Laptop & projector
Amazingly flexible. I can use it to show texts I've pre-prepared (doesn't need to be PowerPoint - can also be Word documents, images, whatever); can use it to have one Word document open throughout the lesson in which I "gather" any incidental language, then save it and send it to students at end of lesson; can use it to pull up materials that I hadn't anticipated using but that I know I have stored on my hard drive...
Danger of relying on it too much - if there's no projector or if there's another problem the jitters set in!
Need to carry loudspeakers too if the room is big.
IPOD & speakers
It's possible to store CDs, DVDs, podcasts and countless other media in enormous quantity. For example, every coursebook CD in your library will take up only a fraction of the available space.
Transferring the audio and video is quite easy but takes some discipline.
