Traveling professional looking for options

In the past:

  • MacBook Pro was my work station hooked up to external monitors.
  • When I traveled I'd take the MacBook Pro, shoot, back up all SD cards to hard drives


  • I have an iMac...

I'm looking for options for:

  • After I shoot for a day on set I'd like to copy all SD cards to USB hard drives, and be able to review the raw files and videos in my hotel room to verify I got everything I needed.
  • Surface GO: I have one and used it this past week, and though it worked, it struggled.
  • iPad: I have this but can't connect SD card AND usb hard drive.
  • Android: I will be testing this with a new Samsung Note 9.

Does anyone have any ideas?

My goal is not to save money, but to limit the number of different devices I have. Ideally I could do this with a new Samsung Note 9 so I could just use something I already have.

Samsung Galaxy Note9
