Install to a USB stick.  A 64 GB USB 3.0 SanDisk Ultra Flair is ideal.  
$15 at Walmart.  Weighs exactly 5 grams, same as a nickel.  Great form 
factor and mechanically solid:  3/16" x 7/16" x 1-1/4" and you can keep 
it stashed in your pocket encrypted with all essential records and files 
for use on multiple machines. Great for testing and experimenting, 
redundancy, extra space, cheap insurance, etc.  Not that I'm a fan of 
Walmart or that better deals can't be had, but certainly cheaper and 
less hassle than another computer to worry about.
