You might find it useful to have various free software tools
accessible on a USB "thumb drive" or other portable media. If so,
check out

You can have, among other things, your own customized version of
Portable Firefox, the OpenOffice suite, the GIMP graphics editor, and
a number of other applications all resident on such a device.

One incredibly useful add-on for firefox, by the way, is Zotero.
Created by the folks at George Mason University, it is designed for
online research. You can capture bibliographic data from various
journal and book sites "automagically" as well as do web page
captures, links, list related references, make either free-form or
cut-and-paste notes, and more. Then, you can export bibliographic
information in standard formats if you wish to do a formal paper.

See for more info on this incredibly useful tool.
