Lightweight in memory consumption/ memory footprint/ how much KDE use the memory.
Not the harddrive
There have been several comparisons done by KDE developers that show KDE4 using less memory than KDE3 equivalents.
Considering I can run KDE4 plasma-netbook interface on a laptop with only 512 MB of RAM, watchign XviD videos in Dragon, using Phonon-VLC via PulseAudio, accessing files over wifi via NFS, without dropping frames, tells me that KDE4 is not "resource hungry" or "bloated". (Kubuntu 10.something with KDE 4.4 or 4.6. The laptop has since been retired and replaced with a Windows XP station running XBMC, but it served us well for many years.)
