This answer is best answered by those who have been given an official laptop and also hold a home laptop at their homes. I have a Macbook Pro from my office which weighs less than a kilogram, doesn't lag and comes with a very good battery backup. My office is quite far from my home and before the lockdown, I used to travel 2 hours one side to reach my office from home and vice versa. So it becomes very important to have a laptop with as less weight as possible but still be perfect for a software developer like me. So yes, you need an ultra-thin laptop for your work so that it is comfortably carried while gives high performance.
For the home, on the other hand, weight is not that big an issue since I don't have to carry my laptop for long distance but I do need performance since I do like to do gaming in my free time and also since I do blogging, I need a laptop where I can install software and try them out without worrying about any lag. So I bought my Lenovo Ideapad 330 almost a year and half back. It weighs nearly 2 kgs but gives me no reason to complain about anything else. It has great performance and has Windows 10 original installed on it which means with I am equipped with both Mac and Windows laptops which makes my life easy as a blogger.
