Big screens and light weight do not usually go hand in hand.

I use a ThinkPad X230 with 12 inch screen and no DVD. It weighs just under 3 pounds, is very powerful and can do anything and all I need to do. It is really easy to carry around.

The machines I see 14 inches and over are 4 1/2 pounds in weight or more.

All I can really suggest is picking a model or two that you like and look at the weight specification.

That is a tough one as John Hurst explained, you would have to pay premium price for a laptop that size. For ultra portability I find 11''-13" screen sizes are the sweet spot. The surface pro 3 is a nice one but it falls short on the screen size you're are looking for being at 12". The other best option I could think of for the size you're are looking for is X1 Carbon from Lenovo also Fujitsu have some nice lightweight ultra portable laptops.

Note: I read that Intel new chips sizing up at 14nm  would allow them to make lighter and more efficient laptops. Of course you would have to wait a while, on sheet it looks very impressive.
