Lenovo Yoga 7 (2024) review: A solid AI-powered offering offset by a lackluster screen and camera


This year, we’ve been seeing loads of the best AI PCs hit the market now that processors with AI-boosting NPUs (Neural Processing Units) are more readily available. One of the latest laptops to fit this description is the Lenovo Yoga 7 2-in-1 (2024), which features an NPU-toting AMD Ryzen 7 8840HS processor along with a Radeon 780M graphics card. 

I’ve been using this laptop for a couple of weeks to see how well it performs in various scenarios. It isn’t perfect, but it meets the need for a value device that can work as both an AI laptop and a tablet. Here’s how it accomplishes this. 

This review was made possible thanks to a review unit provided by Lenovo. The company did not see the contents of this review before publishing.
