Report: Lenovo Shipping LaVie Z Laptop With Known Flaws, Offers 5% Discount

Lenovo LavieZ HZ550

At CES, Lenovo and NEC Personal Computers (NECP) announced world’s lightest 13-in laptop and world’s lightest 13-in convertible Windows PCs. The Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550 takes the title of world’s lightest 13-in laptop PC at just 1.72-lbs., while the Lenovo LaVie Z HZ750 claims world’s lightest 13-in convertible PC at just 2.04-lbs.

Recently, Lenovo LaVie Z 360 went on sale in the US. According to the reports, Lenovo shipped this device with flaws related to auto-rotation.

Specifically, with the LaVie Z 360, when it’s used in Tent mode — which means it’s bent back until it can be placed on a desk like an A-frame — the screen image doesn’t auto-rotate, meaning you’d see things upside down until you manually rotated the image using a Windows command. And in Stand mode — where the keyboard is placed facedown on a desk, serving as a stand for the bent-back touchscreen — the keyboard doesn’t auto-deactivate, causing, as Lenovo put it in an email to Consumer Reports, an “unsatisfying user experience.”

Because of this, Lenovo is offering 5% discount for consumers who ordered this device. Hopefully, Lenovo will fix this issue soon in the new machines.
