    Based on length of trip and expected storage, i guess. i brought a laptop + XDrive + 4Gb CF for a 10day trip to Nepal last year. Just about enough.

    i would say batteries were the bigger problem. Have to have sufficient juice in between charges.

    combination of xdrive + multiple CF, cause xdrive transfer is quite slow.

    Cool

    I will bring my X drive pro and not my notebook, it smaller, ligther, can double up as a mp3 player and most importantly very much cheaper than notebook, less costly in case of lost or damage.
    Anyway, most of the hotel got TV can just plug in to review photo, don't need notebook, also don't think has time and enegry to stay in the hotel to edit picture.

    Bring enough CF/SD for one whole day's outing, and then dump them into a XSDrive at the end of the day.

    I've found this works very well on my past 2 trips. But all depends on how you are travelling.

    If you are backpacking, bringing a laptop is not really a viable option since its too damn heavy compared to a XSDrive type of digital wallet.

    If you have a fully packaged tour with airport pickups to your hotel doorstep, then a laptop makes sense.
