    Don't spend too much on it. Apart from the usual theft risk, there's also just general damage risk.

    And don't make it your main computer. It should be something you take with you on your travels to watch YouTube, answer a few emails, and maybe do a little light-duty work. I wouldn't be bringing a computer that has all my family photos, financial information, heavier-duty work, etc.

    M1/M2 for the godly battery. One charger for both phone and laptop.

    Make sure the phone is unlocked and can use eSIMs

    I just bought an ex-lease Chromebook and put Linux on it.
    It's an absolute toaster but the battery lasts for an entire workday, it's light and the most important bit - it costed me about 40 euros, which means I won't be crying for long if someone nicks it.

      Sounds like you went for a pretty budget-friendly option! While a Chromebook with Linux can be practical for some tasks, I personally prefer the performance and capabilities of a higher-end laptop. But hey, as long as it suits your needs and doesn't break the bank, that's what matters most. isn't it? Kek

          Speak for yourself.
          I just purchased a laptop for my kid, but not the brand you mentioned earlier. Used my Tap card for it.

      Brands like Acer, ASUS, and Lenovo often offer affordable options that can handle basic tasks.

    Get one with long battery life. A smaller 14 inch screen laptop with a big battery will last like twice as long as one with a 17 inch screen. Check slickdeals for laptop deals.

    I got some really nice expensive Samsung one to travel with but also to potentially replace my pc since it's 11 years old at this point. In the end I did not replace my pc and now I just got this expensive shit to carry around that I don't even wanna take to many places because of it, so I recommend getting one that is 90% as good but 20% of the price

    Either buy a cheapo Chromebook or get an M2 MacBook Air.

    I'd just get a cheap budget phone, like a Redmi Note of some sort.

    Phone? General stuff? Ask /spg/ in SighSee
    -Compatible frequencies for the regions you're travelling through

    -eSIM was mentioned earlier.
    Multi-SIM might be handy as well

    iOS and MacOS both have strong FRP, but I'm not sure if that makes it less of a target for theft.
