Checked luggage actually gets hit much harder. Do not take film exposed film through here. Checked computers should be fine though (although admittedly I carry my laptop on and have never checked it as a test but there shouldn't be an issue).
As someone who's taken a laptop on many flights (both Pre and Post 9/11) - don't sweat it.
You could also do the rational thing and call the airline - just tell them it's a computer so they don't get confused and think an Xbox is some other technology that may get hurt.

|anyone taken their xbox through the airport scanners before? I mean as a carryon...not cargo.|
Read my answer and the next one (the two right above yours). Laptops are fine for carry on. A laptop is a computer - has a harddrive (very similar components to Xbox - go fuckin figure). You are fine - both of us told you so. I brought up cargo because the scanners there (the ones you don't see) are ten times worse than the ones used for carry on. What is it that you want to hear? Leave the damn xbox at home, you'll rest easier.

|dyam man chill out i wouldn't want you to have a heart attack over answering questions in the forum thx for the help though.|
It's cool - I just get irritated when multiple people provide in depth answers to a poster's question, the poster fails to read carefully and asks the same question again as if he didn't even see the answers. The being said things here get complicated by people who insist on answering a question and have no idea what the answer is - tends to obscure the good information.
