Laptop Travel

by SteveMadsen on November 23, 2007

Kevin Allgood wrote an interesting article for Brave New Traveler asking readers to consider why they need to carry a laptop on their travels. I stopped carrying a laptop when I bought my Archos 604 WiFi, it fulfills the three main functions the much heavier laptop used to do for us:

1. Stores movies to keep us entertained.

2. Back up our digital media (photos, video etc).

3. Web browsing.

Email and blogging still requires a trip to the Internet Cafe because there is no keyboard but I can accept that small inconvenience for the two kilogram weight saving.

As a phototaker, I had to decide whether to bring the laptop to download photos…in the end, I bought another 2GB of memory and I’m going to leave the laptop at home.
