Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon

Weighing just 966 grams, Lenovo announced the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon laptop in multiple markets. The notebook leverages Lenovo’s second-generation proprietary fiber material technology to reduce the weight, without taking a hit on durability.

When compared to a metal chassis, the new material is up to 40 percent lighter. And, a lighter notebook isn’t just portable but also lets the maker add more batteries for extended usage.

The battery is undoubtedly one of the prime unique selling points of the laptop and Lenovo claims it can deliver up to 15 hours of video playback on a single charge.

It sports a 50Wh battery that can deliver more than ten hours of moderate usage. And, the brand claims its Rapid Charge Boost technology can give two hours of use based on just 15 minutes of charging.

Unlike Apple’s Mac lineup, all other laptop makers provide a healthy dose of ports and this laptop is no exception. These include two Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, a standard Type-C port, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0.

A few proprietary features that ship along with the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon are Lenovo Smart Assist, Glance by Mirametrix, and Lenovo Q- Control.
