Lenovo launches the ultralight LaVie Z laptop

Lenovo LaVie Z
Lenovo LaVie Z, winner of CES Best of 2015 award and world’s lightest 13-inch laptop, is now officially available.

If you have been looking for an ultralight 13-inch laptop, then Lenovo might have just the perfect model for you. The LaVie Z, initially announced at CES 2015 back in January, is now available. The company claims it to be the lightest 13-inch laptop in the world, weighing just 1.87 pounds. It’s slightly more than what we’d been promised at the Las Vegas show, where Lenovo advertised it to be only 1.72 pounds. Still, it is considerably lighter than MacBook Air.

Apart from being feather-light, the LaVie Z sports some decent components with Intel’s 5-gen. Core i7-5500U, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage. The IPS multi-touch display’s resolution is 2560x1440 (QHD).

As for connectivity and expansion options, Lenovo LaVie Z comes with two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, SD card reader, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.0.

The laptop is running Windows 8.1 and has been priced at $1699 ($1499 with Lenovo’s official web store discount).

Apart from the regular version, a LaVie Z 360 convertible model is also availabe. It comes with the same components but can also be converted into tablet mode, by rotating the screen with the same hinge mechanism we know from the Yoga series. The LaVie Z 360’s official price is $1849 (available at $1699 at Lenovo’s web store.)
