  3. Need to transport a computer ASAP - No antistatic bags.
2 years ago#1
I want to take the computer apart and leave the case where it is now, and just transport all of my other computer parts.

I don't know where to get antistatic bags in the town I live in quickly, so is there something I can buy to transport the parts in my backpack/suitcase? I figure packing them in clothes wouldn't be super intelligent but I've never attempted anything like this so if I could get some advice that'd be great.

You're not going to like the answer.

The case is the best place.

It's the best choice obviously, but I'm in a bad living situation and I need to leave ASAP.

I don't have money to ship the computer AND leave onhand, my only option to get home is through Amtrak and I'm pretty sure I can't carry on my computer case/monitor.

So I'm looking at whatever viable alternative options I have.

Looks like cotton is a way to go. Wrap your components in 100% cotton clothes and they will not only be well padded but cotton is apparently neutral when it comes to static electricity:

But it's better than cotton for winter weather.

Only if you count the friction generated by constant itching as warmth.

If you count nearly any property to it. Cotton is the worst fabric possible for winter weather. If you get warm it will just soak up your sweat and make you colder. It's very dangerous.
