Hey,
I am going to travel back to my home town for a few weeks this summer and I kind of need to take my iMac with me. It is a 20" C2D. I still have the original box that I can take it in. Does any one know if that will be too big to use as a carry on for Southwest flights?

Thanks.

Your best bet would be to check with your airline to get absolute clarification.

I agree. Every airline has its own rules and limitations plus it may depend on the plane as well. I doubt they let you take it as a carry-on, more likely they will ask you to check it in as a special luggage which of course, costs nice extra amount of $

and don't forget to take out insurance!
