This question already has an answer here:
So basically, I have this small form factor gaming PC that I built a few months back for portability*, and I will be leaving to Malaysia to study*, but I believe I might need a capable PC since my laptop mostly isn't, I would put the whole PC inside my main luggage with my clothes, but I fear that as a Saudi young man, they might have me interrogated (because ISIS 'n all that BS) and waste my time at the airport*,
So what do I do to make sure to bring it with me? Can I dissemble it and will it then pass through without question? Do I really have to give it to someone to ship it to me?
and an another sub-question, if I had removed and taken the PCs hard drives instead, will I be required to show the airport its contents? I mainly have a lot of animated movies downloaded and large-sized games.
