Lenovo has really been getting ahead of things of late and been coming up with some new designs.
Following after the success of the Yoga range, here comes the Lenovo LaVie Z laptop and Lenovo LaVie Z 360 laptop. Levono claims that they are the “world’s lightest 13.3-inch notebook PCs”.
With a 5th generation Intel Core i7 processors and Quad HD 13.3-inch 2560 x 1440 displays, the two laptops pack a hell of a lot of grunt for something that weighs 850g. The convertible with touchscreen is a little heavier at 925g but they are still on the light end of the scale.
Lenovo’s latest laptops either undercut or ,match the Apple’s Intel Core M powered machine’s and provide much more computing power.
