In terms of hardware, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is Intel Evo certified and sports a 13.3-inch QHD non-touch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, an Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU with Iris Xe graphics, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 1TB SSD and a 50Wh battery with 65W USB-C charging.

Lenovo Yoga 9i
The Lenovo Yoga 9i is a 14-inch convertible with touch capable displays and a 360-degree hinge that comes with an authentic black leather cover bonded to an aluminium chassis with a 20-step bonding process to ensure a seamless melding of metal and leather. The laptop also comes with an optional aluminium mica cover.
Aesthetics aside, the Yoga 9i is issued with either an Intel Core i6-1135G7 or 17-1185G7 processor, up to 16GB DDR4 3,200MHz RAM, up to a 1TB SSD, either a 14-inch Full HD or a 14-inch UHD touch display, Iris Xe graphics and a 65W USB charger depending on how deep your pockets go.
The leather clad variant weighs about 1.44kg, is 15.3mm thick and is available on the Lenovo Malaysia online store while the mica variant is more mainstream, weighs 1.37kg, 14.7mm thick and can be acquired at offline Lenovo stores and authorised retailers.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i
As its nomenclature would suggest the Yoga Slim 9i is a slimmer, sleeker version of the stock Yoga 9i. It also has the same genuine leather bonded top lid for a touch of style but where it differs is that rather than a touch capable display and a 360-degree rotating hinge, it’s primarily a standard laptop form factor with a touch display.
The chassis is slimmer and lighter at 13.9mm thin and 1.29kg in weight while packing an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 1TB SSD and a 14-inch UHD touch display along with Intel Iris Xe graphics. Another variant of the Yoga Slim 9i exists with a 15-inch display, 10th Gen Intel Core i9 HK-series processor as well as an NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti with Max-Q graphics card.
Yoga 6 AMD
The 13.3-inch Yoga 6 AMD is a convertible with a rotating hinge and a chassis clad in soft-touch fabric for a unique look.
