How much do these Tablet PCs weigh? That’s a question that keeps bouncing around with mixed answers. I’m not sure my testing will clear it up much. Lenovo is saying that the ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC weighs in at 3.88lbs with the 8-cell battery. Other sources are saying it is more like 4.2lbs. Weighing the evaluation unit I have this morning, it tipped the scales at precisely 4lbs. For what it is worth the Lenovo X61 I am using weighs in at 4.2lbs.
The HP 2730p is listed as weighing 3.74lbs. Weighing it this morning it comes in at 3.80lbs.(Correction made, see comments for details.)
For what it is worth there you go.
