Mine was Dell. My ship date changed from July 1 to July 15,to it will get there sometime by Aug. 30. Unfortunately, I was starting class a week before that. I love the laptop I finally did get (even though its not the one I ordered), but the frustration right before starting class is not what I needed.
Also, be sure to check with your school for specs, especially when it comes to exam software, if you plan on typing.

If you want to use any of the eBooks, you have to have it, but otherwise, I don't consider it too helpful. Personally, I would rather have a hard copy in front of me.

Unless you are picking it up in the store, I would get it now or fairly soon. I ordered mine last year and it took me two months to get it and I had to change my order in order to get it then.

My 1L year was nothing like I expected. I heard all the horror stories and was expecting the worst. Living it, not so bad.

Crunchtime is good if you understand the basic concepts and only need help pulling them together. It so short and concise if definitely won't do you any good if you're struggling with a concept. Stick with Chemerinsky for that. Another upside, it is easy enough to read in a day or two.

It's an easement. Covenants are promises to do or not to do something.

20 hours is the ABA rule for FT students, but you will also want to check with your school to make sure it doesn't have a more stringent rule. Some schools prohibit ALL employment as a 1L. Others limit it to 10 or less hours. Each school can have its own rule as long as its doesn't exceed 20 hours regulated by the ABA.

I know someone who just got one for note-taking, and is pretty pleased with it. Definitely not something you want as a main computer, but sufficient if you want a tiny glorified word processor.

I'm really sorry I said "thirded" now. Sorry. Didn't mean to start a debate  ;)
