    wow words are hard..

    So what would be the best way to haul my caselabs mercury s5 and my 27" predator monitor so that it's all safe and easy to carry?

    Monitor bags I've seen on amazon and/or a dolly cart and if so which one?

    I do both. I have a hand truck and then I also have the carrying straps on both my PC and my monitor. I'm pretty happy with my solution. One thing I would suggest is a towel or something around any edges or places you might not want to get scratched. If I was only going to suggest one then I'd say you need a cart...that way while you are standing in line to get in you aren't either holding/shifting your PC all the way through the line.

    Any suggestions on monitor and pc straps?

    I have a 27" and I'm going to try this: Gator Cases G-LCD-TOTE-MD Padded Nylon Carry Tote Bag for Transporting LCD Screens Between 27" - 32" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CVSXMWG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_5W6Jyb3M44CMA

    And cart wise:

    Magna Cart Personal 150 lb Capacity Aluminum Folding Hand Truck (Silver) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HVVSDU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_wY6Jyb9HGWSSA

    My monitor has a stand that is not easy to remove so I'm currently using this on my 24" ultrasharp:

    They don't make the case to carry my computer anymore but they have others out there that are similar:
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999410

    That Magna Cart is a good choice but it all just depends on how heavy your hardware is. I would suggest you get some bungee chords and a towel because every year in the security lines I see people stop or start too fast with their dolly and stuff falls off their cart.

    Also, this topic was covered pretty well in this thread for additional reading:

    This is something that I have used back in the day. I frankly speaking dont use mine anymore (as I dont take my desktop apart & bring it anymore). I believe that mine is a regular size Gear Grip. They arent very popular anymore, but they are still made (you can find them on Amazon). When it comes to your monitors, I do highly recommend using both a towel & some bungee straps so that they move as little as possible.

    Btw, heres the large version of it: https://www.amazon.com/ThinkGeek-GearGrip-Pro-Large-Size/dp/B00021UJ62
