    I've been wondering. I know that USNA provides computers for all midshipmen, but they're desktop computers. Is it ok for me to own a laptop while at USNA, not necessarily to bring to class, but just to have with me? I understand that it may not be all that necessary due to the nature of plebe life, but I was going to be getting a new laptop as a grad present. Now that I might be accepting an appointment to USNA, I may ask for something else as a grad present. Just wondering, thx!

    Last year Plebes were issued desktops and laptops, I'd take the cash instead :)

    You can leave a laptop at your sponsors house and use it on weekends. Something to consider.

    Ask for an iPhone or Droid instead - you'll get much more use out of it.

    Do you have the option of requesting an iphone or a droid instead of a computer? Wow

    You can request anything from parents and family!

    Requests from USNA? LOL!
