    Anybody fly with a Macbook Pro lately?

    Did you encounter issues? Certain airlines are banning them from checked luggage due to battery fires.

    I fly with mine all the time as a carry on and zero issues... TSA still shows on their site that laptops can be checked... I won't be surprised if this rule changes in the near future...

    I wouldn't check a laptop anyways, too easy and tempting for TSA to steal. Always carry my laptop and my weed with me.

    I don't either, however I count it as one of those things I have to travel with that I won't let out of my sight if I can help it. YMMV

    Flown with it many times this year. I always put it in my personal item, and never had any problems. Itís only 13ď though and too new, maybe the TSA agents are instructed to only look for the 15 inch version which Apple recalled. YMMV
