My dell inspiron 9400 works quite well, except for
1. Card reader
It does get a bit warm, but not more than when I am running windows.
Battery time was also pretty much the same
It's no longer in production, but i believe the replacements are the
inspiron 1720 and the xps 1730
I am not sure if the newer 4965 802.11n wifi chipset that are
currently available would be supported, but you could opt for the 3945
