I am not in the Bais Yaakov world, but a laptop is not considered a hand-held device. A smartphone is. A tablet/iPad: probably a machlokes.

Usually they write no computers or handheld devices. Which means basically everything.

handheld devices refers to smartphones and tablets.

Never heard of any BY schools having an issue with laptops.

Exactly. Don't you need to type up papers ever?
There's usually rules about home internet access. So who cares if it's a family laptop or a child's?

Is a desk top better than a laptop. Because she sleep on the top bunk bed so she can take it up and no one sees what she does. We do want have controls but idk if she can go around them.
