ProBook 470 G3 Weight Saver

HP Recommended

Hello Everyone -

 

I have a ProBook 470 G3.  I'd like to reduce the weight as much as possible and I saw in the specifications that there's an option for a weight saver to use in place of the optical drive.  Since I almost never use the optical drive I'd like to get the weight saver, but can't find one.  Can this be bought?  I recall asking HP support about this, but not getting much of an answer.  Thanks for any help.

It simply is a piece of plastic to cover the ODD (Optical Disc Drive) when you remove the ODD, that's all. You may save around 100 grams.  The followning option may be lighter:

 

Please use Google and search for "CD/DVD face plate/bezel" you can have many choices.

 

Regards.
