lolz, my school has 100 laptops for a reason

What do you mean? Our own laptops? Or the school's? My school fundraised a lot of money and now we have like 22 Macs. There's a lock or something that prevents us from going to forbidden websites.....Like Games and other noneducational stuff....

Well, High Schools provide their own computers so there's no need to bring your own.

In college classes, their attitude is they're getting paid no matter how little you pay attention so they don't mind you failing so much

EDIT: oh, yeah, I suppose laptops could be used for taking notes. I never thought of that because no one in my school has ever used one. We kind of live in the bronze age

gosh, i wish i could take my own laptop to school that would be awesome ^^
we do have laptops on our school, but every 5 min. there's somebody who's asking what we're doing, pretty annoying so >.<" but if there's no one around you could play games or listen music i guess =] but you can't on the computers, they have this programme where they check what you're doing.
That's also the reason why all the laptops are in use and the pc's are being left behind x"D.

No, they shouldn't. They're at least better than the school's old censored one.

I don`t know . We have to do the traditonal pen and paper thing .
I don`t really care if they ban laptops or not .
One thing I know though is that my school hasn`t banned CR from the non-educational sites .
I haven`t tried going on but my friend has . She watches dramas suring Com Tech . XD

No. I run a tech club. For a school to ban laptops would not only ruin my club but it would ruin the easiest way to stay organized in class. Besides if you are in high school its your responsibility to not play games. If you choose not to take notes then thats your problem because half the teachers wont give a crap if you fail. If you dont have the respect to listen to your teachers then they will not give you a second thought.

no way! I can't live without mine.
It would be a pain to not have a computer near you when you're sitting in class.

well i've never brought my laptop to school just to take notes.
i'd rather write it than type it.
and plus it might distract others from doing their work.
cuz some of my classmates are very bitchy.
when one brings something, they'd want you to get rid of it soon...
they'd also argue with the teacher about bringing laptop to class.
"why do you let him/her use it and not me/us?"
since most of them only play games and stuff like that.
that's how bitchy they are.

Elementary, Middle, and High School, I don't think laptops should be allowed, cuz there is no reason to have one and even you bring one, you kids are just gonna be playing games all day and not learning. The people behind you are also just gonna be staring at you playing your game instead of listening. Very distracting.

College. It doesn't matter. The professors salaries aren't tied to how well you do in class, so they don't really care as long as you don't have sound on.
