...and by recently I mean since the UK bomb/liquid issue, what was the deal with going through security with your Mac? I'm traveling to NY on Friday and then to Israel the following Sunday, so what precautions should I take while flying with my MacBook Pro? Will I need to show that it's a working computer (so should I put it to sleep rather than shut it down?) ? Should I make it easily accessible? What has worked/not worked for you? Yes, this would go under the "Advice" portion of the forum.
