    Rome airport (FCO) made us pull ALL electronics out and put them in a clear plastic bag.

    Earlier this month I flew to San Diego and left my iPad in my Aeronaut and had no problems. Omaha and San Diego were the two airports I cleared security.

    ATL - sometimes yes!
    My boss and I flew from ATL - MIA and back. She has the Motorola 10 inch tablet. In ATL, they asked her to remove her tablet, but didn't ask me to remove my Nook Color. When flying from MIA, she automatically started to put her tablet in its own bin and the agent told her she could leave it in her bag. It just depends on the agent you get. When I fly out of my smaller airport here in Augusta, they want you to take everything out sometimes and sometimes I don't even take my shoes off.

    In Brussels, I was asked to put the iPad through separately. But there was no line, very polite folks, I kept my shoes on and didn't get groped, so overall, pretty nice.

    Never taken it out of the Super Ego in the USA.

    In the past, I've always removed it. My most recent trip I left it in. At EWR, it was no problem, however, coming home from CPH, they handed me my bag back and asked if I'd mind removing my iPad and having my bag checked again. (amazing how much more pleasant the Danish security people are!)

    I was never asked to remove my iPad for screening on holiday in the US last year (SFO, JFK, LAX) and like others was occasionally told I did not need to remove it if I did happen to put it in the tray.

    Outside the US it varies a lot.

    I've had to remove my iPad traveling through the UK - Glasgow, Edinburgh and Heathrow.
    In Japan at Nagoya Chubu & Tokoyo Narita I've had to do phone, iPad, harddrives, anything with a bunch of circuitry in it.

    Plus side ... domestic travel in Japan you can bring on liquids of any size. Fair trade.

    I was asked to remove my iPad from my MCB at Marco Polo (VCE).

    I just flew SFO-MCO and the TSA agent in Terminal 2 told me, "Is that an iPad? Next time you can just keep it in your bag." Call me paranoid; I usually take it out, anyway. I just put it in the same plastic bin as the shoes and toiletry kit.

    OK this is what *I* do and it may not be enough for you -- I have my iPad in a very slim case, and I actually slide it into the deepest of the front pockets on the Tri-Star or Western Flyer. It's a very snug fit, but it's right in the front and I always know where it is.

    My wireless keyboard is a folding one that I can actually slip into the shorter front pocket, so the two basically stay together.

    That said, if you plan on carrying a purse with your carryon, all the Cafe Bags will actually fit your iPad (yes, even the Small Cafe Bag). The SCB will make it a bit of a tight fit; MCB may give you a little more breathing room. You can even carry it in your Packing Cube Shoulder Bag. For example, even when I only travel with one bag, I usually bring out the PCSB and stash things in there that I want to use while in-flight. I'll tuck the Western Flyer in the overhead bin and just use the PCSB while I'm seated.

    MSN - ORD -- No.

    Glasgow & Edinburgh - No.

    Anywhere flying in Japan - Yep. I've discovered that they like all electronics or things with HDs (including portable HDs), Cameras, smart phones, etc to be scanned separately.

    Not a bad trade off IMO - in Japan so far I've experienced that there's no limit imposed on liquids when flying domestically.

    Helsinki Vantaa airport required I take my ipad2 out of my bag but let me keep my shoes on. They did allow me to keep the ipad in the cache, though.
