Work computer

I am thinking of getting a laptop computer for the field since many companies apps can't work with an Apple like I have.
My question is, if I really just need it to download work orders and upload site photos which computer would be good enough.
I was looking at netbooks, but are they capable of this?

If that is all you are doing, then one of the netbooks would work. Just remember you will need a usb cd drive to load programs from disk, or upload the install program over a network connection.

How are you planning on uploading and downloading in the field? A mobile broadband plan?

If so there are some great deals out there for a netbook for cheap with a mobile broadband plan. I was at the Verizon store a couple of weeks back upgrading our phones. And I saw they had some netbooks for $99 with a new broadband plan.
