    We just arrived back from our 1 week trip to Lake Vermillion, Tower, Minnesota, 600 something miles away from our home in Indiana. In one of my posts from I believe August 4 I asked "how can I package it to bring on vacation." I decided to go with the answer "put a pillow case over it, the iMac is sturdy itself." That idea worked well and costed 0 bling bling. Well, the cabin was actually really dirty even though it was visibly clean and spotless. I have a lot of cleaning of the keys. Or it may have been from the truck. This feels like a smoker's computer. That is not the toughness part of it. The iMac survived. We went through flatlands, prairies, ear-popping hills, and rocky roads. The thing survived, along with no speed lost.

    Here is a bad Photoshop drawing of how I put it (iMac sitting on seat like a human being, buckled up, facing the front)


    So yeah. I probably won't bring it next year, because it just got dirty and I didn't use it a lot. Well, I played some San Andreas and edited photos. Hopefully I can sell this and buy a Macbook Pro 13 2.53 on X-Mas because I really really need the portability.

    Thank you guys so much to whoever answered my older thread. :)

    Good nite.

    I would not have done that. But I'm glad that it survived the journey.

    I've moved my iMac several times and always used the original box and there have been no problems. I wouldn't do it like you did :eek:
