Apologies if thi sis the incorret area for this question.

I've noticed that as I copy data/install programs on my laptop, the weight of the laptop increases. I have a bad back and am medically limited in the amount of weight I can carry so I need to be very careful not to inflict injury upon myself.

I have also noticed my Xbox feels heavier as well (the more games I save or purchase from arcade). I generally don't travel with my Xbox so that is not an issue for me, but note that I am having the same results.

My ask, what is the weight/file ration? So for example, how many GB's = 6oz? I dread the day I need a dolly to commute to work with my laptop.

Thanks in advance!

If you want to lighten your Windows PC, simply delete your system32 folder. It's mostly unwanted crap, and it'll reduce the weight dramatically...

Leave the laptop in the sun a few hours it will shed some water-weight.

Or, for faster results, preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 F), place laptop on an open rack and bake for 15-20 minutes. Should to the trick nicely

I've tried that once I found that 300 F works a little better but it could be do to elevation. You can also use a toaster oven if you happen to own a netbook or an ultra portable.

This is so friggin’ stupid. Ever own a dog? Keep feeding it and never take it on walks and it gets fat? This should sound familiar, tubby.

That’s what internet cafes are for. They’re like dog parks.

1GB is actually more like 497.62g and if you zip your files, it reduces file weight by about 5g for each 100MB.
