Never heard of Inhon? That might change with the Taiwanese computer maker’s Blade 13 Carbon laptop, which it claims is now the world’s thinnest and lightest. Tipping the scale at 870g (1.9 pounds) and 10.7mm, the company says it undercuts NEC’s 12.8mm Lavie X by a whopping 2mm, while nipping the 875g LaVie Z by 5g. There are still weighty specs crammed into the package, however: a Core i5 or i7 CPU, 1080p screen, 128GB or 256GB SSD and 4GB of RAM. If you’re looking for that kind of unencumbered power, the Carbon will also lighten your pocketbook to the respectable tune of $1,350, while a dialed-back 1,600 x 900 fiberglass version — still radically lean at 12.6mm and 1,195g (2.6 pounds) — will run a grand or so. These models will arrive in Taiwan in June, with no sign that it’ll come to relieve us overburdened laptop users stateside.
