Please keep an open mind.

I think the open mind comment was gratuitously patronising and

You could run a 1D tethered straight on to the notebook via the PC
cable and you could have 40G or whatever to fill up and still have
change of 12K

Out of curiousity, can a 1D be tethered and uploading files while you are taking new pictures? If not, I can certainly imagine sports photographers and paparazzi needing to continously fill their 1d-mark2, and are afraid of missing the perfect cover photo for Sports Illustrated or the Enquirer. The D2H's 802.11b wireless option sending to a local laptop is one possibility, but I'm not sure there is enough bandwidth to keep up at full clip. Also, I wonder how much a full kit would weigh -- lets see, you have the 1D-mark2, a couple of 400, 500, and 600mm lenses, a couple of Quantum battery packs, laptop, more battery packs to make sure the laptop is running the whole time. Note also laptop disks are fragile when running, so you might make the whole thing unreliable by adding the laptop.
