    do you think i'll have any trouble including it with my carry on luggage in the suitcase? they have no way of verifying that it does what it does without a tv (unlike a laptop they can just fire up and see it works)

    i would put it in your clothes bag with the luggage, if you want to be held up for hours, go ahead and take it with carry on

    I'm pretty sure security knows what a Nintendo Wii is, especially from holiday travels and such.

    Airport security isn't completely stupid, you'll get through no problem (I've done plenty of traveling myself, I know what I'm saying).

    I don't think it's a problem. I always carry my psp, mp3 and mobilephone on the plane.

    yep. what i'm trying to wonder is... when they ask you to claim your items (on a sheet of paper, when traveling out of country... do you get taxed or anything with electronics)?

    Put it in your suitcase, but make sure it is in the middle, extremly padded well, and it should be fine!

    My brother works for airport security, says it will be fine (hes been asked about 100 times since launch :p) As long as it doesn't have a hard drive it will be fine! because magnets mess with it. Dont bring your PS3!

    I flew with the Wii, and it went through the X rays, and stuff...

    It is ok, nothing will happen to you
