Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 16ACH6 (82QQ0035EN)
The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 16ACH6 (82QQ0035EN) is for those looking for a versatile, high-definition performance laptop in a comfortable, relatively thin and light multimedia-oriented form factor.
Demanding users will be delighted by the overall power provided by this model. For it is built around an AMD Cezanne Ryzen 7 58600H Octo Core processor and 16GB of RAM.
This core will be of great interest to creators. Because it guarantees faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core processor and 8GB DDR4. The difference is particularly noticeable in CPU– and RAM-intensive areas that take advantage of the multi-core, such as video editing or photo editing.
No graphics acceleration for multimedia processing here, however, since this PC is not equipped with a dedicated graphics card. So gamers will also have to pass, unless they are content with playing light games. And are willing to make concessions like lowering the screen resolution. Because 2.5K requires more graphic calculations than Full HD, which leads to a lower fps number.
Watching High Definition photos and videos is of course possible on this laptop which benefits from a fluidity and reactivity clearly reinforced by its SSD storage compared to a hard disk.
In addition to being silent, more energy efficient and more resistant to shocks, an SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive.
In concrete terms, thanks to the SSD, processing is much faster, for example, as are software launches and start/stop operations.
In addition, here we find an SSD with a large capacity of 1TB, which is able to accommodate multiple files and software, including personal creations.
Finally, when pushed hard (e.g.: processing), expect this mobile computer to heat up and make itself heard. As for autonomy, expect about 7 hours of operation on battery in light use.
If necessary to contain temperatures, a ventilated stand can be used in addition (remember to check the dimensions!).

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 16ACH6 (82QQ0035EN) chassis, connections, screen
It sports a sleek and elegant look with its relatively thin and light Storm Grey aluminum design.

As the webcam is equipped with infrared technology for facial recognition, you can authenticate yourself biometrically using Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, of course, which is useful for better visibility in low-light environments.
High Definition content lovers will appreciate that the screen is equipped with a 2.5K definition superior to Full HD. It is coupled here with a 16/10th format higher than the classic 16/9th, which is for example more comfortable for office work and surfing the Internet.
The screen also has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology here sRGB which implies more faithful colors than average.
As the screen is touch-sensitive, you can interact with the system and the software by simply applying at least one finger to it, and this by pressure/gestures. But you can’t open the PC 360° to turn it into a tablet. Moreover, the touch screen is shiny, which makes the screen prone to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors), but gives the colors some punch.
