Lenovo’s IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro and Carbon Are Its First Windows 11 Laptops

With Windows 11 releasing on October 5, Lenovo has announced a pair of new Ideapad laptops that ship with the new operating system: the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon and Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro.

Like several of the best ultrabooks, both laptops run on AMD’s Ryzen 5000-series processors  and have options for discrete graphics from Nvidia, but they differ in scope. The IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon aims to be slim and portable. It starts at $1,289.99 and goes up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U and Nvidia GeForce MX450 graphics, as well as up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. The 14-inch OLED display has a 16:10 aspect ratio and goes up to 90 Hz.
