Asus Eee PC 1000H – This has been my primary netbook for the last 4 months, and I expect to use it for most of my on-site blogging.
HP Mini 1000 – I happen to have this as a loaner, and at just over 2 pounds, I figure it doesn’t hurt to have a backup with me in case my Eee PC battery dies or my machine crashes or get stepped on or something.
Sierra Wireless AirCard for connecting to Sprint’s 3G wireless network – WiFi access is notoriously spotty during CES, so I figured I should go prepared. I’m renting this card for a week from Rovair.
Mini-tripod for the Canon PowerShot A590/S camera I’m using to take this photo, and which I will use to shoot photos and video from Vegas.
Dell Axim X50v PDA with Windows Mobile 2003SE – It’s an oldy but a goody, and this PDA is loaded up with music and movies to watch during the plane ride, phone numbers and appointments I’ll need during the week, and in a pinch I can use its WiFi adapter to get online if I need to.
Sony PCM-D50 digital audio recorder – I don’t expect to use this recorder very much, but as a radio journalist I feel silly leaving home without it. If I need to conduct any audio only interviews they’ll be recorded with this device, and I’m hoping to get a chance to compare it to some new recorders for bradlinder.net, where I frequently write about digital audio production gear.
Kensinton travel mouse – Best $15 I ever spent. This tiny optical mouse takes up next to no room in my gear bag and has a retractable cord. Since it’s USB, it works with any netbook, no setup required.
Sony MDR-7506 headphones (in the background) – Again, the audio geek in me figures if I’m taking my pro audio recorder I should also take some pro audio headphones. They’re also much better than earbuds for downing out sound on the plane.
