I know I that I haven’t done any unboxings and first impressions lately, haha, I’m sorry about that! But! I was able to try out the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon for a few weeks!
Here’s what you get out of the box, what’s included in the package, the specs, and my honest experience with the laptop! Thanks to the Lenovo fam for letting me try out this awesome device. 🙂
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon – Specs & Pricing
Before we get started with the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon unboxing and run-through of features, take a look at its official specs below:
- CPU: Up to AMD Ryzen® 7 5800U, with Lenovo AI Chip
- GPU: AMD Radeon™ graphics, configurable with NVIDIA® GeForce® MX450
- OS: Windows 11
- Memory: Up to 16GB DDR4

- Dimensions: 321 x 223 x 14.9mm / 1.1 kg
- Color: Cloud Grey
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon price starts at Php 81,995. And you can likely get it at any of the Lenovo stores, authorized dealers, and ecommerce platforms nationwide.
Given that this is an older model, and Lenovo did come out with new Lenovo Yoga laptops recently, I suggest checking stocks first as they may have been sold out or phased out by some stores or sellers. 🙂
Yoga Slim 7 Carbon – Packaging & Features
To be quite honest, unboxing the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon is quite simple and straightforward. As someone who is used to opening up the packaging of flashy gaming laptops, this was a refreshing experience.
The material of the laptop’s box is very sturdy, and feels quite premium. I especially liked the textured cover, it’s not everyday that I see (and feel) this kind of packaging! 🙂
Though there aren’t many extra items included in the box, you feel kinda business-y and no-nonsense when you take the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon home. XD
Like I said, unboxing the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon was very straightforward and simple. Just pull up the box cover and voila! There’s the laptop, and below it is a compartment where the charger plug and cables are located. XD
The package that was sent to me had a USB-C adapter included, but I haven’t read anything if this really does come with all purchases, though, HAHA!
I gotta warn you though that the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon does NOT come with any USB-A ports anymore, which was incredibly surprising for me!
I’m pretty sure this is the future, and we’re likely to see this trend be picked up by most tech brands soon. BUT as someone whose gadgets are mostly still driven by USB-A cables, this took some getting used to.
So, I’m pretty glad the package Lenovo sent me had the USB-C adapter or I would’ve had a hard time with this article. HAHAHAHA. /dies
Incredibly Light And Sturdy
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon boasts that it is the “world’s lightest 14″ OLED laptop.” At 1.1kg, it feels like it weighs practically nothing. I do have a daily driver that also has a 14″ display but that definitely weighs heavier than this laptop!
It is also soooo incredibly thin! It’s just 14.9mm! Carrying it around while I was working in various spots at home was effortless, and for once, moving around with a laptop did not feel like a chore, haha!
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon is reinforced with carbon fibre for military grade durability. So even though it feels incredibly lightweight and easy to bring around, the chassis material does not feel flimsy at all!
Great For Entertainment On-The-Go
What I liked the most about the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon is the amazing quality of its 14″ QHD+ OLED display. Watching shows and movies on Netflix are a joy, no matter where I am in the house, because the colors and images are really sharp and crisp. The screen’s bezels are also very narrow at 3.9mm on three sides, which gives you really great views! 🙂
In terms of audio, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon definitely does not disappoint! Equipped with the Dolby Atmos ® speaker system, I especially liked the positioning of the two tweeters on both sides of the keyboard for that pseudo-surround sound experience.
Powerful Performance To Drive Daily Needs
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon comes packed with an 8-core AMD Ryzen® processor, and NVIDIA® GeForce® MX450 graphics card. Combined with the proprietary Lenovo AI chip for the best AI experiences, you get a laptop that can definitely carry you through your productivity or entertainment needs.
Working on daily tasks and moving through the Google Suite is smooth and hassle-free, especially when switching through more than a dozen tabs on Chrome in a single session, HAHAHA!
Having such a high-quality screen also makes it easy to edit the photos for my blog and other work tasks! 🙂
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon – First Impressions & Daily Experience
As someone who is more used to gaming laptops that have over-the-top specs, it didn’t seem fair to put the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon through the same motions of my standard gaming laptop reviews.
I used the laptop mostly for daily work tasks, and it really was quite fun carrying it around because of its light frame. The sturdy chassis didn’t make me feel worried about the laptop being too fragile, even though it was so thin and lightweight, HAHA!
The battery life wasn’t bad, too! I could say that I can go around 6-8 hours with a full charge, but that’s with a mix of work tasks, music listening, and video watching, hehe. XD
The laptop really shines when it comes to being used for entertainment! The high-quality screen plus the strategic speaker placement makes the experience so much more immersive. So I would definitely recommend this laptop for those who spend hours on Netfix, YouTube, and even Twitch! 🙂
HAHA, I couldn’t resist though so I did try out V Rising on the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon. There were some issues with heating and performance, but I guess it’s because I didn’t really tweak the settings. SO. Maybe, you can play lighter games that don’t stress out the hardware too much on this laptop. HAHAHAHAHA. XD
I think if you’re someone who wants an ultra lightweight laptop that’s great for also watching movies and shows, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon is a great choice. It is powerful enough to make work seamless, and it has both visual and audio features that give such a great entertainment experience.
