Lenovo expands its catalog of notebooks aimed at professionals and presents the new ultra-light Windows 11 series devices on the Italian market Yoga Slim. The announcement, which follows that of last September, does not stop only with products equipped with Windows but also includes the latest innovations in the IdeaPad line, optimized for work, study, and classic office applications. But let’s go in order, here are the latest proposals from Lenovo in detail:
YOGA SLIM 7I PRO AND YOGA SLIM 7 PRO 16
Let’s start with the top of the class, the new Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro (14 “), also available in one 16 “Yoga 7 Slim Pro variant with AMD Ryzen 5000 processor. Yoga Slim 7i Pro is distinguished by the 14-inch OLED display, a 2.8K panel (2880x1800p) with 16:10 format, and a 90Hz refresh rate; the device marries the Intel EVO platform (we talked about it HERE) and uses Core 11th, gen processors, with integrated Xe graphics or, alternatively, a GeForce MX450.
The operating system is Windows 11, as well as on the Lenovo Yoga Slim Pro 16 which, in addition to the panel 120Hz QHD IPS (550 nits) stands out for its powerful processor Ryzen 7 5800H and GPU up to GeForce RTX 3050. It goes without saying that this model looks more towards pure performance, offering 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 1TB PCI-E SSD, and 75 WHr battery with Rapid Charge Boost.
As for the purely “physical” characteristics, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro has a chassis of only 17.4mm e weighs 2.1kg; the notebook is available in Cloud Gray and Storm Gray colors.
YOGA DUET 7I
With Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i let’s move on to the world of convertible notebooks with detachable keyboards, designed to be versatile – in terms of form-factor – and always connected. With his 1.16 Kg (with case), Yoga Duet 7i is a featherweight that, in addition to supporting tablet mode, comes bundled with the Lenovo E-Color Pen. Also, in this case, the company relies on Intel Core 11th gen CPU, combined with DDR4 RAM (up to 16GB), 1TB PCI-E SSD, and autonomy that, according to Lenovo, reaches 10.8 hours.
On the connectivity side, onboard we find WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and LTE, while regarding the display, the manufacturer opts for a 13 “IPS panel with 2K resolution and brightness at 550 nits.
IDEAPAD 5I PRO AND IDEAPAD 5 PRO
The line Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro instead, is aimed more generically at those users who are looking for a versatile, robust, and with good performance notebook, capable of managing all the applications we carry out on a daily basis. Again the manufacturer proposes two variants, one Intel and one AMD, available in turn with a 14 or 16-inch display.
Equipped with metal chassis and available in Could Gray and Storm Gray, the two IdeaPad Pro models share many of the technical features: from the 16:10 IPS panel – 90/100% sRGB – with resolution up to 2.8K (14 “), passing to WiFi 6 connectivity and the audio department with Dolby Atmos.
Equipped with Intel Core 11th gen or Ryzen 5000 processors, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro is equipped with an IR webcam with Windows Hello and supports intelligent Cooling Mode to take advantage of the energy balance thanks to artificial intelligence, all obviously with different customization options. The 14 “model weighs 1.45 kg while the one with a 16” display reaches 2 kg.
IDEAPAD 5I CHROMEBOOK 15 AND IDEAPAD FLEX 5I CHROMEBOOK
The series Lenovo IdeaPad 5 also goes for Chromebooks with IdeaPad 5i And IdeaPad Flex 5i, both based on Chrome OS with Intel Core 11th gen processors and aimed at hybrid work environments. IdeaPad 5i Chromebook uses a 14.6 “FHD display touchscreen and has stereo speakers with Waves MaxxAudio integrated amplifier; on board we find a Core i5 CPU, 512GB SSD, and WiFi 6 connectivity, the declared autonomy instead reaches 10 hours.
IdeaPad Flex 5i Chromebook is instead a 2-in-1 convertible 1.35 kg with 360 ° rotatable IPS FHD touch display, ideal for those who work or study on the go and often need to operate in tablet mode. The hardware configuration essentially resumes that of the IdeaPad 5i Chromebook, offering 11th gen Intel Core i5 CPU, autonomy up to 10 hours, and stereo speaker with Waves MaxxAudio amplifier; IdeaPad Flex 5i is available in two colors, Abyss Blue and Iron Gray.
