The first laptop with Ryzen 7000-series GPU has landed in Nepal, and it is none other than the new IdeaPad Slim 1. It is a budget-oriented traditional laptop built to handle entry-level tasks for home and school. In this article, we will discuss the latest price and availability of the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 1 (2022) in Nepal.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 1 (2022) Overview:
Design and Display
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 1 (2022) comes in an all-plastic chassis with three color options: Cloud Grey, Abyss Blue, and Sand. The base 14” model measures 17.9mm thick and has a starting weight of 1.38 kg, while the 15” model is slightly heavier at 1.58 kg. However, we will focus specifically on the former since it’s the one currently available in Nepal.
Even for a 14-inch model, Lenovo offers a wide range of options from HD TN to FHD IPS panels. In Nepal, you are likely to find IdeaPad Slim 1 with an FHD TN panel with 220 nits of brightness and a viewing angle of 90°.
Webcam, Keyboard, Audio
Towards the center of the top bezels, there is a small protrusion that houses the 720p webcam. Fortunately, this one comes with a physical shutter for those who like to have control over their privacy. It is accompanied by a dual-microphone array with a noise-canceling feature.
Since it’s an affordable laptop, there is no backlit keyboard on Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 1 (2022). The 14-inch model doesn’t have a numeric keyboard either. That said, you still get a dedicated function keys row and a mylar (plastic) touchpad with Windows precision drivers. As for audio, Lenovo IdeaPad 1 features two speakers with 1.5W each with Dolby’s backing.
