Inhon, a Taiwanese manufacturer of notebooks, has just unveiled the Blade 13 Carbon ultrabook. While the news of another ultrabook may not sound exciting, the Blade Carbon is something to get excited about, as it claims the title of thinnest and lightest notebook in the world.


Weighing in at just 870 grams, the 10.7mm thick (thin?) Blade 13 Carbon is more than 400 grams lighter than Apple's MacBook Air, and more than 6mm thinner. Inhon ditched the aluminum unibody idea in favor of carbon fiber, which resulted in a much thinner profile and the record weight listing.


Inhon will release the Blade 13 Carbon in several different configurations including models with Intel Core i5 and i7 low-voltage chips, 1080p 13-inch display and a 128GB or 256GB SSD. RAM is said to be limited to just 4GB, though. The Blade 13 Carbon will begin shipping in June at a price point of $1350. Unfortunately those of us state side will not get the chance to pick one (as yet) up as Inhon has no US distributors that we could find.
