I need to stay in Las Vegas for a month, but I won't be able to take a personal laptop with me.

I will be attending a trade conference, so I will be flying with a company laptop and tablet device. Because of this I am not sure if I will be able to take my personal laptop with me as well.

Is there any personal-use laptop rental service available in Las Vegas? Googling for "rent a computer in Las Vegas" seems to show mostly ads of laptop rentals that lease computers for presentations to companies. Is there any similar reasonably priced service for personal laptop rentals? The laptop does not need to be high-end, it will mostly be used for internet browsing, Skype and occasionally writing documents.

Alternatively, would it be possible to go through the airport carrying two laptops? (I do not intend to take my personal laptop with me unless I can take it hassle free).

    Regarding taking multiple laptops: You would not have any problems taking two laptops. Just make sure to present both of them in the TSA checkpoint and put them in a bin separate from your normal items. I have taken 3 laptops in the past and did not have any problems, other than the occasional weird look. Safe travels! – user79930 Dec 19 '17 at 10:51

    It would seem strange but shouldn't be a problem. I hade once three smartphones, two Kindles and one laptop. "Is it all yours?" - "Yes!" And the security check continued. – Neusser Dec 19 '17 at 10:55
  • I have frequently been flying with a personal laptop and a company laptop without issues. Those flights have mostly been within Europe but also several times between Europe and US. I have rarely even been asked why I was travelling with two laptops. All it meant was that I was slowed down ever so slightly at the security check because I had to use an extra tray and those trays end up quite far apart on the other side of the security check. – kasperd Dec 19 '17 at 11:49
  • I also travel internationally with multiple laptops, phone, tablet and iPod. I have never been asked about them. But I pay for it with sore shoulders from humping all that stuff around. – Peter M Dec 19 '17 at 12:29
  • I travel 30+ times a year with two laptops. No issues ever. – Aganju Dec 19 '17 at 13:05

You're unlikely to find a place to rent a laptop anywhere in the city, as that's not something most people are interested in. However it shouldn't be to hard too get a used laptop from the local Craigslist. Prices start from $100, depending on condition.

Alternatively, would it be possible to go through the airport carrying two laptops?

You can even carry five laptops at a time. There's no law that says "one laptop per person at most", people routinely carry lots of electronics without an issue.
