charles skipped what i see as a highly critical question, personal
my life is on a 13" macbook air, all data, mail back decades (i do not
save all mail), etc. the whole drive is encrypted, my main reason for
moving to lion.
i have two time machine drives, one at home and one i carry on the
road. both are encrypted.
belt and braces, i also use unison to sync my laptop's home data to a
server in colo. it goes to a freebsd geli, i.e. encrypted, partition.
all keys and other critical private data are in a text file on my laptop
encrypted with gpg, which i use emacs crypt++ to access. that key file,
a bunch of x.509 certs, ... are copied to an ironkey usb.
