Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro (14″, 2022) – Top 5 Pros and Cons
Lenovo offers so many notebook brands, each with its separate iterations and sub-brands. Today we have the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro. Despite carrying the Yoga name, it’s a standard clamshell device, oriented towards professionals and creators. Even the Ryzen 6000H-series CPUs that it carries is called “Creator edition”.
It’s not a very affordable product, however, with the lack of discrete graphics, it’s still less expensive than models with one, while still packing a decent amount of GPU power, thanks to the RDNA 2 integrated graphics, which offer native ray tracing and a good increase in GPU performance when compared to the previous Vega units.
Today we present you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro (14″, 2022).
4 reasons to BUY the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro (14″, 2022)
1. Design and build quality
The laptop has a fully aluminum chassis, which has incredible durability. The lid opens easily with one hand while remaining rigid and flex-free. The base is quite tough as well, considering the thin profile. Speaking of thickness, the laptop stays true to its Slim name, measuring just 14.9 mm, while weighing only 1.39 kg. The design is minimalist, with sharp edges and rounded corners. Branding is kept on the low as well, with only a small Lenovo logo on the bottom corner.
2. Battery life
With a 61Wh battery pack, the laptop offers 18 hours of Web browsing, or 12 hours and 35 minutes of video playback. This is with the 45W H-series processors, which is amazing evidence of AMD’s efficiency. Now, we conduct the battery tests with the Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with.
3. Display quality
The Pro part of the notebook includes a fantastic 2.2K IPS panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It reaches 328 nits of brightness and has a pretty high contrast ratio of 1570:1. It covers 96% of the sRGB gamut while offering fantastic accuracy when our Design and Gaming profile is applied.
Here are the test results with the stock settings (left) and with our profiled applied (right). With a dE value of 1.3, you’d be able to handle professional color work with no problem.

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.
Design and Gaming
This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.
Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

1 reason NOT to buy the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro (14″, 2022)
While the laptop is fantastic, it suffers from poor upgradeability, but you should get used to that with smaller devices. You can get up to 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, but we want to see more, so it’s up to Lenovo to figure it out and offer higher memory configurations. In terms of storage, there’s one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for Gen 4 drives.
