That is what I did on my visit to SF (well, I had 770 instead because
back then). 
The laptop was too hard to use in the very cramped
tourist class (which was very uncomfortable even without the laptop).
The flight had free wireless lan as far as I remember but it required
some multi-digit
"security code" that was impossible to remember and pain to enter with
the virtual

I have 4GB space on my N800 and the cards are full. I have plenty of
audio books and music.
They are excellent on bus etc.

As somebody told already.
However, if you was planning to use the bluetooth keyboard, obviously it
turns that
off too because wireless off means wireless off including bluetooth.

I couldn't use the 770 on flight from SF to Denver because the flight
crew didn't
understand that it was not a phone and I didn't want to argue about that
I was already so tired that I slept most of the trip until the plane
flew to 
severe turbulence in Denver.

I carry laptop nowadays only on business trips. On vacation trips I can
live with N800 only.

Best Regards
