It is true that this notebook is not going to see or paint, is a product by and for Japan that is not usually sold on the European continent. The LaVie Hybrid Zero is a creation of NEC and we can say that it is the 13.3-inch lighter laptop on the market.
Yes, we have heard many times that "this laptop is the lightest", we have recently presented LG Gram notebooks, which are characterized by include good performance in a computer that weighs less than a kilo. That to lower of the kilo is an easy thing for the model of NEC, that leaves thing in 769 grams.
We almost got into the field of tablets: a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, without a keyboard, goes to 723 grams, so the new LaVie is practically tying with the Apple tablet star. But let's not forget, this is a complete computer.
The LaVie Hybrid Zero comes in two different sizes, the cited 13.3 inches and a smaller 11.6 inches from which we have less information - this is a 2 in 1 we can remove the keyboard from. In both cases it is served with Intel seventh-generation processors, the Kaby Lake.
Although there are no comparative images to see the size with respect to other light weights of the market, we can say that it is especially small, this is achieved mainly by the reduction of frames. They are so small that the webcam has to go to the bottom of the screen.
All by weight: little autonomy
The next trick to get a weight and dimensions smaller than your competitors is on the battery. NEC has decided that its equipment is the most portable in the market, but also has a maximum autonomy of 6.5 hours. It seems a bit short for what is being offered in the market, but this is the game that has wanted to enter the Japanese company.
This happens in the HZ350 model, but the Japanese are smart and know that there will be those who prefer to carry some more weight and receive in return more battery capacity: the HZ550 and HZ750 arrive at 10 o'clock. In any case there is a proprietary system of fast loading.
No less interesting is to see that despite their obsession with weight, NEC laptops feature a hinge between keyboard and screen that allows them to rotate in 360 degrees. What allows us to use the equipment in different shape configurations, you know: tablet, laptop, stand.
Taking a look at what's on the market, at 13.3 inches, we have a Samsung Notebook 9 900X3L with 843 grams, or the 980 grams of the aforementioned LG Gram. Without leaving NEC, the 'mother house' Lenovo has other LaVie Z that weigh like the Samsung model. The most similar is a Fujitsu that does not lack ports.
