    I do work with Lithium batteries from time to time and they are very difficult to ship. I suggest your helper checks that in detail before ending with a notebook she doesn't want.

    Yah I thought they shoved everything and anything in those large cargo boxes which get SHIPPED to either Philippines or Indonesia by BOAT, only downside of putting expensive items inside those boxes is that there is risk of stuff getting stolen as from the time it leaves your hands to reaching their home town is 2-3 months. ive seen FB posts of the logistics guys on the other side ripping open the boxes to plunder

    Highly, highly unlikely to be a problem. Laptops (and other electronics such as tablets) get shipped over all the time. Giant cardboard boxes crammed full of goods then dumped onto ships. The main problem is stuff getting stolen by the shippers.
