That's difficult question since most manufacturs don't post weights of their lower-end bikes. That being said when I bought my Specialized RH Comp Disk for $700 it weighed in at 30lbs. After a wheelset and post/handlebar/stem upgrade it was down to under 26.
BTW...if I may ask...I'm going through your posts...what's the big obsession with weight. Some of your posts say you want a sub-25 lbs hardrock. A "lightweight XC" that can take abuse. The frame will be able to take abuse...but the components won't.
