Lenovo has announced the release of two new notebooks in its Yoga range: the Yoga 5G and the Slim 7, both of which have been designed with ultra-portability in mind. And the Yoga 5G is of particular interest, as it’s the world’s first ARM-powered Windows notebook to offer 5G connectivity.  

Lenovo Yoga 5G

If you’re looking for a laptop that’ll offer super-fast connectivity – even without Wi-Fi – then the new Yoga 5G could be the perfect notebook for you, providing built-in technology that enables you to connect to 5G networks using the device. 

The Lenovo Yoga 5G also boasts some impressive features, including the Snapdragon 8cx Computer Platform, nine built-in antennas, a 14-inch Full HD IPS display, up to 24-hours of battery life, and a fingerprint reader. The Yoga 5G also features up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and two USB-C ports.

These features make this laptop perfectly suited for those people needing to work on the move, especially considering the fact that it’ll connect to the internet via 5G, has such an extensive battery life, and can weigh in at under three pounds – depending on your specs.

The Yoga 5G will be toward the higher end of the laptop price scale, though, with models starting from $1,499 (£1139) when it goes on sale in the spring.

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7

As well as announcing a new 5G model, Lenovo has also released information on the Yoga Slim 7, which will be available in both 14-inch and 15-inch versions, and – at the top end of its specs – it will support 10th-gen Intel or AMD Ryzen 4000 processors. The Yoga Slim 7 will also run a 4K display with Dolby Vision and 100-percent sRGB coverage, as well as the NVIDIA GeForce MX / GTX or Radeon graphics cards, with prices starting at $1,209.99 (£920), and the AMD version expected to cost $849.99 (£646).
