CES 2015 Lenovo LaVie Z is a ultrabook lightest MacBook Air
Two versions are available: HZ550 and HZ750. The first is only a ultrabook, but the second comprises a hinge 360 degrees similar to the Yoga series of the firm, which makes a real device 2-in-1. These are the lightest devices never marketed in their categories, with the HZ550 which records a weight of 780 grams on the scale, against 925 grams for HZ750 model. Both are extremely thin, with a thickness of only 16.9 mm.
You might worry that such systems are lightweight with a fragile, but Lenovo claims to have addressed this problem with a unique chassis of its kind in magnesium-lithium. The company says that this material is 50% lighter than aluminum, but just as robust.
The performance also look very good. Both laptops have an Intel Core 5th generation, and HZ750 can be equipped with a dual-core Intel Core i7 in its high-end version. Both models feature an SSD 128GB of Yamaha speakers, Wi-Fi 802.11ac connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0, and an anti-glare 13-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The HZ550 comes with 4 GB of RAM, while the HZ750 model is capable of receiving up to 8 GB.
Both will arrive in America in May, 2015. The HZ550 will be sold 1,299 dollars, while the HZ750 will be marketed around 1499 dollars. Lenovo claims that the devices will be available in Japan in the spring. In France, nothing has filtered the moment.
