I will be flying to Boston, MA from Cincinnati, OH for a 6 month internship. I want to carry two laptops(a mac and a windows) along with an iPad in the cabin baggage. While the mac is my primary computer, I will require the windows laptop to finish my school thesis work. I had purchased both the laptops in the US, and I have the bill for both of them.

Would I face any trouble in either airport due to the two laptops and the tablet? I searched online but could not find a rule, per se, for domestic travel within the US.

Any help is highly appreciated.


As long as your cabin baggage meets the size and weight requirements for the airline, they don't care what you put in it (except airport security will check for dangerous goods). There are no customs procedures for domestic flights.

    Do, however, be prepared to remove both laptops from your bag as you pass through airport security. So don't pack them at the bottom of your carry on or something similarly stupid. – LessPop_MoreFizz Jan 7 '16 at 3:44
  • I have personally often traveled with two laptops. Nobody cares as long as you keep within the weight and size limits - why should they? It is perfectly legal to travel with ten laptops... – Aganju Jan 8 '16 at 13:14
