    Dekstop computer, hand carry or check in?

    Hello, I have a atx desktop computer with a plastic acrylic (?) case with a discrete graphics card.

    1. Would it be better to hand carry and put it inside the overhead cabin?

    2. Is it better to remove the discrete graphics card and check it in?

    3. Do I need to remove the cmos battery if check in?

    Thank you.

    I'd just ship it. Sounds like quite the hassle to cram a desktop computer into an overhead storage area. Just make sure you pack it with plenty of cushioning so that it can handle the jostling.
