Lenovo announces Yoga Slim 7 Carbon powered by AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs, optional MX450 graphics, and 14-inch QHD+ OLED display starting from €1,099
We had recently reviewed the Intel Core i7-1165G7-based Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, which is an ultra-lightweight laptop made of carbon fiber and aluminum-magnesium alloy. Now, Lenovo is launching an AMD Ryzen 5000 version, the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon.
The Yoga Slim 7 Carbon weighs in at about 1.1 kg with a slim 14.9 mm profile. Lenovo said that the laptop uses an aerospace-grade magnesium alloy reinforced with a multi-layer carbon fiber for high durability. Powering the laptop is a choice between AMD Ryzen 7 5800U and Ryzen 5 5600U APUs complemented by optional Nvidia GeForce MX450 dedicated graphics. Memory configurations are available in 8 GB and 16 GB LPDDR4X RAM along with a choice of 512 GB or 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSDs.
Lenovo has endowed the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon with a 14-inch QHD+ 16:10 OLED display that is rated to cover 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. The display is certified for DisplayHDR 500 True Black with a peak brightness of 400-nits and a 90 Hz refresh rate. Essentially, this seems to be the same display that featured in the Yoga Slim 7i Pro that was announced during CES 2021.
Connectivity options include 2x2 Wi-Fi 6E/Wi-Fi 6 with Bluetooth 5.1. Also available are a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C, 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C that supports DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 3.0, and a combo audio jack. Lenovo claims a 14.5-hour runtime with the included 61 WHr battery that can be topped-up in 15 minutes for a 3-hour usage thanks to Lenovo's Rapid Charge Express.
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon also features a dedicated AI chip powered by Lenovo AI Core for enhanced security and power management.
The AMD Ryzen-based Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon will be available from November 21 starting from €1,099.
