NEC LaVie Ultrabook
All PC makers claim their Ultrabooks are thin and light, but NEC really raised the bar with its LaVie Z. One of the lightest Ultrabooks showcased at IDF 2012, the NEC LaVie Z weighs in at super-light 1.93 pounds and measures just 0.59 inches thin. But don't let its ultra-slender design fool you; this little guy still packs in a 1.9GHz Ivy Bridge Core i7 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and plenty of screen real estate with a 13.3-inch display.
There's no word from NEC on U.S. availability or pricing, but the LaVie Z sells today for about $1,600 in Japan.
