Get a R52, T42 (best of the lot), T43, X40 or X41 (non-tablet).
The T43 is the more powerful and newer of all of those, the T42
is the best thinkpad ever produced so far, IMHO. I own a T43.

Those *will* give you trouble for now. I speak this as the
maintainer for the kernel thinkpad-acpi module :-P As time passes,
we will learn enough about them to support them better.
But yes, if you can get a Thinkpad with a Brightview wide-angle-view,
non-glossy high-DPI screen, go for it. There's nothing better.
