    Thanks for the reply. Do you bring these with you to all of the classes or do they stay in the dorm?

    Are cadets issued entirely new ones each year?
    Sorry for so many questions, this will (hopefully) be my last one.

    You will keep the one that you get as a 4 degree for the entire 4 years that you are there. You actually purchase the computer with your deducted funds during your first two years there, and it is yours to keep after the Academy. In fact, one of the things that I asked our Firstie about as a grad present was a new laptop. He said he was happy with the one that he got at USAFA and didn't need a new one.

    Is it beneficial maybe to have 2 computers for any reason? I got a new laptop because I wasn't expecting to get in, but I did get in! So, now do I have a new laptop that is going to go to waste?

    Two computers doesn't really help or hurt. It might end up being a nuisance if you do work on both though.
