Quickest way to lose seven pounds

The quicket way to lose seven pounds from your travel kit: Leave the laptop at home. This may not be possible for business travelers, professional/addictive bloggers, journalists, or photographers. But, if you can, leave the little monster at home. If you must write, get a Moleskine notebook and a tubular ink-based data entry device (pen). The rugged little Moleskine is instant cool. I’ve gone with the even lighter soft-cover Moleskine cahier for travel. Let’s face it, the little Moleskine looks better at dinner than the Dell.

I agree with you, although I use a MacBook.

Giles - I hope there's a little Mac in my future,

You'll love the MacBook : lightweight, and no viruses ! By the way, great travel tips.

Just to balance the Mac fanboys, my four-year-old Panasonic Toughbook W2 weights under 3 lbs and still runs for five hours on a charge. And it even has a built-in CD/DVD-ROM drive. My wife's Toughbook R2 (about the same vintage) weighs less than 2 lbs.

I'd looked at the old Toughbooks on eBay but didn't know they were quite this light - how are they on screen brightness, heat, and battery life?

Maybe it's just me, but I hate having a laptop on vacation.

I might just be weak, but I feel like it's way too easy to waste vacation time when the internet is right there.
