I hope you're kidding, because Trapper Keepers came around after my time, so if you aren't kidding either your mom was really young when she had you, or I'm damned old.

You must think I'm older than I actually am, indra. my mom was around 30 when she had me.

(I'm 26)

it's not too common to see kids with laptops at school here. you might get one student with one in a class, but i've yet to see two. even in large lectures (although i usually can't stay awake long enough to count too high in those classes )

i had a trapper keeper in 3rd grade. it had some funky space-airplanes on it.

I take my laptop to class if the class requires a lot of note taking and I don't want my hand to fall off. Also if the class is boring, I just mess around on the net instead of paying attention.

We rarely have people using them in class. Most freshmen are now coming in w/ laptops instead of desktop and we see them a lot in the library and other buildings like the cafes where there is wireless, but not really in class. However, I go to a small school, so classes are pretty engaged - you have maybe 40 students max per class (except for the HUGE sections of BIO 141) and you're expected to contribute, ask/answer questions, etc or they WILL take points off your grade. So, a laptop is kinda useless unless you type word-for-word what the Prof. and everyone else says. They're not discouraged though and I have seen them in a few classes and never thought anything of it, I just found for myself the laptop and all it's gear is so much heavier than a notebook and pen.
