What is the average weight of a SATA hard drive for desktops of 3.5" form factor. I think they make up for most of the weight inside the cabinet. Is it usually over 2.2 pounds (1 Kg)??

This Samsung drive is pretty common these days. Can't imagine they vary enormously...

625g, according to the mfr web site.

Over 1 kg? Probably not much more than 0.5 kg.
