And if you already have a computer, even an old and crappy one, you probably don't "need" one for college. I had a fairly good computer going into school, but there were a few times when I didn't have one available for about a week at a time, and I was able to get by without owning one. I just used the computer labs - checked my email online, wrote my papers and stored them on my FTP server (the one my school GAVE me, hopefully they give you one as well), and printed pages for 5-10 cents apiece when necessary. Although having your own computer helps a lot, you can still get by without one IF your school has a 24-hour computer lab somewhere. The 24-hour part is important, by the way, if you're anything like me and most other college kids...
