There are NAS devices that run Linux and you get SSH shell access to
them. In theory, SVN could be installed, then you could run svnserve
in the NAS.

NASs might not be a portable as a laptop, though.

Also, note that whether you are carrying a laptop, or USB stick or
other storage device, if you are traveling internationally, those
devices are subject to seizure as you pass through customs. Basically
the reasoning is that the contents of such devices are legally no
different from the contents of your baggage. However, customs agents
generally have neither the equipment nor the expertise to carry out
the inspection, so the devices get sent to a central inspection
center. It can take weeks, or even months, to get your devices back.
