I recently got an HP nc6220 at work. It has 1400x1050 with i915 (which has
DRM support) though you'll need 915resolution from ports to get 1400x1050
working. It is a centrino box, and the wireless button turns the iwi radio
on and off which is nice. It also has a real DB9 serial port on the right
side near the back.
