85% Lenovo Yoga Slim 6 review (2023 14APU8 model, AMD Ryzen 7 7840U)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This Lenovo Yoga Slim 6 is one of the best-value mid-range laptops available today. It's built well and looks good, offers good inputs and IO and a beautiful display, and bundles competent hardware that can handle daily chores and occasional work/gaming loads well. All for way under 1000 EUR over here. My only concern is with the OLED panel on this variant; if possible, I'd rather get one of the IPS options.

Lenovo Yoga Slim 6 hands on: First impressions of the 2023 ultra-portable notebook
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Lenovo Slim 6 has a lot to love based on our first impressions. We love the solid aluminium build quality, there are plenty of ports available and from what we have experienced so far, you get a decent sized display within a portable format. We have yet to test the performance of the Yoga Slim 6 so we will reserve any judgement on hardware until we have seen and experienced this device in full, but we have plenty of enthusiasm from what we've seen so far.

How to open Lenovo Yoga Slim 6i (14", Gen 8, 14IAP8) - disassembly and upgrade options

Lenovo Yoga Slim 6i (14, Gen 8, 14IAP8) review – thin and light machine with Alder Lake P-series CPU options
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 6i (14, Gen 8, 14IAP8) is a good compact device that will not stretch your wallet too much. The build quality impresses us – the laptop is made of aluminum and that’s why the device feels sturdy. We observe a small amount of flex in some areas on the lid and on the base but nothing serious. The design is modern, and the notebook is a good choice for people who are always on the go because of the low weight of the machine (1.31 kg or 1.35 kg depending on the battery model) and its thin profile – 14.9 mm. The bezels around the display are narrow and the upper one is rich in extras. There, you can find a 1080p Web camera with a privacy shutter, as well as IR and ToF sensors. The keyboard has a backlight and it’s comfortable for typing because of the decent key travel and the clicky feedback.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

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.

AMD Phoenix (Zen 4, Ryzen 7040):

R7 7840U: A powerful laptop processor (APU) of the Phoenix product family. Its eight Zen 4 cores run at 3.3 GHz to 5.1 GHz and are SMT-enabled for a total of 16 processing threads.

14.00:

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.
