It’s slim but it can pack a punch
Under the hood, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) is powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900 HS Creator Edition Processor, which delivers lightning-fast performance and smooth multitasking capabilities. The laptop also comes with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, which provides ample storage space for your files on the go. Use of any external storage devices or even a NAS is still advisable for those who want to use this as a full time workhorse. As it only has an RTX 3050 Studio edition, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) is not built for heavy duty gaming but rather for creators, including designers, and editors. The 14-inch QHD display offers stunning visuals and vibrant colors and works amazing for when you’re working on a project, streaming videos, or just even browsing the web. Going back to its workstation performance, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) did net some good scores during synthetic benchmark runs and did great as well on simulated Blender renders.
Still being the gamers that we are we still took the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) for a quick gaming run. Needless to say gaming on 4K and even 1080p on the highest settings with our list of AAA games might not be its thing. Still we think that with a few graphic tweaks, this laptop can still drive for some non-intense gaming. I mean, hey, even creators need a gaming break sometimes.
Back to the creator space and other quirks.
Gaming performance aside, there is more to love in the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7). In terms of connectivity, the Slim 7 Pro X has everything you need, including Thunderbolt ports, USB-C ports, HDMI, and a headphone jack. The laptop also comes with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, ensuring you have fast and reliable internet and connectivity options. It’s great portability also means that you can bring this laptop pretty much anywhere and since it’s one of it’s powered via USB-C you can pretty much run this laptop using a power bank to extend its run time.
Still, just like any other device, while it is great the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) is not perfect. Going back to power, the laptop’s battery can only run for up to 6 hours on use meaning that you’d really need to have a power source ready if you’re looking at a whole day usage. The screen, even though it looks crisp and clear and has great viewing angles just isn’t bright enough if in case you find yourself working in very bright environments such as out in the sun or maybe your office or WFH desk just happens to be on the sun-facing window. At its price point one could also argue that there are other options that are well rounded, meaning they are built both for work and gaming purposes with even better gaming performance but then again, it’s also hard to compete against the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7)’s portability compared to the other ones in the same price range.
Still even with its quirks, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) is an excellent laptop that offers top-of-the-line performance, stunning visuals, and an impressive array of features. So if you’re in the market for a high-end, portable laptop that can handle demanding tasks with ease, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (14”, Gen7) is definitely worth considering. Don’t bother getting a macbook, get this one instead.
And yes, this one gets our Glorious Gold award.
