TSA: X-ray of MacBook Air may be "sensitive security information"

Phil sez,

After hearing stories of trouble at airport security checkpoints related to Apple's newest laptop, TSA acquired one and x-rayed it. The TSA's "Blogger Bob" summarized that because the MacBook Air uses a solid state drive instead of a traditional hard drive, its internals look entirely different than any other laptop.

He also says that he cannot show the image of the x-ray of this laptop because that is sensitive information.

I'd love to see some rebellious x-ray technician pick up the slack and show us all what's so special.

In the followup comments, "Bob" says that he isn't sure if an X-ray of a MacBook Air would breach national security, but that someone would come along shortly to determine whether it is or isn't.


(Thanks, Phil!)
