Hi all,
I don't know if this is a stupid question, but I want to bring my gaming/desktop PC to university with me, but I'm scared of it being stolen/damaged etc. I know most people bring laptops (which I will be as well), but I can't survive without my PC, especially as I'll probably sign up to a lot of gaming/esports societies and hopefully competing in the NUEL for games like League of Legends, where I just can't play on a laptop. Is it a bad idea to bring it?

It will be locked inside your room so it’ll be fine. I couldn’t live without mine either in first year.

As long as you lock your door when you leave your room it should be fine.

Don't advertise that you have an expensive computer in your room and you'll be fine.

I took a TV and three games consoles away with me to uni as well as an expensive laptop. I kept hush about it.

Keep your door locked and don't keep talking about/ advertising about it. It will be fine. My flatmate in first year had one, he told me nothing happened

(Original post by The Serious)
What laptop do you have?
LENOVO IdeaPad S340 14"
Has 8GB RAM and AMD Ryzen 5 3500U Processor.
It can definitely run League and some other games, I just prefer playing on a desktop PC. And sometimes I occasionally stream.

Just keep your door locked, especially if you don't trust your housemates. Avoid telling people that you brought your gaming PC and you should be fine. But, tbh most students would have brought some expensive stuff that they're worried that will get stolen or damaged like laptops, phones, expensive headphones, so don't worry too much and take precautions to look after your stuff
