I just love how technology is constantly getting better and cheaper! Time was, only high end computers had the latest features. But just wait until you see this affordable new laptop with a killer new feature. This new technology could actually change the way we use our computers. Take a look at what this new laptop has inside.
China's leading PC company, Lenovo, introduced several affordable computer and tablet options, but one really stood out. The Z51 laptop carries an affordable price tag, but that doesn't mean it's short on features. The computer actually has a really cool 3D camera built right in.
The camera is powered by Lenovo's RealSense technology and can sense depth similar to how the human eye does. With this futuristic camera, users can scan real-world objects for 3D printing, play 3D video games and even use gestures to issue commands to the laptop.

How much does that cool technology cost? Not as much as you would think. The Z51 laptop with optional 3D camera starts at just $599.
If a 3D camera is a little over the top for you, you can always opt for the Z51 (without 3D camera) or 14-inch Z41. Both laptops come start at $499 and come with 1080p displays, optional discreet AMD graphics, up to 16GB memory and up to a Core i7 CPU.
Lenovo also introduced a $249 Chromebook competitor called IdeaPad 100 and a $549 business tablet called ThinkPad 10 to compete with Microsoft's Surface Pro 3.
[IdeaPad 100 is] available in 14- and 15-inch sizes, with a 1,366 x 768 non-touch screen. Lenovo says it's aimed at buyers "who need only the most essential features" like web browsing, meaning the max configuration has a mere BayTrail-M N3540 CPU and 500GB of storage.

The second-generation ThinkPad 10 runs Windows 10 and will be available in August. It has lots of business friendly features like a stylus and battery that lasts up to 10 hours. It should have above average performance thanks to an Intel Atom quad-core CPU and a maximum of 4GB RAM.
