    So I am 180 miles from home and I have built my brother a gaming PC problem now is getting it back home to him. He is coming up to me soon but the question is how risky is taking it on the train? I cant remove any components as he wont know foggiest of how to put it back in. I have a big Suitcase was thinking about packaging it very well in the case' original box. Any other idea? Thanks!

    If you put it on the train its going to look like your using the WIFI :ahee:

    Its fine, but you have to keep an eye on it. It depends on the size ofthe case. Arent there spaces inbetween adjoining seats? If not then you have to put it in the liggage section and your only choice is o be close by so people cnat wlak off with it. Maube you could get a cable ,lock to fasten it to soemthing? If its hidden in the suitcase that will do a lot to reduce the risk.

    Depends how big it is and how much luggage space there is on the train. Luggage space is a gamble, so how big is it? He might have to stand with it the whole journey.
