Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro Review

With a satirical edge and undertones of technology, gadgets and accessories, I aim to make my writing both informative and entertaining.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro

The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is a 14-inch laptop, which means it's designed to be both slim and light. It's not the thinnest laptop on the market but it still qualifies as one of the most lightweight ones out there.

The build quality is excellent with metal used throughout the body and lid, along with plastic used for keys, palm rests and hinges. There are also four rubber feet on each side so you can place your device wherever you want without worrying about damaging anything below it (or yourself).

This laptop has two USB 3 Type-C ports (one at either end), two USB 3 Type A ports at top rear corner of keyboard area plus HDMI port near power button which allows users to connect external devices via HDMI cable rather than MicroUSB or USB Type-C cables depending upon what makes sense for their needs at any given time

Display

The screen is a 14-inch Full HD IPS panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It's bright, but not as bright as other laptops like the HP Spectre x360 15t or Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

The panel has an average color accuracy of 72% and it covers 91% of the sRGB color gamut, which means you'll be able to see more colors than on average displays—but don't expect miracles here either since this is still an office machine so it won't wow you with its colors or vibrancy compared to say, a gaming laptop. The display also has LED backlighting that offers 10-point touch capabilities (although they're not quite as strong as what we get on our MacBook Pro).

Design

The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is a thin and lightweight laptop with a premium look and feel. The laptop has a sleek design and a premium look.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is made of aluminum, carbon fiber, and plastic. It weighs just 2 pounds (1 kg) so you can take it anywhere easily without worrying about how heavy your laptop is going to be when you carry it around in your bag or backpack.

The body of this laptop has rounded edges on all sides except one side where there are sharp edges that give it an edgy look but also make sure they don't hurt your hands while typing or using the touchpad on this model's screen which comes with Windows Ink technology built right into it!

Screen

The screen on the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is an IPS display with 1920x1080 pixels and 178 degrees viewing angles. It's a 10-point multi-touch panel, which means you can pinch to zoom in with both hands while holding your tablet upright. This makes it easier to adjust text size and fine tune images by dragging your fingers across the screen instead of having to pick up the entire device.

Battery

The Lenovo IdeaPad 7 Pro has a battery life of around 7 hours, which is not bad. It's better than most laptops and it's not as good as some other laptops.

The IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro has a battery capacity of 75 watt-hours, which is below average for a 16-inch laptop. The MSI Summit E16 Flip has 82 watt-hours, while the MSI Creator Z16 has 90 watt-hours and the HP Spectre x360 16 has 83 watt-hours. As it turned out, the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro's battery life was adequate but not exceptional.

I would grade the battery life of the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro as solid. If you don't press the CPU too hard, you may get through the most of a workday unplugged, and the battery life is superior to that of many 16-inch competitors.

Performance

The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-8265U processor, which is as fast as many mid-range laptops on the market. It's also got 8GB of RAM and an impressive 256GB SSD for storage, so you should be able to do some heavy lifting without performance issues.

The graphics card in this laptop is an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 (2GB GDDR5), which isn't particularly powerful but does its job well enough that games like Fortnite won't be too demanding on your system—and if they are then there’s still plenty of power under the hood with all those cores cranking away at high speeds!

You can get Gigabit Ethernet connectivity through USB Type C ports on both ends of this laptop; there's also Bluetooth 4.2 LE capability here too so connecting with your phone or tablet should be a breeze when using Bluetooth headphones/earbuds like Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones II Wireless Headphones II Black w/Extra Charging Cable - Black + Red+Blue.

Processor and Hardware

The Ideapad 7 Pro has a number of features that make it stand out from other laptops. It's a great choice for anyone looking for an affordable, high-performance laptop with a few extra perks. You'll get the latest Intel processor in this model, which is powerful enough to handle most tasks but not too powerful that you have to worry about overheating your system or draining its battery too quickly.

The Ideapad 7 Pro comes with 16GB of RAM so you can open many programs at once without worrying about running out of memory space; 512GB SSD gives you plenty of room for storing your files and apps; 802.11ac WiFi keeps your connection fast while minimizing interference from other devices nearby; Bluetooth 5.0 allows you to connect wirelessly through any device supporting Bluetooth technology (like headphones or speakers) without having any wires between them; 1 x USB 3 Type C port allows for charging as well as transferring data quickly between computers connected via USB Type C cables; 2 x USB A ports are available if additional ports are needed!
