Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14ACH5 (82MS00DMFR) Against the Competition
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14ACH5 (82MS00DMFR) is currently available at Lenovo France And it offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its class as it’s one of the only companies to offer high-capacity SSD storage with a high-resolution display and locked colorimetry in such a lightweight chassis with such a powerful processor, all under Windows 11.
Chassis, Connectors, and Display Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14ACH5 (82MS00DMFR)
It has an elegant and discreet design in a slim and light aluminum frame in dark gray.
This multimedia laptop has good connectivity with its wireless USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi acFor remote connectivity and connectivity, a combo headphone/microphone audio port without forgetting USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 peripheral is connected to it.
However, we note that there is no HDMI video output, but it is of course possible to use a USB-C to HDMI adapter if necessary.
Anyway, some will appreciate the ability to authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello because the infrared webcam is built in.
The button keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen will be of particular interest to fans of (very) high-resolution content because it is decorated with a resolution of 2.2K that is superior to Full HD. As a bonus, it faithfully reproduces colors more than average while the horizontal and vertical viewing angles matter, thanks to its sRGB and IPS properties. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance and autonomy Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14ACH5 (82MS00DMFR)
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14ACH5 (82MS00DMFR) may interest those who want to equip themselves with a compact, efficient and portable HD laptop.
In terms of autonomy, it is already able to keep about 9 hours on battery in case of light use, which is very important as it is easy to transport thanks to its lightness, consistency and accuracy.
To do this, it relies on a particularly good capacity battery but also on SSD storage which is much more energy efficient than a hard drive. Other advantages of SSDs include their quiet operation, greater shock resistance, and faster speed.
Thanks to the latter, the SSD has a significant impact on the daily operation of the computer, which starts / stops much faster than the disk, while processing and running programs are much faster, for example.
In addition, here we make use of a 1 TB solid state drive, a large capacity that rivals what the vast majority of hard drives in the field offer.
Another element that allows to obtain good autonomy is the absence of a dedicated graphics card that consumes power. So players will go their way, except for those who indulge in light games from time to time. Graphics work is entirely responsible for the modest Radeon Vega 7 in-process solution.

This is not a low-power model but a Ryzen 5 5600H Cezanne AMD Hexa Core APU (Fast Processing Unit) which, combined with 16GB of RAM, delivers solid overall performance capable of satisfying maximum users.
Creators in particular will appreciate getting much faster processing with this core compared to a quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory, and the difference is especially noticeable in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources with multi-core use, such as video editing or photo retouching. .
Finally, it should be borne in mind that, at levels set for this type of computer, this multimedia laptop is heard and heated up when hard pressed (eg: treatments).
If necessary to contain temperatures, a well-ventilated brace (Remember to check the dimensions in this case!).
