Laptop Shopping Question Oddities

I am looking to buy my first ever laptop. What I would like to know are the following oddities that I haven't gotten much info on yet: 1) Is there typically a time of year when companies all roll out there new systems? And I might be able to take advantage of sales on new systems, or on year old systems? 2) It doesn't seem like Bluetooth is available on very many midrange systems based on my initial scans, do I really need Bluetooth or just want it (for cell phone interaction now, other components in the future perhaps). 3) Are Intel processors really that much better than AMD, or is the extra money to spend on them not the best value? 4) If all I am concerned about is speed, does Vista really slow a new system down a whole lot to be concerned?

BadCetera Experience

Recently, I was shopping at BedCetera.com and ran into some trouble when their website stated shipping time of five days but was then told that things take around a month. Is this a scam to pull people in hoping that they'll pay and then just be bare the extra time? I tried to ask them, but they told me that if I didn't like it to shop elsewhere. If they know of the extra time, shouldn't it be reflected on the website? Is this something that would go to the Better Business Bureau? (I'm in Vancouver Canada) If this issue is justified for a complaint, are there other places that I could warn other consumers. Are there other consumer websites that I could investigate a company before I buy something from them?

Like a watercolor postcard, but neither watercolor nor postcard

In tourist shops there are sometimes prints of watercolor or color pencil drawings of the city. The prints usually come in a bunch of sizes from postcard to 8x10. They cost a few dollars each. I'd like to purchase a bunch of these, but I can't find any online. They're out there, but my Google-Fu isn't finding them. I keep getting stymied at art supply shops and gallery pages. Can anyone find an online vendor for these? Thanks!

I'm going to get a 'customer loyalty card' from Bloom's (aka upscale Food-Lion) supermarket. The terms and conditions don't mention anything about the validity of the information, and I know enough about security and datamining that I don't want to distribute that information. Do they have a policy, or is there any way I could get caught using a fake name/address/telephone no, etc.?
