I just realized that Dell is not my only option as far as buying my laptop goes...
Other than Dell and HP, what other vendors can I choose from (that will let me choose my configuration and give me a reasonably good laptop at $1500 or below) ?

I second Lenovo, although I'll still recommend Dell over anything else - especially with a $1500 budget.

Toshiba, Acer also in addition to Dell and HP.

You can get alot of good laptops for under 1500

I like my Sony, my Gateway is also good.

personally I'd look at a toshiba with that budget though also maybe voyager... though I don't know how available they would be in your area..... Dell would be okay as long as you stay on the higher end of your budget.... the lower end dells can be real junk.... what ever you decide I'd recommend getting an extended warranty if available....maybe even a "no-fault" if available.... laptop parts are not cheap for the most part...

Yes get the extended warranty, I had a Toshiba Laptop where the DVD Drive went out shortly after the warranty was up

Just so everyone knows, I got a MacBook with my university discount and got an iPod touch in addition to it all for about $1600 (including tax)... not bad considering I got the best version of MacBook (with 4GB of memory too!) and they gave me iLife for free as well!!!
