Best Buy have the dimensions and weight listed; however it would be most helpful if the shipping weight of the complete package was also included in product speficfication.

I have to admit I can't quite figure out why anyone would need to know the shipping weight, but I'm sure there could be a good reason why someone would need to know this. Would anyone else need this information listed?

Reason: International shoppers, who have items shipped to US adresses (most cases free of charge), will need to have items shipped from the US to their respective country. This last move will incur charges based on weight. The entire package weight will be needed to accurately calulate the cost.

@kemaru I had a feeling it had to do with re-shipping the item. I should point out that we do not knowingly fulfill orders on BestBuy.com that are exclusively intended to be forwarded outside the country. This is considered Freight-forwarding, and is specifically prohibited on BestBuy.com.

Thanks.. Had no idea.. Makes sense now... Is it a US standard, or does it make sense shopping around for another store?

@kemaru, I have no idea if this is a standard in the U.S.
