Lenovo announces the Yoga 7i and Yoga Slim 7i as part of its Intel Tiger Lake refresh
Lenovo is one of the first OEMs to announce Tiger Lake-powered laptops, although it also new Renoir-based machines in the works too. One of the examples of the former is the Yoga Slim 7i, which has a 13.3-inch display. The screen operates in a 16:10 aspect ratio and at a native resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels; however, the panel peaks at 300 nits. Lenovo will offer the machine with 8 GB or 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, along with multiple PCIe storage options ranging from 256 GB to 1 TB.
The Yoga Slim 7i also has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a third USB Type-C port and dual 2 W speakers. There is a Windows Hello IR camera for biometric authentication, too. The Yoga Slim 7i weighs 1.23 kg and is 14.9 mm at its thickest point. Lenovo claims that the device can last up to 16 hours on a single charge, but it is yet to confirm its battery capacity. The Yoga Slim 7i will arrive in November like the Yoga Slim 7i Pro but at €999, rather than the €899 that Lenovo will charge for the Slim 7i Pro.
Additionally, Lenovo has also unveiled the Yoga 7i, which is available with either a 14-inch or 15.6-inch screen. Both panels have 16:9 aspect ratios and operate natively at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Only the 15.6-inch panel is DisplayHDR 400 and Dolby Vision certified though, meaning that it can reach 400 nits.
The 15.6-inch edition also weighs 1.83 kg, making it around 430 g heavier than the 14-inch version. All SKUs come with a 71 Wh battery though and a choice of 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM. The device can be configured with 256 GB to 1 TB of storage, too. Also, Lenovo has included a webcam privacy shutter and a fingerprint sensor among other features. The Yoga 7i will launch in November too. The 14-inch model will start at €999, while the 15.6-inch version will cost €100 more at €1,099.
