Laptops can be used for a variety of different things. It can be used primarily for work, or it can be used for entertainment purposes. Sure, a home theater PC setup would probably be ideal but for those on the go or for students who want to enjoy some music or movies before classes, laptops are probably a better way to go about it.
If that describes you or someone you know, Lenovo might have something for you guys in the form of their Z40 and Z50 laptops, which according to the company will be entertainment-focused. This is evidenced with the laptop’s sporting an optional Full HD 1920×1080 display. It will also pack a Dolby Home Theater sound system and will be powered by AMD’s APUs as well the option to go for AMD’s R7 GPU if gaming is what you’re after.
Interestingly enough while most computers and laptops seem to do away with the need for an optical drive, Lenovo has decided to keep it with the Z40 and the Z50. It will pack a DVD player/burner which users can use to watch movies with or listen to CDs. The laptops will also measure just under an inch thick meaning you should be able to bring it around with you no problem.
Lenovo’s Z series of laptops are expected to be priced starting at $579 and will go up depending on your configuration. The Lenovo Z40 will be available in the beginning of May while the Lenovo Z50 is expected to see a release later in August.
