Hey there :) ,
Currently I have a T410 Thinkpad (1st Gen i5 M560 @ 2.67GHz ,4GB RAM, Sam 750 Evo 120 GB SSD @240MBPS :( , 1440x900 Reso)( Refurbished :p )
But its So darn heavy :( ! It has that extra big battery butt too, makes it even more heavier..

So guys, please help me pick a comparatively new and light laptop model. Hopefully a Thinkpad.
Thanks a lot!!

You either want a T410s, T420s or T430s. After that they get pricey. Those are 14" screens. If you want to go smaller X201, X220 and X230 featuring 12" screens and around 3 pounds. The S series above is around 4lbs. I collect thinkpads, long story but I have them all!!!

The X201 is the same generation as your T410. It weighs 3lbs and is extremely thin and light. One generation newer is the x220 with the Sandy Bridge i5/i7 processor.

Oh, consider a refurbished/new Dell E7470/E7480. Usually you can find those for $500-$600 on eBay, including a 256GB SSD, 1080p IPS display and an I5. Got like 5 of these (not all together) to friends and family and another one for myself (already an "old" E7470). They all come with around 3 years warranty
