    Is there a link to the costs for the lap top anywhere? We promised our son one for his high school graduation. This way we can deposit the amount in his account so he has it when issued at the USAFA.

    Thanks!

    Just an opinion. Wait until after Beast when he is issued his laptop. He'll be able to access any charges that he is responsible to pay (payroll deduction) and then you can transfer the money to him at that point. Just a heads up....the price they pay for laptops is NOT cheap. If my memory is correct it's about $2K.

    Chances are you'll have a slightly newer model of what the 17ers like me have, which is a newer model of the 16ers laptop, which is a newer... you get my point. It'll probably be a Fujitsu tablet. They'll also issue you a separate keyboard and a mouse.

    Fun history. USAFA absolutely dropped the ball for 2010 when they tried to test tablet tech with a GATEWAY. Few computers made it to graduation without massive issues. Prior to that, they were using Dells for many years. 2011 and onward have received Fujitsus.

    2014 got the Fujitsu tablet as well. DD can't wait to give it away! I kid you not her 2008 Macbook works better. I know all the security software makes the issued ones slow. Still for the money.....
