Connect where ever you are? You will need wifi unless you are going down the 4G/3G route which could end up expensive with data charges. There should be ample free wifi hotspots though. I would not do any online banking using a hotspot.

we have a camper van. what I would suggest most important long battery life, but fast enough cpu/ram not to be frustrating too slow. we bought a net book but its too slow, also none of the 12v connectors to recharge the netbook would work, if you get a 12v connector from pcworld etc make sure they will take it back if it does not work.

what we do now is use a smartphone and also tether its internet wifi to a laptop. [make sure you have unlimited internet and tethering on your smartphone contrct] we use three as the provider which can be used in several EU places at no extra.
