Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga Slim 9 14IAP7
Intel's Core i7-1280P makes the Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i the presumably fastest ultrabook of this time. Thanks to the 3K 90 Hz OLED display, low emissions, and high-quality quad speakers, you get a sturdy and nifty laptop.

If you have $2,000 or so to throw at an ultraportable, the Slim 9i most certainly deserves a spot on your shortlist. It provides everything on a luxury buyer’s list: a beautiful and thin yet rugged design highlighted by a 3D glass lid that protects a high-resolution OLED display that’s powered by the latest Intel silicon and an ample 32GB of RAM. Its average battery life is still long enough to last through even the longest workdays and is offset by additional attractions including a roomy and comfortable keyboard and touchpad, a 1080p webcam, and jarringly robust audio output from the laptop’s four speakers. The Lenovo Slim 9i is one of our favorite ultraportables of 2022 and easily earns an Editors’ Choice award for its luxurious design, gorgeous OLED display, and strong performance.

The Lenovo Slim 9i is a great laptop. I love it, despite its finnicky keyboard. One thing that I love about Lenovo’s 9i products is that it’s adding an OLED screen to already great audio, so if you’re using it to watch movies or something, it’s just a tremendous experience.

Sure, the Lenovo Slim 9i is expensive. But, it provides a premium build that’s second to none, with an aesthetic that’s cohesive and gorgeous, and its performance is class-leading. The laptop will meet the most demanding productivity user’s needs and can serve as a low-end workstation for creators. Battery life isn’t the best, and the keyboard is too shallow, but overall, the Slim 9i lives up to its price. It’s among the best 14-inch clamshell laptops you can buy, rivaling Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 and well above lower-priced options like the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus.
