Lenovo Announces New Laptops For The Holiday Season
Lenovo has announced three new laptops as part of its holiday lineup.
The 14-inch leather-covered Yoga Slim 9i and the 14-inch Yoga 9i 2-in-1 convertible will come with next-gen Intel Core processors and Intel Xe graphics, with the exact models to be announced later. Both also feature 1080p to 4K auto-upscaling for video content.
The Yoga Slim 9i will apparently weigh 1.26kg, and offers a 3840 x 2160 VESA Display screen. It also comes with an up-to-90% DCI-P3 colour spectrum and 500 nits of brightness. Interestingly, it includes an electrical shutter switch to cut off power to its infrared camera for privacy purposes as well.
The Yoga 9i convertible has a leather-covered version of its own as an option. The leather version comes with a Glass Palm Rest, an encased Smart Sensor Touchpad to replicate vibrations, and a liquid-resistant Ultrasonic Fingerprint Reader.
There is also a 15-inch version of the Yoga 9i convertible with a GTX 1650 Ti. The 15-inch Yoga 9i convertible can pack up to a 10th gen Intel Core i9 HK-series model for its processor. In addition, it will feature up to 16GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage, along with discrete graphics and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Meanwhile, the Legion Slim 7i is a 15-inch laptop with an up to 10th gen Intel Core i9 HK-series mobile processor. It’s armed with an RTX 2060 and is Max-Q-configured. It’ll weigh 1.86 kg and can last for up to 7.75 hours.
Screen options include an up-to-4K IPS VESA DisplayHDR 400 with 100% Adobe RGB coverage, a 60Hz refresh rate, and 600 nits of brightness, and a Full HD IPS display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and a 100% sRGB colour gamut. The Legion Slim 7i can be fitted with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2TB of M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD storage.
You can also expect to see NVIDIA's Advanced Optimus tech, which lets the laptop determine whether to use the integrated or discrete graphics to extend battery life. In addition, there's the Max-Q Dynamic Boost tech that allows the laptop to dynamically shift power from the CPU to the GPU for stuff like gaming.
Other fancy stuff for the Legion Slim 7i include a webcam privacy shutter, a power button that has an in-built biometric fingerprint reader, and an air intake system that will apparently allow for over 100% more airflow towards the CPU and GPU than older generations.
The Yoga Slim 9i will have a starting price of €1899 (RM9,419~) and be available from November. The Yoga 9i convertible will start at €1799 (RM8,923~) for its leather-covered 14-inch model and €1999 (RM9,915~) for its 15-inch all-metal model, with both being available from October. Finally, the Legion Slim 7i will start at €1299 (RM6,443~) and will also be available from October. The prices of all but the Legion Slim 7i are inclusive of VAT.
