    Can you post a link to that thread? I'm rather puzzled.

    Link would be handy. I guess that piece of glass could maybe weigh that much?

    I am happy to confirm against my haters wishes that yes the 15" Badboy matte option is lighter.

    Wow, that's a heavy piece of glass then, probably why the screen closes under it's own weight. Almost makes me want to attempt to pull it off with a toilet plunger or something.

    On the flip side us glossy users have a bonus half a pound screen protector! :p

    I don't actually believe the glass weighs 1/2 pound??? Does anyone believe that? It might be heavier, but there is no way Apple would do that... I once read that the lid portion of the glass unibody MBPs weighs less than it did before with plastic - I don't know how that changes the anti-glare option though. Would be nice to see exact details at Apple.com.

    Can someone post a picture of it on a scale of some sort, I really want to know this too.
    I know I am going to have a hard time not upgrading to a 13in MatteBook Pro if they ever come out with one.

    There has to be some forum members that have access to high quality scales.
    As far as I would think the glass can't weigh more than ~50g-100g (0.1-0.2 lbs)
