    Hi all, could someone do a huge favor for me? I need to find out how much the low end macbook (not the new aluminum one) weighs in its original shipping box.

    A friend wants me to buy her one from here, but needs the shipping weight.

    If someone has recently purchased the $999 model, if you can weigh it for me in the original box, I'd really appreciate it :)

    Thanks!

    This might not help, but an online store like Amazon might have the weight info.

    The UPS box for my white macbook says 4.20Kg, but that's including the outer box they put the macbook box in.

    Amazon also puts it into another box, that's why.

    Oops, I was looking at the listing for the new MacBook. Amazon lists the $999 at 9.2 lbs...which essentially matches your 4.2 kg figure.

    When Apple ships these in their brown cardboard boxes, the weights are listed with the shipper at either 9 or 10 lbs.

    Not sure why there would be a difference, but these are number taken from 2 recent orders I had placed. Of course the actual Macbook by itself would be less.

    Now I remember why there was a weight difference. The 10lb box was for the Macbook 2.2 model and the 9lb was for the 2.4 model.

    Thanks for the replies everyone...I was doing sample quotes using a 10 pound average, so that sounds like right around where the weight needs to be.

    Thanks again :)
