I know some schools require you to buy the laptop they negotiated with a specific PC vendor.ecrdoubles15 said:for the people in dental school what kind of laptops do you guys have and what kind of programs do i need on the laptop. thanks.

I wanted to ask current dental students how much they actually use a computer, and whether it is more convient just to get a laptop or save money and get a desktop?
That's exactly my thought. Why have such a powerful laptop since I won't be type any essays?rocknightmare said:i feel that if i were in law school there would be more use as I would be typing alot of paper and reports. but as dental student the only thing i can see that benefits me from a laptop is to use it with a histology cd to look at the slides. and also look at the anatomy cd if they give you one.
not sure that is worth umm 1 grand since computers are still avaliable in the libary all day long.
I agree that there isn't much use for a computer while in dental school, but you may be surprised to find out that you will have to write an occasional paper. The people in my class that plopped down a lot of money on their laptops are the computer geeks who are inclined to want the latest, fastest thing on the market. They end up using them during class to play video games or watch movies and in clinic they use them to play music. The rest of us use the school computers to look at our email.jk5177 said:That's exactly my thought. Why have such a powerful laptop since I won't be type any essays?
