Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550 Review
The actual 13-inch Apple Mac-book Air $ 918. 88 offers nearly two times the battery life for many hundred dollars much less, and Lenovo's personal ThinkPad X1 carbon Touch £ 999.97 is actually thinner than the Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550, though a little bit heavier. Especially the actual Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch, our own Editors' Choice for luxurious ultrabook laptops, is not just a excellent system at a comparable price, but additionally has a larger feature set more enhanced battery-life, though it can definitely thicker, as well as heavier.
Calculating 0.67 through 12.56 through 8.35 ins (HWD)-about the same dimension as the Apple Mac-book (2015) and also the Asus Zenbook UX305FA-ASM1 the LaVie Z handles to be a lot, much lighter in weight, weighing just 1. 87 lbs. But listing the load only does a lot to describe exactly how light the laptop seems in your fingers. Like the actual Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch weighs 2.76 lbs. Weight differences of the ounce or maybe more are barely obvious; weight differences associated with nearly a pound tend to be astonishing. Initially when i first saw as well as felt the Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550 at CES, I believed I was becoming conned. Despite several times of use and screening, the laptop nevertheless stuns me using its weight (or absence thereof) every time We get it.
The actual 13.3-inch screen manages to impress using its 2,560-by-1,440 (WQHD) quality. While that isn't quite because high-res as the 3,200-by-1, 800-pixel displays located on the Dell XPS 13 Touch and also the Lenovo Yoga three Pro, it has the exact Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch (albeit without having touch capability), and it is not far faraway from the Retina Screen on the latest Apple company Macbook-pro 13-Inch (2,560 through 1,600) and also the 12-inch Apple Mac-book (2,304 through 1,440). It is also a big step-up from the complete HD panel within the Asus UX305FA-ASM1. The actual display features a matte finish with no touch capacity, however the better-than-HD resolution is really a definite in addition.
The one region where I expected a lot more than I got through the LaVie Z is actually battery life. Within our battery rundown examination, the LaVie Z HZ550 lasted 7 hours forty minutes. While that isn't bad overall-it are you going to take through the majority of a full workday without needing to be connected in-it's far through the battery life provided on other techniques. The Apple Mac-book Air 13-inch (2014) (15: 51) prospects the pack, implemented closely by the Apple company Mac-book (14: 10) and also the Dell XPS 13 Touch (12: 50 five with prolonged battery). Battery-life within the Lenovo X1 carbon touch (8: 57), the actual Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s touch (8:44), and also the Lenovo Yoga three Pro (8:19) side ahead with a half-hour or even more compared to LaVie Z HZ550 This is nearly entirely the consequence of weight-cutting steps, since the Lenovo LaVie Z uses a smaller twenty 9.6-watt electric battery, as compared using the 39-watt battery within the Apple MacBook and also the 45-watt battery within the Asus UX305FA-ASM1. The smaller-capacity battery means the physically smaller, and far lighter, battery, and the quantity of life coaxed from the significantly smaller sized battery within the LaVie Z is actually impressive for its dimension, but it nevertheless falls behind every similar system.
