This question already has an answer here:
I will be flying from Halifax to Calgary (for any non-Canadians, its about 4500km, 5 hour flight) a couple weeks from now, and need to bring my new iMac with me. The reason I say 'new' iMac is because the current model is smaller and lighter than previous ones. The official size and weight from the Apple site are:
Height: 17.7 inches (45.0 cm)
Width: 20.8 inches (52.8 cm)
Stand depth: 6.9 inches (17.5 cm)
Weight: 12.5 pounds (5.68 kg)
I am hoping that I will be able to take it as carry on, because I really don't want to check it with the rest of the luggage.
My question is: does anyone have experience taking their iMac with them on a plane? If so, could you take it as carry-on?

Note that this is different to the existing question on Taking a Desktop PC as a Carry-On, because an iMac is a different shape and has an integrated screen.
