The detail of our analysis in this article.
Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 enough for internet use?
Even if your use is limited to surfing the Web, writing e-mails and sometimes using an Excel spreadsheet, the minimum computer quality is essential.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. Here you have an almost perfect product.With this Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05, Lenovo is well positioned in relation to other competing models.It’s a big screen that you have: 15 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. The processor at the heart of this laptop, a Core i5-1035G4, is a rational choice. Considering that the components evolve very quickly, Lenovo offers a laptop of good quality that will remain a good choice over several years. A logical decision in relation to the intended use of this computer: surfing the Internet and sufficient computing power. The amount of RAM provided is 16 Gb. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
For hard drive sizing, Lenovo decided to put 500 Gb. This is the standard model. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. Considering the offers currently available in terms of public cloud, and your internet usage, it is highly likely that you will never completely fill the disk space of this laptop.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 10 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. This is one of the most important laptops on the market at the moment compared to other laptops. Incidentally, you will have all the more pleasure to use it for a long time because of its very pleasant screen.
Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 for videos?
The Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 will now allow you to go beyond the exclusive use for work and will also serve as a tool for digital entertainment. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. And to put it simply, this model is clearly one of the best in its category for watching videos or listening to music. In this section we will look at features such as screen size, resolution, built-in speakers.
Lenovo presents this model in a large size version. It is one of the largest, with a screen size of only a few 15 inches, and it has a good resolution of 1920×1080. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 1.8 kg.
Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 will be ideal for movies, photos and games in a dark or half light environment because you will have the means to control light intensity. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 has a processor Core i5-1035G4, a little more powerful than average, compared to those dedicated to office automation. With this, you are sure to have a scalable product (if needed), and that will fit perfectly with your peripherals (speakers, video projectors, etc…). This will result in fluid video and audio sessions.
Equipped with the Intel Iris Plus G4 graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
Either it’s something you’re going to use while travelling or on the go, or you’re between your office and the living room.You get 10 hours of battery life, which is better than many other models. No need to constantly check the battery level; you’ll be able to watch movies and listen to music for a long time.
The Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. This seems to be the issue that the Lenovo didn’t really take into account in the design of this Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 is in the average, neither too light nor too heavy: 1.8 Kg. It’s still an easy-to-handle computer, even if it’s not an ultrabook. On your lap, this laptop holds well, and the size of the screen and the base remain acceptable. Its weight is a disadvantage, but the15 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Equipped with a glossy slab, it provides very good visual comfort. The rendering on screen is good. On the other hand, this shiny slab can be a nuisance in brightly lit areas.
Unfortunately it is not equipped with anti-reflective tiles. Also, you will avoid using this laptop outdoors or with too much light.
The manufacturer offers the processor Core i5-1035G4 on this laptop; in average in terms of power compared to other products in the same range, and also in terms of energy consumption.
However,you’ll have to decrease the manufacturer’s data concerning the autonomy figures given for this Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05. It is unlikely that you will reach manufacturer’s figures; rather, consider 70-80% at best.
With this laptop and its autonomy of 10 hours, you have in fact one of the best models of the moment.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. The reason for this is its size; with 15 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
On the connector side, it Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 has 4 ports. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Following our tests, it appeared to us that it is not Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 really made for travelling.

All the applications you’ll need to get started are available. If you decide to install pro applications, you may need to add more memory or you may experience performance degradation.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 500 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
The interest of the laptop is to be able to be used in unplugged mode. Being only on batteries, you have 10 hours of autonomy at your disposal. As a reminder, with such a powerful laptop, it’s hard to do much better Lenovo.
On the connection side, the Yoga Slim 7 15IIL05i s equipped with USB 3 technology. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full.
