Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7-14ARE

85.3% The Ryzen 7 4800U is an Absolute Monster: Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 14 Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
After facing a few delays, AMD's premier Ryzen 7 4800U is finally starting to hit store shelves. Results are insane for a 14-inch subnotebook to the point where it'd be tough to recommend an Intel counterpart when given the same price.
90% Lenovo IdeaPad/Yoga Slim 7 14ARE05 review (AMD Rzyen 7 4800U, Vega 8) – unmatched in its class
Source: Ultrabook Review English
As an all-rounder, I'm having a hard time finding any other device that offers the same kind of value for the same kind of money as this Lenovo IdeaPad (Yoga) Slim 7. This is the most capable implementation of the mobile AMD Ryzen platform we've seen so far, and Lenovo didn't skimp on the build quality, screen, thermal design, speakers or inputs either. At the same time, don't expect this to feel as premium or offer all the bells and whistles available on 2000+ USD/EUR ultraportables, because it doesn't. But it's also a much more affordable option, and pretty much unmatched in its segment right now.

Review: Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 (AMD Ryzen 7 4800U)

AMD launched the Ryzen Mobile 4000-series chips with much gusto at the turn of the year. For reasons that are obvious, it has taken a while for laptop manufacturers to adopt the technology across their Ultrabook and gaming ranges.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 performance preview: The high-end Ryzen laptop we've been waiting for
Source: PC World English
When Intel unwraps its 11th-gen “Tiger Lake” CPUs next week, we’ll witness an epic battle for the soul of thin and light laptops unlike any we have ever seen before. Our earlier prediction that Tiger Lake will lose against Ryzen 4000 in multi-threaded tasks stays the same. Well, kind of. After seeing the Ryzen 7 4800U’s results, we actually think it’ll be a total blowout in multi-threaded performance now. Graphics, however, might just be closer than we expected. And one area Tiger Lake is likely to win big is single-threaded performance, which is actually probably more important for most of what it is done in a small laptop.

Comment

Model:

The latest to join the Lenovo family is the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7-14ARE laptop. As far as the design is concerned, this laptop is entirely built out of aluminium, with the display featuring an optional glass cover. Interestingly, the glass cover reduces the profile of the device to 14.9mm (15.1mm for the standard version) and increases the weight to 1.40 kg (1.33 kg for the standard version). However, it should be noted that the thin body carries the disadvantage of less structural integrity. Although there is some visible flex to the machine when some force is applied, there are no significant squeaky sounds noticeable. The lid can be opened with one hand, and it has a slight protrusion (or a notch), which makes it rather easy to lift. In addition, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 seems to be pretty resistant to axial forces, which might be due to the glass cover. In terms of its keyboard, the key travel is a little short, but the feedback is clicky, making it not exceptionally comfortable while using it. However, the overall size of the keycaps is good. Apart from that, the Up and Down arrow keys are still halved, and they house the Page Up and Down keys through a combination with the Function button.

A small touchpad is situated just below the keyboard, with a glass surface and great gliding properties. Additionally, it has natural levels of resistance when clicked, thus making it really comfortable and seamless to use. It is also worth noting that Lenovo has retained front-firing speakers on this laptop. The Power button is located on the right side of the device, which also serves as an optional fingerprint reader. The bottom plate houses the ventilation grills, while the heat is driven away from two cut-outs located between the lid and the base.

As far as connectivity is concerned, there is a single USB Type-C port that can be used for charging and data transfer, an HDMI-2.0b connector (supporting 4096 x 2160p at 60 Hz), another USB Type-C 3.1 (Gen-2) port that can also be used for charging and supports DisplayPort 1.4b output with a maximum resolution of 5120 x 2880p at 60 Hz, and lastly an audio jack on the left side of the device. In contrast, on the right, there is the Power button/fingerprint reader combo, two USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen-1) ports, and a MicroSD reader. However, there is no Thunderbolt connection on the AMD version (despite the label next to the second Type-C port suggesting otherwise), as this technology is currently still reserved for Intel devices. In terms of its display, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 sports a Full-HD IPS display. The maximum measured brightness is 270 nits (cd/m2) in the middle of the screen, with 268 nits (cd/m2) average across the surface and a maximum deviation of only 5%. Overall, this laptop definitely deserves exploration, although depending on the need of the users.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
