How heavy is the Speck Case for MBA?

Can anyone tell me whether speck case will add noticeable weight to the MBA? i'm thinking of either getting a speck case or invisible shield.

Its light. Not sure what to use as a point of reference but it weighs less than a magazine I'd say.

I have the Speck case on both of my MBAs and yes it does make it slightly thicker and weights a bit more. I would suggest a hard case as InvisibleShield does not protect against dings. For example, if you accidentally drop the power plug on the laptop, it will make a dent. I would suggest Amazon for whatever you decide to get as that's where I bought mine.
