Soon I'm going overseas for several weeks and life would be easier if I could bring my Mac mini. Has anyone done this without putting it in their checked baggage? I'm nervous about the idea (it'll be padded, but temperature controls below and all the hands it'd pass through make me uncomfortable). All my data is safe on a 3tb external staying home. I'm also bringing my 1tb external backup (which I'd also like to take as carry-on). I'm concerned that I'll check my suitcase only to find the TSA stops me and says I can't take it as carry-on after it's too late to check the thing. Any advice is welcome.
