General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Laptops
« on: April 06, 2005, 03:27:49 PM »
if you need to use XP pro, the only reason I can think is that you need to join the Law School Domain (which is a bit odd to me from a security persepective and encroaching on your laptop). XP Pro also has remote desktop.  Though if you join the law school domain they can actively

Regarding Thinkpads -  While they have a good reputation my experience is that 1 in 6 or 7 will fail (we have about 40 of them).  Also remember that IBM just sold their PC and laptop business to a Chinese company and will no longer be pruducing them.

i am an IT director and attending law school in the fall.  I see tons of laptops.  They are all a bit hit and miss.  I have seen my share of Dells, Toshiba's, HP/Compaq and IBM Think pads fail.

I suggest looking at or and search for laptops.  There are often good deals to be had.  Be sure to get at least 512 megs of RAM for XP.  CD burner, USB key (purchased separately), built in 802.11g are pretty much what you want to have.  These days the HDs are pretty big and even budget celeron processors are pretty quick.

XP Home is fine, only thing XP Pro will get you is the ability to join a domain and an web server (which 99% of people won't need).

Hi all I am new to the board.  Just got in at rutgers.  I am 32, work full time in NYC and will be going at night. I have a few other apps out (New York Law, St. Johns, Seton Hall ), but it has always been between rutgers and fordham. 

I know fordham ranks higher (and is 3 blocks away from my work!), but the cost is a big factor me.  My wife is in grad school at 1200 a credit no finacial aid!

Anyway, waiting to hear back from Fordham, but I have gut feeling I will be at rutgers.  I like what I have seen so far from them.

Any other 30+ people doing this at night?
