New Slim clamshell laptop models were announced today by Lenovo in the US as part of the company’s spring refresh of laptops (which share the “Slim” name with older, unrelated products). The Slim 9i, the Slim 7i, the Slim 7i Pro X, the Slim 7i Carbon, and the Slim 7 are just a few examples. AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors power the final of the trio, while a slim 9i model claims to be carbon-neutral. Even if the new range doesn’t offer major increases in performance, longevity, or screen quality, it does have a few notable advantages.
There are three Thunderbolt 4 connectors and three WiFi 6 ports on the Lenovo Slim 9i, a 14-inch laptop with WiFi 6. If you’re concerned about the environment, this might be a good option for you. OLED Puresight touchscreen displays are available as an option for the display, which is sure to improve visuals and immersion in gaming. With the IdeaPad’s infrared webcam, it can recognize faces. It also has Intel Core i7 processors, which are 12th generation. In the US, the laptop will be available in June for a starting price of $1,799 ($1,799 with tax).
There are two 14-inch laptops, the Slim 7i Pro X and Slim 7 Pro X, both of which include 12-generation Intel Core CPUs. Up to 32 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU are included in the package. Both devices weigh just 3.5 pounds, which is quite low for a computer with a dedicated graphics card. Starting at $1,699 for the 7i Pro X and $1,499 for the 7 Pro X, respectively,
The Slim 7 has a 16-inch screen, an AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processor, and a starting price of $1,499. The 14- or 16-inch Slim 7i is powered by 12th-generation Intel Core CPUs. It starts at $1,199 and goes up to $1,599, depending on the configuration.
Lenovo’s 13-inch 2.2-pound Slim 7i Carbon may be a good option for individuals looking for a light laptop that also doesn’t weigh down their carry-on bag. The carbon frame reduces weight, as the name suggests. It has self-adjusting fan and power speeds to save battery life and Intel Core CPUs from the 12th generation. As a 13-inch laptop or as an updated model with a 13.3-inch Lenovo Puresight touchscreen, the 7i Carbon is available. As of June, it will be offered in the United States for a starting price of $1,299.
Starting in June, Lenovo will be launching its Smart Lock program in North America for people who are concerned about losing or stealing their laptops while on the go. Mobile apps and web browsers are also part of the cloud-based security program that lets customers track and find their computers, as well as lock or wipe their data.
