Is 21.5" new imac allowed as carry-on item? What is the size of box?
I had a relatively large carry-on (old-style HD tuner/DVD combo) that I had to carry onto the airplane. The flight attendants took the box and put it in a special locker. The iMac is bigger, however, and I think they will want you to check it.
Apple puts the size of the iMac at 20.8" wide and 17.7" tall. I would add a couple of inches to those dimensions and a thickness of at least 8" (the stand depth is 6.9").
Have you considered shipping the iMac to yourself instead of carrying it onto the airplane? Some people even do that for their luggage now!
24" x 19" with a depth from 8" at base to 5" Weight about 10 kilo
Now, I would say that was too large for carry-on, but being stuck trying to get on planes while someone attempts to load something the size of a piano into the overhead locker, you might get away with it.
An extra bag for most airlines is now $25+-, shipping your iMac is around $40. It's worth the extra $ to keep it from the baggage heaver's.
So, what do you advice? Should i try?
I live outside of USA, oversea country.
Is an extra bag solve this problem?
The brown box that covers the white box of the iMac was designed for air cargo.
