Netbook or notebook? Dec 5, 2014

1200 € and 13" sounds like notebook.

Asus Zenbook, Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga/T440s, Apple MacBookAir/MacBook Pro

These would be those I'd have a look at.

I am searching for a really lightweight.

I have a macbook Pro but still to heavy.

Someone using one of them?

The ASUS seems to be the one I need...





Thanks

Weight of MacBook Pro Dec 5, 2014

Well, you didn't quantify your desired specs for weight. Just for your information: the current 13" MacBook Pro is a lot lighter than older models (1.57 kg vs. 2.04 kg), thanks to dropping the (useless) optical drive, better design etc. But if even the new one is too heavy for you, then there is the MacBook Air (1.34 kg). The 13" Asus Zenbook is 1.4 kg, so as you can see, we're talking of very similar weights here.

One of my favorites would be the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which has an even larger display (14"), yet only weighs 1.35 kg. However, it doesn't fit into your budget.
