I can answer about the laptop part of your question. If you bring your computer with you in your luggage or carry on, you will have no problem. I brought a laptop with me in and out of KZ twice, no problems. Shipping one in is a headache. I shipped my big desktop to myself and spent the better part of two weeks getting it through customs (paying for storage every day on it).
