The LaVie Z is the newest ultrabook from Lenovo. At just 2 lbs, it’s the lightest in its class. Does that make it the perfect adventure-travel companion? We’ve been carrying it everywhere to find out.
15 hours of battery life. A gorgeous 13-inch display that looks like it's floating in air. Silky carbon fiber sandwiched between shiny aluminum. Starting at just $800. My only question about the new Dell XPS 13: what's the catch?
