From users experience, how much more weight & size does new A57 have?
Size weight of A37 seems like 20% less...significant?
Value of less pixels size in LCD?
For a newby to SLR, A37 seems like a better start.
How good is kit lens? Shouyld I budget for a better lens & buy camera only?

It boils down to size and handling. Try both out. I have an A55 and an A65 which are the same respective sizes as the A37 and 57. For a walk around I like the A57 with a super-zoom lens because it's easier to carry. I put my best lenses on the A65.

As far as the kit it's certainly worth the extra $100 but personally I'd buy the body only and get a better lens.
