With personal computers getting more and more portable every year, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is attempting to get a leg-up on the competition by incorporating ultra light-weight materials to make it the least strenuous laptop on the market.

This 14-inch 'Ultrabook' weighs in at a little under three pounds, making it less difficult to lift than most tea kettles or small free-weights. Constructed from carbon fiber, which has become increasingly popular in automotive design due to its ultra-light yet durable properties, Lenovo claims it will be the lightest 'Ultrabook' available once it hits the mass market.

The computer also features embedded 3G connectivity for instant Internet access as well as a rapid-charge battery that can be powered up to 80 per cent capacity in only 35 minutes.
