I would have to second the thinkpad option. I am running etch on a t42 with 1600x1200 resolution and I couldn't be happier. I do have a friend who had some difficulty with getting etch to run on his t60p, mostly because of his video card (ati), but he got that and everything else working.
thinwiki.org is a life saver if you need help firing up Linux on a thinkpad.
