The bottomline is this NEXTO unit is PURPOSE built - notebook PCs are not. It's aimed at people who need high-speed backups with portability, extreme environment tolerance, quick and simple usability and absolute reliability without much of a concern for cost.

By the way, there are camera shops now offering these things for rentals.

In February of next year, I'll be filming a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro.

But the Nexto means I can offload using "AA" batteries instead of having to recharge laptop batteries.

In fact at the end of the month I'm headed to the heart of Brazil and the Amazon River. The last leg of our trip involves a glorified Cessna, and each passenger has a weight limit. Now, by not taking the laptop (4.5 pounds), I can take some other gear (like a Canon 7D with lens) that will add more to the finished piece.

The Nexto ain't cheap. But there is something to be said for traveling light. In my case, that something is usually said to my bank or credit card company, unfortunately.
That certainly makes sense for jobs like that. I'm sure there are several people that could take advantage of that convenience and portability. For the rest of us, their HDD version (Nexto DI) seems a bit more reasonable although it lacks the AA capability. B&H has those for $533.95. That being said, I can still get a laptop for close to that price although the drive would be smaller.
