Like Dell with the XPS line, Lenovo embraces the 16:10 aspect ratio. The upcoming Lenovo Yoga 7 Pro features the taller screen ratio with a new 14 inch display, combining it with the most powerful AMD laptop processor: The AMD Ryzen 9 4900H.

Lenovo's Yoga brand has been shifted from being used only for convertible laptops to Lenovo's general premium laptop consumer brand, similar to how Dell uses the XPS brand for their high-end consumer laptops.

It is probably no coincidence that Dell shifted the XPS line to 16:10 screens and that Lenovo is now doing the same with the Yoga line. Case in point: The new Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro.

Unlike older Yoga machines, this Lenovo laptop has a 14 inch screen in the 16:10 aspect ratio. The taller aspect ratio results in smaller screen bezels below and above the display. There are going to be two screen options: A 300 cd/m² panel with a resolution of 2,240 x 1,400 (which Lenovo calls 2.2k) and a 400 cd/m² panel with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 (2.8k). 

This is not the only interesting aspect about the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro: It is powered by AMD Ryzen processors. To be more specific: The more powerful H class (45 W), with the AMD Ryzen 9 4900H as the fastest available choice. The processor is backed up by up to 16 GB LPDDR4X memory and a 61 Wh battery.

These components are in a 1.45 kg heavy aluminum chassis, which is available in silver or grey and with a glass-cover in front of the screen or without. It features a reverse notch above the screen, 2 W stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos as well as two USB C 3.2 Gen 2 and a single USB A port.

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro will be available in the EMEA region in August of 2020, for a starting price of €799. This may not be true for all countries however, as the German press release says that it will not be available until 2021.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
