inkless @ 04:36 pm: Laptops
Hey guys, just wondering what you think of the laptops GCC gives freshmen, specifically those of you who have had them in recent years.

I read the specs on the 2005 freshman laptops, and the only thing that concerned me was the 12.1" size...how did that work for you?

Do you think I should bring my own laptop or are the GCC ones acceptable?

I love my laptop. I don't think the screen width is too small (but, who knows, you might get a different model) and I've had no problems with it. The only thing I dislike about them is the external CD drive but I don't really use it except to watch movies.

Like charmling said, you can bring your own laptop (you seen different one floating around once in a while). Just remember, since your tuition is paying for the laptop GCC provides, the help desk at the college only fixes problems for those since they're under warranty (so if you break a non-issued GCC laptop/desktop, they can't help you). A friend of mine brought his desktop and hasn't had any trouble, so it just a risk you take (I plan on bringing my desktop to school next year, as well).

Hope that helped :-)
