Lenovo's 13-inch LaVie Z laptop is lighter than the MacBook, and it's available now

Looking for a super light laptop that has more than one port? If so, you might want to take a look at Lenovo's LaVie Z notebook, which we first saw earlier this year at CES. The laptop is now officially available starting at $1,499 for the standard model and $1,699 for the Z 360 version, which has a touchscreen and a flippable hinge like the company's line of Yoga laptops.

Those prices are a bit more than what Lenovo promised back in January, and that's not the only change: the official weight starts at 1.87 pounds, up from the 1.72 pounds we heard before. Nevertheless, that's still ludicrously light for a 13-inch laptop — it's even lighter than Apple's 2.03-pound MacBook. Inside that light-weight shell, you'll get a 13.3-inch, 2560 x 1440 screen, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of flash storage. Oh, and for ports, you get two USB 3.0 jacks, an SD card slot, and an HDMI port.
