My situation is a little different than most college students I think. My school has what are known as "satellites" of the main campus where you can go to take the basic general education classes before moving onto the main campus which is what I chose to do. Basically it was just community college, except not called that. The class sizes were small only about 15 people a class max. I had a laptop and would have loved to take notes on it but nobody else in my class ever did, we all just used paper which was a huge pain for me because I'm a terrible writer and can barely read my own notes half the time because writing fast and legibly is not manageable. Anyway I'm now done my two years of general education and I'm ready to go to the main campus where I will be living. So I will finally be in a real college setting. I bought my new MBP two days ago in preparation because I feel like a laptop is going to be a necessity, and it says that all incoming freshman are required to have a laptop so I'm assuming that they make good use of them in the freshman classes there. I'm just hoping that people actually use them in class to take notes, I don't want to be the only person doing it because I would feel awkward, and I don't want people to think I'm showing off or whatever. tl;dr Do you take your laptop to class to take notes? How many other people in your class take notes on a laptop if any?
