    With reference to the '6th Element' in the pre-announcement, we suspect the Notebook to be constructed from a new alloy, such as the lithium-magnesium alloy employed by NEC on its latest LaVie Z 13.3 inch Ultrabook
    Really? I was thinking carbon fibre. That is the 6th element on the periodic table after all.

    Mind you it's about time someone cracks carbon nanotube production.

    How long before the carbon fibre iPhone rumours start? This laptop is going to cost the end of the earth, for Lamborghini or Ferrari drivers only. Big thumbs up for Gigabyte though if they are pushing the boundaries, fed up with Apple pretending they are the designers of the world and everything in it.

    I wonder what the weight figure is going to be. Sony have been sub 1kg before with the X505 and their 8.9" ones were lighter again.

    Copper nano tubes and Bismuth nano tubes. Two materials that really need better acronyms.

    As a chemist it does make you smile when you read about them, but then again I'm still immature enough to laugh at the acronym HOMO and the phrase ring strain during lectures.

    And on topic,I hope that the 6th element is a reference to a carbon based design and not just crappy marketing spiel.

    It's funny because a lot of Apples great designs and tech (e.g. siri) are from companies they've swallowed up as far as I've seen, they themselves don't really do anything special, just throw it all together.

    Discovered the 6th element?

    I think Gigabyte may have been beaten to the punch by a few millennia
