+1 for the Samsung Chromebook; don't liveaboard
, but do take it out to the islands with me and on trips for a change of scenery. You get, I believe, 200 gigabytes of online storage
free for two years when you buy; so you'll have your files/photos backed up as long as you get to a WiFi
zone on a periodic basis. It's light and small so less chance of dropping it in my opinion as well. The solid state drive eliminates a lot of the need for cooling
that regular hard drives entail (having a fan suck in salt
air continuously can't be good), and the shock properties are much better.
Also, another resurrection tip, and one I've used often on my iPhone
after I've sunk it. If possible, turn it off immediately, soak it in fresh water, and then stick it in a ziplock bag full of dry rice and seal the bag. The dry rice pulls the moisture out of the device. My iPhones are usually ready to go again in 48 hours.
