stealing in dorms?

hi.
i am going to be living in a dorm this fall. we got to pick our roomates and i am going to be with my friend from first grade, so i dont really have the problem of her stealing stuff.

but i was looking into a laptop to buy. and my mom argues that "dont buy anything expensive stuff gets stolen"

.......im sure the dorm rooms have locks dont they?
i really want a good laptop and i have to convince my mom that it wont get stolen haha.

1) do you have any 'horror stories' to share about stolen/broken/missing things while away at college?

and number 2) what kind of stuff did you bring? clothes wise... i have no idea.
