The open screen things look horribly exposed for the rigours of travel. As wifi is getting big where I go, internet cafes are closing their operations running PCs, so I will have to look into a device. I figure a slim laptop with a mid-sized screen will be the best compromise, maybe a 12" screen or thereabouts. Has to be light and reasonably strong/shockproof, that or something so cheap you chuck it away every year or two.
But that would be for keeping in touch/web, not back up or (ugh) image work on the road - wrong task to environment match. I use a terrific backup product called a Nexto Extreme, basically a small encased HD of whatever size that takes all card types and connects to PCs. It does various checks of data integrity, but I have never had a problem with cards - ever. I keep intact all cards I fill, they (SD) are so cheap, but need an extra verifiable copy.
