Like some of the previous posters, I highly recommend IBM ThinkPad.
Great Linux support (my R31 has been running Debian sid for two
years now), exceptional sturdiness and superb general "feel"
(things like keyboard quality, for example).

Also, the TrackPoint absolutely rules - I use my laptop on average
over 12 hours a day and I haven't touched mouse for more than twelve
hours (combined) in the past year; the TouchPad/GlidePad people
seem to attach mouses to their laptops the first minute they can. :o)

    A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He
    may not seem such a good friend after telling.      -- Arthur Brisbane
