Lenovo’s Yoga line changed up the branding a bit for this year’s refresh, and the mid-range convertible is now called the Yoga 7i. It’s packing the latest 11th Gen Intel Core CPUs for excellent performance both in raw processing and integrated Iris Xe graphics, plus it’s still all housed in a well-built aluminum chassis. Normally $900 if you’re paying regular price, Best Buy has knocked $150 off ahead of Black Friday. That brings the total price down to just $750.
Lenovo’s 14-inch Yoga 7i is a relatively thin and light laptop that has a beautiful aluminum chassis. It measures just 0.7 inches thin and weighs in at 3.08 pounds, making it a great choice if you’re always on the move. It’s a convertible, meaning you can rotate the lid around for tent, stand, and tablet modes when you’re not maximizing productivity in notebook mode. The touch display has a 1920×1080 resolution, and it’s compatible with an active pen for Windows Ink.
Performance hardware is rather impressive, with the new 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 being the centerpiece. Along with 12GB of RAM and integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, you should have no problems handling standard productivity work, including photo editing. And a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD offers speedy storage for all your files.
Rounding out the features are a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello, webcam shutter for extra privacy, and top-firing speakers that flank the comfortable keyboard. The laptop includes a couple of Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB-A port, and a 3.5mm jack, plus it has Wi-Fi 6 for future-proof wireless connectivity.
