Exact same scenario. Didn't want to bring notebook when travelling. So bought this toy with 20GB HDD.
Went on 5 days tour with two 1 GB CF card. Shot many photos... total more than 10GB !! No problem and no regrets.

The advantage of having a laptop is that u can edit and view the shots in full size.... on this X-Drive, u can't view your shot anyway..... I prefer a laptiop... those B4 ultra portables will do nicely....

The advantage of a x-drive (over a notebook)
1) weight lighter than a notebook
2) more portable than a notebook
3) cost less than a notebook
The advantage of a notebook (over the x-drive)
1) can view images
2) can edit (retitle and touchup)

I would like a device like a PDA with a screen of that size to view my pics.... that small screen is about the same size and res of the camera's LCD, I might as well look at it on the LCD.... perhaps even larger than a PDA, but definitely much lighter than a ultra portable notebook.... a 8-10" screen would be good and having the device about slightly thicker than a 2.5" HDD with multi card reader and firewire/USB2.0/bluetooth/IR/WiFi/GigabitLAN/stylus/touchscreen.... WOW!!
