Lenovo has unveiled a new version of the Yoga Slim 9i, a 14-inch laptop that will be available with Intel Core i5-1240P or Core i7-1280P processors. Also, Lenovo will only offer the Yoga Slim 9i 14IAP7 with OLED displays, plus Intel's new Arc A350M dedicated GPU and up to 32 GB of DDR5-5600 RAM.

Lenovo has revealed a new Yoga Slim 9i as part of its broader refreshed Yoga lineup. Unsurprisingly, Lenovo has upgraded the Yoga Slim 9i to Intel Alder Lake processors, reflected in its new 14IAP7 model name. However, this year's Yoga Slim 9i has also received optional Intel Arc Graphics. Specifically, Lenovo states that the Intel Arc A350M will be available, a dedicated GPU with 6 Xe cores and 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.

For some reason, Lenovo will begin offering the Intel Arc A350M in 'wave 2' of the Yoga Slim 9i's rollout. Still, the machine should be configurable with either a Core i5-1240P or a Core i7-1280P at launch, along with 16 GB or 32 GB of dual-channel DDR5-5600 RAM and 512 GB or 1 TB of PCIe Gen4 (M.2 2242) storage. Additionally, the Yoga Slim 9i comes with three Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and four speakers that should output at up to 10 W.

Separately, the laptop also has a 75 Wh battery, a 180-degree hinge, an IR camera for Windows Hello, and a 1080p webcam with an electronic camera shutter. Furthermore, Lenovo will sell the 315 x 214.4 x 14.9 mm and 1.37 kg machine with the following display options:
