What laptop do you recommend?

I have seen a lot of Thinkpad recommendations and I'd like to give you a
warning here. I'm owning an R40 and it works well driver-wise. But the
USB- and PCMCIA-controller have broken 3 times and the mainboard has
been replaced twice because of this. Now I am out of warranty and a
replacement board costs ~$600.
If you really go for a Thinkpad make sure you have at least a 3 years
warranty plan.
