Remember that the late registration deadline for laptop registration is January 31, 2013. I recommend forking over the absurd registration fee and using your laptop. Most of us type faster than we write, and when your hand cramps up from exhaustion in the afternoon session, your handwriting will turn to limp chicken scratch. Plus, instead of making messy cross-outs and using arrows, you will have the ease of deleting or rewriting bits and pieces of your essays. Unless you are used to handwriting exams, you want to type!
