    Or rather does 601g feel much lighter than 680g? I wonder if most ppl will even notice...

    I think that when you get to such a low weight, a little difference will make a difference. We will soon find out for certain though!

    yes - yes - yes

    Find something that weighs 0.2 lbs. Hold it in your right hand about 8-12 inches from your face. Do the same thing with your left hand while holding nothing...weight for about 45 minutes. Ask yourself, "Self, which hand is more tired? Right or Left?".

    I am guessing 0.2 lbs will have an effect on your answer.

    ...

    I think that is about the weight of a candy bar. Likely it will be tough to notice a differance cdrom the ipad to the ipad 2 however if you went from the ipad 2 back to the old ipad it would be more noticable

    0.2 lbs is the same as 4 ipod nanos...Apple subtracted 4 ipod nanos from the iPad 1 and out popped an iPad 2...

    0.2lbs equals 3.2oz which is the exact weight of 16 Quarters (25¢). Hold 16 quarters in your hand and tell me if you feel the weight, I certainly do. That, combined with the much thinner design will give the device a much smaller/lighter feel.

    0.2 lbs. is:

    1. A 13.33% decrease from iPad 1's 1.5 lbs.
    2. 1/3 of an Apple TV 2
    3. 2/3 of an iPhone 4
    4. Around 65 paperclips.
    5. 700 calories of exercise, if the 0.2 lbs were body fat you wanted to burn.

    .2lb is only noticeable to people who think "Thin" is actually a good trend to continue.
