It is probably safe to say that not many people would have heard of the computer brand Inhon, but that is all about to change because the Taiwan based computer maker has just released details for the Blade 13 Carbon laptop it weighs in at just 1.9 pounds and is an amazing 10.7 mm thick! Before the launch of the Blade 13 it was the Lavie X by NEC that claimed to be the thinnest laptop in the world at just 12.8 mm, but the Blade 13 beats that by a massive 2 mm and yet this wafer thin laptop still manages to boast some serious specs too, which is just crazy when you think of the size of it.
The Blade 13 comes with a smart thirteen inch screen that offers a 1080p display with a 1600 x 900 of pixel resolutions. It will be running on the latest Microsoft Windows 8 operating system and there is a choice of processor from the Intel Core i5 or Core i7 CPU range. Other features include the 4 GB of RAM memory and a choice from either a 128 GB or a 256 GB solid state drive (SSD) for storage purposes.
That is all of the details that are available at the moment, but the question that is going to be on everyone’s lips, will be just how slim can a laptop go or is 10 mm the limit? Maybe we will have to wait for the next generation laptops to see, but less than 10 mm is a very small space to house all of that hardware required to make a decent laptop.
Once this slim laptop goes on sale buyers can expect to be forking out around $1,400 for it when it is launched in June. But when you consider the specs and features available that is probably a fair price to pay for it, if you can get your hands on one outside of Taiwan.
