I don't go to school because I'm not a nerd.

Back when I did go to school, no laptop unless it was required. Which I think it was in one case. A lot of times I'd need to write things in notes that wouldn't be easy to write in a word processor(like equations) so it wouldn't be worth it taking notes from a laptop.

I do something like a 10" "laptop" albeit I hate the keys. Would like a 11-14 (around 3 pounds or so?) to take notes with. Taking notes on a tablet would seem far far far too slow.

It depends on what you mean by use for school. I don't take notes on it but I have both a laptop and a desktop in my school apartment that I could do school work on.

Yes, I need it to type up lesson plans and use geometer's sketchpad.

I have a laptop that a friend asked me to fix that I didn't even look at for six months because it was payback for stealing my chocolate milk and Oreo cakesters (long story, more significant than it seems). I fixed it by repairing Windows, and now he's in the Marines so I'm the temporary owner.

Don't use it for school, though. I just take it to the bathroom with me when I take a s***.
