    Again, just a hunch. I would love to be wrong, very wrong, on this hunch.

    I expect it to be thinner and slightly lighter. I think the current iPads are light enough.

    You are guessing that it won't be as light as say 550 gms or so? I hope you are wrong!

    I expect it to at least a little bit lighter, so you are incorrect. It will be at least as light as I expect.

    I imagine it will be lighter, but... How much were we expecting?

    I'm expecting remarkable things from Apple with iPad 5. Lightness will be just one distinguishing quality over everything else in the market.

    There have been enough leaks with rumored lightness to the point of folks not believing it would actually be but time will tell.

    Cutting out that ugly bezel will no doubt see a difference in weight. Probably will also make the iPad much easier to damage too. iPhone 5 requires a case due to how soft it is.

    Rumors are 25% lighter, which pegs it around the 500g mark.

    That would be a lovely weight!
