    I usually break my laptop with my hinges. I love my current Yoga 910 that has watchband hinge; unfortunately, no one offers such hinges already.

    Considering the materials and construction of the hinge and chassis, particularly in the hinge's proximity, can we conclude that this falls into the category of strong hinge durability?

    Thank you for your perspective.

      It should be fine, but overall it's impossible to determine with absolute certainty in a review. This is a design used on many Yoga/IdeaPad laptops over the years, you'll be able ti find online if it's faulty or not.

    Hello Andrei,
    Thanks for the detailed review!
    What ultrabook do you recommend for an IT Student (Faculty of Computer Science)?
    In the same price range as this Lenovo Yoga Slim 6.

      That's tricky. I'd probably go with a full-size laptop with the best features I could get. Perhaps a Legion 5 from last year or maybe a 2023 configuration with a 4050, if you can find something within your budget. I'd reckon you'll also want to play games, I know I did back when I was in school (Computer Science as well).

      But, if you'd rather get something more portable and don't care that much about the GPU performance, I would look into the Yoga Pro 7 with the IPS screen and Ryzen 97840HS processor. An IdeaPad Pro 5 with AMD specs would be a good option as well.

    Ryzen 97840HS => AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS ?

      I meant the Ryzen 7 7840HS.

      No need to leave links to emag here. Those are the options, though.

    Hi Andrei, thanks for your great review. I really like this laptop and I'm thinking about buying it, but I'm worried about one thing and that's the burn-in effect of this OLED display. Can you or someone please share their experience with this model or laptop with OLED display? Thank you in advance.

      I wouldn't worry that much about burn in if you're aware of the particularities of OLEDs and take a few precautionary steps in your use. They're explained in our OLED laptops guide, use the search to find it.

    Hello Andrei,
    thank you for your great review!
    One one of the IPS modules have 300 nits of peak brightness. Do you think this is enough for doing light work outside (in a cafe for example) and heavy tasks indoors?
    Thanks very much!

      It's not ideal for bright environments imo, but it would depend on your expectations. Is that IPS model at least matte, or still glossy?

      • Ardus

        It is a matt screen. The exact specifications are:
        14" 2,2K (2240 x 1400), IPS, matt, Non-Touch, 100% sRGB, 300 cd/m², 60 Hz

        Unfortunately there is only either this IPS model or the OLED screen which you have tested.

        It should be more or less this screen tested here: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/59951-lenovo-thinkpad-t14s-gen3-review/#a4

        Good contrast and blacks for an IPS, and decent brightness. I'd give it a go and see if it works for you.
