Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) review

What we learned from the past couple of years is that people like small form-factor notebooks that have a reasonable amount of power. With the help of NVIDIA’s absurdly big variety of power targets for their GPUs, you can see laptops like the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″), which can be equipped with the RTX 3050 (55W).

However, we were more surprised to see the CPUs of choice. You see, Intel has brought incredibly powerful 28W processors with its Alder Lake architecture. However, Lenovo was having none of that, as it chose the almighty Core i5-12500H and Core i7-12700H.

This means that Lenovo surely has to do some kind of wizardry on the cooling front. But of course, this machine is not made for gaming. Its NVIDIA Studio drivers are a good testimonial for that. So, who is it meant for? Well, obviously – content creators. Its display has a 16:10 aspect ratio and comes with a rather weird resolution of 3072 x 1920. It features a 120Hz refresh rate and optional touchscreen support.

Let’s not spoil everything in the introduction, though. We are going to take the laptop out of its box, show you some pictures of it, and start with the testing.

#CommissionsEarned

What’s in the box?

You are going to experience a typical box-in-a-box situation here. The 100W USB Type-C charger is separated from the laptop and the paperwork.


Design and construction

So, Lenovo has made one of its most resilient laptops in the fact of the Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″). It appears as a true MacBook challenger with its all-aluminum chassis, which is almost fully resistant to flex. Sporting rounded edges on both the lid and the base, it definitely looks and feels premium.

This machine has a profile of 15.9mm and weighs 1.45 kg. Considering the hardware it houses, this is as thin and light as it can get. By the way, it would be interesting to put it side by side with the Apple MacBook Pro 14.

As expected, the lid can be opened with a single hand. The hinges are smooth and stable, which means you won’t see the display rocking back and forth when you bump into your desk.

The display not only goes all the way down to 180°, but it also has super thin bezels around it. Somehow, Lenovo managed to squeeze a 1080p shooter with an IR face recognition scanner and a Time-of-Flight sensor. It lacks a dedicated privacy shutter, but there is an electronic one, operated via a toggle switch on the right side of the base.

Speaking of the base, it is home to the backlit keyboard. It is a pretty decent unit with average key travel and clicky feedback. The “Up” and “Down” Arrow keys are too small, but the rest of the keyboard is pretty comfortable for work. You will find a speaker on either flank of the unit. Front-firing speakers are better, right?

What we want to say about the touchpad is what every man wants to hear – it could not have been bigger. Furthermore, it has a smooth glass surface and a comfortable click mechanism. However, the higher you go the harder it gets to press it.

This leaves us at the bottom panel, where we find only the ventilation grill. Apparently, there are two fans inside the laptop, as there are two vents on the back of the base.

Ports

On the left side of the device, you will find an HDMI 2.0 connector, as well as two Thunderbolt 4 ports, either of which can be used for charging. Switch sides, and you will see the power button, a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) port, an Audio jack, and the E-camera shutter switch we mentioned before.


Disassembly, upgrade options, and maintenance

There are only 5 Torx-head screws keeping this laptop’s bottom panel in place. We were surprised that there are no hidden ones. After you undo them, pry the panel with a plastic tool, starting from the hinge gaps.

Inside, we find a 70Wh battery pack. It lasts for 9 hours of Web browsing, or 7 hours of video playback. To remove it, you need to unplug the battery connector and undo all 5 Phillips-head screws that keep it attached to the chassis.

The memory here is soldered to the motherboard. You get configurations of up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, working at 6000MHz. As for the storage, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot, which works with Gen 4 SSDs.

Cooling-wise, there are two heat pipes, shared between the CPU and the GPU. In addition, both the graphics memory and the VRMs are equipped with heat spreaders.


Display quality

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) uses a 120Hz IPS panel, model number BOE NE145F8M-N61 (BOEAA8). Its diagonal is 14.5″ (36.8 cm), and the resolution – 3072 x 1920p. Additionally, the screen ratio is 16:10, the pixel density – 250 ppi, and their pitch – 0.1 x 0.1 mm. The screen can be considered Retina when viewed from at least 36 cm (from this distance, the average human eye can’t see the individual pixels).

Viewing angles are comfortable. We have provided images at 45 degrees to evaluate quality.

Also, a video with locked focus and exposure.

The maximum measured brightness is 415 nits (cd/m2) in the middle of the screen and 394 nits (cd/m2) average across the surface with a maximum deviation of 12%. The Correlated Color Temperature on a white screen and at maximum brightness is 6760K (average) – slightly colder than the 6500K optimum for sRGB.
In the illustration below you can see how the display performs from a uniformity perspective. The illustration below shows how matters are for operational brightness levels (approximately 140 nits) – in this particular case at 63% Brightness (White level = 139 cd/m2, Black level = 0.08 cd/m2).
Values of dE2000 over 4.0 should not occur, and this parameter is one of the first you should check if you intend to use the laptop for color-sensitive work (a maximum tolerance of 2.0 ). The contrast ratio is very good – 1720:1.

To make sure we are on the same page, we would like to give you a little introduction to the sRGB color gamut and the Adobe RGB. To start, there’s the CIE 1976 Uniform Chromaticity Diagram that represents the visible specter of colors by the human eye, giving you a better perception of the color gamut coverage and the color accuracy.

Inside the black triangle, you will see the standard color gamut (sRGB) that is being used by millions of people on HDTV and on the web. As for Adobe RGB, this is used in professional cameras, monitors, etc for printing. Basically, colors inside the black triangle are used by everyone and this is the essential part of the color quality and color accuracy of a mainstream notebook.

Still, we’ve included other color spaces like the famous DCI-P3 standard used by movie studios, as well as the digital UHD Rec.2020 standard. Rec.2020, however, is still a thing of the future and it’s difficult for today’s displays to cover that well. We’ve also included the so-called Michael Pointer gamut, or Pointer’s gamut, which represents the colors that naturally occur around us every day.

The yellow dotted line shows the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″)’s color gamut coverage.

Its display covers 94% of the sRGB/ITU-R BT.709 (web/HDTV standard) in CIE1976.

Our “Design and Gaming” profile delivers optimal color temperature (6500K) at 140 cd/m2 luminance and sRGB gamma mode.

We tested the accuracy of the display with 24 commonly used colors like light and dark human skin, blue sky, green grass, orange, etc. You can check out the results in factory condition and also, with the “Design and Gaming” profile.

Below you can compare the scores of Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) with the default settings (left), and with the “Gaming and Web design” profile (right).

The next figure shows how well the display is able to reproduce really dark parts of an image, which is essential when watching movies or playing games in low ambient light.

The left side of the image represents the display with stock settings, while the right one is with the “Gaming and Web Design” profile activated. On the horizontal axis, you will find the grayscale, and on the vertical axis – the luminance of the display. On the two graphs below you can easily check for yourself how your display handles the darkest nuances but keep in mind that this also depends on the settings of your current display, the calibration, the viewing angle, and the surrounding light conditions.

Response time (Gaming capabilities)

We test the reaction time of the pixels with the usual “black-to-white” and “white-to-black” method from 10% to 90% and vice versa.

We recorded Fall Time + Rise Time = 23 ms.

After that, we test the reaction time of the pixels with the usual “Gray-to-Gray” method from 50% White to 80% White and vice versa between 10% and 90% of the amplitude.


Health impact – PWM / Blue Light

PWM (Screen flickering)

Pulse-width modulation (PWM) is an easy way to control monitor brightness. When you lower the brightness, the light intensity of the backlight is not lowered, but instead turned off and on by the electronics with a frequency indistinguishable to the human eye. In these light impulses, the light/no-light time ratio varies, while brightness remains unchanged, which is harmful to your eyes. You can read more about that in our dedicated article on PWM.

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″)’s backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment. This makes it comfortable for long periods of use.

Blue light emissions

Installing our Health-Guard profile not only eliminates PWM but also reduces the harmful Blue Light emissions while keeping the colors of the screen perceptually accurate. If you’re not familiar with Blue light, the TL;DR version is – emissions that negatively affect your eyes, skin, and your whole body. You can find more information about that in our dedicated article on Blue Light.

Gloss level measurement

Glossy-coated displays are sometimes inconvenient in high ambient light conditions. We show the level of reflection on the screen for the respective laptop when the display is turned off and the measurement angle is 60° (in this case, the result is 49.9 GU).


Buy our profiles

Since our profiles are tailored for each individual display model, this article and its respective profile package are meant for Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) configurations with 14.5″ BOE NE145F8M-N61 (BOEAA8) (3072 x 1920) IPS.

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

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

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.

🛠️ GPU Modifications: vBIOS, Overclocking, Undervolting
⚙️ Building Fast/Reliable RAID configuration
💻 Hardware upgrade tips for best results
🖼 Display enhancing
💾 OS Optimization for best performance

✖ But if these optimizations are easy, why don’t manufacturers do them?

There are a lot of reasons for the manufacturers to put boundaries on your machine, locking part of its performance:

📊 Market Segmentation: To create different product tiers, manufacturers often limit performance. This allows them to target various market segments and price points, encouraging consumers to pay more for higher-performing models.
❓Unknown Potential: Each unit’s performance varies. Checking each one individually isn’t feasible.
🏢 Regulatory Compliance: Certain regions have regulations regarding energy consumption, and manufacturers often place some boundaries to fit all standards.
🏭 Supply Chain Constraints: Limitations are imposed due to the current availability of components.
🫰 Cost-effective solutions: Often, less popular but important details are overlooked. For example, better RAM types can boost performance by up to 30%, but many users ignore this, and many online stores don’t even provide that info.
🔒 Security concerns: Many protections impact performance while being negligible for regular users. However, manufacturers don’t know if their laptops will be purchased by individuals or large corporations, so they can’t disable these features by default.

This is the first (and probably the only) time we saw P-core clocks lower than 1.00 GHz. Weirdly, the results during the synthetic benchmarks were significantly more stable than the clocks posted while stressing the Core i7-12700H with Prime95. It probably has something to do with the power management, because the temperatures stay low too. Keep in mind that the laptop only comes with a 100W USB Type-C charger, and it has to also power an RTX 3050.

Speaking of which, the GPU performed significantly better, matching the 55W TGP target. On the other hand, it was quite warm during the entire test.

Gaming comfort

The downside of having an all-metal device is that it carries the heat throughout its entire surface. This makes the whole laptop warm during gaming sessions or extreme workloads. Also, the Extreme Performance preset pushes the fans, which is good for thermals, but not great for noise comfort. It’s worth saying that it is still quieter than similarly-specced gaming laptops.


Verdict

Lenovo is really close to cracking the code here. The Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) has the potential to be the biggest contender to the MacBook Pro 14. To say the least – it beats it with one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for Gen 4 SSDs. Also, it has a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) port beside the HDMI 2.0 connector, and the two Thunderbolt 4 ports. Unfortunately, the laptop doesn’t have an SD card reader, which is a bummer. How about its performance, though?

Well, the results were kind of a mixed bag. The actual synthetic benchmarks showed good scores in both 2D and 3D rendering, however, the Prime95 stress test brought the Core i7-12700H to its knees pretty quickly. And this means the Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″) is not very reliable for the manipulation of large 3D objects.

On the other hand, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (14″)’s IPS panel is really sharp thanks to its high resolution – 3072 x 1920p. It comes with a 16:10 aspect ratio, comfortable viewing angles, and a very good contrast ratio. Furthermore, it covers 94% of the sRGB gamut, which ensures a vibrant image output. Pair the panel with our Gaming and Web design profile, and you will get a very accurate color representation.

Also, its front-firing speakers are above average in the Windows world but lack greatly behind those of the 14-inch MacBook. Typically, Lenovo laptops have brilliant keyboards. And while the one inside this device is not bad, it is far off its business cousins.

Oh yes, and the memory is soldered to the motherboard. As a result, you won’t be able to upgrade it down the line, so you have to make the smart choice. Will 16GB be enough for you, or you should go all in for the 32GB version? Usually, when the RAM is nonupgradeable, we advise getting the largest possible amount that makes sense for you. However, at this point we are getting into ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402 territory – A device, that comes with significantly better cooling, which lets it use its hardware more efficiently.

But if you are looking for something classy, with rounded corners, a 120Hz high-res display, a Full HD Web camera, and an IR face recognition scanner, then the Yoga Slim 7i Pro X is one of the most powerful laptops you can get.

Hey, if mine came only with Xe Graphics, is it possible for someone who knows what he is doing, to upgrade it to 3050?
