Lenovo has unveiled a whole bunch of new thin and light laptops set to launch this summer, including the 2.14 pound Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon with a 13.3 inch display and 28-watt Intel Alder Lake-P processor, the Lenovo Slim 7 Pro X and Slim 7i Pro X notebooks with 14.5 inch, 3072 x 1920 pixel 120 Hz displays and a choice of Intel or AMD processor options, and the new Lenovo Slim 9i, which is an Intel-powered 14 inch notebook with up to a 4K OLED display.

The first of these new notebooks should begin shipping later this month, but most will hit the streets in June, 2022.

Lenovo Slim 7i Pro X

Lenovo’s Slim 9i laptop has the highest starting price, at $1799. But it’s got premium specs and design to go along with that premium price point. Among other things, this model has an aluminum alloy body, quad speakers, three Thunderbolt 4 ports, and support for up to an Intel Core i7-1280P processor. But it’s probably the OLED display that does the most to drive up the price.

The Slim 7 Pro X and Slim 7i Pro X laptops are intriguing for their unusual display size and resolution. The Intel model starts at $1699 and supports up to a Core i7-12700H processor with optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics, while the AMD version starts at $1499 and supports up to a Ryzen 9 6900HS processor with Radeon integrated graphics.

Lenovo’s ultralight Slim 7i Carbon has a 13.3 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel 90 Hz display, support for up to a Core i7-1260P processor, and Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics. It has a carbon-reinforced magnesium alloy chassis to keep the weight down, but it also has the smallest battery of Lenovo’s new Slim series laptops, at just 50 Wh. Price will start at $1299 when this model goes on sale in June.

The Lenovo Slim 7i 14″ laptop is a 2.9 pound notebook coming in May for $1199 and up, with an aluminum body, Intel Alder Lake P and Alder Lake H processor options, and optional support for one of NVIDIA’s entry-level mobile graphics solutions. This is the only laptop of the bunch that even comes with the option of a 60 Hz display, but it’s available with up to a 120 Hz IPS LCD display or a 90 Hz OLED screen.

Lenovo will also offer an AMD version of the Slim 7i in some markets, where it will be sold as the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro. And there are also a few new 16 inch models coming to the Lenovo Slim family this summer.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for Lenovo’s new Slim laptops with 14.5 inch or smaller displays.
