Lenovo today launched two new laptops that set a new benchmark when it comes to portability. The company’s latest Lavie Z and Lavie Z 360 laptops are claimed to be the world’s lightest 13.3” notebook PCs.
Both the Lavie Z and the Lavie Z 360 notebooks come with a 13.3” Quad HD 2560 x 1440 resolution display, Intel 5th Gen Core-i7 5500U Broadwell 2.4 GHz CPU, Intel HD Graphics 5500, 8GB RAM, 256GB of solid state memory, and up to 9 hours of claimed battery life. Ports include 2 USB 3.0, 1x HDMI out, and an SD card reader.
The two laptops measure 12.56” x 0.67” x 8.35” and weigh 1.87 lbs for the base configuration. That’s quite comparable to the Apple MacBook, despite the fact that the Lavie Z laptops boast of a slightly larger display.
Both the Lavie Z and the Lavie Z 360 models are currently on sale for $1,499 and $1,699 respectively. The main difference between the Lavie Z and the Lavie Z 360 is that the Lavie Z 360 features a convertible touchscreen, offering the benefit of both a tablet and a notebook in a single device.
