    GT and Airport Security

    For those of you who have flown with your GT 10.1, is the tablet treated like a laptop computer i.e., does it have to be placed (sans protective case) in the bin along with shoes, etc.? Thanks!

    I appreciate the replies! I will hope the airports I will be departing from will be "civilized", but I will prepare for all possibilities!

    I have extensively traveled both domestically and internationally with my GT 10.1 and they never asked me to pull it out. So I would say that "no", they don't consider it as a computer... yet.

    But just give them time and they will find a way to annoy us even more and consider tablets as computers. All it takes is one stupid attempt (look at what happened after the shoes incident). Lucky for us, they didn't ask us to remove our underwear after that attempt. But I am certain that some at TSA wanted to do this (sigh).

    Sorry for the rant but this is getting out of hand... (off my soapbox)
