With all of my "family pictures" on my portable devices i think unless it is highly required i would leave it behind.

Leaving aside how offensive this ruling is, any data on my laptop I actually care about is heavily encrypted. If some border patrol agent wants to try cracking it, he's welcome to take a shot.

And, no, I won't be giving up my password.

Its already been established that the password is covered under the 5th amendment to refuse to incriminate one's self. Even if I were constitutionally required to give up my password, I might have just forgotten it. Its a pretty big password.
