Our Senior Editor reviewed the Lenovo Yoga 7i 14 & 16 (Gen 7) from last year. Many of the same strengths carry over to this year's model:

"Those who don't need utmost performance should stick with the 14-inch Yoga 7i. It can be equipped with an OLED display, it's easier to carry around, and it just feels more solid due to its smaller size. If you do need that extra power or just love the idea of a bigger display, touchpad, and number pad, the 16-inch Yoga 7i is standing by."
