In about a month I'll be traveling to China, the flight from Colombia to Los Angeles takes about 7 hours and from Los Angeles to Shanghai takes 14, so I'm really planning to take as many gadgets as I can to distract myself (I can't sleep in planes). Along with me I'll have my iPhone 4, my trusty Lenovo Y460 (includes a GT550m for gaming), a Nikon D5000 D-SLR Camera, probably my dusty Nintendo DS Lite (which I haven't used in about a year), a Razer Orochi Mouse... that's probably it, I hope it helps a lot distracting me during those long flights
At the top of my list is my Nikon D7000 with a few different lenses,
A Canon G9 as a backup camera,
My iPod Touch 4G for tunes,
and my laptop. I don't currently have a tablet, though I intend on getting one in the very near future.
For a new tablet, I've narrowed my choices down to the #1 Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, #2 Asus EEE Pad Transformer, and #3 Kindle Fire (which I may get along with one of the other two just for grins).
Hmm, let me think... my basics for travel: MacBook Pro, headphones and iPhone.
Then depending on the destination: Asus portable wi-fi router and spare ethernet cable, GPS, Canon Rebel XSi/Panasonic HD camcorder, and my desktop-sized mouse and mousepad (Razer Deathadder).
I'm a little anti-social I guess, I got rid of my cell because I missed being able to get away from people. As for gadgets, on the rare occasion I'll bring my laptop with me. If I'm going on vacation I'll bring my camera...
-I never even travel from the freezer to the microwave (college student) without my Motorola Atrix
-When I travel I make sure my ipod is fully charged and freshly updated with the songs I may or may not have just got from thepiratebay to insure sanity
-An 8 GB flash drive and a 2 GB spare in the event the 8 GB one gets washed again
-I remove the dust from my psp if its a long trip
-Last but not least a true geek is never fully dressed without his Multi-tool
... It seems Im an oddity without even owning a laptop but I had a nettop once that I hated due to lack of horse power and the unwillingness to pay for a nice one; considering I have a gaming PC at home and I paid lab fees I dont really have the need
I travel with my MS-DOS computer complete with a CRT monitor and a cassette player or if I'm feeling really techy, a Sony Walkman!! If I have an extra backpack, I might bring a cellular phone, as long as I'm not planning to walk long distances, I have to be careful though because sometimes the antenna slips out and breaks.
