    Just saw this thread for the first time...

    I flew LAX-SFO and they had no problem with my iPad. However, they finally asked me to open my backpack because they couldn't figure out what the wireless keyboard was from the x-ray image.

    This is an interesting thread since I'm planning to travel to Europe later this year with my iPad. I also want to one-bag it, so I need the best way to carry my iPad and the wireless keyboard. I'm thinking of separate caches for each. Now I just have to decide on which bag...

    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.

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

    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 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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nana8, I haven't flown with my iPad2 yet. But I would say YES, the iPad is for you! ;-) I love mine - it does so much.

    When I go thru any security checkpoints (airport or otherwise), I make it as easy on myself as I can and remove all my devices and set them in the bins. Phone, iPad, laptop, iPod Touch, whatever I'm carrying. And then I refuse to let myself be rushed when I'm putting myself back together on the other side.

    I flew out of Seattle and Maui with my laptop and ipad. I took the laptop out but kept the ipad in the laptop sleeve of my backpack and in both occasions was not asked to remove it.

    I have never been asked to remove my iPad from my bag. It is packed in a folio case and that is inside a form-fitting sleeve, with no keyboard or other accessories.
