What are some tips/suggestions for travelling with a laptop through a region like South East Asia? More specifically, Thailand / Laos / Malaysia. But again, also just looking for general tips/advice.
I've already got some bases covered as I'm using a MacBook Air so weight/size isn't too much of an issue, but what about stuff like:
- General Security in not losing it
- Data Security - connecting to unsafe Wifi & Using Proxy to be safe
- Backing up Computer Data - is just using a cloud service like DropBox the best or are there other tips?
I'm not an idiot and understand there are certain situations where I should keep the laptop hidden, but I'm really just looking for advice from someone has travelled a lot in a similar place with a laptop.
