Here are two ultraportable notebooks that Lenovo will be releasing just in time for this holiday season. Let's start with the more compact notebook of the two, the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon.

The Yoga Slim 7 Carbon has a magnesium alloy chassis reinforced with carbon fibre. As a result, it's extremely strong and light. Weight is a mere 1.1kg and maximum thickness is 14.9mm.

It has a 14-inch display with the option for an OLED panel with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels. This OLED panel supports Dolby Vision HDR and 100% of the DCI-P3 colour space. It also has a fast 90Hz refresh rate.

Inside, the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon will be powered by AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors. The entry-level model gets a Ryzen 5 5600U processor while the higher-end model gets a Ryzen 7 5800U. 

Maximum memory is 16GB and the Yoga Slim 7 Carbon can be equipped with up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage.

As for ports, the notebook gets a single USB-C USB 3.2 Gen 1 port and two USB-C USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports. Sadly, there's no support for Thunderbolt 3 or 4.

The larger of the two, the Yoga Slim 7 Pro weighs 2.1kg and has a maximum thickness of 19.9mm. 

It has a 16-inch display with a resolution 2560 x 1600 pixels. It supports 100% of the sRGB colour space and has a high 120Hz that will be handy for gaming.

Speaking of gaming, that's something that this notebook can do because it's powered by AMD's Ryzen 5000 series processors and comes with discrete graphics in the form of either the GeForce GTX 1650 or GeForce RTX 3050. It won't deliver earth-shattering performance but it's good enough for casual and not so fussy gamers.

One strong suit of this notebook is its connectivity. It might not have Thunderbolt ports, but it has three USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, and an SD card reader. 

It has a relatively large 75WHr battery that Lenovo claims can offer up to 16.5 hours of video playback.


Availability and pricing

Lenovo hasn't announced specific availability and pricing details, except to say that these notebooks will be available this holiday season. We will update this article once we hear more from them.
