I'd also advise desktops over laptops.Most computer thefts in halls seem to be opportunist thieves taking advantage of unlocked doors and open windows. A desktop is slightly harder for someone to carry off without being noticed.
Eak, hadn't even thought about practical things like kettles and toasters. I was too busy worrying about my laptop and iPod speakers! Just looked at the uni website, and luckily we will be provided with microwaves and kettles. Phew.
Only 2 other people are bringing their coffee makers? I don't think I could live without my proper coffee.
I'm bringing my laptop, TV and my digital camera. I'm not bothering with a stereo because I can just plug my laptop or my ipod into my speakers. I don't need any kitchen appliance either because I've applied for catered halls.
Getting speakers for your laptop or ipod is a really good idea actually, I'm defo gona do that over a stereo.
Also, I just got one of those amazing phones that seems to do everything, incl. taking good photos so I might be okay without a digital camera!
Yeah I've got a Sony Ericsson k750i which has got a good 2.0 megapixel camera on it....was considering getting a cheapish digital camera for drunken nights out at uni but what do other people think. Should I save my money and just use my phone?
I have that phone too, the pics are really good on it. When you upload them you can't tell they're from a phone. Save your cash!
Honestly people don't take a TV/DVD player, a computer with a TV tuner card will be cheaper and will certainly have a equally large screen even if you only have a laptop and the screen quality will be vastly superior. Taking a TV would be like saying that you would rather have a £150 for a TV + DVD player over (for as low as) £20 HDTV with DVD player. Don't take a stereo for the same reason. Having everything separate is not the way to go if you want to save money and space.
I'm just taking the tv and dvd player I've already got. I'm sooo confused now, laptop or desktop arrrrgh
My TV reception was crap, i paid £120 for a TV license which enabled me to watch fuzz....
I was thinking of bringing a kettle, even though I'm in catered. Is there any point or is that dumb? I like caffiene. Lots.
I'm bringing my laptop and my desktop. My laptop has all my songs on it and my desktop is probably better for the net as the laptop is quite slow.
I'm not sure if I'm taking my mini fridge, my friend gave it to me but it is quite loud.
Oh, internet phone too. So I can call my boyfriend for free!
I like instant coffee. I think I'll get a cheap kettle and hope to be allowed to use it. None of this fancy coffee for me.
