Prior to leaving in 2007 we bought two similar laptops(Dell Latitude 640).They were programmed with the same nav.programs including satellitecommunicationprograms,WiFi antennaprogram and e-mail compression software from Mailasail.In this way we allways had a backup should one computer fail.During our Pacific crossing the keyboard of our mainlaptop was splashed with saltwater.We took all buttons away,cleaned with cottontops for hours,and dried with a fan for 48hours.
The same laptop is still our main nav.computer and both laptops are still working.
The conclusion is to bring two similar laptops with the same programs to have a backup.
