    Hi Andrei !
    I'm considering buying the 16" Slim 7 Pro and would like get it at the lowest possible price.
    So I'm wondering what gain to expect from the Ryzen 7 5800H option over Ryzen 5 5600H, and especially from any of the GTX 1650 or RTX 3050 options over the integrated Vega Graphics.
    The laptop won't be running video games but will be used for photo editing with Adobe Lightroom Classic.
    I would appreciate your thoughts on this :-)

    Bonus question : are you able to list similar laptops with built-in SD card reader (not µSD, I just can't see the reason to be of this over a full SD reader on a laptop…) ?

    My ideal laptop would come with SD card reader, numpad, at least 16 GB RAM, 15" or 16" 16/10 screen 100% sRGB or better and good color calibration, Ryzen 5 or 7 processor, and AZERTY (french) keyboard !

    Hi, nice review! Would you recommend this laptop for management work? This means mainly office productivity (word, heavy excel usage, outlook, etc.) software. No photo/video editing, no gaming. My main requirements are fairly long battery life (at least 8h of office work), maximum 14" display, 16:10 ratio, ideally something more than FHD resolution. Does any other laptop (ultrabook) come to mind? I can get this one here in Czech Republic with an OLED display (Ryzen 7, 16GB ram, 1TB ssd) for under 1500 USD, which is, give or take 200 USD, my budget.

      This should do very well, just make sure you're OK with the potential culprits of OLEDs with static interfaces (such as in excel, word, browser) and take the precautions to combat them – not use the screen at very high brightness, use full-screen mode as much as possible, activate an aggressive screensaver, etc. The Vivobook 14 and ZenBook 14 from Asus would be other options to consider, similarly powerful and with OLED, but might not be available in stores yet and might not be as competitively priced. This Yoga is very competitive in the Eastern EU markets
