Lenovo Yoga 7i notebook: the 2 in 1 with firepower

by Janes

It even seems like a rule: every big brand of PCs has at least one model of notebook 2 in 1 (which turns into tablet). Yoga 7i is there to prove that Lenovo is no different. However, the screen with 360 degree aperture is just a detail. The equipment also stands out for offering “premium experience”.

In the version tested by Tecnoblog, this experience is provided by hardware with core i7 chip of 11th generation and 8 GB of RAM, plus 14-inch screen with full HD resolution and WVA LCD technology.

But how does the laptop behave on a day-to-day life? Is the performance good? Does the battery have decent battery life? Is the screen a strong point? I tested Lenovo Yoga 7i for two weeks and tell you what I found out about it from now on.

Our analyses are not intended to be advertising, so they highlight the positive and negative points of each product. No company has paid, reviewed or had early access to this content.

The first detail that caught my attention in the design of Yoga 7i is the fact that the model is very similar to the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5i, another 2-in-1 model (convertible) that recently went through Tecnoblog.

But the differences between the two soon become evident. For starters, Yoga 7i has an aluminum body, while in Flex 5i, plastic predominates. Theoretically, metal makes yoga 7i more robust and, of course, conveys a well-finished product feel.


Robustness is also noticeable on the hinges of the screen, which are wider than those of the Flex 5i. They are also firm, feature that requires you to make a little effort to fully open the screen. On the other hand, the component does not go down alone easily, even when you balance the notebook.

But Yoga 7i has one important disadvantage: the reduced amount of connections. On the right side, the laptop brings only a USB 3.2 type A (conventional) port. There we also find the power button.


The left side is home to the connection for headphones and microphones, as well as two USB-C ports. That’s all. It’s not uncommon for ultra-thin notebooks like this to have a reduced number of ports, but at least one HDMI connection the Lenovo Yoga 7i should have.

At least the USB-C ports are compatible with USB4 and Thunderbolt 4. Interestingly, Lenovo signals that only one of them recharges the equipment (the product comes with a USB-C charger), but in the tests, the charger worked with both.



Unlike most notebooks, the Yoga 7i has audio outputs positioned next to the keyboard, not at the bottom. This detail makes the sound more immersive.

To top it off, the speakers have clear audio and Dolby Atmos, plus a high volume that barely distorts at the maximum level. You can even notice some details that we usually only notice with headphones.
