PC-maker Lenovo is teasing its Holiday Consumer Lineup laptops for this upcoming holiday season. Under the Yoga brand, the company revealed the Yoga 9i 2-in-1 convertible laptop and ultraportable Yoga Slim 9i. Under the Legion gaming brand, however, is the Legion Slim 7i with Max-Q Design GPU. If you haven’t picked up the hint yet, these three powerful machines are all about being slim. With that in mind, let’s check the features and specs of each.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i and Yoga 9i 2-in-1
Made for creators, Lenovo Yoga 9i packs up to 10th-gen Intel Core i9 HK CPUs with graphics based on the Intel X architecture that benefits photos, video, and motion graphics workloads. The top model can include up to Nvidia GTX 1650Ti with Max-Q Design for maximum performance. The 14″ display can go up to 4K UFD resolution with VESA HDR400 + Dolby Vision certification. The WVA provides a comfortable 500nits with 90% DCI-P3 color accuracy. As for the memory, the RAM goes up to 16GB LPDDR4X, with storage of up to 1TB SSD PCIe.
Outside the spec sheet, the Yoga 9i boasts a metal body clad that comes in Mica color. A Shadow Black variant is available with an authentic leather cover. The overall build weighs no less than 1.35kg with a thickness between 15.3 – 16.4mm. Thanks to the rotating hinge featuring Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos, you can expect this machine to work much like a tablet — complete with pen support. As for the connectivity and ports, Yoga 9i features the next-gen Wi-Fi 6 modem, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, headphone/mic combo, and two USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 with Thunderbolt 4, DisplayPort, and power delivery support.
For the Yoga 9i 2-in-1 convertible, you’re looking at the same 14″ panel size and optional authentic leather cover. Though the Mica is available in 14″ model, the Slate Grey comes in 15″. Spec-wise, you can expect the same innards as the Yoga Slim 9i. You may even find the non-convertible with more interesting features, such as Smart Sense Keyboard that automatically adjust the backlighting according to the ambient light conditions.
Legion Slim 7i
For gamers out there, Lenovo is redefining the thin and light category with the Legion Slim 7i. For starters, the 15.6″ display comes in two variants — [email protected] display for 100% color accuracy and [email protected] for the fast screen experience. At the core is up to 10th-gen Intel Core HK CPUs with an option of up to Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q design with DLSS 2.0 technology. Extending the battery life during light workloads is Advanced Optimus technology that allows for the onboard GPU and dedicated GPU to switch between tasks. For a gaming laptop, you still get Lenovo staples like the fingerprint reader and privacy shutter. And thanks to the TrueStrike Keyboard, the switch feels more like mechanical. As for the build of the Legion Slim 7i, the Slate Gray variant has a starting weight of 1.8kgs, with a thickness of 17.9mm.
While we can expect the three devices to be out in the Philippines in a few months, the company remained quiet about the official SRPs.
