Travel topic[edit]


Travelers take a laptop notebook with them for variety of reasons:

  • pure business travellers: their primary reason for travelling is business purposes
  • business even during vacation / holidays: able to reply to urgent email and resolve urgent technical things even while being on a vacation
  • creativity: when away from day-to-day routine, they are able to create something impossible at home
  • photos: save from a camera; photoshop them; show previous trips to fellow traveller
  • watch movies
  • entertain kids (with movies or games)
  • read Wikitravel and contribute to it :-)

Practical tips[edit]

  • if you take movies with you, consider taking a VGA cable: as more and more hotels equip their rooms with flat-screen TVs, it is much easier to connect them to your laptop than to find a DVD player in a hotel. Especially true if you rip DVDs to your HDD to reduce luggage size.
