I may not be understanding your exact question, but a memory stick is no more than a disk to put data on. You would still need a computer to access any of it and it has no relation whatsoever to the internet. Unless there is some sort of memory stick that you are referring to that I am unaware of.  [attachment=4739]This is what I'm talking about. It's great for keeping data on, as you can get some pretty cheap, depending on the size (number of megabytes or gigabytes). I use one all the time to take data to and from work.A laptop is a much bigger investment but would eliminate the need for a memory stick as long as you took it around with you everywhere.
how much memory is this work taking up on your computer? By a factor of what, do you expect this to increase by?You can pick 4Gb memory sticks up for just a few pounds, would you need more than that?
It can be difficult to add any more hard drive space on a laptop, but you would never need to for things like Word documents and what-not. There are memory sticks with lots of space as well, and the neat thing about those is that you can just put it in your pocket or purse. BUT, you need a computer to access what's on the memory stick. If you want to be able to work on that stuff or show it to someone who does not have a computer, you would need a laptop.In conclusion:A laptop is a portable computer. High expense, good portability, plenty of hard disk space.A memory stick is like a rewritable disc. VERY good portability, low expense, still plenty of disk space for what you are doing (it sounds to me) as long as you buy one that is about 4 gig.
Laptop: Price: Usually anywhere from US $300.00 to US $2,000.00.Hard drive space: 16 GB to 250 GB (though most start around 160 GB now)Memory stick:Price: US $12.00 to US $150.00Space: 256 MB (megabytes) to 16 GB
