    Has anybody taken a 17" unibody on a plane yet. Was just looking at Qantas regulations on laptops for international travel and it had the following statement:

    "Before x-raying, the laptop computer must be removed from its carry case and the battery removed from the laptop."

    Obviously, that's a problem for the 17" unibody. Has anybody had issues (or not) yet?

    They want you to remove the battery because there´s a potential cavity there, not because of power issues. In the 17" there is no easy accessible cavity.

    I have never, not once, been asked to remove the battery in my mbp 15" when going through security.

    I've never had to remove my battery from my 15" MBP. Actually, I can't even remember the last time I had to take it out of its sleeve!

    Me neither, and I've got 150+ flights with my laptop.
