    I am sitting in the airport right now going to Cali for the week. I bought a whole smurfbox setup with kb and mouse and the matching display for $5 on ebay. How do I get this back without being completely destroyed. I have come to the realization that I might have to give the monitor away to one of you who lives in LA.

    Now im here in OC. Yes, a smurfbox is a powermac g3. Its the same color as a smurf. I really want to take this back. Does anyone here have any experience flying with a whole desktop setup, including a CRT?

    Uhhh, that CRT will be nasty to fly with, along with the whole thing. I say you ship it home, that way you don't worry about luggage baseball :D

    Dump the CRT. I don't know about where you live, but here (in Portland) you can find CRTs on the street (or free on Craigslist). As for the smurfbox, a slightly larger box with towels and t-shirts stuffed around it should do nicely; as long as everything is seated properly, you should have no worries about damage.

    I have plenty of CRTs at home. Its just that it is the matching cinema display. It just looks really good as a set. Towels and a box were a good idea. I just can't rationalize spending a lot of money doing this.
