It’s time to start looking forward to technology and investing in new 11th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics. Both of which come with the impressively designed Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i. As its name implies, this is an ultra-sleek and slim laptop with aerospace-grade aluminum construction. There is even a bit of genuine, hand-crafted leather cover.
Another neat touch is the all-glass palm rest that includes the trackpad. Lenovo has utilized a “Smart Sensor Trackpad” that vibrates to simulate a click, similarly to Apple’s haptic trackpad technology, except better. This Lenovo trackpad also provides 50% more active surface area than a regular trackpad on other laptops and MacBooks.
The 14-inch display is very bright and colorful. It comes in two options depending on the configuration: 14-inch FHD touchscreen/IPS (1920 x 1080) at 400-nits and 14-inch UHD glossy touchscreen (3840 x 2160) / HDR 400 at 500-nits.
There are several “smart” features and “security” tools to enhance the user experience with the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i. Log in via facial recognition thanks to the IR webcam, which works with Windows Hello. They even sense when you are turning away from the laptop and automatically lock the screen. Should anyone who isn’t you move the 9i without your permission, an alarm will go off.
There is no lack of connectivity and networking with this IdeaPad. It has multiple Thunderbolt 4 ports, Intel Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and headphone/microphone combo. With the Thunderbolt 4 ports, there is power delivery and DisplayPort. For the audio, a 2 x 2W Dolby Atmos speaker system and two microphones come with the system.
