no if they are used solely for educational or academic purposes.

i think it isn't bad as long as there are restrictions and these restrictions are strictly implemented.

They were rarely seen in my high school when I was attending, so don't even know if they would or wouldn't be allowed. In fact, now that I think about it, I was the only one of my friends that had their own laptop. I never brought mine because it was too much of a hassle to bring to school, especially since I barely took notes in the first place (save for math and chemistry, high school was super easy for me), and I didn't have it until senior year, when I barely even needed notes.

They allow them in college, though. Some classmates get irritated, but screw them. I'm doing my class work, and since mine's a tablet pc, I don't even have loud key strokes to deal with. They're just jealous of my mad techs.

I think its a resistance to the change in times/technology. Laptops have gotten cheaper and more accessible and sometimes its just more beneficial for students to carry around laptops for projects and schoolwork. I mean, who can make it to the computer room all the time and what if its crowded in there? Sure, there are dangers of being "exposed" to certain content/sites but thats the way it is these days. Just make rules of playing games/watching vids inside class and other quiet areas very strict.

That being said, if I was still in HS and had a laptop, I wouldnt be bringing it to school unless I had a car/ride home. Its just too valuable for it to be stolen by other kids.

NOO DUN BAN LAPTOPS~~ (well my school bans all eletronict stuff mp3 ipods and all those i think their about too ban digetil watchs too!!)

If laptops were banned just so we couldn't play games, then cellphones should banned too. And we can still play games on the school computers. If people wanna play Halo instead of doing their work, that's their bag anyway.

okay laptops are really useful.
you can type notes in the laptop instead wasting lots of paper and get tired of writing.. well its good to write..but typing is way faster.
when you're bored at school, you can just watch movie on the laptop or play games?
and you can find notes and stuff in the laptop.. so yea.= ='' it is useful for school actully.

=_= you know what i feel, ye you're right
i hate writing on notebooks
i use my laptop alot,
they shouldnt be banned.

i like u now

If you're talking about college, then why bother stopping them? If they don't want to pay attention during lectures or tutorials what's forcing them to attend in the first place? Even in high school if you're bored enough, you can be distracted by basically anything. I daydream in class all the time
