If I substitute hard drive of Macbook Pro with Solid state (flash) drive, will that reduce the weight?

I am planning to buy Macbook Pro. However, I am little concerned about its weight. If I substitute its hard drive with Solid state (flash) drive, will that reduce the weight of Macbook pro 13"

    It might reduce the weight slightly, but only by a few grams. The hard drive does not significantly contribute to the weight of a computer. A solid-state drive offers other advantages, such as higher durability and higher speed. The computer will boot faster and programs will open faster with a solid-state drive. If you need the lightest possible computer, the MacBook Air might be a good choice, although it has no CD drive and lacks several other features of the MacBook Pro.
