I’m often asked what I use on expeditions to handle the data – photos, video, emails, and more – we produce on any given trip.

The answer has never been a simple one, with an at-times unreliable and unwieldy mix of laptops and other peripherals making the journey both tough and stressful. On this expedition to the Ganges, however, things have changed with our partnership with Microsoft’s game-changing Surface Pro. A top-notch laptop merged seamlessly into a tablet form factor, the Surface Pro is the ultimate expedition “laplet”: powerful; capable of running Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and any other full-fledged software; and at a mere 2 pounds, it weighs less than a liter of water.

Microsoft asked me to share some additional thoughts on the Surface Pro before we disappeared into the mountains, and they shared them on the Surface blog. Read more here.
