I just lost my mind and ordered a Dell XPS 1330 with some of this stuff:

* 64GB Samsung SSD
* Wireless USB
* LED Backlight

and a bunch of other standard crap.

Anyone have any experience with Wireless USB? It comes with a Belkin 5-port hub, so I feel like maybe the lack of a proper docking station (I have been using Acer travelmate 8100, then 8200, which both have the same awesome docking station) will be mitigated by this technology. Power, HDMI, and that's all, the rest is bluetooth keyboard/mouse and wireless USB, shouln't bee too painful.

How about 64GB SSD? These are supposed to be really really fast except for doing lots of small writes. Anyone have this drive? Experience?

Thanks

Should be here Tuesday, I'm excited like I haven't been in a while about a new computer purchase.
