Here’s the extent of my gear for Macworld Expo 2011, from left to right.
- iPad (16GB, Wi-Fi only) in DODOcase (my love of DODOcase here)
- 11.6-inch MacBook Air
- Field Notes notebook and pen for notes, quick jots, what-have-you
- Crappy drug store headphones
- iPhone 4
- Verizon MiFi 2200
- Apple Mighty Mouse
This gear fits into the small bag I bought in Cupertino last year and will get the job done. See you there!
Randy Murray recently took little more than an iPad on a business trip:
“I traveled with just my iPad…I also took a Bluetooth keyboard…my Moleskine notebook, my pens, a couple of recent copies of the New Yorker, and not much else.
The age of the laptop may be coming to a close.”
Having recently attended meetings with my iPad and keyboard dock, I can attest to the effectiveness of that setup. The iPad hasn’t replaced a laptop for me, but it can accomplish 80% of what I need to do while traveling.
