I thought the computer itself was only 1.9 inches deep...

Reply 4 of 8 beimac Posts: 26member May 6, 2005 2:11AM Oh darn, I thought the stand was removeable. My bad Thanks WR! Reply 5 of 8 wrong robot Posts: 3,907member May 6, 2005 2:28AM Actually, I think the stand is removable, and while I can't say offhand exactly what it would be without the stand, it would be well within acceptable airline limits(where width is often more a concern) Reply 6 of 8 beimac Posts: 26member May 6, 2005 2:32AM Indeed, that's what I was thinking. With some bubblewrap and the stand removed, it would fit in the 55cmx40cmx20 cm size limit for carry-on luggage my airline requires. I don't want to put it in my suitcase. It's a hard shell suitcase, but I still don't trust it. The keyboard and mouse could go in there, but not the CPU...
