New large electronics check leaving Mexico?
 
Has anyone taken a laptop/tablet down recently and had a long wait getting through lines heading back to the States?

Sorry for not being informed, but why should there be a wait? Are there any new TSA regulations?

Just asking cause I'm bringing a huge ass laptop to Nebraska in a couple of weeks..

Yes.

There is/was a temporary order to arrive 3 hours early for international flights due to safety concerns with the larger electronic devices, such as laptops. Not unlike a previous order in other parts of the world that have since been lifted. I think it was to allow time for the country(ies) where there was a viable threat to implement new procedures. Once they are/were in place, it goes back to 2 hours. I am vague on it because while I heard when they started it, I have not heard that it is back to business as normal (although it may very well be).

No problem last Sunday. Had a laptop and tablet in my carry on backpack. Didn't even ask me to take them out.

Bringing a laptop or tablet on a Mexico-to-U.S. flight? Beware of new security measures - LA Times

Quote:

Mexican authorities say the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has instituted heightened security measures for laptops and tablets on U.S.-bound flights from the country.

Mexico's Transportation Department said in a statement that the measures took effect starting Wednesday for “electronics larger than a cellphone.”

It recommends passengers carry as few of those devices as possible in carry-on bags and advises that such electronics must undergo separate security checks without cases or covers.

In March, U.S. authorities banned cabin electronics on departing flights from 10 airports in the Middle East over concerns that extremists could hide bombs inside laptops. Earlier this month, carriers in Jordan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey announced that they had been exempted from the ban after they had satisfied U.S. security concerns.

On June 28, before those announcements, the Department of Homeland Security released a plan to implement “enhanced security measures” for all commercial flights to the United States.
