    I am having my iMac 27 5K shipped to the Apple store near me so I don't have to muss with the "being at home" problem.

    My Apple store is in an area where parking is not super close.

    How heavy is the iMac when in box and how luggable is it? Is there a handle? Is it reasonable for someone to carry back a few blocks?

    Don't know which store you are referring to but most Apple Stores will/can let customers drive up to the loading door to p/u their big boxes. In fact I've never seen anyone lugging an iMac or any other big box out of the stores near me -- all are either in a major mall or strip mall. I think they all go out the back door.

    But to answer your question, yes, it would be quite awkward to lug even a 21.5" iMac a few blocks not to mention a 27". If you can't drive up to the loading door at the very least ask to borrow a hand truck so you can wheel it out. Remember you are not the first and only person to buy a 27" iMac there. They must have ways for people to easily get it to their car.

    UPS delivery slip said 13.8kg on my 27" that arrived yesterday. The outer cardboard box has no handle to carry it.

    Thanks, that's the clincher.

    Most Apple Stores will send someone to carry it to your car for you if you ask.

    The outer box is heavy with no handle, but if you take it out of the outer box, there's a handle on the white iMac box and very easy to carry.

    Yeah, I recall trying to walk out of my my best buy carrying an imac 27 for the miles long walk home. I was damn lucky, that some kind soul offered me a ride home. Glad I wasn't robbed, and it didn't rain, and so on. There is a handle.
