    Impressive. I'm not a huge fan of 4k laptop displays (save where that means the display has other qualities like colour accuracy, and it shouldn't do) so this looks like a really well-rounded piece of kit.

    This means it surpasses the 25W TDP briefly and consistently, though long-term power remains below this figure. This explains why the Yoga Slim 7 looks so good in short-term load tests such as Cinebench.
    I guess this suits a lot of real life situations as well. Yes of you are genuinely hammering the CPU for a length of time then performance will drop, but when you load your 5th application or the virus scanner goes nuts over a tar file you've just extracted. Did you try back to back benchmarks to see how much the numbers did drop? Obviously difficult to get repeatable results.

    Don't forget the other problem with 4K and other ultra high res diplays: battery life. Driving the backlight through smaller pixels uses more power.
    In theory an emitive technology like OLED shouldn't have that problem, but currently any laptops with OLED see a huge drop in battery life in the first place. Guess for OLED, if you mainly use your laptop on battery in a dark room the battery life might not be too bad but can't see any notebook reviewers changing their established testing process to huddle in a corner in a darkened room.

    Looks good. Whilst not a 'Yoga' model, will be getting a Ryzen 4800U powered Lenovo Ideapad shortly so hoping for similar figures myself. These 4800U chips seem pretty hard to get at the moment (Laptops generally pretty hard to get thanks to Covid and distance learning/working from home shenanigans).
    If the Earth is a sphere how do you travel to the ends of it?

    Can anyone offer any insight where you can actually buy this, or any other 4800U based machines?

    Really keen to get hold of one, but having no luck at all. The Yoga Slim 7 seems to have disappeared from the Lenovo website entirely and only reseller I can find is Argos with a 4700U model.
    Only other option I can find is the ASUS PN50 Mini PC which is £500 barebones with a 4800U and available from October - £130 premium over the 4700U!

    Still not seeing them now. The highest-end model of the Yoga Slim 7 available here has the 4700U and 8GB of RAM for £849.99

    Something's not right - either nobody's getting enough stock of the high-bin chips, or something's preventing OEMs from even *trying* to sell high-spec AMD laptops.
