I have a T21 which works very well including hibernating/suspending. I
normally just suspend the laptop for long or short periods. When I
suspend it using apm -s, the laptop comes back perfectly with wireless
drivers reloaded, no clock skewednes and sound works perfectly.
For my money, the T21 is a very nice piece of hardware. Mine has 256mb
of memory and I've replaced the hard disk drive in it for a slightly
larger one. Its running debian unstable and a 2.4.17 kernel. I've
found that everyhing "just works" on this laptop. I've messed with the
X series, the A series, the M series, and other T series laptops quite a
bit. The T21 is my favorite. You can find them competitively priced
these days too.
