2.5 Kg = 5.5 lbs., which ain't exactly light weight for a 15.6" laptop, IME.
Well it ain't exactly mobile workstation heavy either :p
I'm just glad MSI done away with the lamborghini plus disco-lights design :)

After their GS70 model with dual fans, razor thin, and about 5.5pounds with a 765m I have no idea how they can possibly do better (except release a 15 and 13 inch version probably). I guess premium comes with a premium price tag because those things are worth two of these guys put together.
