Lenovo will ring in the arrival of Windows 11 with a pair of premium AMD Ryzen-based laptops.

The IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon will feature a carbon lid and aluminum body to go with its drop-dead gorgeous 14-inch OLED screen. Besides the infinite contrast an OLED provides, Lenovo will use a fast 90Hz, 2880×1800 panel with an aspect ratio of 16:10 on the Slim 7 Carbon. That’s just over 5 megapixels with a density of 243 pixels-per-inch. This is one smoking screen.

But this beauty goes deeper than the skin. 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.

Battery life should be fairly excellent with its 61 watt-hour battery rated for 14.5 hours of use. Lenovo said the Slim 7 Carbon will also feature Rapid Charge Express, which means the laptop can pack enough power into a dead battery in 15 minutes of charging to run for 3 hours form its 65 watt charger.

The Slim 7 Carbon features a 16:10 OLED display

Like every AMD laptop we’ve seen, there’s no support for Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 technology, nor is there a rectangular USB-A port. Lenovo instead offers three USB-C ports, which lets you charge the laptop while leaving two ports open for use. 

Thanks to the light-weight carbon and aluminum shell, Lenovo said the Slim 7 Carbon will weight about 2.4 pounds when it goes on sale in October with a $1,290 starting price.

If a 14-inch screen laptop with a GeForce MX450 isn’t enough for you, Lenovo also unveiled a new IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro. It’s aimed at someone who needs a little more oomph.

The laptop also features a 16:10 aspect ratio screen, which we consider superior to 16:9 aspect ratio laptops for getting work done. The IPS panel shines at a very bright 500 nits, and it’s rated for 100 percent of the sRGB spectrum with an option for a 120Hz refresh rate version.
