The world’s lightest laptop is going to make it to the US! The Lenovo LaVie Z by NEC levitates in the hands and people who are dying to get their hands on it.
The 13-inch (HZ550) LaVie Z weighs in at 1.72 lbs, whereas HZ750 with a slightly different configuration falls in at just 2.04 lbs. The LaVie is not only lightweight but also super thin with a 16.9 mm sleek edge. The light weight specialized magnesium-lithium is 50% lighter than aluminum and as strong as any heavier Magnesium alloy.The HZ750 also has a direct bonded touchscreen that uses a film instead of cover glass.
Despite its feather weight, the battery-span for the LaVie is only around 7 hours, which is quite a disappoint for a device that is designed to be portable and convenient. The shell is actually made from magnesium-lithium, which is lighter than aluminum and stronger than any magnesium out there.
The 15-inch runs on a 5th generation Intel Core i7 processor. The LaVie is actually a two-in-one device, so it is not just an ordinary laptop. It can also be a tablet when flipped 360°, giving it the flexibility to fit the needs of the user.
The Lenovo LaVie Z will be available in in May 2015 for about $1,299 (13-inch) and $1,499.
