Im traveling from NY to Toronto on a plane. Can I take a desk iMac computer in the checked luggage without the risk of mess up the computer because of the heat or coldness of the cargo of the aircraft?
As long as it is properly wrapped and packed, it should be OK.
The problem is not the temperature, but the handling by airport staff.
Stick on the box/luggage, "fragile" stickers.
Also, check if you have insurance for damage baggage.
