Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro Review: A Top 14 Inch Oled PC with AMD Raison 7 5800H

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro Review: A Top 14 Inch Oled PC with AMD Raison 7 5800H

Like the Yoga Slim 7, the Pro version also worked well. Its anodized aluminum frame feels solid and the screen’s 16:10 aspect ratio provides higher display height than the classic 16: 9, making it easy to use. In addition, the borders are very thin, which is always appreciated.

The design of the system is neat.

The touchpad is fluid, responsive, and does not sink under pressure. The keyboard is also successful. Typing is responsive and quiet. The backlight can be set to 4 levels, including an automatic that adjusts the ambient light. To disable the microphone, take screen shots or manage different desktops, there are some interesting shortcuts at the level of the function keys (F1 to F12).

The computer does not have a fingerprint reader, but is equipped with a webcam (720p) with infrared module, which allows you to quickly open with Windows Hello. For connectivity, Lenovo has reduced the possibilities by removing the USB-A port, HDMI port, and microSD card reader. Strange for a “Pro” model … but still has a USB-A port, two display ports compatible USB-C ports and of course a mini-jack. WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 are available for higher transfer rates.

The cooling system has proven to be very efficient. We noted about 38 degrees Celsius at the center of the keyboard and just 47 degrees Celsius at the level of the air vent. This good temperature management is fully functional in a game with a sound level of 38.8 dB, which is classic on this type of computer. The noise of the fans is audible, but bearable.

The PC heats up a bit.

By removing the 7 Torx screws and removing the chassis, we found a removable M.2 SSD, but unfortunately no accessible RAM module, which is disassembled on the motherboard.

Our model 1 TB SSD has a muscle structure with 16 GB RAM and today we are doing the tested chips. We usually find the H series on thicker PCs, mostly dedicated ones Sports This Yoga Slim 7 Pro is an exception.

Due to the lack of heating, the manufacturer has limited the DTP of this Raison 7 5800 H to 45 W. So its maximum frequencies are slightly restricted and it is not as efficient as the models Sports As Lenovo Legion 5 Pro Where Tel G15 5515, But slightly higher than the Raison 7 5800U commonly found on ultraportables.

Either way, the Yoga Slim 7 Pro can tackle any task from office automation to heavy video processing applications to photography. In gaming, the PC works well with an average of 38 fps Diablo iii (Graphics pushed to maximum) and at 58 fps Overwatch (Low quality). What to enjoy without problem, it is some games that do not need much.

OLED screen is the primary element of this computer. With a definition of 2880 x 1800 px and 16:10 format, it has serious arguments. It is updated at 90 Hz, which is a very rare rate on PCs, with the classic half located between 60 Hz and 120 Hz. Sports. So the display looks a bit smoother when scrolling a page, for example, improves reading comfort.

The edges of the screen are thin.

The results of our measurements are very good: color temperature of 6630 K (close to video standard, 6500 K), maximum brightness 391 cd / m², and of course infinite variation rate and luminosity after zero. However, the screen fails in two characteristics: the colors are not very accurate (Delta E 4.2) and, with most OLED panels, the average reflection is very large (50%). In practice, its brightness compensates for reflections in most situations, but you have to be careful of the light sources in front of the computer.

Finally, its best ranges offer a good screen aggression rate (82%).

At 1.4 kg in size, the Yoga Slim 7 Pro is not the lightest of the ultrabooks, but it is compact (312 x 221 x 15 mm). Its charger is designed to stand upright, so it takes up less space on a table. However, it is not as small as the block-shaped models.

During our video playback battery life test on Netflix, the keyboard backlight was turned off, the brightness was set to 200 cd / m², the headphones were plugged in at 50%, and the PC lasted 7 hours and 32 minutes. A good score in absolute terms, but below to deliver many Ultraportables. The high definition of the panel is undoubtedly responsible for this range, while computers equipped with conventional full HD (1080p) screens are at an advantage at this exact point.
