Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon 13 laptop review - powerful ultraportable laptop under 1 kg

90Hz WQHD display on the go. The new Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is a compact 13-inch laptop that weighs less than 1 kg thanks to its body made of carbon fibre and magnesium. Despite this, the Alder Lake-P processor manages to deliver great performance and the laptop also features a 90Hz WQHD touchscreen.

Lenovo has been offering the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon 13 – an ultraportable 13-inch laptop – for years now. The manufacturer has given the latest 7th gen device a brand-new chassis as well as a new 16:10 display and 12th gen Intel processors. The laptop even features the faster Alder Lake-P chips (Core i5 or i7). Without giving away too much, let's just say that the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is capable of extracting a lot of performance from its processor whilst staying under 1 kg.

The model we are reviewing (product number: 82U9005FGE) is equipped with a Core i7-1260P, 16 GB of LPDDR5-4800 RAM, a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a 13.3-inch 2.5K touchscreen (2,560 x 1,600, 16:10) that is capable of running at a higher refresh rate of 90 Hz. The review unit is the top-of-the-line model with an RRP of 1,499 Euro (US$1,490). There is also a cheaper configuration (Core i5-1240P, 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD and a non-touch WQHD display) starting at 1,299 Euro (US$1,299).

Case - Made of carbon fibre and magnesium

Lenovo has given the latest Yoga Slim 7i Carbon a new chassis. The body's fundamental design is now more in line with other current Yoga models, such as the Yoga 9i and Yoga 7. Whilst the base section of its predecessor had very sharp edges, the new Yoga Slim 7i Carbon now features a more rounded design. There is nothing about the chassis that stands out visually apart from the small logos. And overall the chassis has a very clean look. Besides the dark-grey (Onyx Grey) on our review unit, the laptop is also available in a lighter shade of grey (Cloud Grey) and white (Moon White). The screen bezel is fairly thin, especially at the sides, resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of 83%.

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is available in three colours

The chassis is crafted from high-quality materials. The cover lid is made of carbon fibre and has a smooth surface. For such a thin lid, it feels very robust overall. Although the lid flexes a little when twisted, doing so doesn't result in any image distortion. Similarly, applying pressure at various spots on the rear also doesn't affect the image on the screen. The hinge itself is relatively smooth and allows for a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees. Despite having a very light base section, the laptop can still be opened using just one hand. However, the hinge can't prevent the lid from bobbing back and forth slightly. 

Made of a magnesium-aluminium alloy, the base section is quite sturdy as a whole. Only the middle portion flexes slightly when pressure is applied. But the base section doesn't make any creaking sounds when bent and twisted. There is also nothing to complain about its torsional strength. The base section has a slightly rough surface that feels nice to the touch. We also didn't notice any problems with fingerprints on our review unit.

The new Yoga Slim 7i is slightly wider than its predecessor, but marginally thinner and not as deep. Overall, the review unit is one of the more compact laptops in our comparison group, but the differences between the devices are not dramatic. However, the story is different with its weight. At less than 1 kg (2.2 lb), the new Yoga Slim 7i is only surpassed by the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro in terms of lightness. All the other laptops in our comparison are noticeably heavier at 1.1 to 1.3 kg (2.4 to 2.9 lb). Lenovo likewise included a very compact 65-watt wall charger that weighs a mere 187 g (0.4 lb).

Features - Thunderbolt 4 support

The already modest port selection on the predecessor has been cut down further – one of the two Thunderbolt ports and the 3.5 mm audio jack are missing on the new Yoga Slim 7i. This leaves only one USB-C port on each side of the device, with only the one on the left supporting Thunderbolt 4. At least you still can connect the charger to the laptop on either side.

Connectivity

Lenovo has included the latest Intel AX211E wireless module, which supports the new Wi-Fi 6E standard and Bluetooth 5.2. We didn't encounter any issues when connecting to the 6 GHz network on our Asus reference router. Both the transfer rates and signal quality were excellent. However, there is no WWAN option available.

Webcam

A standard 720p webcam sits above the screen in the bezel. Whilst the camera does its job, it doesn't produce particularly good images even in good lighting. The Yoga Slim offers an electronic privacy shutter that can be activated using a switch located on the right of the chassis. The device also features an IR camera that allows you to sign in with Windows Hello facial recognition.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured in place with a few Torx screws (T5) and can be easily removed. The RAM is soldered to the motherboard, but at least the M.2 2280 SSD and Wi-Fi module are replaceable. Of course, you can also access and clean the fan after removing the bottom panel. And the battery is only held down by screws.

Input devices - Short key travel

The keyboard is one of the weaker aspects of the Yoga Slim 7i. It has a short travel of only 1 mm. And you will notice a difference in quality when comparing it with the keyboards on other Lenovo models such as the Yoga 7 14 and Yogi 9i. Furthermore, keystrokes are relatively loud, which doesn't make the keyboard feel very premium. The keyboard is definitely serviceable as long as you don't type a lot, but there are much better options out there. Lenovo has included a white backlight with two brightness levels. The light can also be activated automatically with the help of a sensor.

The smooth clickpad works very well and has no problems recognising gestures with up to four fingers. At 10.5 x 7 cm (4.1 x 2.8"), the clickpad is also spacious enough. However, as is so often the case with touchpads, pressing down the bottom section of the clickpad requires a relatively good amount of force and creates a very loud noise, which makes the touchpad feel rather cheap. In everyday use, it is substantially more comfortable to just tap the touchpad for click inputs. The touchscreen works very well despite its anti-glare surface.

Display - WQHD touchscreen running at 90 Hz

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is available with two different WQHD panel options, one with and one without touch functionality. Our review unit comes with the optional touchscreen with an anti-glare surface. Whilst the display is much less reflective than those without this feature, it still reflects more light than matt displays. The 16:10 display has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600, and we think it looks excellent. Contents on the screen are sharp and colours appear vibrant. Furthermore, the panel is capable of a higher refresh rate of 90 Hz, meaning that motion will appear very smooth on screen. The display also supports HDR, and screen brightness can be automatically adjusted with the help of a sensor.

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon uses a different panel from that on its predecessor. Although the new panel is slightly brighter, its peak brightness falls short of the manufacturer's claim of 400 cd/m² and only managed to hit 362 cd/m² on average, putting the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon at the bottom of our comparison. However, the display has a good black level of 0.26 cd/m², resulting in a high contrast ratio of about 1,500:1. Screen bleeding is hardly visible. And the IPS panel doesn't use PWM and has a very wide viewing angle. 

Despite the anti-glare feature, the display is still slightly reflective.

Lenovo claims that the display is already factory-calibrated – this is something we can confirm after analysing it with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2). Even though it has a very slight blue tint and its colour temperature is a little bit on the cool side, you wouldn't notice this in day-to-day use. Right out of the box, the average colour difference was well under the crucial threshold of 3 when the sRGB colour gamut was used as a reference. We did calibrate the panel later on but couldn't improve the display's colour accuracy any further. Therefore, we are not going provide any colour profiles for you to download. The display is able to cover almost the entire sRGB colour space and is thus suitable for photo and video editing.

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
17.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.2 ms rise
↘ 10.7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.9 ms rise
↘ 18.1 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The anti-glare screen has more limitations than a matt panel when it comes to using the device outdoors. We also wish that the display would be brighter. On a very bright day, you probably need to find a shady spot if you want to be able to get work done properly outside.

Performance - Powered by Alder Lake-P

 
 

Test conditions

Similar to most Lenovo consumer laptops, the Yoga Slim 7i comes with the Lenovo Vantage Software, which offers three performance modes (Battery Saver, Intelligent Cooling & High Performance) in addition to the power plans in Windows. You can toggle between them by pressing Fn+P. On our review unit, we were surprised that performance remained the same in all three modes. During our testing, the processor always settled down at 28 watts after initially running at 46 watts for around 20 seconds, regardless of the mode selected. The only difference we noticed was the amount of fan noise generated. We used the "Intelligent Cooling" preset when running our tests. And we wouldn't recommend using the "Battery Saver" mode when the laptop is running under heavy load, as surface temperatures may otherwise become too high (more on that later). It is likely that Lenovo is still going to make adjustments here via BIO updates.

Processor - Core i7-1260P

You might be expecting to find a U-series processor inside such a light and compact device. But Lenovo has instead chosen to use a more powerful Alder Lake-P CPU with two additional performance cores. Whilst the base model is equipped with a Core i5-1240P, our review unit comes with a faster Core i7-1260P. The CPU performance is surprisingly good. Because the processor briefly ran at 46 watts before stabilising at 28 watts, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon performed well in short benchmarks and was excellent at handling short load spikes.

You can also see this behaviour in the Cinebench multi-loop test: the laptop's performance dropped significantly after the first run. Nevertheless, the Yoga Slim is still very competitive and delivers more than twice the performance of its predecessor (with a Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7) in multi-core scenarios. All that aside, the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U in the Asus Zenbook S 13 is still a little faster and even uses slightly less power.

The single-core performance of the Core i7 is excellent and also better than what current AMD chips are capable of. This, however, comes at the price of higher power usage. The CPU delivers consistent performance when running on battery. You can visit this page to find more CPU benchmarks.

DPC latency

During our standardised latency test (web browsing, 4K YouTube video playback, CPU load), the review unit didn't exhibit any major issues when running on the latest BIOS version. But one driver (ACPI) caused some minor problems.

Mass storage

The M.2 2280 SSD is located right beside the processor and the heat pipe.
The M.2 2280 SSD is located right beside the processor and the heat pipe.

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon 13 is equipped with a Samsung PCIe 4.0 SSD (PM9A1), which is one of the fastest drives on the market right now. However, we noticed the Yoga Slim suffers from a problem that also affects many other thin and light laptops. Although the SSD is able to deliver very high transfer rates in excess of 6 GB/s, its performance starts to fluctuate drastically under sustained loads due to heat issues. In everyday use, however, you won't really notice any limitations because data transfer rates are still above 3 GB/s. Our review unit has a storage capacity of 1 TB – 902 GB of which is usable after the initial setup. You can find more SSD benchmarks here.
