The cost could be added to the other qualified education expenses if you are eligible for the American Opportunity Credit if you are not claimed as a dependent or for someone who claims you if they are eligible.
Yes, but only if you're required to buy it for class (for example if you're enrolled in an online-only course).
If you bought a school computer out of convenience (in other words, you could complete the class without it), you cannot deduct it.
Note: For the Lifetime Learning credit, you can only deduct equipment expenses that were purchased directly from the education institution.
