How much do you want it to weigh? What would you be happy with?
The new iPad will most likely be a little less heavy knowing Apple will most definitely not create a heavier iPad. That is one thing that would hinder sales a bit IMO.
I would presume the iPad 5 would something around 500-525g, giving a leverage of 100g for the retina and 125g for the bigger screen, ( compared to the mini).
Reasons for such a drastic drop
New design, reduced dimensions
GF/2 Display tech
IGZO should help reduce glass thickness
Thinner / Lighter Battery
Smaller sized SoC, as well as other internal parts.
The iPad 3/4 was heavier and slightly thicker than the iPad 2.
