    I'll be going on vacation soon and will be taking my Sharp PV6000. Is it safe to run through the secruity scans with out damaging the MIPS?

    It is a PDA. Palm top so they say, its a small laptop to me. It runs windows CE. Lite weight and easy to carry in my small brief case for on the road or airplane. I just don't want to damage it going through airport security checks.
    What is used to scan carry on items when going through security checks?

    Hand carried bags can be x-rayed and subjected to a magnetic fields the same as you will be at checkin. Either can damage electronics. It is best to have it hand inspected by security.
