Air

For years I´d been dragging heavy laptops to backup & edit my photos while overlanding and backpacking… but I´m trying to loose weight (trying to carry only the essentials) for my bikepacking trip through South America.
Although MacBook Air is thin, light, and powerful, I´m still not a 100% sure if I´ll be carrying a notebook (or just a Tablet and a smartphone instead) …. but if I do carry a notebook, I´m pretty sure this will be the one!
