A useful extension to this suggestion is to include the definition of
the global macro in the "profile.do" that Stata runs automatically on
start-up. This way you do not need to change anything from one computer
to the other, just include the global macro in your do-files as
suggested by Sebastien.

you could use a global macro and then use. then you only have to change 
the macro var.

global p ""I:\mydata\stata\whatever1\"

use "$p\data.dta", clear
