Pardon me while I have a panic attack...  
I just ordered my laptop.

I'd been looking for a LONG time before I posted asking for advice, and I took everything you guys said into consideration, as well as my own experience, and things like cost.

I decided on a Dell Inspiron 15, and I also got myself a cooling stand and a wireless router.

The panic attack line has nothing to do with the fact that I chose a Dell, I know a really good virus software that I intend to put on the laptop, and we've got an old Dell that, thanks to viruses, had to be wiped down to the basics and we just use it for stuff like word processing and some computer games now, no internet, and it works just fine. But it didn't have the really good virus protection that our current comp does and the laptop will, so I ahve confidence in my decision.

The panic attack line is because OMFG I jsut spent $676 all at once... lol... but when I emailed my mom and told her I did it, she said that I'd earned it and didn't need to justify, which made me feel less "AH!!!!" about it...

And the coolness? They said it should be delivered on or before 9/28, so less than 3 weeks and I should have it! Woohoo!

I need to get some of the must move stuff (fic files, graphics, some hard to find pictures) into .zip files so I can transfer stuff easier...

Can you tell I'm excited? lol

Totally understand your excitement! I just bought a new mini-pc (only 10") than I'm gonna have when I travel, and it's so exciting to unpack it and start to transfer stuff, install programs and so on :)
