Back in the day I lugged around a Dell 17-inch XPS system whose weight was a real factor in airports. I downsized from that to an Asus 15.6-inch Core-i7 and had to buy an extended-life battery that only added to the weight. I used a wheeled laptop case to deal with all the crap you need -- it's not just the weight of the laptop, but the power block, the cables, and whatever. Now I use an LG Gram-16 12thGen Core-i7 that has amazing battery life and weighs less than a kilo. It's fast, light, has a great screen, and was a reasonable price. VStudio runs in a flash so I can realistically do on-site development when needed.
