Gigabyte shows off world’s lightest ultrabook

Written by Fudzilla staff



Anorexic 11.6-incher with a hefty price tag


Gigabyte is proudly showing off its latest notebook effort, an ultra light 11.6-inch notebook with a four digit price tag.

The Gigabyte X11 is powered by Ivy Bridge processors, it packs 4GB of RAM, 128GB of solid-state storage and Bluetooth 4.0. It also features USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, microSD slot and a 4730mAh power pack to keep it going for hours.

However, its coup de grace is not under the bonnet. The X11 measures just 16.5mm at the girth and weighs 975g, so in terms of dimensions it is halfway between an average ultrabook and a tablet. Gigabyte also opted for some premium materials and the X11 is said to sport a carbon fiber shell and aluminium hinges.

However, the fancy materials and Ivy Bridge parts don’t come cheap. Prices range from $999 to $1299 and with convertible ultrabooks just around the corner this sounds pretty steep.
