does anyone know anything about a change in the weight of the macbooks? two of my friends just got macbooks and one of them feels a few pounds heavier than the other...makes no sense

I had to take my macbook in for a hard drive replacement a few months back.
When I got it back it felt much heavier.

However, I checked it against other people's macbooks and there was no change.

I think its all in your head.

In answer to your question, google tells me that the original macbook weighed 5.14 pounds and the apple site has the new macbook at 5.1 pounds. So no, there's been no change.
