Lenovo’s “MacBook Killer” Hit The Shelves

Lenovo turned a lot of heads in this year’s Consumer Electronics Show when the company unveiled a pair of notebook PCs under the new LaVie Z series. Today, these lightweight powerhouses have reached the shelves, but were slightly pricier than what was previously reported.

Lenovo LaVie Z specs:


13.3-inch Quad HD Anti-Glare LED Display, 2560 x 1440 @220ppi (HZ550)
13.3-inch Quad HD IPS Touchscreen Display, 2560 x 1440 @220ppi (HZ750)
2.4Ghz Intel Core i7-5500U dual-core processor, 4MB Cache
Intel HD Graphics 5500
Intel Wireless 7265 (2×2) AC
Wi-Fi 802.11ac
Bluetooth 4.0
720p Webcam
Yamaha AudioEngine Utility
2x USB 3.0
1x HDMI, 1x Combo jack
SD Card Reader
6-Cell Lithium-Polymer Battery
Windows 8.1 64-bit

The two new Lenovo LaVie notebook PCs are now available in the US. The Lenovo LaVie HZ750, the variant that sports a touchscreen display, will set you back USD1,699. Meanwhile, the non-touchscreen model, the Lenovo LaVie HZ550 starts at USD1,499.

      Trashy than a macbook? This is 200-500$ more than the 2015 13in retina mbp. MBP also have intel hd6100 graphics, a 2.7ghz(boost to 3.1ghz) dual core processor and a pcie storage which is faster than ssd. The only advantage of lenovo is the additional 1mb cache.

      That’s why I said “Macbook” not “Macbook Pro”
      Know the difference.

    Just bring the vaio line back. We don’t need this kind of crap.

  4. The fact that they labelled this as a “Macbok Killer” means that the Macbook is still the laptop to beat and will always be. Why else would you want to kill it, if its not the best. The Mac still sets the standard in beauty and efficiency. This comment comes from a Power Windows user for many years. And yet, on handling a Mac, I found the system to be so much better, esp because I can extend the features to my handheld devices (phone and tablet).

    “Once you go Mac, you will never go back.”

    Those who criticize it are those who either have never truly handled one or are to bitter because they cannot afford one.

    Just my two cents. ????

      Or those who have a different opinion from you, I personally have tried mac, and many friends of mine, and most of us didn’t like it.
      I would respect you post if you added “in my opinion” in the end, but instead, you put something what a typical Apple fanboy would say, “because they cannot afford one”
      Trust me, many people who are much richer than you uses windows, because it’s their personal preference.
