    I am a recent grad. My first couple years at college, bringing a laptop to class was seen as kind of nerdy, even for computer classes, but I would bring mine anyways. Once WiFi was campus-wide(and you could get decent laptops for ~$500), lots of people brought laptops to classes of all kinds.

    Yeah when I first entered no one used laptops no matter how nerdy you are, but I have noticed a lot of freshman this past semester with laptops.. its really annoying.

    All my majors classes were studio in college, but the basics were auditorium style with 150+ ppl. I'd be leery about taking a laptop into that environment, but that's me. A small class wouldn't bother me though.

    in my school (seton hall) you are required to bring your thinkpad to class each day.. (for freshmen) when you are a sophomre you get a computer based on your major (comm majors get macs) and its all included.

    What about really, really boring classes?

    And for non-students, really really boring meetings?

    Same with the university I went to. Everyone that went to that college got a laptop from the school so pretty much everyone brought a laptop into class.

    I just bought a laptop sleeve and then put it in my backpack, dont know what kind it was but it did the job.

    Norwood is a Mid-2010 15 inch MacBook Pro with 10.11.1.
    I brought my laptop to class in its lovely pink case and the professor looked at me funny.

    (Then again, he wasn't a very nice professor, but that's another story.)

    Actually, the main reason I brought the lappy was because I didn't want to print out the 100+ pages of reading that the aforementioned professor assigned.

    Back when I was in school (Advanced computer systesm technology), I was the only person in my entire course with a Mac.. Of course, I heard "mac's suck.. why';d you buy a mac" blah blah blah.. But hey, mine never locked up or crashed when trying to use it for its intended purpose.. Regardless, the case I used for a while, was this aluminum executive style briefcase.. It held my 15" Powerbook perfectly and had a slot for some cd's and a cat5 cable... I then changed to a "Powerdata" padded case as it was bigger and I was getting sick of putting my charger in my pocket. This Powerdata case I have is pretty slick.. It has a sleeve that the laptop goes in, then you put that sleeve in the actual case.. So if I did want to use my backpack (which I'm thinking of doing), I could just use that sleeve and not the entire case.

    I use a standard Targus Laptop case that has a front flip to hold cellphone, cigarettes, pens, etc. and a part on back to place papers. I rarely take books to class if I even buy them since I noticed many professors teach from lecture notes.
