It's... pretty big. I can't measure mine right now, I'm not where I have access to it. But it's quite large, and very heavy. It's been ages since I have flown, so I can't say much about that. It would likely be much cheaper to ship it, I would think, but perhaps not

They're large machines. I would just buy one when I got home, or have it shipped directly to the desired location.

Get it shipped it's roughly 4' x 1' x 3' high and weighs 10kg.

I had to lug it 500 yds from the car park to the Apple store when it went to have it's hard disk replaced and that was quite far enough.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

+1, have it shipped. i had to carry mine with 2 hands leaving the store, and it dragged on the floor. haha. it wont fit under your seat or in the overhead, so you'd have to check it for sure.

almost forgot i had this picture lying around. snapped it before moving it to school.
my sister owns the 21.5". it doesn't appear to be much bigger, but it is.

-27" iMac. Core 2 Duo, 1TB HD, 4GB Ram.
-13" MacBook Pro. Core 2 Duo, 250GB HD, 4GB Ram.
-iPhone 3GS 32GB.
-AirPort Extreme.

Lots of advice above. However, from your post I'm assuming you're wanting to buy it from the US and take it back with you to the UK. Have you thought about how much VAT and possible import tax you would have to pay when bringing it on home? It may wind up being the same or little difference in price if you bought it in the UK - and it would certainly be much less of a drag getting it home.
