Am not too sure if that X-ray machine at the Airport security checkpoint can damage the components of a laptop but if you are curious to know how your laptop might appear to the security guy inside, here are some real pictures.

The images was captured by Nick Veasey who uses X-Rays to capture the inner photographs of everyday objects like a city bus, an iPod, his shoes, the remote of a TV and even a full-size Boeing 777 jet.

You can downloads Nick’s collection as a PDF file or head over to Telegraph for his more recent work. Hat tip Ilya Vedrashko.
