Do you take your laptop with you on holiday, or visit an internet cafe while away?

Or do you actually spend your whole holiday internet-free?

We've taken the laptop on a few trips, but they've just been road-trips a few hours away. Since we bought our iPod Touches, we just use those to get on the internet.

INTERNET-FREE? What are those words you speak of......?!?!

I've never been internet free. Ok, scratch that. I'm internet free on a cruise in the middle of the ocean, where it costs an arm and my 2 legs to connect. Otherwise, BOTH Chris and I bring our laptops on vacations I do not bring mine on a day trip (like when we go to Lake George or NYC).. but I have the internet on my phone, so I kinda always have it. I also have an iTouch.

Yeah, I just got internet on my phone, so even if we're somewhere that doesn't have a wireless connection (for my iPod), I can use my phone!

I will take my laptop if we're going to a condo or cabin that has free internet. We also have to take it sometimes on the chance that DH will need to be accessible by e-mail every day with his work. I don't mind if I have to go internet-free for a week. In fact, I sort of enjoy it as long as I know it won't last too long

We usually take the laptop. We didn't on the honeymoon; maybe we'll forgo it again it the future.

Internet free here. Mostly anyway. Dh just got a Blackberry a few months ago, so we do have some internet access. I tried checking in on JM while on vacation last week and it took foooooooorever to load, so I gave up. I did few searches here and there but that's it.

What's an iPod touch? I'm really out of touch with technology. I think I should really invest in an iPod.

I use it for music, I have ALL my music on it.. it's all touch screen (hence iPod touch), you can get online with it.. sometimes I acces JM on it, check my mail on it, etc. It's one of my favorite technology gadgets, I'm not sure how I ever got by without it, lol!

Oh yeah, I my iPod Touch! I use it mainly for the internet. I even use it at home if DH is on the laptop. I also have music on it, and we'll hook it up to the car stereo on a long car trip.

I hook mine up for an 8 minute car ride to the grocery store because I prefer my own music, and have particular songs I like to hear in the car!! LOL

I use it in bed.. before I fall asleep, to check my e-mail one last time. I'm such an addict.
