Rather than typing in an entry with a keyboard, the 1970's Style Laptop Notebook forces you to put pen to paper to record your ideas. Although it's low-tech alternative to bringing a personal computer to class, it's also a much more lightweight and affordable option.
The notebook has a sarcastic cover that shows off your sense of humor, plus lined pages that make it perfect for taking notes in class. The notebook may not have as much storage as the modern computer, but it's inexpensive enough to replace when its lined pages are all filled up. Unless you rip out a page from the book, you really don't have to worry about losing any data, or the notebook becoming corrupt from being infected by a virus.
