Shalom I will be getting an iMac for my job in Hong Kong in a few weeks (I will own the iMac once I am finished). I would like to take it back to Israel with me as it is mine. I have checked Hong Kong Post and they don't offer insurance for postage to Israel (but do offer express and extra large parcels). I would be flying with El Al back to Israel on the new 777 El Al planes. I read in the archives that people prefer to take the iMac as carry on. I don't think this is practical as the iMac is likely to fall on someone unless you are first one on board and last one off and have someone to help you. I am not so strong to lift such a heavy item and put it in the overhead (haven't done army service - will be doing it next year). I think I am restricted from bring such an item on board (see below). So I am wondering: Is it possible to put the iMac securely back into the box after using it? Is the box suitable for check in transport or do I need something like the ilugger? How big is the box for the 20"? And the 24"? Does anyone suggest putting my clothes in space bags and putting the iMac box/ilugger in my suite case with extra bubble wrap for both the safety of the iMac and so it doesn't get stolen? (Assuming it fits.) I haven't decided if I will get a 20" or 24" yet. El Al carry on restrictions are: 56 (length) 45 (width) 25 (depth) cm Or 22 (length) 18 (width) 10 (depth) inches One piece of hand luggage weighing up to 8 kg (17pounds).
