Powerful subnotebook from Lenovo - Yoga Slim 7i Pro X
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X could almost be described as a jack of all trades. It combines many qualities that are mutually exclusive in other laptops: it's compact and yet powerful, offers a good screen and superior build quality. It also has good battery runtimes.
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X is an excellent laptop without a lot of frills. It combines a powerful processor with plenty of RAM, a good graphics card and a slim aluminum case. You do not have to do without a good screen here either. Although the IPS panel does not quite cover 100% of the sRGB color space, it impresses with a color-accurate display.
Overall, the slim ultrabook impresses with its performance capabilities. The Intel Core i7-12700H shows its strengths in all benchmarks. Only in heavy gaming laptops does the processor otherwise deliver more performance. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 runs the notebook on 50 watts throughout, depending on the performance mode and performance requirements. The smaller version of this graphics chip is therefore pushed to peak performance here.
Lenovo also packs a 70 Wh battery into the small case, which allows the laptop to get by for a few hours without a power supply despite the powerful processor. We measured seven hours and 14 minutes in our Wi-Fi web surfing test. So the ultrabook does not quite have the battery stamina needed for a full workday, but it can still be relatively mobile.
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X is an attractive subnotebook and hardly offers any points of criticism in our review, although the manufacturer is somewhat economical with the connectivity. Another USB port and a card reader would have been desirable here.
From an early age I liked to thoroughly examine all kinds of devices to see how they worked, which also involved taking my own devices apart and therefore not always to the delight of my parents. Nevertheless, with my grandfather’s support, I became a computer and electronics tinkerer. With the family PC and Lego Mindstorms, my interested in software and programming took off, and I am currently an engineering program student. I enjoy building all sorts of gadgets with Arduino and 3D printers, and I still like to put electronic devices through their paces. By joining the Notebookcheck editorial team, I have been able to turn my hobby into a profession.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
