I'm tired of having to pull out the laptop and putting it in separate bin. I've got all my clothes and my toys in my backpack but my back has been incessantly complaining lately. It doesn't help when DW hands you the carry-on... and before you know it, you're lugging around a guerrilla.
I might get a Surface 3 and be done with it. Satiate my need to "veg out" on those long flights when I just want to watch movies w/o having to swipe the card. At least Surface doesn't have to have its own bin.
When going through the airport, I really didn't mind lugging the laptop and placing in a separate bin. Didn't bring an extra keyboard but did leave the mouse and adapter in my computer bag to get scanned separately. The computer bag came in handy too for stuffing my light jacket and all the
stuff from my pocket and letting them go through the scanner.
That said, next time if I really don't need to connect home, I'll probably just bring along the smart phone and travel lighter.
