What's currently recommended as a FreeBSD laptop platform?

I'm using an IBM/Lenovo T42 at the moment, but that's shortly going back, so:

Things I like:

   * Suspend to RAM works
   * Nice enough keyboard
   * Workable screen resolution (1024x768, big enough for four xterms)
   * Reasonably light
   * Has a dock -- makes things much easier
   * 1.7GHz CPU is fast enough for my needs (web, e-mail, software
   * Trackpad

Things I don't like:

   * Battery life isn't great
   * Suspend to disk doesn't work
   * No WiFi

Can anyone recommend a laptop with all those features that works with FreeBSD?
