  • what's with these laptops using ryzen but only 1 ram stick?

  • Why is the 4700U/4800U and 16GB RAM variations not on the lenovo store site? I don't get it.

  • nice screen at this price point.

  • This config is $1209 on the Lenovo Education Store if you have access.

  • I have the R7-4800/16GB/512GB and enjoying it.

    I also have the Ideapad Slim 14 (R5-4500/8GB/512GB) and Ideapad S540 13.3 (R7-4800/16GB/512GB) in the house…

    Screen - The S540 wins hands down. Not much difference (if any?) with with Slim14, other than that was matt and this is gloss. 300 nits is a low estimate, this feels bring and cheerful in most light conditions (average use is around 60 to 80% screen brightness).

    Build Quality - Yoga7 for sure. the Slim14 has a plastic lid (that feels fantastic for plastic, but notably different to this)

    Keyboards - Yoga 7 - Just pips out the Slim 14 and pips the S540 as it has a little more travel. The S540 does have a better backlight system (two stage brightness option).

    Processor - For day to day, the R5-4500u does well. This feels faster than any other laptop I've used (HP x360, Dell XPS range, etc)… But the R7-4800U has been playable for any game I have thrown at it so far (PUBG, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Trine 4, CS:GO are all above 30fps on low (but not lowest) graphics. Most were around 45fbs average, with some dips in certain areas).

    • Have you done a gaming comparison between the Slim 7 and the S540 at 1080p to determine if 4266 LPDDR4X gives much of boost vs 3200 DDR4 for the 4800U?

      • Not yet. The S540 is busy finishing off a few assignments before exams.
        (although I have seen some sneaky Witcher 3 played on it… No hard stats, but I would say it was above 30fps. I have no idea what she res/settings she used)

        I'm hoping to jump on it soon and test it a bit more.

    • Which one would you recommend out of the Yoga slim 7 and Ideapad S540? which one has also the best trackpad?

  • This looks exactly like the Lenovo 5 I bought that suffered 2 major faults within 3 months but rebranded as yoga lol

  • Worth mentioning: i tested the 4800u version at Harvey Norman. The screen is vivid and has good contrast but has some weird graininess that is visible. Even though it is "glossy". Go figure…

  • Is this better value than the Lenovo IdeaPad S540 13" AMD Ryzen 5?
    (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/566097)

    This has a bigger battery from what i can see but the CPU is less cores.
    The QHD isn't significant imo for that size display.

    • Yes the S540 13" is better value at the moment with better screen and CPU. The only advantages of the Yoga Slim 7 regarding this deal is that is has more ports and bigger battery. The S540 13' is also has more configuration settings in BIOS regarding what TDP it should run at. As far as I am aware, this is not available in the Yoga Slim 7 unless you use a hacked BIOS. The S540 13" also has better cooling, so CPU will be able to boost for longer without throttling.

  • I have been informed by Lenovo that they expect to get the 4700u/16gb model in late November.
