...it's no surprise to see the sleek Yoga Slim 7 tear up the benchmarks against similar-sized machines.
AMD launched the Ryzen Mobile 4000-series chips with much gusto at the turn of the year. For reasons that are obvious, it has taken a while for laptop manufacturers to adopt the technology across their Ultrabook and gaming ranges.
Now available in multiple configurations, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 has been worth the wait. Outfitted with a Ryzen 7 4800U chip boasting eight cores, 16 threads and an established Vega GPU, Lenovo and AMD fundamentally redefine performance in the thin-and-light segment.
With CPU numbers analogous to big and heavy laptops housing far thirstier chips it's no surprise to see the sleek Yoga Slim 7 tear up the benchmarks against similar-sized machines. Lenovo has managed to marry superb performance with day-long battery life, which is an impressive feat in every light.
Our only gripe on an otherwise excellent package is with the lack of a touchscreen or high-resolution screen option for these AMD models. If you can accept the 14in FHD screen for what it is, this is one performance-packed laptop that breaks neither the bank nor your back. Recommended.
