I finally got one!

First of all, thanks for all the tips you guys have given me.
I finally decided on Trek 4500 from the LBS for my first real bike ever. (I've had a huffy (or can I call it GT?) since I was 12).
I left it stock for now, with the Trek manufactured cranks and wheels, Alivio derailers and a Rockshox Judy. It seems to fit my riding style pretty well (mostly trails) and is pretty comfortable. I can tell this is the right bike for me.
Sorry, no pic

Congrats on the new bike lucky! Now go put some miles on it.
So what color did you get? Is it a 2002?

Yeah, It's a 2002 in the Silver and Red. The other choice was gold and black, but I really didn't like that scheme.
Won't get to put any real miles on it till the 4th, when I get some time off work, then I will have to give my first aid kit a good working over
