Laptop questions

Hey guys, I'm planning to buy a laptop very soon, and will be going overseas in September. My cousin will be joining me with his laptop, and I was wondering whether it was possible to set up a wireless LAN using just our 2 laptops? I don't have experience outside of setting up a network with a router so I wasn't sure if this was possible. He has XP Media Center while I'll probably have Vista Home Premium, if that makes any difference.

What's a good wired mouse? I had a look at the VX Nano wireless mouse, but I'm not sure if I want to deal with replacing the batteries and losing that dinky little reciever.

Lastly, any recommendations on a bag? I can do messenger/backpack types, but I would prefer some space to place other things inside.

    A computer to computer wireless network is called an Ad Hoc Wireless network. Instructions for XP here, vista shouldn't be that different.

    Laptop bag? You're traveling, so get one that doesn't look like it's a laptop bag or has a big logo on the back that says Targus or something like that because it kinda tells everyone that it is a laptop bag. Just make sure it has a nice amount of padding if you're not that gentle with your electronics.

    Sometimes I have the most horrible dreams. Or maybe they are real. Do dead men dream?
