hey so I had a question about the laptop they give you. is it decent? or a peice of crap? I have my own laptop that I'd like to bring, but I don't know if they'd let me bring my own.



could you guys bring your own laptops? I'd just hate to have the money taken out of my stipend when I just spent tons of money on a laptop for myself.

i think no matter what they'll issue it to you, and its just overall easier to get the standard issue one so it can get quick fixed when it comes to outlook email problems and cac card reading, does your computer even have a card reader?

Not to mention the hassel of getting yours configured for the military network. You really don't want all the crap they mandate on your computer.

No matter what you're going to be issued a laptop. I can't speak for what's coming out next year but the ones they issue aren't too bad. (And since you get them as BCT is winding down it feels like Christmas)
The major perk is if you have a computer problem they have a repair center in Fairchild where you can get a loaner while they fix yours for no cost.

You can bring yours too if you like. I've known a few people who had 2 or 3 computers accumulated by their Firstie year.

OMG are you a spoiled brat.

Take what they give you, it works for everyone else, unless you think your some kind of special or something. In that case you will wash early and the government can save the money on giving you anything.
