I hear ya. I'd love for a laptop to be my main computer, but issues like this make it impossible. I have a Mac Pro at home with 1TB of disk space, and I used Time Machine to back that up to a 1TB external drive connected to my Airport Extreme (and of course if my house burns down I'll lose everything and have to jump off a cliff). Basically my method is to keep the master copy of all my files on my Mac Pro, and I treat all the hard drives of all my other computers as scratch space, periodically "replicating" them to the Pro. When possible, I have shortcuts to the Pro's disk space on all my computers, and using this shortcut I work directly off the Pro's files when I am within range. I suppose if I was ambitious I would set up a VPN so I could get to the Pro when I'm away. If a strategy like this is appealing but you don't have another computer, you could always get a Drobo, or another form of redundant network-based disk space to offload files to.
 
I haven't found a satisfying solution to the cloud question. Ideally, everything would be in the cloud, and from whatever computer, or whatever location, you could just connect up, but I don't think technology is quite there yet, and I've just been frustrated every time I've tried. I think the reason the iPod is still a viable product is that the cloud isn't ready yet, and when it is ready, products like the iPod which have a chunk of disk space will probably rapidly disappear. I keep my .Mac account around because I keep trying to be optimistic about the iDisk, but it's a half-baked solution and they don't make it easy to synchronize files. Google Docs is supposedly allowing file storage, and you can bet they are working on a 100% cloud solution, but I don't think it's there yet. And of course iTunes doesn't make it easy. If several computers with varying iTunes/iPhoto libraries could somehow feed into a master library on a central computer/cloud, that would help. Maybe there's a way to do this that I'm just not aware of. If there's no way to do that, I have a feeling it's coming soon though, because with the iPad we're going to need to synchronize the iPad's iTunes/etc. with that of our iPhones and other computers, and that will (hopefully) provide a distributed model and alleviate the need to keep your entire iTunes library on a laptop hard drive.
 
I have several friends who immediately send all their pictures to Flickr, and I do lots if iPhone videos, which I immediately put on YouTube, so that's one solution, although it's time consuming to constantly be uploading, and it doesn't work so well if you want to keep high qualityretain high-quality versions aroundof your pictures, etc.

Anyway, sorry, my response is more of a commisseration than a solution. :-)
