    It's my opinion that the frontline folks all just kind of come up with their own variation. I've gone through airports in the last year that specifically ask to take out iPads. It's almost like they want to make it easier on thieves or something.

    My iPad is in a black folio that can go through the machines, so I usually put it in a tray along with my shoes and 3-1-1 bag. I will push my Western Flyer through first, and then wait to make sure the person ahead of me has gone through the detector, and then push the tray in. I don't leave the queue until the tray has gone into the machine, and that way I increase the odds that my iPad will be safe coming out the other end.

    I forgot to take my liquids out at Bristol (UK) the other day, and they dragged me back to have them scanned, but my iPad stayed in the Ristretto along with my keys, phone, wallet, sunnies, pens, ear buds etc. But I fly at least four time a month, always to or from Edinburgh, but, since I've had my iPad, to Alicante and San Javier (both Spain), and to Birmingham and Bristol in the UK, without once being asked for my iPad, but always for my MacBook. I never questioned whether my MBAir needed to come out, I just put it out in an InCase 'cache'. My MBPro usually goes through in an InCipio Feather case that fits in my Ristretto. to stop in getting scratched.

    As an aside I dropped my MBP the other day when I accidentally pushed it off a dinning chair on to a ceramic tiled floor. The MBP survived unharmed, but the Feather split. I suppose thats what its supposed to do i.e. sacrifice itself to protect the MBP, but I was a little disappointed that it broke so easily. Still, I was getting tired of the rather PC like matt black. I think I might try a clear skin next.

    unfortunately, the experience as you go through security can really vary.

    i'll ask if i need to take my liquids out when i go through security. sometimes they say yes, sometimes they say no.

    they don't generally fuss about the size of the liquid container anymore, but it's not always the case. i've been allowed through with a big tube of toothpaste and i've been made to throw away a smaller (but larger than 3oz) shaving cream container.

    i've left my macbook air (which tsa says doesn't need to be taken out like other laptops) as i go through security and i had no issues. and at other times, they've made me send it back through outside of whatever bag it was in.

    i've had no issues not taking my ipad out as i went through security, and i've had security tell me it needs to be taken out.

    some years back, security at jfk told me that i couldn't take my 1.7 fluid ounce bottles of shampoo and conditioner through because they weren't labeled. what does labeling have to do with anything? just because a bottle says shampoo on it doesn't mean that i can't empty it and fill it with conditioner or whatever else. but that was their policy, despite the fact that at the time, the tsa website showed an example of what was considered acceptable and the image had nalgene bottles (which are not labeled). i ended up throwing them away.

    the important thing to having it go smoothly is to be flexible. if they say to take something out for screening, it's a good idea to cooperate. if they say you can't take it with you, and you can't reasonably convince them, you'll need to make a decision whether you want to check that item or toss it.

    Any case or sleeve that has exterior pockets isn't "checkpoint friendly" because you might put things in those pockets, therefore obstructing the view of the laptop. That said, many customers put their laptop in the Brain Cell (which has an exterior pocket) through the x-ray machines without issue, making sure though not to have put anything in its exterior pocket.

    Japan always!

    Living and traveling in Japan they ALWAYS ask for the IPAD to be taken out!

    Last Christmas I carried my Ipad inside a shoulder bag and was stopped by a grumpy security man at Edinburgh airport that said I was carrying a computer and hadn't taken it out. I argued it was an Ipad and didn't need to but he replied they still had to check it so he took it away with him for a while.
    My husband said they were probably playing some games or checking their email
    Maybe it was just a one off because they didn't bother when we returned.

    The iPad is airport/TSA friendly.

    started a topic Breve for Original iPad?

    Breve for Original iPad?

    I love the new Breve for iPad 2! By chance will the original iPad fit as well?
