Are there charges for off-line computer use?

I seem to remember that if I just want to, say, transfer pictures to a zip drive that there's no charge. Only if connected to the internet. Is that correct? Thanks.

Prices for bottles of liquor purchased onboard

I know I've seen this info but can't find it. Could someone let me know what, say, a bottle of Smirnoff (or equivalent) will cost if we buy it onboard? Thanks.
