I have seen laptops with a hadrdisk running in simular situations so a 
hardiskless laptop would be able to handle that without a problem.
we are talking about scrap computers anyway, get a few spares in case 
one fails after a year or two, a transmitter is more likely to fail.
why not just try it on a site that you have easy access too first and 
maybe you like so much that you put them on mountain tops as well
