The world's lightest ultrabook Gigabyte X11 makes for the perfect mobile office

Not exactly a mobile story as there is no cellular radio included, but it’s somewhat connected, nevertheless…

Recently I came across the Gigabyte X11, which the Taiwanese company touts as the world’s lightest ultrabook. Made out of carbon fiber, this portable office weighs just 2.15 points (975 grams), which is less than any other competing product. Yup this includes the 11.6-inch MacBook Air which has a weight of 2.38 pounds (1.08 kg) and Asus Zenbook U21 that weighs 2.4 pounds (1.09 kg). Best of all, the X11 comes with third-generation (Ivy Bridge) Core i5 or (better option) Core i7 processor as well as 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM, ensuring great end-user experience — in other words, it’s super fast and it boots-up in few seconds. Rest of the specs include a 11.6-inch 1366×768 pixels HD LED backlight display, 1.3-megapixel webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and so on.

Needless to say I contacted Gigabyte and I’m hoping to have a review unit at some point next month when it should also be available across the globe. As soon as I get my review unit, I’ll get back to you with some photos and more detailed description of this laptop. Stay tuned…
