That's because he was worried that the slightest IT person would injure themselves. It's all about exposure. If they go with the lightest devices, no one can hold them accountable for staff having to carry all that weight and injure themselves.

IMHO, the best way to get around that would be to have three different models on the catalogue and let staff pick the one that suits them best. Then they choose. They make the choice around what they are comfortable enough to carry.
