Lossless Compressed vs Compressed

Just got me Z6. Looks like a great camera. To save card space, I am considering 14-bit compressed raw instead of 14-bit lossless compressed raw. According to the manual, there is little difference in image quality (P. 168) but there is 36% increase in storage capacity from 1100 to 1500 on a 64G card (P. 463).  This is significant. I wonder if there is any study on the image quality comparison. I searched on this forum but found nothing.

Also, what strategy do you use to minimize the need for the expensive XQD cards? I am often on long trips. Carrying a computer with me to download images negates the benefits of taking a lightweight Z6 vs a full size DSLR.

Thanks,
