Low weight has not been the focus of the Lenovo Yoga series so far. The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon offers a welcome change - it proves that Lenovo should use particularly light materials like carbon more often.

Carbon-fiber plastic is a material that has been used in laptops for decades. However, the expensive composite material has never really made a breakthrough. In recent years, however, laptops with aluminum cases have gained considerable popularity. This is especially true for the consumer market.

Lenovo also jumped on the aluminum train. The last generations of the Lenovo Yoga series, Lenovo's highest-end laptop series for consumers, consistently relied on aluminum. Just so we don't misunderstand each other: Aluminum is a good material for laptops that has many advantages such as a high-quality feel. However, it also has disadvantages - compared to the more rarely used magnesium as well as the even rarer carbon-fiber plastic, it's significantly heavier.

Therefore, it's no wonder that low weight was not a priority for Lenovo's Yoga laptops. The fact that it's by no means a bad idea to shift focus to this topic is demonstrated by the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon.

As the name suggests, the Lenovo laptop relies on carbon-fiber plastic. However, not exclusively, since aluminum and magnesium are also used. Combined, this proves to be an extremely light yet sturdy solution in our detailed review.

The Lenovo Yoga Carbon also proves that a laptop made of carbon fiber doesn't have to be extremely expensive: The configuration that we tested can currently be purchased for 1,100 Euros (~$1,290) on Amazon's store for Germany. Since it's not officially available in the United States yet, you'll have to keep an eye out for when the Lenovo Yoga Carbon pops up on Lenovo's online store or on Amazon's US store.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
