  3. I told my cw-orkers for years that my laptop was heavier with a full charge. All kidding aside, I think that the problem is his excess RAM. I suggest removing the second SIMM.

  5. In fact, Yes "datas" (in fact eletrons)weight something as it's physical… but we cannot easily measure their weight .

    But the weight doesn't increase with the amount of data… as there is no increase of data, just a change of state…
