    A quick question I'm sure someone on here knows the answer to: How much does the iPad 2 package (unopened) weigh?

    I know the answer, but I'm curious why you want to know?

    (it just seems like an odd thing to have to know)

    I can only think of 3 reasons. 1. To properly estimate shipping. 2. To add the correct weight to an empty box for a scam. 3. To determine the correct weight in fear of having been scammed.

    The reason I asked was because in my head I was thinking it was option #2. I may be wrong for thinking that, but like I said earlier, it just seemed like an odd thing to have to know.

    First thing I though of. People would weigh the un-opened box then fill it with sand.....:mad:

    In order to avoid being an accessory to a potential crime, no one is going to give him the correct answer right?

    Since the iPad 2 itself weighs 1.35 pounds I would guess the shipping weight is right about 2 pounds total. If you're looking to estimate shipping costs I would round up to 3 pounds THEN add the packaging weight.

    Thank you. To answer the question, I bought an iPad 2 that I'm auctioning off, and needed to know the shipping weight so I could figure out delivery costs in advance. (I then realized the difference between 2 lbs and 3 lbs was about a dollar, so it didn't much matter, but better to be exact)

    I get charged for 2 lbs when I ship via USPS. I ship with heavy weight brown wrapping paper and packing tape.
