  • @superbrose Yeah that makes sense except what I've found is that it's very easy to slip into getting totally distracted when you have your laptop on you. Perhaps a good way is to leave your laptop behind when you're highly motivated to be productive so that when your motivation is low, the laptop isn't there at all.

  • @HuongNguyen44 Try working at a public computer between classes, like the computers in the library or d.school.

  • But wouldn't bringing a laptop helps one become more productive during little breaks between classes (when the time is too short to go back to the dorm)?
    Agree on the notebook part. Laptop is def. very distracting during lectures!

  • I'd say if you take your laptop, it's good exercise, increasing your overall fitness. Maybe even add a few extra weights to make the most of it. And regarding laptop usage, why not be more disciplined: give yourself 10 mins to spend on emails, Facebook and instant messaging for the whole day and any other distractions. Use the laptop only when it actually adds value. Just a contrasting opinion from a laptop aficionado...
