Based on my recent 10 day visit to Switzerland I would  have thought the overall capacity of the iPad would be much too small for a 5 month trip, I am using a D800E so nef files are large but I came home with over 120 Gb of image files and my wife with a D800 had just over 100 Gb to her name. We take a rMBP and off load the images to the internal SSD and a backup copy is made to an external bus driven HD.

Gosh, Art, 12 GB a day! And there was me thinking I was being a bit rash in clicking off 2GB a day! But admittedly, your files are a lot larger.

I did use a netbook on a previous trip, but found it heavier than I liked to carry. For my forthcoming trip I will be using 7 inch Android tablet to back up on USB flash drives. But an even smaller rig, with more storage, is shown in Andreas Bank's blog at:
