      Don't ever check important items. That's just asking for it to be stolen

    Buy an extra checked bag. Are you really so moronic that you can't figure this out on your own and instead need to make a thread about it on an anonymous Japanese Culture website

    Idk about mexico but I've flown to Asia with a desktop as checked luggage. If I were you I'd find a way to just travel by land. I think you can just drive across the border without many issues?

      My employer is paying for my flight, and my car wouldn't make it.

      Aren't they not gentle AT ALL with your stuff?

      That was my thought as well.

    They will let you take it in checked luggage, why you aren't just using a laptop is moronic.
    >Also, how much is it going to cost?
    probably 50-75 dollars depending on the weight

      But will it be undamaged in checked luggage.

      >why you aren't just using a laptop is moronic.
      Because I edit in up to 16K for clients.

        Who knows it's more likely to be damaged than a laptop, especially if it has aftermarket fans/gpu/etc.
        >Because I edit in up to 16K for clients.
        And I am a Digital Nomad System Engineer for about 30k users, a Thinkpad 8c Ryzen 7+32GB ram+2TB SSD+USB C monitor works wonders. Besides who isn't just remoting into their other systems anyways? Shouldn't be doing work on something not regularly backed up or could be stolen/lost so easily.

          Tbf, systems engineer work is easier to take on the go.
          Remoting in is a nice option; if I had the option to remote in and edit, I would, but the PC cannot reliably stay where it is.

          >Besides who isn't just remoting into their other systems anyways? Shouldn't be doing work on something not regularly backed up or could be stolen/lost so easily.
          Okay. That's a nice retroactive perspective. That would've been cool to set that up, but I can't.

          I'd also just keep the drives in my carry on, so that part isn't the issue.

              Damn, that's so easy and affordable. Now, let me upload 7TB of data.

              or
              >option 2

              >closest friend that is reliable is 2 states away
              I'll admit that it may be a better option, but I still can't set that up in the timeframe given.

                Option 3
                >pedro sees gaming rig
                >pedro takes gaming rig
                >lose job and everything
                I run a file server with +8TB data, dedupe is a nice windows feature, it's most likely going to be around 200/mo but why not just have work provision you a machine in your datacenter? Besides once you get rid of the moronic gaymin shit, it will most likely go down. You're risking a lot with moving a PC like that as it will only be considered for checked and Mexico police are going to open that b***h up and not care about ESD killing it.

                Alternatively, get a laptop with multiple M.2 slots and have something you can always have on you and easily+safely transfer around. Huge risk to take a desktop when Pedro and crew think throwing your PC around in a suitcase is just clothes. That shit is going to send off every fricking x-ray.

    It takes a real autist to travel with a huge desktop gaming PC. I've seen it before though. I can already picture what op looks like.

    checked luggage, but you have to take it apart. you might even have to leave the case behind and get one in mexico. you'll have no problem replacing the case there.

      Depends on the size of the case. Also, to avoid damage, just stuff the suitcase full of padding and also put the case in a box with shock absorbing padding. Pelican suitcases are perfect for exactly this. Linus Trans Tips has a good video on how to pack a desktop PC for shipping.

        They are going to search something like this 100% if traveling to mexico, it's going to set off every fricking X-ray machine imaginable. No matter what he's probably going to get it at LEAST searched when it's leaving the US, most likely checked again in Mexico and torn apart most likely to look in every nook and cranny there.
        >Linus Trans Tips has a good video on how to pack a desktop PC for shipping.
        Not for airline checked bag mode shit. The people are going to be tossing his shit, when it hits the belt it's going to be tossed around as well. OP would be best off UPS/Fedex'ing it but that would probably cost as much as just buying a laptop to work off of.

          While I don't disagree that sending it via FedEx, ups, or DHL would be safer and more secure, when I sent my desktop as checked baggage it was never opened or inspected whatsoever. Maybe it's different for mexico. I've gone to Europe and Asia with it.

            The biggest issue imo with taking it to mexico is them thinking you're bringing it in for someone else and wanting you to pay taxes or thinking you plan on living in the country without a residence visa.

              Yea I could see that. But those things are a luck of the draw kind of thing. If you send it via post it is much more likely to get held up in customs and taxed then if you bring it in a checked bag. I've avoided this same kind of tax exactly by bringing my desktop in as check baggage. Shit, I've even carried 2 monitors as checked baggage to avoid taxes kek. But again, I could've just gotten lucky.

                Shit I remember taking my desktop to Malaysia. They made me put my checked baggage through a scanner when going through customs. I just told them I have nothing to claim, they scanned it, asked no questions, and waved me on. Similar experiences in Thailand and Japan. Yes I'm an autist that frequently travels with monitors and my desktop. I've done this in several euro countries too.

                I have a SFF PC which maybe helps me avoid scrutiny. It has a 4090 but it could still fit in a carry on if I wanted. I usually check it so I put a bunch of padding on it though.

    Can you just carry the guts (CPU,GPU,MOBO,PS, etc) in your carry on and then get a cheap case once you get down there?
