In a world where smartphones and tablets are increasingly being used for all kinds of tasks, laptops still seem fairly bulky in comparison. However, hardware vendors have been trimming down the size of laptops. Inhon has now unveiled a new laptop which the company is touting as the world’s thinnest and lightest laptop.
Blade 13 Carbon laptop weighs a mere 870g, which effectively makes it the lightest laptop in the world, beating the likes of MacBook Air by a sizeable margin. At the same time, the laptop has a waist of 10.7 mm which means that it is astonishingly thin.
Given such a profile, one would assume that Inhon has probably packed really modest specifications into this machine. But the interesting part is that despite being so petite, Blade 13 Carbon includes a core i5 or i7 CPU as well as 4GB of RAM, 128GB of 256GB of SSD and a 1080p display.
Many major hardware vendors such as Apple, Dell and such have been trying really hard to trim down the size of their laptops. So it is quite surprising that a Taiwanese vendor has been able to achieve this goal. The aforementioned version of the Blade 13 Carbon laptop costs $1350.
There’s another version which features a 1600 x 900 fiberglass display and weighs slightly more at 1195g. It costs somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. Inhon promises that these models will land in the Taiwanese market by June this year. However, whether or not they will be made available in U.S. and other parts of the world, is unknown for now.
