Wow. This is really nice

This computer! It has so much SCREEN OMG. And the keyboard! It lights up! But not too much, just enough to find the unusual keys in a dark room.

And it has a fingerprint reader, an add-on that I thought lame until serenity_valley demonstrated why I needed it--because instead of typing in a password you just rub your fingertip over the little indentation. Shut up. There's nothing untoward about it.

I still haven't figured out the problem with Vista, because so far it's just like XP only slightly flashier, and is giving me no grief at all.

So, in short, I am a very happy Dell customer, and you don't know how old and crappy your old and crappy computer was till someone steals it and forces you to get a new one.

Ha! Yep, computer porn. Doesn't mean what you thought it meant.

I used Thinkpads at a recent software convention (they were the laptop of choice for general-use deployment all around the convention floor) and I have to say, the keyboards on those things had by far the best tactile feel and key travel and sheer happy typingness of any laptop I've ever tried.

This wasn't a tie-breaker for me in deciding on the Dell, but it was one of those features that's so noticeably better than what the competition offers that I did think about it.
