When I first hauled out the Acer Aspire 8950G from the backpack, I almost dropped it, not because it was that heavy, but because it was lighter than expected. This massive (I hesitate to say "notebook") desktop replacement system sports an 18.4-inch, true 1080p LCD panel. At 8 pounds, 5 ounces without the power brick, it's lighter than some smaller systems that have been through the lab here. Even with the 120 watt power supply, the weight falls just a little short of 10 pounds.
