I'm gonna travel abroad in a bit, and I was thinking, will passing through a lot of metal detectors and x-rays mess with the tablet's magnetic field?
I remember hearing of a case when a magnetic toy messed up a wacom completely, and the tablet is expensive, so better double check this.
With many artists traveling somebody must have stumbled upon this already.
All the best.

You can have them physically look at it and try to explain to them what exactly it is.
X-rays wont damage it for sure and I wouldn't have thought the electromagnetism of a metal detector would be able to either. Besides, your tablet will probably only be xrayed, I doubt they'll let you carry it through the metal detectors.
If you think about it, there are fairly stong magnets in most speakers and I recon a lot of people have their speakers as close to their tablets as a metal detector is likely to get so I wouldn't worry about it.
I have taken a tablet through airport security, and it was fine after. I don't think your concerns are unfounded though. I would contact the airport and see if their x-rays are out of the ordinary (LAX destroys film) and ask about having it inspected by hand.
This is actually a bit scary... Last time I went abroad I brought my tablet and during the stay there it stopped working. It was very old and had seen a lot of rough times though but the thought makes me a little eerie D: I'm going abroad again in a couple of weeks and man I definitely don't want the same to happen to my newly bought intuos..

Making it work, one step at a time!
My Wacom went through the X-ray just fine.
The operator seemed perplexed by what might be in my suitcase, and for a moment I thought he might detain me to open it.
Wasn't as embarrassing as being frisked for forgetting the keys in my pocket going through the metal detector.
My graphire3 did fine at the airport. Xrays. Not sure about metal detectors. It should be all right though.
