Apple's finest 13" in 2005, sorry a 12". Weight, 4.6 pounds! Thickness.. 1.18", not horrible but it must be a solid aluminum block with a slot cut out for motherboard and a hole for the HDD... sheesh. http://lowendmac.com/pb2/12in-powerbook-g4-1.5-ghz.html
Toshiba Portege R200, 2005. 2.7 pounds, 12" laptop, 0.7" thick. That's what I'm talkin about! http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,1788138,00.asp?tab=Specs
Sony X505, 2004. http://reviews.cnet.com/Sony_VAIO_X505_series/4505-3121_7-30886049.html
And this is by no means exhaustive, nor the best I could find. Lenovo's Thinkpad X30 is from roughly 2005, probably weighs 3-3.5 pounds. Acer had Travelmate laptops way back then, some were fairly light. etc. etc.Edited by jrbroad77 - 5/10/12 at 5:12pm
