Ok. So I have a 5 year old laptop. It works fine, but it is not very fast and does not have DVD/graphics or anything. I've been getting mixed messages from medical students. Some of them say a good laptop is important for histology/anatomy slides ya ya ya. Are any of you going to spend the money to get a new computer and why. Does anyone use their laptop all the time in med school?? Is is worth the investment or should I just keep my old one?? PS I hate tablet PC's so I'm not even considering buying one. I may be able to sell my computer now... but 4 yrs? Probably not. Sigh... this all comes out to money and getting myself ahead... I still have sticker shock for tuition. Sorry if there is already I thread... I searched but could not find it.
