If performance and portability are your priority, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon 2023 is easy to recommend. The company makes no compromises with the build quality. The weight distribution is also very balanced, which makes the laptop weightless in your backpack. While it does not include the latest 13th-Gen Intel Core processor, the 12th-Gen Intel Core i7 CPU can handle most tasks and the battery backup is also decent. The GPU department is average, therefore, don't expect the laptop to run heavy titles. I like that both sides of the laptop can be charged via the Type-C port. It removes the hassle of carrying an extra charger in the bag. All you need to ensure is that you have a PD charger, which can be used to charge your Android phone, wireless headphones, Kindle, and even the latest-gen iPad. iPhone users can also use an adapter with PD charging support, though the wire should have a Type-C port at the other end. However, at Rs 1.32 lakh, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is undoubtedly expensive, and if you don't care much about the build quality, the MacBook Air remains a valuable buy in this range. I may not recommend this laptop to students, but business customers who are always on the go can consider the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon as it won't take too much space in your bag and compromise productivity.

After spending a considerable amount of time with the Slim 7i Carbon the thing that I really like the most about it is its size and portability. This ultra-portable is only 2.17 lbs and super-thin being 14.8mm at its thickest point. This combined with the smaller 65W power adapter makes travelling or even just taking this laptop to and from work a breeze. On top of that with the rounded edges you have a really sleek package. This laptop packs in the Intel Core i7-1260P, 16 GB LPDDR5 memory, and a super-fast PCIe solid state drive. This means your boot times are going to be minimal and you’ll be able to throw pretty much anything in terms of productivity at this laptop. For me, I was able to do all of my daily tasks with ease on this laptop. This included web browsing, photo editing, e-mailing, etc. You are also getting very fast connectivity options like WiFi 6E and Thunderbolt 4. I really like that instead of a normal 60 Hz display Lenovo has included a 90 Hz display. This just looks better and smoother overall, which you’ll definitely appreciate, even if productivity applications. I will have to say I would have much rather have seen an OLED display though. With the thin and light design you are going to have some compromises. I think that the biggest has to be that you are only getting two USB-C ports in terms of connectivity. While Lenovo does include a dongle that gives you HDMI, DVI, a USB-A port, and headphone jack it is a bit clunky. I really wish Lenovo would design a dongle that sort of fit flush with the side of the laptop. Also I was very unimpressed with the 720p webcam. In the world of Zoom and Team meetings it would have nice to have at least a 1080p webcam here.I think that if you are looking for a thin and light laptop in the 13-14-inch size the Slim 7i Carbon should be on your list. It is more than powerful enough for most daily tasks and it is one very sleek package. The review model that we took a look at today is currently not available on Lenovo’s website, but there is an identical model that just has a larger SSD (1TB vs 512GB) for $1149.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon an 8 out of 10 score.

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is an ultralight laptop made from Carbon Fiber Webcore 2.0 and aerospace-grade magnesium-aluminum alloy, weighing just 0.97 Kgs. It comes with a backlit keyboard and a high-performance 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1260P processor paired with 16 GB Soldered LPDDR5 RAM. However, the slim design has downsides, such as limited ports and the absence of a fingerprint reader. The laptop features an anti-glare IPS PureSight display with 2.5K resolution, 400 nits brightness, and 90Hz refresh rate, but no OLED display. The battery life lasts up to 10 hours on paper but falls short in everyday use, lasting just over 7 hours. So, if you're searching for a perfect laptop for your day-to-day usage, then the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, at its price tag of Rs. 131990, is one of the best options you can consider.

The Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon is probably one of the most impressive ultralight laptops I’ve tried so far. It comes in a very solid, and durable package that is the lightest laptop I’ve ever reviewed. It offers solid performance for the size and has a decent screen that you would not disappoint anybody who looked at it. Lastly, the battery just goes on and on and you barely have to charge the device. The Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon does everything that it is made to do very well and I can recommend it to anyone looking for a stylish and solid ultrabook.

The Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon seems like an ideal choice for folks who want a reliable hybrid work computer. It’s small, lightweight and has plenty of power to let you complete most everyday work tasks. On top of that, it’s also a fletching device that fits nicely into most working (and non-working) environments. Based on my limited hands-on time with the device, it should be a solid machine for modern-day workers. I look forward to fully trying out the Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon when it releases in June.

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.
