Lenovo’s first ThinkPad and Yoga laptops with Snapdragon processors

Lenovo has joined Microsoft and Qualcomm in their relentless efforts to push Arm-powered Windows computers into the mainstream. The Yoga Slim 7x and ThinkPad T14s Gen 6 are the company’s entry-level models from its consumer and business lines, respectively.

During a Lenovo presentation, our video team had the opportunity to use both of these laptops. See what they thought of it at first in the video below!

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 6

Since I enjoy ThinkPads and am writing this post, I will begin with the ThinkPad. It should come as no surprise that this model can blend in with other Lenovo designs, despite significant internal improvements. The T series is a mainstay for businesses and anyone who likes decent keyboards and the iconic Trackpoint (the red mouse nub thing). Its typical clamshell form, understated branding, and Lenovo’s more typical lid flair make it appear most “familiar.”

A 12-core Snapdragon X Elite CPU with an integrated Adreno GPU and a neural processing unit (NPU) rated by Qualcomm at 45 trillion operations per second is included in the package. Storage is “up to” 1TB PCIe 4, and RAM is “up to” 64GB of DDR5. Lenovo allowed us to take a closer look at the new laptops and even see beneath the bottom cover, where it appears that memory cannot be changed but storage can. Not very surprising. There are two USB-C and two USB-A ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, a headphone jack, and a good range of ports for business travelers.

The display department of ThinkPads is usually lacking, but Lenovo has a good option of 14-inch 1920×1200 IPS panels, both regular and touch-enabled. There is also a high-end OLED upgrade available at “2.8K,” or 2880×1800, as Lenovo refers to it. A physical privacy shutter for the camera, a ThinkPad standard using infrared sensors for Windows Hello logins, a fingerprint reader on the power button, and two microphones are among the other noteworthy hardware features. The laptop is impressively light and thin, at just 2.72 pounds (1.24 kg) and.67 inches (16.9 mm). Regards, Arm Chips!

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7x

From a consumer perspective, the Yoga Slim 7×14 Gen 9 (whoa, a mouthful) is slightly heavier at 2.82 pounds, but it is sleeker and smaller overall (.51 inches, 23.9mm). With up to 1TB of Gen 4 storage and the same Snapdragon X Elite processor, the maximum memory is “only” 32GB DDR5.

This laptop, while being named Yoga, is a regular clamshell model without a fold-back hinge. Every Yoga model uses a 14.5-inch OLED screen with a highly precise resolution of 2944 by 1840, 1000 nits of brightness, a refresh rate that is marginally quicker than average at 90 Hz, and touch functionality, of course. That is a striking set of excellent specs. Even though it is a normal 1080p camera, the small lip around the lens allows it to have IR sensors and a physical shutter. Oddly, the Yoga has four microphones instead of just two.

Only three USB-C ports—two on the left and one on the right—are available on the incredibly thin Yoga, but they can all carry 40 gigabits of data per second in addition to power and video. A strong 70-watt-hour battery powers the device inside, and you may choose any color you like—as long as it is Cosmic Blue.

Both laptops will be available for purchase in June. Starting at $1699 is the ThinkPad T14s Gen 6, while the Yoga Slim 7x will cost $1199.
