Lenovo has revealed a couple of new Yoga Slim laptops that will be shipped with Windows 11 alongside a new gaming monitor during their latest live stream so let’s get into them.
Starting off the list is the new Yoga Slim 7 Carbon made for an active lifestyle. Combining excellent craftsmanship and powerful components, the machine features an astounding 14-inch 16:10 2.8K OLED panel running at 90Hz and certified with Dolby Vision, VESA DisplayHDR TrueBlack 500, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and color accuracy of Delta E < 2 while the computing parts consists of up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U CPU with an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU coupled up to 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 1TB PCIe storage for a blazing fast and snappy experience. Looking from the outside, the entire chassis is made from ultra-portable carbon and magnesium alloy for superior durability while staying light and thin, placing the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon as the lightest laptop within its category across the industry. Lastly, Windows 11 will come pre-installed in the machine so you can get the brand new Microsoft OS experience immediately, supported by other things like WiFi 6, Windows Hello, Lenovo Smart Assists, Alexa, and more.
If you need to go deeper into the rabbit hole then the Yoga Slim 7 Pro takes a lot of what Yoga Slim 7 Carbon offers and amp it up a notch. Sporting a large 16-inch 16:10 QHD 2.5K IPS panel with 120Hz refresh rate, the display covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut and is capable of pushing out details thanks to Dolby Vision and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. This machine also provides greater horsepower with up to AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and up to 1TB PCIe storage to readily tackle all sorts of tasks you throw at it, not to mention it is also great for gaming thanks to the high refresh display but you can take it around for anything since it is still designed to be stealthy and professional.
For the gaming displays, Lenovo revealed 2 models which are the G27e-20 (27-inch) and G24e-20 (23.8-inch) ideal for gamers, students, and young professionals seeking quality and competitive monitors at an affordable price. To be fair, in order to stay within a budget price, both models utilize VA panels to achieve a good balance between visual fidelity, refresh rate, and response time at 120Hz (overclocked) and 1ms MPRT. Resolution-wise, a standard 1080p is given both sizes while providing decent color accuracy at 95% sRGB color gamut.
