Should I use my own laptop or the sixth form laptops? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So basically, for Computer Science we need to have laptops to do the work and programming on. Our teacher allows us to bring our own laptops but we can also get one to keep from the sixth form by paying a £30 deposit and then at the end of the course we give it back. So I was wondering which would be better, to bring in my own laptop from home or get one from the sixth form?

    Some advantages I can think of is that my laptop is quicker (the laptops they give aren't that good)

    However, bringing my own could be dangerous of losing / breaking it

    What do you guys think ??

    Bring it

    If the sixth form laptops are anything like my old schools you should bring your own! With school laptops your work can get lost and they just aren't as reliable! You won't lose your laptop! You'll probably guard it with your life!
