If you’re looking for a laptop that is lightweight, durable and powerful enough to handle light tasks without sacrificing battery life (especially with the demands of working from home), then Lenovo has you covered with the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon. Yes, its name might be a mouthful, but it is packed with pretty awesome features you’re definitely going to be interested in.
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon makes use of carbon fibre in the construction of its lid. Not only does it reduce the overall weight of the laptop by 40%, but it also increases the laptop’s durability and rigidity as well. The laptop comes in a moon-white finish, which makes it absolutely stunning. It will also stay stunning due to its anti-fingerprint coating, even on extended periods of use. The laptop is also certified with the MIL-STD-810G rating, which means that the laptop is strong and made to last.
Overall, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will look great and professional regardless of your destination.
Since most of us are working from home due to the pandemic, we only drop by our office once or twice a week at most, depending on what you do. But even if you’re just bringing the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon with you from room to room, you will definitely appreciate how light this laptop is; it weighs under one kilogram, which is really mind-blowing especially when you pick it up the first time. Coupled with its 13.3-inch display, this laptop is both light and compact. Finding a bag that you can put the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon into won’t be a problem at all.
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s display is quite the stunner. It’s a 13.3-inch display, as mentioned earlier, with a Quad-HD resolution of 2560 x 1600 in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Simply put: it’s downright great. Viewing any form of media is a bliss; text on websites appears clean and sharp when viewing it with the laptop’s display. Lenovo also took eye care into consideration with this laptop as it is TÜV Rheinland-certified. Blue light from the laptop’s screen is significantly lowered to protect your eyes when using it for long periods of time.
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s performance can be summarised as pretty much “packed to the brim” for an ultra-portable laptop. It is powered by the Intel Evo platform and can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB PCIe SSD hard drive. That Intel Core-17 can pretty much handle any task and maybe a bit of gaming thanks to the Intel Iris Xe Graphics inside. 16GB of RAM will be plenty for all your Google Chrome tabs and half a terabyte of fast-speed storage is more than enough for most people.
If that isn’t enough for you, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon also supports USB-C Thunderbolt 4. This makes it possible for you to plug in an external graphics solution if you want a better gaming experience or additional SSDs for extra storage.
The laptop also comes with support for Wi-Fi 6, which makes for really fast gigabit speeds.
5. Battery Life
The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s battery life is great. Lenovo claimed that the laptop has up to 15 hours of battery life, though we would say that a more regular mixed usage will result in an actual battery life that’s closer to about 10 hours. Having 10 hours of battery life for a laptop like this is not bad at all.
Should you need to plug the laptop in, Lenovo’s rapid-charge boost can provide you with two hours of usage in just 15 minutes. Even if you have forgotten to bring the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon’s charger with you when leaving, you’ll be just fine more likely than not.
If you’re looking for a laptop that’s extremely lightweight with all the performance to handle all the light tasks you need and more, take a look at the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon; this might interest you.
