I'll second the Thinkpad recommendation.  If you're worried about
dropping it, Thinkpads are apparently about the most bullet-proof
laptops you can get.  I used mine (T23) to watch The Simpsons on DVD
on a trans-Atlantic flight, but that depends on having an outlet at
your seat.  Oh, and get the airplane power adaptor when you get the
laptop -- it'll be much easier than trying to figure out which adaptor
to get later.  If you just want to work on your laptop when flying,
then many Thinkpads also have the Ultrabay port, and one of the
options for that is an extra battery.  That means your CD/DVD drive
isn't plugged in, but then on battery you wouldn't want to use a
power-hog like that anyway.
