Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14IHU5 (82NC00FMFR)
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14IHU5 (82NC00FMFR) is a compact multipurpose notebook oriented multimedia.
The autonomy represents an undeniable asset of this versatile Ultrabook. Because it is established around 10 hours of operation on battery in light use.
It is all the more appreciable that this light, compact and thin multipurpose computer is easy to carry.
It relies on a Quad Core i5-11320H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor and 16GB of RAM to provide good overall performance for a wide range of users.
On the other hand, gamers and more generally those who wish to carry out work requiring graphic resources will pass their way.
This laptop does not come with a dedicated graphics card.
Nevertheless, it is possible to watch photos and videos, but also to play modest games if you agree to some settings. And in particular to a reduction of the screen definition since the 2.8K requires more graphic calculations than the Full HD, which leads to a lower number of fps.
On the storage side, we find an SSD that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better reactivity and fluidity on a daily basis than a hard disk.
Thus, thanks to the SSD, start/stop operations are much faster, as are the processing and launching of applications, and you can get to the online game maps more quickly.
Of course, if 512 GB is too small, you can rely on an external storage device such as a USB 3.0/Thunderbolt/USB-C to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, expect some heating and noise when this versatile laptop is heavily pushed (e.g. processing).
If needed to contain temperatures, a ventilated stand can be used (remember to check the dimensions!).

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14IHU5 (82NC00FMFR) chassis, connectivity, screen
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14IHU5 has a sober and elegant appearance with its Light Silver aluminum design, thin and light.
This versatile Ultrabook has a good connectivity composed of 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 USB-C maximum usually), wireless Wi-Fi ax (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 modules for connections and remote communications, a headset/microphone combo audio port but also 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged in.
The lack of HDMI video output will upset some, but you can use a USB to HDMI adapter or USB-C to HDMI adapter to get there.
As an infrared webcam is integrated, we can authenticate biometrically by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The screen is provided with a practical backlighting solution for the keys to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.
Thanks to its 2.8K definition superior to Full HD, the screen lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content while its 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th. Designers will be even more delighted that the screen adopts IPS and sRGB specifications, which means that the vertical and horizontal viewing angles are large and the color reproduction is more faithful than average. Moreover, the screen adopts a frequency of 90Hz which improves the overall fluidity as well as a brilliant treatment which gives punch to the colors but induces a sensitivity to the reflections in luminous environment (ex: outside).
