Gigabyte X11: The World’s Lightest Ultrabook

Tablet computers and netbooks for over 3 years have been the single most powerful yet portable machines on the market in terms of accessing media and browsing the internet. Each of these products have their downsides though; tablets do not feature a dedicated keyboard except through an accessory and they are app focused, and netbooks are awfully underpowered something which has had them lose out to smartphones and tablets in recent years which rock quad-core processors.

The Ultrabook, then, can be considered as a bridge between the two especially ones with a touch screen. With Windows 8 around the corner, they are all set to grab consumer attention and sell like a hot cake during 2013.

Before the above happens and in the meantime, though, let us introduce you to the lightest 11.6″ Ultrabook in the world. Called the Gigabyte X11, this Ultrabook weighs a staggering 975g which is around 300g more than an Apple iPad, despite being significantly more powerful with the obvious

Have not ever heard about this ultra book. This seems to be very light and effective too, thanks for this review Jakk.

It can be an alternative to an Apple iPad, but in my opinion, I’d still go for the iPad (much cheaper!). You can actually buy a separate keyboard for the iPad (if that’s what’s only missing feature on it).On the other hand, the Gigabyte x11 has either a core i5 or i7 processor so that’s really cool! Thanks for sharing!
