Lenovo ships LaVie Z 360 notebook with serious flaws, problems

New Delhi: Lenovo machines may be coming to the market with well-known flaws even to the Chinese laptop and smartphone maker. Reports suggest that the world’s top PC maker came out with two very light weight Windows 8.1 LaVie Z series notebooks merely this past week. Nonetheless what was not known till now by the public was the fact that one of the two notebooks namely LaVie Z 360 notebook is being shipped to consumers with known flaws.

There is no denying the fact that the newly launched notebook, the 2.04-pound 13.3-inch LaVie Z 360 notebook is very enticing and looks great. Nonetheless Consumer Reports has come out with a report that the newly launched laptop actually came loaded with an apology letter by the company. Reports suggest that Chinese tech giant has actually admitted that it made ‘a couple missteps’ in its ‘haste to bring the product to market.’

This super lightweight LaVie Z 360 is an all-in-one device that can be converted into different modes. But the problem arises when the laptop is used in tent mode, the display doesn’t auto-rotate. This means that whenever a consumer needs to change the device mode, he or she will have to manually tweak.

Nonetheless this is not the only problem that a buyer will confront. The report goes on to add that even in stand mode, the keyboard doesn’t automatically deactivate. This means that if a consumer is trying to use the laptop in Stand Mode with the device lying flat on a table, it might work fine, but if you place it in your lap, the keyboard causes unsatisfactory user experience. With so many flawed, this laptop at $1,699 onwards doesn’t seem to be that enticing offer with a 5 per cent discount.
