Yes, I always have my Macbook air with a CF card reader in my backpack or at the hotel.
When I'm travelling and I do alot, I change out cards several times during the day to insure I don't loose a once in a lifetime shot.
My personal preference is more smaller (8gb) than larger 16GB cards and just keep moving them to the storage package...
Ipads (from what I've read and been told)...don't store NEF's well and you can loose some resolution (agai, have only read this but, not gotten proven info)..
They do make a travelling backup drives, e.g. CF card transfers, but, they are pricey....
Another alternative, is just do buy a cheap NET book computer that has 250G of space and use is as a backup machine if you don't have a mac..servers two purposes...net access and backup when travelling , and if you break it or gets stolen..you are only out $300 max...if you look on line, you can get refrubs in the $200+ range for older models...again, you are not going to run CS6 or lightroom...just nikon transfer and move stuff back off the CF card via a USB port.
