Laptop for Dental School?

So, my brother wants to buy me a laptop as a graduation present. The problem is that I heard that at UCLA, a specific laptop comes in your "kit" (I'm not sure what they call it). Is this true? Or is there only software that comes in the kit? If so, is this the same for all other Cali dental schools (requiring specific laptops)? Hope this makes sense!

At the interview, you will sign a paper stating that you will purchase a laptop w/ required specs. It actually will be a laptop the school gets us and added into part of our fees. I believe it'll be a P3 Gateway. Also, we will be getting a pager and loupes as well. UOP has required laptops that's also part of your fees. For UCSF and LLU, there are no particular required laptop, so its whatever you choose. I dont think there's a laptop requirement for USC as well. Hope this helps.
