As a comparison, a Lenovo X220 with 6-cell is 1.45kg/3.5lbs. That's a whopping 470grams less. In other words a 2560P weights 32.4% more than a X220. Removing the optical drive would shave off 140grams. So the 2560P is still going to be 330grams heavier with the same drive configuration.
If they include a Thunderbolt and mSATA port, IPS LCD option and made it slimmer and lighter then it will steal the Thunder from the X220. As it is now they've made it fatter and heavier than the previous generation. It's pretty though.

does the 2710/30/40p slim battery works with the 2760p?
Looks interesting --- I'm wanting to update my old Lenovo X300. Without a similar new Lenovo, seems like the Lenovo X220, HP 2650p and whatever the new Sony Z turns out to be are the main candidates. I wish we could find out a bit faster what all the business class SB ultraportable options really are.
