it also gets hot

Do some reading on the processors, not sure if this holds true with mobile CPUs, but I recall reading that the desktop Core i7 tended to run hotter than the desktop Core i5/i3 (or was the difference a Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge thing? Or are those synonymous? Can't remember). So if heat might affect your decision, that may be more of a factor than manufacturer.

(and has the fan on the right side where the mouse would be - weird)

But yeah, that's a Toshiba thing, for sure - that's weird. My Acer runs fairly hot when it's doing anything 3D, but the fan blows sideways on the left, near the back corner, not too bad. The Dell I use for work though blows down out the bottom, which means I can only keep it on my lap for so long - I don't have that problem with my Acer.
