The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon 13IAP7 (82U90048FR) against the competition
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon 13IAP7 (82U90048FR) is currently showing in promotion at Lenovo France and positions itself as one of the lightest in its class where it is also one of the only ones to offer such a high definition screen with such faithful colors with such a recent processor and Thunderbolt 4 connectors.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon 13IAP7 (82U90048FR)
Robust with its compliance with the military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H, this versatile laptop with carbon fiber shell and magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis has a discreet and elegant look with its Onyx Gray design.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is minimalist, including 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4 as well as Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac).
There is no standard USB or audio port or HDMI video output. However, you can always go through an adapter if necessary. USB-C to USB, USB-C to audio Where USB-C to HDMI.
As an infrared webcam is integrated, you can authenticate yourself biometrically by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit of course, which is practical for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen will appeal to lovers of High Definition content because it adopts a 2.5K definition superior to Full HD, here coupled with a 16/10th format more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th.
In addition, thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen displays more faithful colors than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
In addition, the screen adopts a frequency of 90Hz, higher than the 60Hz standard, which improves fluidity, as well as an anti-reflective treatment making it more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon 13IAP7 (82U90048FR)
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon 13IAP7 (82U90048FR) can appeal to those who wish to acquire a very light compact laptop PC for general purpose nomadic use.
It is very easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its weight under the kilo bar. On the autonomy side, pending more concrete tests, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
In any case, the general performance provided by this thin and light laptop is able to suit many users. Because it is built around 16 GB of RAM and an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i5-1240P processor, which is certainly low power, but whose TDP 28W higher than the 15W standard guarantees better performance but less autonomy with a similar configuration.
This core can in any case be suitable for modest multimedia work taking advantage of RAM and multicore and therefore of the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P, for example in photo editing or video conversion.
However, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or an adequate dedicated graphics card if you plan to often perform processing that consumes processor and/or graphics resources. .
Logically with regard to the finesse of the chassis and the lightness, this Ultrabook does not carry a dedicated graphics card. It therefore does not target gamers and those who want to do heavy graphics work.
Nevertheless, you can look at photos and videos but also indulge in modest games with this laptop if you make adjustments to obtain good fluidity. We think of a decrease in the definition of the screen since the 2.5K requires more calculations from the GPU than the Full HD, which implies a lower number of fps.
In terms of storage, Lenovo has chosen a silent SSD while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we obtain much faster processing, start / stop and launch of applications than with a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
The SSD in fact guarantees overall much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / Thunderbolt / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
