Travelers: What Technology to Bring?

Whether you are a tech geek or a business person, bringing the right technology on your travel can really make a big difference.

If you are a big tech fans like me, you’d probably like to kill time when sitting on a 20-hour flight and connect into the world. It does make time pass much faster and get some stuff actually done.

If you are a business person, the right technology can make your trip more convenient and stress free.
When I travel, some criteria are important to me. Things like convenience, benefits and portability top the lists. This means that everything I take with me will need to be the smallest, lightest, simplest but most importantly useful.

1. Computing Power

This is probably one of the items most travelers will bring with them. Ten years ago when PC was on the peak, laptop was considered a luxury item. Nowadays, our industries are bombarded with the thinnest, lightest, cutest computing devices. PDA, iPhone, Blackberry, Tablet PC, Laptop are on the list.

Laptop may be an obvious choice if you want to do a heavy computing power like programming, editing or organizing. Its size and usefulness make laptop still a desirable travelers’ item until now. The industry has even come up with the convenience edition – a 10 inch or less size of laptops – that can give you less weight and save some space on the trip.

Besides laptop, Tablet PC is another option. Generally, Tablet PC is more powerful than laptops. Tablet PC can perform anything that your laptop can, only with a few more extra features. In addition, they are handier than regular laptops. However these extra features and convenience come with a price tag. You are looking at perhaps now double the price of a regular laptop. My advice is if you don’t need to be doing client-facing activities such as detailed design, product showcasing, or direct customer survey with your laptop, stay away from Tablet PC. You can still use your laptop with those activities, however Tablet PC just makes it more convenient due to its tablet-like design.

If you just need an adequate word processing or browsing the net, PDA, iPhone, Blackberry or other types of smartphones will do just as fine. You can bring an foldable keyboard to make the typing easier.

2. Camera

The next item is camera. I think for whatever reason you are traveling, you still need to bring your camera. You’ll never know when and where a kodak moment arises.

Now, do you need the 35m SLR with 4 spare lenses?

Unless you are a professional photographer who has other needs than just taking a few simple shots, then you don’t need a fancy camera. Most digital cameras on the market will do as fine. Many of the latest models come in at least 10 mega pixels and image editing software. The quality can be very professional. And if you make the wrong settings, there is always photoshop touch you can do at the end.

3. Music Player

Do you have iPhone or iPod? how about an MP3 player?
These options are good choices and convenient. You might be able to store any data such as digital photos or files on them.

4. Insurance

One of the big things that you are really going to need for all of your gadgets is insurance. Aside from the fact that a person with a lot of gadgets has a lot more to lose when they get robbed, stuff also gets knocked around a lot when you travel. Make sure you get insurance that covers you for the cost of a new replacement of anything that is lost, damaged or stolen.

These lists are not exhaustive. However they should be a MUST consideration for anyone who is on travels frequently. If you can describe your gadget as convenient, beneficial, portable and insured, then you will have a very fun trip!
