Traveling with a laptop over the holidays? Consider a "Laptop Contingency Plan."

If you are traveling with a laptop over the holiday period then you should do your "Laptop Contingency Planning" before you head out the door. For an excellent planning guide look at Mark Shead's blog post at Productivity501. Laptops are lost, dropped, stolen, and simply fail at a very high rate. If you need to get work done then you must be prepared for one of these events by ensuring data security, preventing damage, and having accessible data backups.
