The new devices presented are not all available in the United States, with some of them exclusive to select overseas regions. The new Lenovo devices include the Slim 9i, Slim 7i Pro X, Slim 7 Pro X, Slim 7i Carbon, and the Yoga AIO 7. Here’s what the company sent out in its press release.
As a carbon-neutral-certified laptop, the Slim 9i (14”, 7),) is ideal for the eco-conscious without compromising on mobile luxury, premium entertainment features, and A.I.-powered performance. Encased in 3D glass, the comfort-edge design of the thin and light 14.9mm (0.59 in) chassis features rounded, smooth contours for a more comfortable handling and holding experience.
A union of mobility and performance, the Slim 9i also redefines the meaning of portable entertainment and content creation. It has a 14-inch 16:10 up-to-4K OLED PureSight touchscreen display, complemented with Sound by Bowers & Wilkins. Lenovo’s PureSight visual experience on the optional 4K OLED screen provides ultra-sharp detail and clarity and rich, photorealistic colors — from deep blacks to vibrant lights. With Vesa Certified Display HDR True Black 500, its depth of 10 bits can display over a billion colors in a single pixel and a full color gamut of 100 percent DCI-P. The Yoga Slim 9i’s four Bowers & Wilkins speakers bring audio to life.
The Slim 9i lets users tap into a mode of portable performance that adapts to them, powered by Intel Evo featuring 12th Gen Intel Core processors. Powering next-level smarter experiences, the Lenovo A.I. Core 2.0 delivers improved A.I.- enabled performance and smarter security, which includes hardware-level encryption engineered to help protect the device from root and ransomware attacks. And depending on the task at hand and the amount of system load, the A.I. engine can also dynamically adjust fan speed and hardware performance to optimize and accelerate performance.Lenovo
Slim 7i Pro X and Slim 7 Pro X
Providing the sheer power to create from anywhere, the Lenovo Slim 7i Pro X (14”, 7), and the Lenovo Slim 7 Pro X, deliver the raw performance for users to realize their ambitions. They feature up to next-gen processors, up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU with NVIDIA Studio validation, and Lenovo’s X Power that takes thermal design power to the next level. Lenovo’s X Power offers specific tuning for different usage scenarios to push the laptop beyond the benchmarks of maximum CPU and GPU performance. At less than 1.6kg (3.5 lbs), these thin and light machines are built to go virtually anywhere, while packing the pure performance needed for digital content creation.
Watch the latest show on the 14.5-inch 3K 120Hz refresh Lenovo PureSight display with optional touch, featuring an accurate color palette and richer hues. It has a hardware calibrated 100 percent sRGB gamut coverage with 100 percent sRGB gamut volume, as well as TÜV Hardware Blue Light certification to help reduce eye strain. And with the Lenovo A.I.

Slim 7i Carbon
For those who embrace hybrid living and the freedom to get things done from their living room to the office, the Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon (13”, 7), offers amazing mobile performance, matching its extraordinary lightness of under 1kg (2.2 lbs) and a chassis as thin as 14.8mm (0.58 in) at its thinnest point, with the rugged resilience of aerospace-grade magnesium alloy reinforced with multi-layer carbon fiber. Its comfort-edge design is built for ease of carrying.

Yoga 7 (not available in the U.S.)
Crafted for entertainment and creativity, the new Lenovo Yoga 7 (14”, 7) (not sold in NA), is a versatile 2-in-1 multi-mode convertible laptop that also features a comfort-edge design for an easier hold and carry experience. With powerful AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors, this entertainment powerhouse packs an up-to-2.8K OLED touchscreen 16:10 display, featuring Dolby Vision for true-to-life color, richer detail, and hardware-based low blue light, as well as Dolby Atmos enveloping spatial audio over four speakers.

Yoga AIO 7 (not available in the U.S.)
Inspired by the many ways in which people are now creating, working, and entertaining at home, the new Yoga AIO 7 (27”, 7) (not sold in NA), is incredibly adaptive. With a 27-inch 4K IPS narrow-bezel display and 95 percent DCI-P, the Yoga AIO 7 effortlessly rotates 90 degrees, lifts up, and tilts for more viewing angles – just with the gentle push of a hand or finger via its flexible hinge design.
This new Yoga all-in-one desktop computer is made to be at the center of a modern home. And it has the power to match – with AMD Ryzen 6000 Series Processor and optional AMD Radeon RX 6600M graphics featuring the ground-breaking AMD RDNA 2 architecture. It also doubles as a robust home entertainment system, with dual JBL 5W speakers that minimizes distortion through a unique Lenovo passive radiator design, while taking up a smaller base footprint than its previous generation to give back more desk space.
One of the Yoga AIO 7’s best features is enabling sharing and collaboration. Users can now wirelessly cast their smartphone’s screen 8to the desktop monitor to watch videos, scroll through photos, or browse social media on a massive 27-inch display – rotated horizontally or vertically. And while working or binging videos on a laptop, 9one can also augment the audio and screen size by plugging it into the Yoga AIO 7’s full-function Type-C port – letting the user assume control of both devices with a keyboard and mouse, all the while keeping the device charged.Lenovo
