Lenovo has just revealed its latest addition to the Yoga family, an ultra-light device that weighs under 1kg at just 966g. According to Lenovo, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon laptop’s featherlight weight and sleek 14.25mm-profile is designed for those who are always on the go, from business leaders and entrepreneurs to millennials alike.
In addition to its convenience and portability, the 13.3-inch Yoga Slim 7i boasts a military-grade standard for durability. Beneath its new carbon-fibre cover, the Yoga Slim 7i has been subjected to Lenovo’s famed strict in-house reliability test and meets nine military-grade tests for durability, fulfilling MIL-STD-810G standards. As a result, the Yoga Slim 7i can be expected to withstand a variety of knocks and bumps, with a dust-resistant, extreme temperature resistant, and drop-tested structure to boot – a feat previously reserved only for its ThinkPad range.
Battery life is also a major strength of the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, paired together with fast charging capabilities. The device’s 50Wh battery is promised to power users through 15 hours of video playback, or up to 13 hours of all-day office productivity. Meanwhile, the Rapid Charge Boost feature has Lenovo assuring that 15 minutes of charging will provide two hours of use on the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon.
The device is powered by the latest 11th Generation Intel Core processors, coupled with accelerated graphics performance with Intel Iris Xe graphics. It offers two Thunderbolt 4 ports for speedy transfers and charging, and comes with other specs that you would expect from a premium laptop currently: WiFi 6, AI-powered attention-sensing software, Amazon Alexa, and Lenovo’s Thermal System 4.0.
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will be made available in Malaysia at a starting price of RM4,399, although the official release date has yet to be confirmed. It is advertised to be available in a single colour, Moon White – another unique first in Lenovo’s lineup.
