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.

It is altogether awesome in every way. I haven't encountered the file structure much yet, but what little I've seen has thrown me slightly.

A couple of unexpected hard-drive replacements ago, I gave up on making my new computer/drive just like my old one. There are a few baseline applications that I always need within moments or days of first boot-up (Mind Manager, NoteTab, Corel Graphics, Chrome, Avast Anti Virus to replace McAfee/Norton fail), and eventually I get my pictures and documents across, and pretty soon I wind up wanting one of the bootleggier media players, and I settle in.

I hadn't thought about a compromised right index finger! Ew!

What should I be thinking about in a new modem and router? I've lost track of the standards. My new computer is WiMax enabled. Am kind of tempted to make that leap. Any thoughts?

I see that you're using Google Chrome. How is that as a browser?

Awesome! Fast, small, simple, effective and powerful. I'm a fan.
