The law school you attend will probably recommend a computer because that's what their tech department is familiar with. If you aren't too computer savvy then having a computer that the support staff is familiar with will be important if anything goes wrong. I know GULC recommends Dells. They also recommend getting the three year warranty and accident protection.
I also thought about getting the Latitude X1 because of its size. When I saw one in person, I realized that typing away on that thing for three years would be very uncomfortable because of it's tiny keyboard. If you have small hands, then the X1 might be a good idea. However if you have average size hands, you might want to check out the X1 in person or just play it safe and get a slightly large computer. The Latitude D410 might be up your alley. I'm looking for something very portable, but that won't be uncomfortable to use. I think I'm going to go with the D410.
