I'm going on vacation for 3 months this summer. I'll be traveling in the U.S. West Coast, Shanghai and Tokyo. I have an 8 inch tablet, so I was considering leaving my laptop at home. If I have my laptop I'll be tempted to stay in my hotel more and play video games. I want to get out and do adventuring and a laptop might weigh me down.

Are there reasons I'm not thinking of that I might need my laptop that I can't do with my tablet and a bluetooth keyboard? 3 months is a long time without a PC.

For us PC users it seems like a long time to go without, but there are a lot of people who live life with just a phone and are fine. I can't think of any reason why you might need it, I say go ahead and leave it home and enjoy your vacation to the fullest!

yeah, I used to bring my laptop when my family and I went to the beach. Long story short- I spent the whole duration of the vacay with just playing games on my laptop and did not get to swim at all Q ^Q whenever I go out for vacays nowadays, I just leave my laptop at home so I can fully enjoy the vacation c:

Leave the laptop at home and just bring the tablet.
3 Months may seem like a long time, but you're traveling, I'm not saying you won't have any time for games but I will say that you have better things to do than play games.
And when you really do feel the urge to play some videogames when traveling around in Asia, just visit one of the many local arcades or bring a portable game device like a 3DS.

If you have basic access to e-mail, social media, and of course you could always stream some anime if you want with a tablet.

You are going on a vacation so enjoy it, you computer will be there when you get back, but the world will remain only in your memories, so make great memories, and enjoy as much of the world as you can.
