NEC intros 13.3-inch, 2.2lb LaVie Z ultrabook

NEC promises ultra-light magnesium-alloy bodied ultrbook this summer

NEC has introduced a new ultrabook PC, the LaVie Z. It gets a lithium-magnesium body that helps the 13.3-inch notebooks tip the scales at just 2.2lbs. Otherwise, specs aren't made available, but NEC is likely to infuse Intel's Ivy Bridge processors for ultrabooks once they become available.

The notebook is due to arrive this summer, likely in June, though pricing isn't known either. Whether it will come to market outside of Japan is likewise unknown, but likely. [via Impress]
