I bought mine and it had a lot of downloaded content.

You'd be incredibly unlucky to have something checked. Just make sure you don't look dodgy.

i personally have travelled at least 20 times in and out of abu dhabi and dubai with laptop and portable hard disks and have never had any problems. as mentioned before, as long as you dont have anything 'dodgy' on there then no worry.
not sure what makes people look suspect, but had a friend who was stopped almost every week we travelled in/out of heathrow, just 'one of those faces' i guess

If you do have anything "dodgy" you want to hide on the miniscule chance someone does plug it in to have a look, just create a hidden folder.
