    Is the weight as advertised reasonably accurate on this thing? According to the Specs I've seen this thing should weigh about 4.3 lbs w/o DVD Drive... that's lighter than the Fujitsu 4210... which only has a 12.1 screen. Anybody who has one have you placed it on a scale to weigh it?

    I have a R1 and my brother has a 4210, just by doing the simple heft test, the R1 feels a tad lighter, and the 4210 feels more solid. I think its because the R1 uses a magnesium shell while the 4210 has a more conventional shell.

    The W7j (which is the R1's 13.3" notebook brother) goes 4.3 lbs with it's 6 cell battery and it's internal drive. The hinge and screen add a bit if weight and thickness to the unit... so it's completely fair to say that without it's drive it's about the same weight as the W7..... even with it's drive it's still under 5.

    The R1 has a magnesium lid and a carbon fiber chassis....
