Back to the original question : My experience

I have had multiple instances over the past years where I had to have laptop/s in my check-in bags. No issues whatsoever. My strategy has always been to put it in a nice padded/armored case, then pack it in the suitcase. There has been instances where TSA has opened the entire thing (left me note).

So far so good, no exploding screens or whatever.

Good luck with your adventure.
