That's a big `IF' there. I have been with electricity (for recharging my laptop) but without WiFi for reasonable lengths of time. It was awfully nice having full TeX Live on my laptop so I could still run pdflatex on my documents.

As a matter of fact that was the principle reason I went to a MacBook Air rather than an iPad! I now use an iPad Air but NOT for ``real work''; it's a wonderful system for using the WEB and email (well, I still dislike the glass keyboard) and other net based stuff when I have a good connection and I do lots of reading of newspapers, magazines and books at all times.

Good Luck,
