look old-fashioned at all. The compact stylus can still be stowed directly in the case, where it is also charged.

At just under 1.5 kg, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7 is one of the heaviest devices in our comparison group and the weight is definitely noticeable after a while, especially when used as a tablet. In terms of size, there is not much difference to the competitors. Only the HP DragonFly Max is noticeably more compact, but it also has a smaller 13.3-inch screen.

Hardware: ThinkPad offers everything except a card reader

Nothing has changed in terms of extensive connectivity compared to the predecessor. In addition to two modern Thunderbolt connections, there are also conventional USB-A inputs, so you can do without adapters in most cases. However, there is still no card reader.

Communication

In our review model, Lenovo has installed a current Wi-Fi 6E module from Intel. The AX211E was able to connect to our 6 GHz router from Asus (GT-AXE11000) without any problems, but we initially had some performance issues. A driver update directly from Intel helped here and the transfer rates in our standardised WLAN test were also very high afterwards. Only the transmission power dropped slightly after about 20 seconds. Overall, the performance is still very good.

Our test device is factory-equipped with a WWAN module from Fibocom (L860-GL) that supports 4G/LTE. In addition to the option of an eSIM, our model also offers a slot for a nano-SIM on the right side. Caution: If you do not order a WWAN module from the factory, the necessary antennas do not come installed in the case, nor is there a nano-SIM slot. Alongside the LTE module, Lenovo also offers an optional 5G modem.

The X1 Yoga can be equipped with LTE or 5G ex works.

Webcam

One improvement over last year's X1 Yoga G6 is the camera, which now uses a 1080p module with a mechanical shutter. The quality is acceptable in good lighting conditions, but still falls far short of the good quality front cameras found in smartphones. On the other hand, the additional security functions are interesting. First of all, the IR camera enables face recognition via Windows Hello. In the preinstalled Vantage software (in the red commercial version on the ThinkPads) there is the Zero Touch feature from Lenovo, which offers a number of security and management functions. For example, the laptop can lock itself automatically when you are no longer sitting in front of the display. This can be very practical, especially when you are on the move.

Maintenance

The bottom case cover is secured with 5 standard Phillips screws and can be removed very easily. Like previous models, however, there is not much one can do on the inside: Apart from the two small fans that can be cleaned, you only have access to the WWAN module and the M.2 2280 SSD, which is located under an additional (screwed) metal cover.

Input Devices: Lenovo sticks to 1.5mm stroke

Keyboard

While Lenovo already uses keyboards with a reduced key travel of 1.35mm in some models such as the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, the keys of the X1 Yoga G7 have the usual travel of 1.5mm. However, the height of the keys was already reduced in the predecessor, which definitely influenced the subjective typing feel. The keyboard is still very good overall and also offers advantages over Lenovo's consumer models such as the recently reviewed Yoga 9i 14. But if you are coming from older ThinkPad models in particular, you immediately notice that the keyboard has deteriorated in quality and that it no longer offers any real advantage over other business laptops from HP or Dell.

The two-stage white keyboard backlight helps in darker environments, but there is no automatic activation via a sensor. The power button sits on the right above the keyboard and also includes the fingerprint scanner, which works reliably.

Touchpad & Stylus

The compact stylus can be stowed in the casing.

The ClickPad still works perfectly and also generates a very muffled, yet high-quality sound when you press it down in the bottom area. The quality of the dedicated TrackPoint buttons has deteriorated somewhat, as they are a little loose and click much more loudly. On the other hand, mouse control works very well with both the ClickPad and the TrackPoint. 

Of course, the capacitive touchscreen can also be used for inputs and we did not encounter any problems here. We even liked the matte surface a bit better (especially when typing) than the OLED of the Yoga 9i 14 for example, because the matte surface creates less resistance. The compact stylus is always within easy reach in the case but it is also very small and thin. It is certainly sufficient for occasional notes but if you want to write a lot, you are much better off with a larger stylus like Lenovo's Precision Pen 2.

Minimal halos

Our X1 Yoga G7 review device comes equipped with a matte 1200p touchscreen (1920x1200), which we also know from the predecessor. However, a panel from a different supplier is used here: as in the past, the question of the panel seems to be a lottery game. Our panel from CSOT, for example, fails to reach the advertised brightness of 400 cd/m² and achieves an average of just over 360 cd/m², but the black level and contrast ratio are slightly better than last year's X1 Yoga G6 with the LG panel.

The subjective image quality of the matte panel is fundamentally acceptable, but bright areas look slightly grainy (you can also see this in the subpixel image) and in general, content and colors generally don't appear as sharp or vibrant as on 4K panels or good OLED screens. On the other hand, the IPS panel offers a very clear advantage with the absence of PWM flickering. The response times are also inconspicuous and there are no major problems with halos.

* ... smaller is better

Our analysis with the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer confirms that the ThinkPad performs very well in its factory state. There is no visible tinting, and color deviations compared to the sRGB reference color space all fall within the target range below 3.

Upon calibration (profile is available for free download above), performance improves a little but there is no difference to the naked eye, so additional calibration is definitely not necessary. The panel fully covers the small sRGB color space, which is why editing images/videos is also possible here without issue.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
22.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.2 ms rise
↘ 13.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.2 ms rise
↘ 22.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 58 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21764 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Viewing angle stability
Viewing angle stability

The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel has no points of criticism. The screen's matte surface pays off outdoors because there are no problems with reflections, even in bright surroundings. Direct light makes it somewhat more difficult to view content comfortably, but you should be able to find a suitable position in any situation. Here, reflective displays are clearly at a disadvantage, even if they subjectively offer better image quality.

Performance: Lenovo deploys Alder Lake P with vPro

 
 

Test Conditions

In contrast to Lenovo's consumer laptops, the ThinkPad's Vantage app hasn't offered its own performance profiles for some time now. Instead, these are integrated into the normal Windows settings, which makes it much easier for the user (and for us too) because here you don't have to test countless combinations. For the benchmarks and measurements, we used Windows' Best Performance mode. 

Processor: Core i7-1270P

Lenovo equips our review device with the new Core i7-1270P, which comes from the current Alder Lake P generation and has a hybrid architecture with 4 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores. Compared to the regular Core i7-1260P, the 1270P offers full vPro support and a 100 MHz higher clock speed (performance cores max. 4.8 GHz; efficiency cores max. 3.5 GHz). Lenovo sets the short-term TDP limit at 64 watts (which also corresponds to the maximum for the P CPUs), but this value is only reached for fractions of a second. After that, the value drops significantly and quickly settles at around 28 watts, which also corresponds to the predecessor.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6-20Y0S00200 Intel Core i7-1165G7: Ø804 (719.39-910.5)

In the benchmarks, this means that the nominally faster Core i7-1270P is clearly behind the 1260P in the Lenovo 9i 14 because the TDP values are higher there. The single-core performance is also somewhat lower than expected: while we observed a single-core consumption of around 26 watts in the Yoga 9i 14, it is "only" around 21-22 watts here. Compared to the old Tiger-Lake CPUs, multi-core performance is noticeably better due to the higher number of cores, but in terms of single-core performance, the advantage over the X1 Yoga G6 with the Core i7-1165G7 is negligible at 3%. High-end convertibles are not yet available with AMD CPUs, especially in the business category.

The performance is completely sufficient for a mobile convertible, but you can save yourself the extra expense for the supposedly faster CPU of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6. As we'll see later in the stress test, the processor's power consumption is further limited to around 18 watts after about 20 minutes. In battery mode, power consumption is limited to a maximum of 36 watts, but this value also drops to 28 watts after a few seconds. This has no influence on single-core performance, but in multi-core tests the deficit is around 15-20 percent. More CPU benchmarks are available in our technology section.

System Performance

The subjective performance impression is very good, which of course is due to the fast processor and the PCIe 4.0 SSD. The synthetic benchmarks are also very good. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga G7 comes with Windows 11 Pro and we experienced no problems with crashes or hang-ups during the review.

DPC Latencies

Under the present BIOS version, the X1 Yoga G7 revealed some problems in our standardized latency test (web browsing, YouTube 4K playback, CPU load) and is thus not optimally suited for the use of real-time audio applications. There were also some skipped frames (dropped frames) during video playback.

Storage Devices

The PCIe 4.0 SSD gets too hot.
The PCIe 4.0 SSD gets too hot.

A fast PCIe 4.0 SSD from Samsung is installed in our review device, which also achieves very good transfer rates in the benchmarks. However, performance drops by about half under constant load, which takes a few minutes. The issue here appears to be the temperature because, as the sensors indicate, performance is throttled as soon as the drive reaches 70°C. Nevertheless, performance is still good here and the throttling shouldn't play a major role, especially in everyday use. Then again, this also shouldn't actually occur in a high-end device. The PM9A1 (OEM version of the 980 Pro) offers a capacity of 512GB, of which 427GB is available after starting the device for the first time. Further SSD benchmarks are listed here.
