    Hi,

    would like to get this laptop but thinking of ways to reduce the weight of the 15" model to as close to 2kg or around 4.5lb as possible?

    here's what i thought
    replace HDD with SSD (for performance) approx -25g
    take out Optical drive approx -100g

    but the problem with taking out the optical drive is i need something to cover the slot opening, any suggestions? and other ideas to reduce weight..

    Cut a piece of grey/black foam into a strip and tape it on the inside to cover the small slit opening. Should look like the ODD is still there.

    I just picked up this adapter CentralComputers.com - 3.5MM Stereo To R/L+Microphone Cable Adapter today. The website doesn't have a picture yet. I was in the store to get more RAM and noticed the headset adapter - new item, the cashier hadn't noticed that this item was even in stock. It is very small and white (apple/ipod accessory style). Works great with my logitech dual plug headset in skype.

    I get the same issue. VLC runs as smooth as butter, though I prefer Media Player Classic Home Cinema. Anybody here know the cause and/or solution?
