As for privacy; you have none. The DHS recently reiterated its directive that computers can be seized and examined for as long as they damned well like, without just cause or reasonable suspicion. If your data is particularly sensitive, you'd best look into encryption, or place it on a USB drive that you can remove and carry separately (or both!).
Thinking of trying Dropbox? Use this referal link and we'll both get an extra 250MB of storage.

The Proper Way to Clean LCD Screens Of Your Laptop or Flat Screen Monitors - Digital Inspiration
Best advise ever for cleaning a screen. I use canned air gently to remove finger crud ?whatever that stuff is? dust and the like from the keys.
As for charging, you won't be able to input through a usb from a solar panel to charge the battery or run the device. In fact, I'm pretty sure any forced power into the USB ports is a motherboard killer.
Purchase a spare battery, keep it half charged until you leave for the trip, or buy one of the giant ones they are selling now.

Charging over a USB Port is not possibe. USB has 5V and they are only going out of the laptop never back in. Charger for USB will maybee work with small units what you could charge with your USB Port from the Laptop. The only way would be a solar Module what supports at least 19V and 3.2A power. This would bee a real big panel. There you can buy a lots of batteries.

Not sure where you live so this may be helpful or not. The optician built into most Walmarts and most drugstores now sell microfiber eyeglass cleaning cloths for about a buck or so. Great for cleaning screens without lint.
