I just got a laptop to take with me to basic next week (mon12th jan) because my m8 who has jus passed out said it helps with the boring admin in the evening but now im not sure if i can take it or not. As its new i dont want to take to the risk of having it taken from me n not returned by the staff etc. What do reckon i shud do? I did think about leaving it at home then getting family to send it if i thought it was ok e.g. if others had thiers with them at basic.
