As Jason already mentioned, look at the laptop page. I'm not sure
my ThinkPad, an A31p is on that list. They aren't new, but you can
get one in the $700 range now, and they're perhaps the best laptop
IBM made. You can have three disks in it, too. I've had mine for
three years now and the older A30p before that. Everything but
bluetooth, firewire and the <cough> winmodem works wonderfully.
The sound on the A31p is fantastic too, if that matters to you.
