Taiwanese computer maker Gigabyte is taking laptop case design to the next level with its new X11; what the company is calling the world’s first all-carbon-fiber notebook. Thanks to the light weight and high strength of the material, the 11.6-inch X11 weighs just over 2 pounds (975g) — 105 grams shy of Apple’s 11.6-inch MacBook Air. This makes the X11 the lightest 11.6-inch laptop on the market, although to put things in perspective, Sony's 11.1-inch Vaio X beats it by half a pound. The machine will have an Ivy Bridge processor, a 128GB SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity when it launches in July for between $999 and $1,299, but Gigabyte hasn't come out with any more detailed specs yet. We’ll be sure to let you know when we get a better idea of the whole package.
