Well, the only taking carry on luggage does limit it quite a lot...the X100 would be ideal with that. Now on the laptop/iPad issue....

On my last trip, I took my iPad (original) for one purpose. Backups. I have the SD card adapter. Every night in the hotel, I would add all of the card contents to my iPad for a second location of files...just in case. The I would put the card away, locking it to prevent write/erase and used a new card the next day. The iPad would then be on the hotel wifi and ALL of the photos would upload to iCloud for an addtional layer of light travel security.

I have the new 13" MB Air 2012 (8G RAM) with Aperture 3 loaded. Am I taking that on my family vacation in November? Nope. I'll probably just take my iPad OR my wife's new iPad 3 (more likely) and use the same strategy.
