Here’s a quick rumor for you to take into the weekend. Looks like Toshiba may be working on the world’s lightest 13-inch laptop. It’s reported to weigh just 2.2 pounds, feature Intel’s new Core i3/5/7 processors, and come with something called a “super charged ion battery” that’s capable of recharging to 90% capacity within 10 minutes.

Information from the source website has been pulled, which is actually kind of a good sign that it irked someone at Toshiba. Nothing’s official, of course—no pricing, no launch date, etc.—but Engadget’s reporting that the machine will apparently have the aforementioned Intel chips, 4GB of RAM, and a standard 500GB hard drive or optional 512GB solid state drive.

Those specs, along with the jaw-dropping weight, along with the futuristic battery means that if this thing is real, it won’t be cheap.
