Lenovo Unveils Featherweight and Sturdy Yoga Slim 7i Carbon Laptop
Lenovo just announced the launch of the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, designed for always-on-the-go entrepreneurs and millennials.
Incredibly Light and Astoundingly Strong
The latest addition to the Yoga family is an elegantly crafted, yet sturdy, device. It fuses smarter computing with design and mobility. Weighing from just 966g, the 13.3-inch laptop sports a 16:10 display and has a sleek profile from just 14.25mm.
Under the eye-catching Moon White carbon-fiber cover lies a machine subjected to Lenovo’s strict in-house reliability test and nine military-grade tests for durability, meeting MIL-STD-810G standards. It can withstand a variety of knocks and bumps with a dust-resistant and extreme temperature-resistant, drop-tested structure that can make it through everyday wear and tear.
