Do you think its easy enough to bring a desktop out to UM? I live in Northern N.J. so I am most likely going to be flying back and forth for holidays and summer breaks. Is there any problems with leaving a desktop in the dorm (except for summer break)for the vacations? Is there a REAL advantage to bringing a laptop?
Plz. drop your info

I wish I had laptop personally... it would be nice to be able to bring it with me to classes and the library.
I type faster than I write so I could prolly take better notes if I had a laptop.

You should get a laptop because you will be flying back and forth between N.J. and if you wanna take some work back w/ you, it'll be easier to do on a laptop. The mobility makes it easy to take to the lib and just plug it in. And the dorm rooms are TINY, I would not want my desktop occcupying so much space. With a laptop I could do hw sitting on my bed.

I think it depends on your financial situation. Laptops have an advantage because they're portable and small - which is an issue in the dorms. HOWEVER, laptops are expensive, and if you have a desktop already, you may want to just bring that with you and see if it meets your needs or not. I don't think there is a problem (in terms of security) leaving a desktop over the breaks. To be honest, it's probably safer then than when school is in session and people are coming and going all the time. U-M dorms are locked 24/7 and rooms lock automatically when the door is closed. After a rash of thefts a few years ago, the University got serious about security and now there are almost no problems. Laptops are an easy theft target - so if you get one, be sure to buy a lock.
