I'll be travelling for 3 weeks with only an iPad mini and an iPhone 4S. I'll miss my laptop enormously but I've added a keyboard to the mini (too hard to journal travels with the virtual screen keyboard). The mini fits in my purse so I won't worry about leaving equipment in a hotel room. I've been using it in preparation for a while now and except for being a bit small for jigsaw puzzles (my favourite procrastination activity), it does everything my larger iPad does and reading on it is no different than reading on a Kindle (except for the glare in bright light). This is an experiment for me - I've never travelled without at least a netbook in my bag.
