Advice for a new folder?

I am a pseudo regular roadie, hopefully more riding after this weeks surgery. I have been looking at the purchase of a folder just to zip around campus at work. I have had my eye on the Dahon boardwalk beacuse its cheap and its on sale this week at performance:

Add the 10% coupon and free shipping and you have cheap transportation, however I am worried that it is not enough for my needs. For those who have this model is it small enough for air travel? Occasionally I travel for work and it would be nice to zip around near the hotel for a short workout.

Is it possible... sure. The Boardwalk isn't designed for air travel so... some disassembly may be required (removing wheels and other bits and bobs).
