Question Re Laptops

I have never traveled with a laptop before and from what I have gathered, I will need to remove the laptop from my bag before going through security. Anything else I should be aware of or is this it? Thanks in advance for all the help!

No, that's it as far as airports.

But where are you going? If it's bewteen the U.S. and Europe (for example) then you need to deal with electrical issues.

Thanks for the quick reply suze. Traveling to Washington state, so I won't have to worry about electrical issues.

You have to remove the laptop during the security screening.

It has to be in it's own bin as it passed through the detector.

I travel with my laptop all over the world. You just have it ready to drop in the bin when you get to the belt.

I travel with mine all of the time. Not all of the airports have free w-fi; here is a link to assist...

Also make sure that you have the battery in the laptop charged. There has been a few times when they actually wanted me to "boot up" the computer in the security line to confirm it's a "real" computer...Hope this helps!
