this is really up to u, we are all different , and depends on how much you want to carry(and what u will use ) , for me , always a good smart phone and my kindle are a must ,

DLSR cameras are heavy and take to much room, same with laptops

I take my iPhone and iPad every time with me, and now I've got a RavPower 14000mAh which can charge them at the same time. It's fantastic.

The Travel Tech community will also often talk general tech, geeks that we are, so don't worry if you see posts about email applications, reboots and the latest drive or memory options.

Ok...I'm the weirdo who doesn't carry a smart phone.I basically hate phones,texting,twitter and instagram I can careless about any of it.I carry the Samsung galaxy tab 2 7 inch with otter box... I can format 64GB micro sd cards to plug everything I need in it.I have an Easy Acc 120000 mAh 4 port USB power bank...look it up...a techie dream!Along with a Voltiac
Fuse 10W Solar Laptop Charger

Seen here... http://www.voltaicsystems.com/fuse10w.shtml
the solar panels charge a battery pack that can charge my power bank...which essentially means I can drop off the grid...which I do from time to time...but Primarily I need that power because my main love is photography and I can keep my 2 Nikon's powered always..
Along with being able to charge friends phones keep LED lights on as long as I like and my Tablet in perpetual use during my down time.
It works for me...but as mentioned above...everyone is different

I only carry my smartphone. It's all I need and it can really accomplish lots of things (surfing the internet, texting, taking photos). Some people bring their laptops but I find it unnecessary since I go to vacation to enjoy the place and not to be in front of the computer.

If you want to get better photos it's good to bring a DSLR and learn some photography tips.

Phone, camera and ipod. I only use the phone for a clock/alarm and to access wifi and to have in case of emergency.

When I did my trip to SEA I broke my phone and bought a cheap tablet. I have since sold it because it wasn't very good but I have been tempted to pick up a better quality 7" tablet since they take up very little space and make browsing and emails much easier as well as it would allow you to upload pictures etc.

- 11' inch Macbook Air (never gotten into the tablets - I need a keyboard)
- iPhone 4 (only real reason I need a smartphone is GPS)
- Nikon d5100 w/ 35 mm prime lens
- Nikon e8800 (old camera that's served me incredibly well since '06 and still going strong - will continue using it to compliment the SLR until I get another lens or two)
- Canon s110 (stealthy little point and shoot that takes solid indoor photos)
- Pair of headphones
- Too many chargers, including a generic portable iPhone charger that ensures my phone battery never runs out.

Smart phones are handy but iphones r too small to be any good. Not sure why people buy those hyped.up.pieces of junk.

Samsung Note 3 kills the iphones.

Some people spend a lot of time in internet cafes. It's funny walking past an internet cafe and seeing it packed.
