Yes, I remember wondering at the time why all that empty space. Even PC was built that way, mostly empty space inside big box

I recall a time when software documentation was transitioning to CD or online help (online as in on the computer, not yet the Internet). For quite a while to software boxes stayed large as though they were filled with goodies, yet only had a CD or two, quick start guides, warranty information and lots of empty space. I suspected a similar reasoning, although with physical size rather than weight.

The perception that value should be ascribed to weight is deeply rooted in human kind...and possibly has something to do with the weight of gold and the use of that metal as symbol of wealth and a medium of high-value exchange.

Interesting...you can consider building a class of products this way: the same functionality but different weights...the more heavy the gadget is the more expensive it should be ;-)

I could see the same in Hi-Fi CD players: a thick piece of metal, just to add weight.
