desktop or laptop

<p>is it better to bring a desktop to dorms or a laptop? </p>

<p>ppl say that laptop is more convenient, but its also stolen easier. or just bring both? dunno</p>

<p>Bringing both would be terribly unnecessary unless you're super hardcore and absolutely need both.</p>

<p>I'm a huge laptop proponent because I just think they're much more convenient, but I know that others prefer Desktops. Your laptop won't be stolen if you're careful with it, and the campus police department offers STOP plating for laptops (<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;.&lt;/p>

<p>the link is faulty :(</p>

<p>Oh, you're back!</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>EDIT: Beat me to it.</p>

<p>Can you clarify a bit of what STOP is?
I'm still kind of lost.</p>

<p>ah, that works. :)</p>


<p>As long as you're smart with your computer, the odds of it being stolen are slim.</p>

<p>However, that does require that you be smart. That's the hard part.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a> This explains it better.</p>

<p>would these STOP stickers reduce resale value on, say, ebay?</p>

<p>I'd imagine so. Most people aren't willing to buy something if it's clearly stolen. But then again, lots of people suck. So who knows.</p>

<p>So wouldn't this hurt you too if you try to resell it?</p>

<p>As far as I can tell, no. I don't see why anyone would be opposed to having an additional measure of protection on his system. But people can be silly, I suppose.</p>


<p>Well you don't exactly take off the sticker when you sell it...</p>


<p>I see now.
I thought the sticker was unqiue to the owner of the mobile equipment.</p>

<p>Yeah, its almost as good as selling car with a boot on it. It'll never get stolen!</p>
