    Laptops get down to about 3lbs for something like a MacBook Air: http://www.apple.com/macbookair/specs.html

    Of course at these lower weights you’re going to be dealing with smaller screen sizes too with units getting down to 10″ or 13″ screens.

    Laptop manufacturers generally call these “Ultralights” or “UltraPortables”.

    As far as performance goes, everyone’s definition of “high performance” is different so I can’t really give you a solid suggestion as I’m sure there are a lot of other variables going into your decision.

    Check out the latest offerings from Apple, Dell, Asus, Toshiba and Lenovo and consider your budget and needs. If possible go to a few stores to see how much screen size and keyboard feel as well.

    If you narrow things down to a handfull of models post a new question along with additional details on your needs and I can help out a little bit.
