Gigabyte unveils X11 Ultrabook as thinnest, lightest Ivy Bridge laptop on Earth
The Gigabyte X11 has finally been unveiled officially in Taiwan, and it now unofficially holds the record of thinnest and lightest Ultrabook on the planet. It measures a mere 16.5mm at its thickest point and 3mm at its thinnest, and yet it manages to pack unspecified 3rd-generation Intel processors (which of course translates to Ivy Bridge), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD storage, and an 11.6-inch 1366×768 LED-backlit LCD screen. As thin as it is, the Gigabyte X11 still includes provisions for wired Ethernet as well as USB 2.0 and 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1.3MP webcam, mini DisplayPort, and card reader. It will become available with varying versions of Windows 7 pre-installed and will cost $999 to $1,299. There’s no word on an official release date (or regional availability) just yet, but expect to hear more about the Gigabyte X11 right around when Computex 2012 hits in Taipei, Taiwan.
