Re: 1 mm
Good point -- LG has the bragging rights at the moment. Technology has a tendency to transform minor advancements into huge benefits down the road.

On average, in 2010 a laptop would weigh in at 1.0 kg to 2.7 kg. However, currently the standard would be closer to 1.0 kg to 2.3 kg. A reduction of around 100 grams at present, thanks to LG's R&D, might enable for instance, the deployment of extra Li-ion polymer cells or compounded over time, it could enable the average laptop to weigh in at 500 grams to 1.5 kg.

< I do not know if 1 or 2 mm could really impact the weight of a laptop.> @Pedro, exactly. I suppose one can claimn some kind of bragging right for being the thinnest, but it wouldn't make that much practical difference.

Re: 1 mm
@ Ariella.  I agree. I do like the idea of my laptop to be much thinner.  I can imagine that sometime in the future laptop screens could be the width of a book cover.  I do not know if 1 or 2 mm could really impact the weight of a laptop.

1 mm
What a world we live in -- to start measuring mm for screen thickness! I'd think such a tiny difference wouldn't even be perceived by the casual observer.
