This question is for third and fourth year students (or residents) that travelled some for third and fourth year. I am considering buying a laptop before the beginning of my third year. I think it would be most convenient for traveling, etc. I have been told, however, that I would be sorry if I bought a laptop, as they are much more of a hassle for everyday use. I was wondering what kind of accommodations were provided by rotation sites that provided housing. Do the rooms even have a space for a desktop computer? Would there ever be a need to use my own computer at the hospital or clinic? Any advice on laptop vs. desktop would be appreciated.
