Only consideration is the dimensions of the larger of the two, might not fit on an airplane, Honestly though I'd carry the laptop on the plane if I were you. The face of those laptop/mixer rack combos is not that rigged and could be crushed in enough, to damage the lap top. I did get one of those with a six space rack, got it filled up, and it got really heavy. Had a hernia a week later, and sold the thing. , and bought a Gator rolling rack and stuck my mixer back in its old case.

I'd not come across Gator before, and was looking at the website. These two products http://www.gatorcases.com/productsmodeldetail.aspx?LID=1&PID=26&MID=324 (which holds a laptop & 2u) http://www.gatorcases.com/productsmodeldetail.aspx?LID=1&PID=26&MID=325 (which holds a laptop & 4u and has wheels and a handle) would seem to have great potential.
