NEC has announced a new ultrabook called the LaVie Z that weighs only 875 g. The ultrabook claims to be the lightest in the world and was able to reach that 875 g weight by using a new lithium-magnesium alloy for the first time. The ultrabook is only 14.9 mm thick at its thickest point and uses a 13.3-inch screen.

NEC integrated the display enclosure housing into the display components allowing it to be thinner. The ultrabook be available with a Core i7-3517U processor and 256 GB of SSD storage or a Core i5-3317U processor and 128 GB of SSD storage. Both machines use 4 GB of RAM, a battery good for 8.1 hours of run time, integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a HD WebCam. Pricing is unknown.
