Just kidding, I'm pretty paranoid myself.
Yeah but I put the neoprene case in the bin and told him it was a laptop. He said that was fine and sent me through the metal detector. the case came out empty.yellow said:All the airports I've been through have TSA people yelling to take your laptops out and out them in a bin..
Which doesn't really make sense. I mean, you're sending it through an X-RAY MACHINE. One would think that the machine could see through the neoprene case without have to remove the laptop.yellow said:All the airports I've been through have TSA people yelling to take your laptops out and out them in a bin..
Given that I took my notebook through the scanner on sleep, I'd say that it's just fine. Or maybe it was turned off, hard to remember.Kingsly said:I am going to the airport in about an hour and am suddenly nervous about the x-ray machine cooking my MBP and external HDD.
Kingsly said:Well the x-ray didn't kill it, but the TSA guy took it out of the neoprene case and kind of half-threw it into a plastic bin to be x-rayed. I was pretty upset.
I do the same thing.Timepass said:Now when ever I fly I general use 3 bins. 1 for my laptop. 1 for my carry on (laptop bag) and then one that has my shoes, what ever in my pocket, watch and anything metal I am wearing. Rather take the extra time taking everythinf on and off than bother with mess of being check.
I remember when getting on a plane didn't require everything short of a body cavity search, but I have no recollection of a time when flying didn't suck. I take the train whenever possible--sure, it's slower, but ever so much more pleasant.hulugu said:I remember when you didn't have to strip to get on an airplane and flying didn't suck.
