The Lenovo Slim 7i is a thin and light laptop that weighs just 2.88 pounds and measures less than 0.6 inches thick. But it’s packed to the gills with features including support for up to an Intel Core i7-1360P processor and up to a 14 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel IPS LCD touchscreen display with a 120 Hz refresh rate.
First unveiled in January, the Lenovo Slim 7i is now available for purchase from Lenovo.com.
At the moment there are only two configurations available:
- Lenovo Slim 7i with Core i5-1340P/16GB/1TB for $1180
- Lenovo Slim 7i with Core i7-1360P/16GB/512GB for $1602
Both models have the same 2880 x 1800 pixel, 120 Hz touchscreen display. But it’s likely that more options will be available in the future.
When Lenovo first introduced the laptop, the company said it would have a $730 starting price and that entry-level models would feature 12th-gen Intel Core chips rather than 13th-gen, have as little as 8GB of RAM, and come with other display options including non-touch 2240 x 1400 pixel IPS LCD or 1920 x 1200 pixel OLED screens.
All versions of the laptop have two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, and HDMI 2.1 port plus a 3.5mm audio jack, support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, a 65 Wh battery, 65W USB-C charger, and a full HD webcam with an IR camera for face recognition and a privacy shutter.

I don’t like the Lenovo price tag at all. You will probably end up throwing it out 3 years from the purchase.
Why companies don’t sell long lasting products? Planned obsolescence
