    I really prefer working with a desktop computer and not with a laptop for many reasons.
    I'd like to know this: how much will we work with personal computers in the halls? If I'll need my own computer quite a lot, then I think I will bring a small-form-factor desktop computer. Otherwise just a laptop.

    I'm going to study computing, so computers will be quite important for me

    Might worth considering a laptop with proper docking station. Most of the business laptop come with a proprietary docking port
    You can dock the laptop when you are back at home and it still feels like you are using desktop. Best of functionality + portability.

    Yeah +1 for laptop + dock.

    For long coding sessions in halls you definitely want nice monitors and nice keyboard, but having 2 computers will get a little annoying.

    so how much time will I spend studying in my dorm?
    Do students study most of the time in public places, or alone?
