    How big is the box that a MacBook Pro is shipped in?
    Can someone please post the dimensions for the box that Apple.com sends a MacBook Pro in? I am talking about the brown box, not the pretty box that contains the actual device.

    Thanks.

    DO you know the dimensions of the "pretty box" that it comes in? Add about .5 to each dimension.

    The box that Apple ships them in is just a thin paperboard box(think cereal box) that fits over the "pretty" box. So shipping dimensions are about the same as the box that it comes it.

    Are you talking about how much Apple will charge to ship it to you?

    If you live in the US, shipping is free.

    Thanks. I am getting it shipped from another state, so I'm trying to calculate shipping via UPS.

    So what is the dimensions to the pretty box ?

    Amazon states this, but I thats the dimensions to the actual notebook.
    Product Dimensions: 15.4 x 10.4 x 1 inches ; 6.8 pounds

    MacBook Pro shipping dimensions
    The MacBook Pro box itself is only 16" x 12" x 3" - but it comes in a shipping box, which (in my case anyway) was 18 1/4" x 14" x 5 1/2" and weighed about 10 lbs.

    The real question is "Did the box grow (or shrink) in that three years?"
