Default Good lightweight case?

This case is stylish, lightweight, great cooling, easy to work with, and from newegg; the NZXT Lexa:

I have it and it's very light (12.8 lbs). It's rather large, but light due to having an aluminum frame. Search for "NZXT Lexa Reviews" in Google if you like it.

P.S. - My connection is about to die. I've been trying to respond for 10 minutes.

How About This one ASPIRE X-Sonic ATXA4KW-AL It isn't black but different is always good. I couldn't find out how much it weight's but it is aluminium so should be pretty light.

And they do make it in black and Aspire calls it super light weight

Antec Super Lanboy

I've got this case and it's very light. It weighs about as much as a Dell laptop with everything in it. It comes with a strap too, if you're a lanner.

Try the Aspire X-Plorer, it weighs only 17 pounds. It's what I have and it's awesome. They only cost like $60 (USD)
