Hi so my wife and I have been. Travelling around the world for the last 14 months. In July we take a few days and visit my brother in Boston, where I am doing some apple hardware shopping. I have already ordered a base model 13 inch MBP. but am leanng towards getting a 16gb ipad too. We are travelling for another 6 months so I am now confused. Should I take just he mbp and not buy the ipad until I get home (London) or should I buy and use just the ipad and get my brother to hold onto the mbp until I visit him later after the travels. Or should I take both? Realistically I am leaning towards holding off on the ipad purchase until I return to London, but I am super taken by the prospect of travelling with the ipad...! Some other things people should know... I love my photography so am a bt worried about using the ipad solely, particulrly re uploading to flickr. Also we are backpacking so I guess it would be a security burden carrying 2 gorgeuos apple products?? Maybe I have answered my own question, but I am sure there is more than at first sight... Thoughts and suggestions please!!!
