I really need some advice on what to take while im traveling!
I thought of a Ipod touch because its small, can get wifi and is easy to carry around during the day while I potter about. But it only connects to wifi and not mobile internet like a phone would. Bit worried it might be a bit hard to use with the internet if no free wifi is around as this would be the main use for me.

Also does anyone know the availability of wifi around big cities in Aus?? Are there many cafes with it or is it in big tourist spots?

I have also decided to take a netbook because I want something with a keyboard (i definitely don't want a tablet and wont be persuaded lol).

But my main question is whether taking both a netbook and Ipod touch would be worth it? I don't want to spend £170 on a Ipod if there is basically no point! I might settle for just a SUPER light netbook.

Any input would be appreciated! x

An iPod touch is enough!

I brought both macbook and ipod touch with me to china, hk, macau, taiwan during my summer 2009 trip. however, i barely used my laptop because i could find everything on my itouch or on the hostel's pc.

Best,

Richard

really?! I will be blogging and emailing quite alot.
Will it effect whether i need a net book or a Ipod touch more?
I just thought a proper keyboard on a net book would make blogging and emailing easier?!
how long did you go traveling for "Night Buggie"?
