    Laptops are offered from Manipal, but should we bring our own?

    I see that Manipal University provides laptops for every incoming student. I would like to know if it is highly recommended to purchase your own. Thanks

    That said I still recommend that you bring your own and refuse the one they "provide you." It takes some work, but you can get your money back for the built in charge for the laptops. But if you don't want the hassle, the ThinkPads are solid machines.

    I also do recommend bringing certain USMLE prep aids from the states. I can get into specifics if anyone is interested.
