Both my husband and I are going back to school this fall (what better way to make use of unemployment right?) and we're considering our computing options.
He will be going for architecture, I will be going for anthropology/social work. I know he will need a more powerful computer than I will and that we currently have.
We have an aging laptop and a frankenstein desktop (built from bits and pieces of other computers).
We're trying to decide what option makes the most sense.
- We each get a laptop, mine a basic one, his a higher end one capable of running the programs he'll need.
-Buy a new more powerful desktop and an average laptop/netbook for portability
-Some other option I haven't considered yet.
Do you even really NEED a laptop in college? Are students really typing away in class rather than good old fashioned pen and paper?
Thanks for your input!

My husband and I both go to school. We have 2 older laptops and 2 brand new desktops. We no longer use our laptops for school anymore, however, when I did, it was a pain to carry around the campus plus have my backpack. I would highly suggest getting a netbook to use in class and at least one desktop computer. The netbook will be small enough to carry around but still be able to do what you need to do. My professor told us that the people who make the best grades are the ones who type their notes in class.
