Both devices are Lenovo’s first NECP products available outside Japan, resulting from Lenovo’s joint venture with NEC since 2011.

Both models of LaVie Z are measuring just 16.9 mm. Both machines use a magnesium-lithium (Mg-Li)3 body construction along with specialized technologies including a Magnesium Lithium forged back cover. The materials are 50 percent lighter than aluminum and as strong as any heavier typical Magnesium alloy laptop materials. The HZ750 also has a direct bonded touchscreen that uses a film instead of cover glass.

It has a up to 5th Generation Intel Core i7 processor (on the HZ750), Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update, and 128 GB SSD storage.
