Bringing in Windows 11

Lenovo is set to launch Windows 11 with a pair of premium AMD Ryzen-based laptops

The IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon will feature a carbon lid and aluminium body to go with a 14-inch OLED screen. Besides the infinite contrast an OLED provides, Lenovo will use a fast 90Hz, 2880x1800 panel with an aspect ratio of 16:10 on the Slim 7 Carbon. That's just over five megapixels with a density of 243 pixels-per-inch.

Inside the Slim 7 Carbon, you'll find an 8-core Ryzen 7 5800U with an optional Nvidia GeForce MX450 GPU. Lenovo will offer up to 16GB of power efficient LPDDR4X RAM and up to a 1TB PCIe SSD.

If 14 inches is not enough, Lenovo unveiled a new IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro which features a 16:10 aspect ratio screen. The IPS panel has 500 nits, and it's rated for 100 percent of the sRGB spectrum with an option for a 120Hz refresh rate version.

It has an 8-core Ryzen 7 5800H, up to 16GB of DDR4, a 1TB PCIe SSD, and up to a GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop graphics chip.

Compared to the Slim 7 Carbon, you should expect the CPU to run faster thanks to the additional thermal headroom of the H-class Ryzen chip.

The GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU is based on Nvidia's newest "Ampere" GPU cores instead of the older "Turing" GPU the GeForce MX450 uses in the Slim 7 Carbon. That upgrade translates to far better gaming performance, hardware ray tracing support, and the inclusion of Nvidia hardware encoding and decoding means you can play with most video software on the road.
