We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Steve, who wants to shed weight but retain power for his next mobile computer. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm a professional motion graphics editor looking for a laptop to take on the road with me. While I like the idea of a Haswell-powered machine, I'm really looking for a machine with proper discrete graphics. Is there an Ultrabook or really light laptop that marries both? Thanks!"

Our first thought was to look at Lenovo's W-Series, which offers a 2GB Quadro K2000M on the higher-end models and weighs in at a comparatively svelte 2.61kg. If, however, you want power and the ability to sneakily game while on planes, then there's one of Alienware's 14-inch units, which offer a GeForce GT750M and a weight of 2.7kg. Finally, you could always break the bank with a Retina Macbook, which offers a GeForce GT650M as a build-to-order option but weighs a relatively slender 1.02kg. That's three from us, we bet the Engadget Community can find you something even lighter.
