Do you carry a computer on your trips? What?
Here is one more message soliciting opinions on electronics you guys use.
Do you travel with a computer?
On most of my trips, I drag along my Fujitsu B142. It is a fairly small machine, about 6.5”x9”. It fits well into my luggage – even into side cases of the R1200RT’s and K1200GT‘s I rented. The problem is that it requires a lot of ancillary stuff (big power supply brick), all peripherals are on PC Cards, the batteries are long gone and I cannot upgrade browser and use no security software since the computer runs Windows 98SE.
I am looking for a very portable machine that would allow me Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections – plus, possibly, a modem. I do need to be able to run real MS Office components (Outlook and Word at minimum).
I need a full-blown Web browser as well: I use the PC to access a lot of secure web sites (for example, when making hotel, ferry or air reservations), and some of them use such unnecessarily complex scripts that even the “pocket” versions of mainstream browsers do not work.
Any opinions? Rants? Cheers?
