    Hi everyone,

    Im looking for the Apple Thunderbolt Display box dimension and weight.
    Could someone who knows or has one be able to measure it and let me know?

    I want to buy one, but will need to transport it in a month and half time, so need to know if I could courier.

    Thanks

    Mine should be delivered by 10:30 am on Friday. I'll be happy to measure it for you then.

    From experience buying iMacs, if you pick it up from an Apple retail store, you get it in a pretty box with a handle. If you order it from the Apple Online Store... you get the same retail box, but it fits exactly inside of a 2nd brown shipping box. I am saying this to let you know that if you want to ship in in a month... you may want to order it online to get the extra box made for shipping.

    If the box size still is of any concern to you, it's very big. :) It's around 75cm wide, by maybe 60cm high and 35cm wide. Roughly. My own box is stowed away, just because it's so damn large so I can't check.

    If per chance you have a 27" iMac, the shipping boxes are identical in dimension.

    It's big and heavy, but it is courierable - I successfully lugged it out of the Apple Store to the parking lot and from my garage to my apartment.

    I would like some help regarding the thunderbolt display as well and didn't want to create another thread... as i just have a quick question, can i take a thunderbolt display as hand-luggage on an airplane? or how could i take it on an airplane?

    I know its slightly off topic but thanx anyways

    No wai, that's unpossible. There's no chance you could fit something that big in either the overhead compartment or under your seat. They won't even let you bring it aboard the aircraft, that I guarantee you. :)

    Cathy,

    In US measurements, the dimensions of the double boxed ATD (as received from the Apple Online Store) is 30" X 24" X 10". The weight is 35 lbs.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for letting me know. Seems like its almost same box as the iMac. It seems like it is definitely postable.

    Thanks alot and hope you enjoy it.

    It's Identical

    I just measured my 27" box.....Dimensions are the same as posted above, weight is right too, although I'd expect the display to be lighter than the iMac as it has no innards so to speak.

    It's a big box for sure, not something you'd want to be carrying around with you....My UPS guy moaned like crazy when he delivered mine:D

    I just bought my daughter one of these for christmas.

    http://www.ilugger.com/product/detail.cfm?nid=1460&pid=40029

    She schlepps her 27" iMac back and forth from our house up to Canada where she goes to school several times/year... and her original shipping box is falling apart. I was actually pretty impressed in the quality and ease of putting the iMac into the case... and having wheels and carrying straps makes the man-handling of it a lot easier.

    Yes

    But this thread has pretty much run it's course, th OP has the info required. That 27" case is amazing, but I won't be carting my iMac around anytime soon, I am lucky enough to have my MBA and MBP for that, and the two of them in a messenger case are quite weighty, mostly due to the pro.
