Lenovo Yoga Slim 7-14ARE

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.

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 Archive.org version
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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 performance preview: The high-end Ryzen laptop we've been waiting for
Source: PC World English Archive.org version
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.

84.4% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 14 laptop review - With Nvidia GPU against AMD | Notebookcheck
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is available in a 14-inch version with both AMD and Intel processors. In this test, we want to find out whether the Intel model with the dedicated GPU from Nvidia is the better choice, or whether it's better to go for a Ryzen processor.

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is light, powerful, stylish, and versatile, and it doesn't cost the earth. Relatively low storage, which won't be a dealbreaker for everyone, and slightly questionable build quality are the only real downsides. Otherwise, the Yoga Slim 7 is an excellent choice. If storage is less of an issue, and you don’t want to spend close to a grand for a Windows 10 laptop with a battery that’ll go the distance, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is a solid and stylish choice.

With its hardware, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 (14IIL05) has a desktop computing performance. Although it compensates with a fingerprint scanner, it has everything that a working professional needs. Ideal for those who are always on the go, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is one of the daily workhorses that can work and play. It performs faster, provides better connectivity and battery life, and has enough ports for presentations and peripherals. Lenovo also made the latest Yoga Slim series more affordable with its AMD Ryzen 5 4500 variant mated with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD priced at PHP 49,995. This particular Intel-powered model, however, retails at PHP 69,995. That being said, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is worth every peso.

80% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 review: The benchmark for all-rounders
Source: The Times of India English
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 proves to be an all-rounder. It has a fairly decent screen, doesn’t heat up, works well with multiple apps and browsers, has good Dolby tuned stereo speakers, features all the basic ports and has amazing battery life. If you want a laptop that is a bang for the buck, this comes really close. At ₹78,990 this seems to have it all. Unfortunately, there’s just one variant available if you specifically want to go for the AMD chipset version. The Yoga Slim 7i (Intel version) is also there with several iterations based on different storage and RAM capacities. However, considering the fact that Intel 11th-gen is still at 10nm (for laptops) and AMD 4000 Series is at 7nm, makes the latter a bit more efficient in terms of balancing power and battery.

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 review - An excellent all-day laptop for content creators
Source: Tech Nave English Archive.org version
With a starting price of RM3499, I think this is an excellent laptop for work and creating contents. Personally, I totally love the battery performance and dual stereo speakers. The face unlock feature and the auto-brightness adjustment are nice additions as well. If you want to play some games, it's still fine but just not Triple-A video game titles. Laptops like this are generally quite expensive and could go over the RM5K mark easily, but if compared with the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 which we reviewed earlier this year, I would prefer the Yoga Slim 7.

Lenovo's 14-inch notebook features a powerful Ryzen 7 4700U APU with NVMe SSD and offers decent battery life. Noise and temperature emissions are fairly low for a device this thin.
100% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 (AMD) review: The Golf GTI of compact ultrabooks
Source: Expert Reviews English
For £850 the new Ryzen-powered Slim 7 packs quite a punch. Its octa-core processor stomps all over Intel’s latest Core i5 silicon while at the same time offering outstandingly good battery life. The display is superb and will appeal to anyone who thinks gloss-finish screens are the work of the devil. The speakers don’t let the side down either. Add a very good keyboard and rock-solid aluminium body into the mix and you’ve got a compelling package. As I said at the beginning, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 is a very fine laptop indeed – truly a hot hatch among budget ultrabooks.

75% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i review: Portable and good for the price
Source: India Today English
For the launch price of Rs 79,990, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i finds a sweet spot in the market because there are direct competitors. If you want a portable, stylish, and good enough laptop for productivity apps, browsing the internet, playing some games, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i makes the cut. The laptop is now available for less across leading platforms. But you can also look at the Asus ZenBook 14 with Core i5 processor that matches the specifications sheet of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i. Then, you have the ROG Strix G15 around the same price as that of the Yoga Slim 7i. And if you have a generous budget, I will say your best bet is the MacBook Air with Apple's M1 chipset that retails for Rs 92,900 in India.Live TV

Stylish yet powerful! Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i reviewed
Source: Exhibit.tech English Archive.org version
Priced at approximately INR 78,000, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i does have an expensive price tag but as mentioned earlier it is positioned in the luxury lifestyle category. The laptop’s decent battery life, all-aluminum built along with a few other highlights make it worth the cost. However, a touchscreen integration could have been a valuable addition.

79% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro (14-inch) review: A robust no-frills laptop, but battery life disappoints
Source: Zdnet.com English
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro (a.k.a. Lenovo Slim 7i ) is a no-frills 14-inch laptop with a robust chassis and a great keyboard. The IPS screen's 2.8K resolution delivers clear images, text and video with up to 400 nits brightness. It's a shame the display doesn't rotate fully, and many will bemoan the lack of a touch screen option. But what really lets the Yoga Slim 7i Pro down is its battery life, which would not see me through a normal working day.

Our review of the Yoga Slim 7i Pro in the Philippines shows that Lenovo is elevating standards as far as premium mid-range notebooks are concerned. Sticking to the same design language of the previous-generation Yoga S740, Lenovo introduced substantial upgrades to the Yoga Slim 7i Pro that include a higher-resolution IPS panel with 90hz refresh rate, improved keyboard, and a more powerful MX450 discrete GPU.

90% Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro is a wonderful mid-range ultra-portable. While it uses the same 11th Intel CPUs we’ve seen in laptops since 2020, Lenovo still manages to make some progress without resorting to stuff few people will appreciate or use. We’re talking about the screen. The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro has an unusually high resolution 2880 x 1800 pixel display, not the 1080p that is still the norm at the price. However, this is just a flourish among a series of great elements that make the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro so enjoyable to use. It has a good keyboard, a glass touchpad, decent enough battery life and excellent build, hitting all the most important bases for an ultraportable.

79% Lenovo Slim 7 14 review: A competent, well-executed laptop
Source: PC World English
The Lenovo Slim 7 14 is boring in the best way possible. It’s a competent laptop that delivers good build quality and solid performance at a reasonable price, yet it lacks any single feature or advantage that might give it a clear edge over the competition. In this it differs from Lenovo’s more expensive laptops, which often include cutting-edge features like Mini-LED displays or a miniature soundbar built into the hinge. The result is a competent, well-priced laptop that should make most people happy, but your buying decision will ultimately come down to price. If the Slim 7 14 happens to be on sale for less than an Asus Zenbook 14 OLED or the HP Pavilion Plus Laptop 14, get the Lenovo. And if the opposite is true, go with the competitor.

70% Lenovo Slim 7i 14 Gen 9 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The new Lenovo Slim 7i 14 deploys a peppy Intel Core Ultra chip to good effect inside a nicely built, compact metal body. This is more or less exactly the experience you’d expect from looking at the laptop—a travel-ready and long-lasting system that feels good in hand. The OLED screen is vibrant, though a higher resolution may be expected at this price, like those seen on its competition. And there’s also no discrete graphics to sweeten the pot, unlike Lenovo’s own 2023 Slim Pro 7 Gen 8, which included one for less. Still, it doesn’t err in any major way; the Acer Swift Go 14 is a close comparison, swapping a better screen for more RAM and storage. The roughly $200 price difference over the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED can be explained by the doubled RAM and storage, but neither is especially necessary in this category, and the Zenbook boasts a higher-resolution 120Hz display at $999.

Source: Laptop Mag English
Overall, the Lenovo Slim 7i Gen 9 14-inch is a well-rounded, compact laptop that performed well in all of our tests. It handles everyday productivity tasks with ease and it can even run some casual games with the integrated Intel Arc graphics. The 10-hour battery life is plenty to get you through a full day of work or studying and the bright, crisp OLED display is easy on the eyes. While the webcam and touchpad on the Lenovo Slim 7i could be better, the snappy keyboard and stellar audio help make up for it. The Slim 7i also outperformed some more expensive competitors in our tests, including the 15-inch M3 Macbook Air, so it’s definitely worth considering if you’re looking for a compact productivity laptop.

Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i is a strong contender for those seeking a laptop with solid performance, excellent battery life, and a stunning display. The latest generation of Intel’s processors brings exciting advancements, particularly with the inclusion of AI features that promise even more functionality once developers tap into the new NPUs. The Yoga Slim 7i still manages to handle graphics-intensive tasks and light gaming remarkably well despite lacking a dedicated GPU, unlike previous Intel laptops. Its sleek design and feature-rich build add to its appeal, although a faster display would have been a nice addition, the overall image quality is impressive. All in all, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i is a solid choice for users in search of a thin-and-light laptop.

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.

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.
