And it would be perfect if they can make it lightweight as in KDE3, and reduce memory consumption.

According to this reviewer, who offers video hard evidence in support of his statements, KDE4 is easily lightweight enough to run very smoothly, even on low-resource systems such as netbooks.

"I was able to install this on a 900 MHz netbook".

well it's intriquing.. Mine is asus 1215B (E-350, 2GB).
archlinux 32bit KDE 4.7.3 on it, and it's not so fast. But then, maybe the video card's the problem.
