Welcome to Gaia! ::

So. Our entire school district got laptops to use for homework and school stuff. Did anyone get any?? Are you using it right now? ( I'm actually using mine right now in school :3) Do they ban a lot of websites?

I'm in college, so I got my own laptop, and nothing is banned, because it's college.

MY school got laptops too. The government gave them all of the highschools in the entire country. I'm using mine RIGHT at this very moment. And, ALL of the laptops are the same brand - MSI. Unfortunately, they were pre-installed with some crappy Operating System named Edubuntu so a bunch of them manually changed the operating systems to Windows 7. I wish I can upgrade mine :/ My school banned facebook and other social network sites on the school's wifi thingyy... :]

That is what she said
I just graduated from HS,
and when I was still there, we only used mini HP laptops
whenever we had to do a power point or write papers in class. =

I don't know why they did this for me in 2nd grade, but in high school, they want us to buy our own damn laptops emotion_facepalm

I never had laptops in high school, but when I went to college I had my own laptop. I could do whatever I wanted when I was there.

I'm going to an art school, somehow.
Well, there are 4 different departments, 3 of them MUST HAVE laptops.
Or else you'll get bad marks, 'cause more than 50% of the lessons use laptops.
Like learning photoshop and such.

But I don't understand how normal schools use them to take notes.
Even at my school, nearly everyone write down their notes on a paper.
It's so much easier for both my eyes and memory to learn by reading handwritten notes.

It might be easier for people with a bad handwriting, but well ....
We're all different huh?

They have laptops at my school too, but the freshman, sophmores, and juniors are the only ones that have them. I'm a senior so I don't get one... but I really don't need one. Those laptops are really really slow,and most of the decent sites are blocked. Aywas is the only decent one that you can get on with them.
theyre quicker than school computers

My school has laptops! Only a few, though. Most are desktops.
