I think it's more like 1.6lb vs 2.2. Yes heavier but still manageable. I was given a Tegra2 tab with 4G to play with a week ago and while I have used it as a book reader for a bit and did some web access and youtube watching on the go. I haven't really done much with it and I miss not being able to stream Netflix (I know you can mes around and get the non-honeycomb Netflix app to work but it's a pain and it didn't work in this particular tab I was testing).
The battery life is a bit weak but do you really need 10 hours of use while on a long plane trip (the W500 will definitely last 6 hours if you turn off Wifi and put the brightness to low since they always turn off the cabin light for a portion of the flight)? I fly to Asia from the U.S. quite often and I don't really use the Tab or laptop for more than a few hours even on a 14 hours flight and I always have access to a power outlet. How much actual time do you need between the meals and taking a short nap? And there's always at least one or 2 shows worth watching on the inflight entertainment system.
