Recovery from total loss.

I understand how, with the right backups, and "bootable media", I could recovery from most problems, but don't know how, or even if it's possible, to recover from a total loss, like a fire, or theft.
Insurance would cover replacing the laptop, but would I be able to recover my "systems". A new laptop may have slightly different hardware, and its drivers, not to mention operating system, so I presume it would not be as simple as "overlaying" my old stuff. I have Acronis, and ext hard drive (hopefully wouldn't be "lost", in the same event).
Don't have this issue, now, but, after the event would be a bit late to think about it.

Have you thought about 'Cloud Storage', that way all your files could be stored and accessed anywhere in the world- provided you had the right access codes.
I appreciate it is not as fast to upload to the cloud, however set to do an overnight upload should fix the problem, apart from if you have a broadband limit on your account.
