    You can bring anything you want. Once the academics start no one really cares about what you have.

    While you can bring it, unless specifically instructed by the staff not to do so, why would you want to if you are planning on using it for connection to the internet? Remember that any computer not issued by the Navy is not allowed to be connected to the network. Yes, they do check to see what is connected.

    Also it is my understanding that the current Plebe class at USNA was issued both desktop and netbook computers. This will likely be the same, although not confirmed just yet, for the incoming Plebe class this summer. Those are the only computers that are allowed to be connected to the network.

    I would recommend holding off on the purchase right now and seeing what the policies are for the new class at NAPS. Each year is a little different and everyone must remember that there is a new CO at NAPS as well as by the end of summer there will be a new Supe at USNA who has final say over NAPS policies.
