After announcing the skinny and lightweight Yoga Slim 7i Carbon last year, Lenovo updates its Yoga Slim 7 Carbon lineup with AMD Ryzen Processors and an OLED display option. While it looks identical to its Intel counterpart, the OLED display option on the Lenovo Leads in Launching Windows 11 on New Yoga Laptops makes it the lightest laptop to come with an OLED panel at 2.37 pounds and 14.9mm thin.
The Yoga Slim 7 Carbon makes use of a 14-inch Samsung OLED panel with a QHD+ resolution, support for Dolby Vision, DisplayHDR TrueBlack 500, 90hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. While its rivals (like the ZenBook 14X) offer a 4K OLED panel, it is fairly impressive to see an OLED display on a skinny and light laptop–for reference, the ZenBook 14X OLED weighs at around 3.09 pounds. Even more impressive is that this lightweight laptop comes with Gorilla Glass protection for the display and a chassis that is made from carbon fiber and magnesium alloy.
Powering the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon is up to a Ryzen 7-5800U processor with an optional MX450 discrete GPU, up to 16GB LPDDR4X RAM, and up to 1TB PCIe M.2 SSD storage. Keeping the lights on is a 61wHr battery, and Lenovo claims that the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon can last for up to 14.5 hours on a single charge. It also comes with Lenovo’s Rapid Charge Express, where a 15-minute top-up can give you up to 3 hours of use.
Aside from the changes in the processor and display, Lenovo said that the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon will be among its first few laptops to come with Windows 11 out of the box.
The Yoga Slim 7 Carbon will be available starting October in the US.
