    Carefully?

    Seriously, how did you get the stuff home from the store? You used a little care and common sense. Same thing applies here.

    Unhook it and load it into the vehicle...or to be more detailed. Grasp the bottom of the case and carry like a box...

    You drop it and something breaks. A car hits you and destroys the computer (but you survive, otherwise it wouldn't matter). You pass by a construction site where thay are using lare electromagnets and deside it would be fun to put your computer under one. A plane crashes and hits the computer (again, misses you). Someone mugs you and steals it...

    Getting the point yet? It's not as complicated as you seem to think. It's in a case for a reason. Just pick the damn thing up and carry it. I've done it a few dozen times for LAN parties, as have most of my friends. I'd be more worried about the monitor, ig you bring that. The same risks are involved, but a monitor is a lot more fragile than a computer. It's also heavier, if the weight is actually an issue for you.

    Unless you have a huge hevy heatsink on that CPU of yours then you should be fine, Dad droped the P3 on his way up the stairs the other day and it was fine... but be careful anyway.

    When I goto lan at friends houses, I just put it in the front on pasenger's side. Should be no proplems with that if you wish you can put a seatbelt on it... Accualy that wouldent be a bad idea. Back seat would work just as well.

    I usually just set computers on the floor in the back seat and monitors screen side down on the seat itself. If you can get the seat belt to hold the monitor in palce it is a bonus. Avoid performance driving and sudden stops ... not to mention rising waters, tornados, rollovers, and extreme impacts with other vehicles and/or buildings.

    I have a good one, I want to get to my friends house, and I don't have a car. It's too far to walk, to far to bike, but I can take the bus. I have a box, an LCD moniter, keyboard and mouse. I don't have a backpack to hold them all, but I want to secure them as to keep them away from the shady people on the bus. What do I do?
