Do you bring disposable phones and laptops to conferences?

Defcon is around the corner and I am unsure how secure most people are. Do most use burner phones and laptops they only use at conferences? I know of a couple who do. Would using a virtual machine be good enough? I have an old laptop, but it only keeps a half hour charge when not connected and weighs 8 lbs or so.

I’d appreciate feedback on this.

I moved 2 posts to an existing topic: How do I “not get hacked” at security conferences like Defcon and Blackhat?
