So I'm pretty psyched about getting some reading material in the mail, but one of the things in there that bugs me a little is the computer requirements. I knew that they required a computer (and YAY that they're letting me bring a mac -- can't wait until leopard comes out!), but I didn't know about the pda. They seem excessive and unnecessary. Current NYU students, do you guys actually use these things? If I'm getting one, I might as well get a smartphone -- wish the iphone was coming out CDMA though... sigh.

Rambling on,
Mack

I've heard good things about the Dell Axim, but rumor has it that Dell may be getting out of the PDA market in the future. Should I still look into it?

I was shocked to find out that NYU wants their students to get PDAs too. I wonder what theyre gonna have the students use it for? Oh and I heard the first generation iphones aren't going to be so great.

i also wonder the same thing you need one when your also required to carry a laptop. Now pda's suck when it comes to medical software but they have a great battery life. one thing is if your getting a pda you might as well get a treo phone that way u dont need to carry a phone, pda, laptop, and does anyone know if they give lockers to students in nyu? thx

I don't know why you nerds keep talking about computers, but if a school requires public displays of affection, sign me up (provided they can also find me a really hot new york guy) !!!! :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:;);)

What are the PDAs used for? I know it may be helpful when you start clinics, but why require one so early.

i use my pda to listen to music on the way to school... thats about it..
although they say we'll be using it next year for the epocrates program...
some people also download their schedule in it since the class's labs and conferences are split up, but i just memorize when and where...

and yeah, we get 2 lockers- one right next to the lab we work in for our instruments and another one somewhere in the building for coats/bags- although freshmen get real skinny lockers that barely fit a bookbag...

What about a Blackberry? Pros/cons? I know nothing about PDAs, so I'm just tossing this out there for discussion.
