Yoga 7i 15

Lenovo is unveiling five new laptops and convertibles today from its Yoga 6 and Yoga 7 lineups (previously 640 and 740, respectively). On the clamshell side, there's the Intel-powered Yoga Slim 7i, Yoga Slim 7i Pro, and Yoga Slim 7 Pro. For convertibles, we've got the Yoga 7i and the Yoga 6. Anything with an 'i' suffix comes with an Intel processor, while the standard names have AMD chips.

One new feature on the 7 series is Lenovo Smart Assist, which powers on your PC when you lift the lid, the idea being a more hands-free experience logging into your PC. You can also get Privacy Alerts when someone is looking over your shoulder, thanks to Glance by Mirametrix. These laptops also come with Amazon Alexa for a voice assistant experience.
