    hey guys, i've searched the forums and haven't found anything really on this topic....i'm traveling on sunday with my ipad for the first time, and am wondering about the process of carrying it on the plane....do they make you take it out like a laptop or can you leave it in your carry on?

    any help is appreciated! thanks in advance!

    I've never had to remove it from my carry on.

    They've never checked mine. But its a pain in the ass due to its size. I really wish Apple would build a 7" model. But Steve would never build one. He didn't think of it first, so his ego gets in the way.

    No worries, that drove me to buy a Samsung Tab. I must admit I like it a lot. The ideal size for the tray table.

    It's so enjoyable to have choices.

    The TSA confirmed for the first iPad that they would not require it to be taken out of bags for security.

    Okay! Thanks for the help!

    Yeah OMG I read about that, when I'm done using it, it's going back in my carry on!
