  • The laptop releases in October 2021.
  • It will start at $1,449.

Lenovo has on-the-go creators on its mind. That's why it's developed the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro laptop, which gives creators the hardware horsepower they need in a form factor that's designed to go wherever, whenever.

The IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro laptop will come packed with a 16-inch QHD IPS touch screen (16:10) that supports a max brightness of 500 nits, 120Hz refresh rate, and 100% sRGB color gamut.

But a good display isn't everything. That's why the maximum-power configurations of the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro laptop come packed with AMD Ryzen 7 5800H mobile processors and an NVIDIA RTX 3050 laptop GPU. Tack on 1TB of SSD storage, and the machine offers just about everything needed for a wide variety of creative endeavors. Oh, and it comes with Windows 11, in case you're excited for Microsoft's latest OS.

All the power of the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro laptop is compressed into a tiny form factor, hence the "slim" in the name. But getting an RTX GPU and one of the best CPUs in a package that's under five pounds and less than an inch in thickness is going to cost you a pretty penny since pricing starts at $1,449. When the laptops release in October, you'll have a better idea of what a maxed-out configuration costs.
