What do others here with a D700 use to backup their files while on vacation?

I know the best strategy is to take along a portable computer (MacBook Pro in my case) and then make daily backups to various media... but I only have an old 17" Powerbook which is rather cumbersome and probably wouldn't fit in my new Tamrac trolley/backpack and I don't want to shill out for a MBPro when after returning from the trip I know I will find out there is a new version of it with more RAM, a faster processor and probably the same if not lower price tag...

I have a D700 and am using these ridiculously expensive 16MB CF cards (compared to SD). I have a card reader but that won't do me any good without a MBP to hook it up to. I have an iPad but that would quickly get filled in the first few days so that's not a great option either... that and the fact that I wouldn't have saved any of my RAW files using the iPad.
